Polo G has dropped fresh music videos for two cuts off his latest album, Hall Of Fame: the emotional “Painting Pictures,” and the DaBaby-assisted “Party Lyfe.”
The visual for “Painting Pictures” was directed by Ryan Lynch and is dedicated to the rapper’s late friend, Edward Bryant, whom Polo references in the lyrics. “This shit could lead to death and jail, it’s crazy how they all was right / I was playin’ AAU with Ed, it was ball is life / Wish I could’ve warned him in advance ’fore he lost his life / Game time, call troopers for backup before we call for Christ,” Polo spits on a particularly potent verse.
The video is set in the rapper’s hometown of Chicago, where he gifts his friends expensive jewelry, gives out money to children, and raps while hanging out with his community. It ends with an old clip of and in tribute to Bryant.
On the other hand, the music and visuals for “Party Lyfe” take a sharp turn from the sombre mood of “Painting Pictures.” Polo and DaBaby rap about their hedonistic party habits over upbeat guitar loops and bumping 808s. “Even when it’s blue, the flame ain’t hotter than this / Weed, prescription drugs, I had it all in my piss,” Dababy raps on his cheeky verse.
The rappers party in a big, liquor-stocked house with friends and beautiful women in the exhilarating “Party Lyfe” visual.
Polo’s third and latest album Hall Of Fame dropped last week, with the 20-track LP featuring collaborations with the likes of Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj and Roddy Ricch. The rapper has also released accompanying visuals for other cuts off the album, such as “Rapstar” and “Gang Gang.”
