Rapper YFN Lucci reveals the real-to-life music video for his thought-provoking single, “America,” featuring Bigga Rankin. The song touches on the painful experiences of surviving life in America, especially in the hood, and the remedies used to cope.
The accompanying clip sees YFN Lucci roaming through his inner-city. The video launches with the message: “Slow down young ni**a. If you speed through life, you’re gonna miss some of the signs. ‘Cause you can’t always trust what you see all the time. My ni**a, even salt look like sugar.”
ABOUT YFN LUCCI:
Singing and rapping with the same fiery force, YFN Lucci represents the next evolution of the Atlanta sound. Inking a deal with Think It’s A Game Records (TIG Records) in 2014, he quietly developed into one of his city’s most influential voices. Following the success of Wish Me Well, he unleashed Wish Me Well 2 in 2016. It yielded the platinum-certified smash “Key to the Streets” (feat. Migos & Trouble), which amassed over 70 million Spotify streams, turned up a high-profile remix with Lil Wayne, 2 Chainz, and Quavo, and landed on XXL’s “50 Best Hip-Hop Songs of 2016” and Vibe’s “The 60 Best Songs of 2016” list. Forbes proclaimed YFN Lucci among “5 Breakout Hip-Hop Artists to Watch This Summer,” and Billboard dubbed him one of the “Top 10 Hip-Hop & R&B Artists to Watch in 2017.” He’s lived up to those claims with his EP Long Live Nut, which spawned platinum-selling #1 hit single “Everyday We Lit” with over 610 million cumulative streams, and album Ray Ray From Summer Hill [TIG Records / Warner Records]. Also, 2019’s “All Night Long” (feat. Trey Songz) reached the top 10 at Urban Radio.
