Gucci Mane, Migos and Lil Yachty Show Off Their Diamonds in New “Solitaire” Video
April came and went without Gucci Mane's promised release of Glacier Boyz, a collaborative project from himself, Migos and Lil Yachty. But for those willing to forgive Guwop, the Atlanta supergroup is back today (May 22) with visuals for their March single, "Solitaire."
The video, directed by Clifton Bell, finds the rappers in a reflective, geometrically paneled room, like they're trapped inside a diamond. It's an appropriate setting for a posse cut about the extent to which each member is iced out.
Over Da Honorable C.N.O.T.E.'s winking arcade game chords, Takeoff, Quavo, Yachty, and Gucci trade bars about their bejeweled wrists, with both featured Migos members memorably commenting on their jewelry's impact on global warming. "Fiji water, talking Aquafina glass, crystal clear/Ice there, ice here, I just iced the atmosphere," Takeoff raps.
Gucci announced early last month that a joint full-length from the group would be released on April 13. The project is yet to drop, although Gucci did let loose in April a compilation featuring artists signed to his 1017 Eskimo Records label, including Hoodrich Pablo Juan, Z Money and Lil Wop.
The rapper, born Radric Davis, has released "Real Rich" with Wiz Khalifa and "Pineapple" with Ty Dolla $ign and Quavo in recent months, as well as been up for the crown against T.I. about who invented trap music. He also bought a Ferrari and offered Metro Boomin' $1 million to come out of retirement. It sounds like he's doing well.
Unfortunately, the Glacier Boyz project has not received a new release date, but until then, you can watch the video for "Solitaire" below.
