Meek Mill, Saweetie, Smokepurpp and More: Videos This Week
Are you looking for new hip-hop videos? You're in the right place. XXL sets some time aside every week to compile the latest and greatest in new rap videos for you, making your Friday nice and smooth, like it should always be. Check out this week's offerings and head right into the weekend.
Meek Mill is known for his poignant stories about inner-city life, displaying an honesty and vulnerability that comes from experiencing tough times. The video for his Championships standout "Oodles O' Noodles Babies" doesn't feature the Philly MC at all; instead actors to tell a story of a family split up by poverty and the streets. The video is striking and just as moving as the song.
Saweetie has carved out a space for herself in hip-hop, using her edge and personality to make music that stands out. While "My Type" isn't new, the video for it is, now reworked to coincide with the TV show Claws. With cameos from the shows characters, Saweetie fits right in, sitting on a throne while spitting her verse.
Smokepurpp, a 2018 XXL Freshman, recently dropped his project Lost Planet 2.0, releasing a flurry of corresponding videos. The latest is "Walk On Water," where Purpp spends most of his time in the studio surrounded by his friends. He's been breaking out the dance moves more often lately, with this video being no exception. Of course, his crew joins in on the fun.
