Young Gii — the born and raised Bahama/Chicago transplant — drops the visuals to his first single off his next mixtape I Am Young Gii (Extended) and let me tell you that if you’re at work you might want to wait till you get to the crib. Directed by Andre Velez — of Wava Media — the video is full of that braggadocios bravado and of course some serious eye candy to stroke anyones ego!
Young Gii has definitely come a long way and with his passion to become more than just a local rapper, “Ego” is just a preview of whats to come from Young Gii in 2013. If you want more info and his other mixtapes — I’m So Ill hosted by the well-known Chicago DJ Sean Mac, Step Into My World and I Am Young Gii hosted by the legendary Don Cannon — head on over to iamyounggii.com.
Dubbed as his first “viral video” Drake keeps the visual simple with a bevy of women, presumed loud and beach volleyball (I guess that’s the wave in T. Dot). With all the black-lights its tough to decipher the motivation behind the video; perhaps Drizzy is just going along with the song, surrounding himself with the members of his team. His upcoming project Nothing Was The Same should be out later this year
