Polo G, has unveiled two new videos for “33” and. “Wishing For A Hero” from his sophomore album, “THE GOAT”.
The first visual offering from “THE GOAT” since its release is “33”, directed by Ryan Lynch. We see a young Polo G hanging with his crew in the eerie and saturated streets of Chicago. Posted outside the Chicago Theater, Polo G delivers his pain-stricken bars about the dangerous streets of Chi-raq. The song is named after the number of Chicago Bull’s legend Scottie Pippen, but the song has little to do with him, or basketball.
“High off ecstasy and that codeine what I’m sippin’ (What I’m sippin’) This new Glock got thirty-three, Scottie Pippen (Scottie Pippen)”.
Wishing For A Hero (feat. BJ The Chicago Kid)
Polo G delivers a powerful message in his second video he released from “THE GOAT”. “Wishing For A Hero” featuring Chicago representer, BJ The Chicago Kid is a song that targets police brutality in the Black community. Polo G raps bars speaking on the struggle of black people in America, over a beat that samples Tupac’s Changes. He even mentions in an interview that Changes is one of his favorite songs of all-time. The DrewFilmedIt directed video shows imagery of black people protesting in the streets holding signs stating “Black Lives Matter” and “Blue Lives Murder”. Fellow rising Chicago rapper King Von makes a guest appearance in the video receiving a package in an assumed drug transaction. Polo G shows that he has range in his raps. “Wishing For A Hero” shows that the young star can see the unjust legal system that millions of poor families are suffering in everyday.
“Stuck in the system, they just watchin’ us fail while they sittin’ back
The government cuttin’ checks, but can’t cut a n*gga some slack
It’s hard to get a job, so we hustle and flip a pack”
