Lupe Fiasco f/ Ty Dolla $ign “Next To It”
The summer’s best hybrid of catchiness and cleverness finally sees a video release as Lupe Fiasco & Ty Dolla $ign connect for the “Next To It” visuals above. They don an all-black look for the contrast to the all-white background that Lu has used in previous videos for “Lamborghini Angels (ITAL Roses) x Audubon Ballroom” and “Dumb It Down”. The lyrics and references Lu drops in the lyrics come to life, perhaps most humorously with, “Anything look good with a titty next to it, And if the titty got a face that’s pretty next to it…”
More chuckles ensue as you carefully watch the video and listen to the lines and now, I have a renewed desire to keep “Next To It” in rotation even longer. #TetsuoSeason resumes!
