King Von & 21 Savage Drop Animated Video “Don’t Play That”

Published

on

King Von was an expert storyteller, rendering scenes from his early life in O-Block and his later life as a rising rap star in vivid detail. Today, Von’s estate shares an animated clip for “Don’t Play That” ft. 21 Savage, a banger that is already one of the late artist’s most successful singles to date. Produced by Kid Hazel, a Slaughter Gang sound architect, “Don’t Play That” finds both rappers flexing stutter-stepping flows over whirring production, making sure the world knows they don’t mess around. Directed and animated by Cartuna, the new video for “Don’t Play That” renders Von, 21, and Von’s home neighborhood of O-Block in cartoonish computer animation. The animation adds a whimsical twist to the two artists’ O-Block exploits, ranging from one-night escapades to Hellcat joyrides to high speed police chases.

Released last week, “Don’t Play That” was an immediate success, generating 1.4M+ Apple Music streams, 1.2M+ Spotify streams, and 1.1M+ YouTube streams in just its first 24 hours of its release. “Don’t Play That” is the lead single from What It Means To Be King, a posthumous album from Von and a testament to his continuing legacy. What It Means To Be King is packed with the ferocious bars and gripping narratives that earned him a huge fanbase, but also hints at some of the directions he might have taken if he had more time. With contributions from some of the people who knew Von best, including regular producer and collaborator Chopsquad DJ and more to be revealed in the coming weeks, What It Means To Be King arrives on March 4th via Only The Family/EMPIRE.

What It Means To Be King puts an exclamation point on Von’s legacy, confirming his status as the best storyteller of his generation. A worthy follow-up to Von’s GOLD-certified debut Welcome To O-Block, the upcoming album is a bittersweet treat for fans, and a moment of closure for those who loved him most.

Long Live King Von.

Doodie Lo & Kodak Black Star in “ISTG Pt. 2” Video

Doodie Lo commands tracks with his easygoing rasp and take-no-prisoners persona. Continuing a breakout year for the Kankakee, IL native, Doodie Lo shares ISTG Pt. 2,” a new collaboration with Kodak Black. The new releases remixes “ISTG,” a buzzing single released by Doodie Lo earlier this year. “ISTG Pt. 2” revels in the electric chemistry between the two rappers, as Kodak complements Doodie’s brashly confrontational verse with an impish one of his own: “It’s all good ’til it’s all bad/That n**** all cap, can’t wait to get up with his soft ass,” snarls Kodak. Directed by Jerry Production, the video for “ISTG Pt. 2” finds the dynamic duo mobbing with a crew at a private hangar, where they sip their favorite beverages before hopping on a jet.

“ISTG Pt. 2” is the latest salvo in a busy year for Doodie Lo, following recent singles like “Back Bone,” “FACE,” and the Icewear Vezzo-assisted “Melrose,” as the artist looks to make his mark with his street anthems. Last year, Doodie Lo made an impact with Big Doodie Lo, the artist’s debut full-length project. The mixtape is home to “Me & Doodie Lo,” an energetic collab between King Von and Doodie that originally appeared on OTF’s Loyal Bros compilation (and racked up over 13.8 million YouTube views), in which the legendary O-Block native gives Mr. Kankakee an enthusiastic co-sign. Over the past year, Doodie Lo has considerably grown his profile, gaining tens of thousands of YouTube subscribers and Spotify Monthly Listeners, and collaborating with heavy hitters like MoneybaggYoPoohShiestyBIG30, and more.
