One week after teaming up with DJ Snake, Offset, Gucci Mane and Sheck Wes for the high-profile collaborative single “Enzo,” Atlanta’s 21 Savage revisits his critically-acclaimed 2018 studio album, I Am > I Was, for his latest visual. Specifically, the musician links up with director WALU and heads to a handful of luxurious Los Angeles locales for the glossy video in support of “ball w/o you.”

“I’m going back gangsta, I’m going back to what brought me in the door,” 21 Savage told XXL in April of last year, sharing his own explanation of the sound and sonic direction of I Am > I Was. “I wanna get back on some gangsta shit ’cause I feel like everybody rap about money and cars. Like they say I rap about too much guns and shit, but that’s what the hell be going on. That’s what really be going on, like, in real life. … Everybody don’t have a Bentley in real life. It’s a lot of people that got guns that ain’t got shit. So, I be trying to go back more. I’m tryin’ to go back more to that side … not promoting it, but just, voicing it. Like being they voice ’cause the rest of America don’t hear them type [of] people. It’s very few people who can speak for them. So, that’s what I wanna go back to.”
