Paras Griffin/Getty ImagesRapper Juicy J has dropped the visual for his single, “Spend It,” featuring Lil Baby and 2 Chainz.
The John Tashiro-directed visual was exclusively premiered on Facebook Watch, and finds Juicy J working at “J.J’s Exotic Used Car lot, ” where he’s trying to convince a woman to blow a bag on a used vehicle. Meanwhile, Baby is busy collecting his coins at the pawn shop. 2 Chainz doesn’t appear in the video.
“Spend It” was featured on Juicy J’s latest album, The Hustle Continues, which dropped last November. The Memphis native had previously released a music video for “Load It Up,” another track on the album, featuring fellow Memphis rapper NLE Choppa.
Another Memphis native making noise is rapper Tyke T, with his Jon Rych-assisted single, “Lottery.” The nostalgic track features Tyke’s lyrical stylings about the moment he met his wife. Tyke pleads his case during a stage performance for his woman in the accompanying cinematic visual, inspired by one of his musical icons, Michael Jackson.
“Michael Jackson is the GOAT. He has always been one of my inspirations from a music and visual artist perspective,” says Tyke. “We all remember how we felt the first time we saw ‘Thriller,’ or ‘Remember the Time.’ I know I have a long way to go, but that’s the feeling I want to give people with my visuals, and ‘Lottery’ is just the beginning of that!”
“Lottery” is taken from Tyke’s 2020 album, R.O.N.A., an acronym for “Ready for Not Adjust.” Tyke, the president of his record label, Driven By Music Entertainment, is widely known for his 2017 projects ThePrelude and The 30-Day Mixtape, featuring fellow Memphis artists.
