Ralo’s rise from homelessness and selling drugs to becoming one of the most promising emcees is a testament to the importance of hip-hop. Coming off the release of the second installment of his Famerican Gangster mixtape, the 22-year-old rapper decided to release the visuals for his YFN Lucci-assisted track, “Dopeman.”
Directed by Marc Diamond, Ralo and Lucci find themselves inside a laundromat, where they attempt to clean up their dirty money hoarded from the dope game. And while it may seem as if Ralo glorifies the thug life, he doesn’t. He’s very remorseful.
“I had to grind for everything, this sh*t wasn’t brought to me/I’m sorry mama, I ain’t become the man you thought I’d be/If you my dawg then why the f**k you keep on dogging me,” Ralo raps.
The budding rapper recently inked a coveted record deal with Gucci Mane’s 1017 Eskimo Records. Famerican Gangster 2 was released on February 12, and features the likes of 21 Savage, Young Thug, Lil Uzi Vert and others.
