DaBaby and Roddy Ricch load up on heavy artillery and face down with the undead in the epic new “Rockstar” video.
Not to be confused with Nickelback’s hit of the same name, DaBaby and Roddy Ricch’s “Rockstar” is a different breed altogether. A melodic bout of menacing gangsta rap, the Blame It On Baby highlight quickly became a chart-topping success. Therefore, it’s no surprise to see the pair unite for a massive new video, channeling The Last Of Us energy in an unexpected thematic turn. That’s right, in the Reel Goats-directed clip our heroes must contend with legions of the undead, with only their heavy artillery and hardened “Rockstar” hearts to guide them.
In many ways, the video has everything you might ask for. Action, check. Horror elements– albeit mild– check. Scenic views and a luxurious setting that grounds DaBaby and Roddy as one-percenters, check. There’s even an extended intro sequence that fleshes out the world, a testament to DaBaby’s underrated qualities as a visionary. Expect this one to enhance “Rockstars” already thriving life cycle, as a music video often does, and look for more clips to surface as DaBaby continues his quest for another platinum record.
