Yo Gotti Is “Legendary” in New Video
Yo Gotti drops the music video for “Legendary” on 102thebeatfm today (Jan. 27). The CM8 cut is a standout on the mixtape and receives fitting visuals as the Memphis native raps in front of an beaturiful mansion. The Breezy TV-directed video is simple but crisp, featuring Gotti celebrating his success.
“We legendary in the streets, we come from that ultimate hustle, that ultimate grind. We come from nothing and we made something,” Gotti said to XXL over the phone. “We just celebrating success and being legendary hustlers and enjoying the moment. A lot of music I’m doing right now and a lot of visuals, we’re just having fun with it and showing that we’re having fun.”
Life has been great for Gotti over the past couple of years. His album I Am was released in 2013 and debuted at No. 7 on the Billboard 200 chart. Most recently, Gotti’s latest single “Down In THe DM” is the No. 31 single on the Billboard Hot 100 chart and climbing. The song is being played everywhere in the clubs and is currently the No. 1 record at Urban radio stations. The Ben Billions and Schife Karbeen-produced banger is off of Gotti’s highly anticipated upcoming album The Art of Hustle. The song also got the attention of Angela Simmons, Gotti’s not-so-secret crush.
Gotti spoke to us about The Art of Hustle previosuly and explained how he wants it to be deeper. “Yeah, yeah. I wanna get deeper, you know, let people know where I come from,” he said. “What it was like growing up, the house, the women that was there, my aunties and everybody being in the streets, the downfall to it, them going through their prison time, federal prison time, getting back out and being hustlers in different forms. And all the valuable lessons and shit I learned from watching them and being in the streets myself and going through my own [situation]. So I want it to be a story on this album.”
