Maryland rapper .idk. holds nothing back on his rendition of this 50 Cent classic from 2002. His heavy hitting bars are directed right at the fake, industry gangstas and snitches fueled by social media. Filmed on the streets of LA, the music video takes aim with grainy imagery of ice, guns, lean and the backseat of luxury cars. Enjoy this video stream below after the jump and please share this with friends.

DMV rapper .idk. (Ignorantly Delivering Knowledge) has been on a hot streak since his standout year in 2017. His 2018 single “No Wave” featuring tourmate Denzel Curry gave .idk. a catchy, bass-heavy track that lead to over three million Spotify plays. A more recent drop however, was .idk.’s braggadocious “Lil Arrogant” with Joey Bada$$ and Russ, which immediately landed in the Top 10 on SoundCloud and continues to rise. After releasing the critically-acclaimed album IWASVERYBAD in partnership with Adult Swim, embarking on a sold-out European tour with Joey Bada$$, and an explosive performance at the inaugural Rolling Loud SoCal festival last December, he was rightfully named one of the “Best New Artists of 2017” by Pigeons and Planes and was featured in Red Bull’s 2018 “Artists To Watch” Campaign. IWASVERYBAD is a vivid autobiography of the 25-year-old’s life: it explores the narrative of .idk.’s adolescence – a journey of loss, redemption and eventual triumph- retelling the moments that led to his teenage incarceration and confronting the loss of his mother. Featuring guest appearances from Chief Keef, Swizz Beatz, DOOM, Del The Funky Homosapien, Yung Gleesh, Mother Marygold and more, IWASVERYBAD earned a spot on several major publication’s “Best of 2017” lists including Vulture’s “Best Albums of 2017 So Far,” Genius’ “50 Best Albums of 2017,” Noisey’s “36 Best Overlooked Albums of 2017,” and DJ Booth’s “50 Best Hip-Hop and R&B Albums of 2017.” Most recently, the young rapper released the fiery new single “Star” and embarked on the “Mad Man Tour” with A$AP Ferg and Denzel Curry, performing in cities across the United States.
