Fresh off his ‘Magnolia‘ video, Playboi Carti is back with the official music video for ‘wokeuplikethis’. Off his self-titled project, both records instantly catapulted Carti into a household name and a new found fame. Also thanks large in part to Jay Z who said Carti influenced him for 4:44, that nod means more than one can imagine.
Circling back to his project, the Lil Uzi Vert assisted cut, wokeuplikethis also is a record that was influnced. Insert Jay Z’s wife Beyonce who famously used the line on a record of her own, ‘Flawless’. So this could be where the connection between Hov and Playboi meets. Regardless this video was long overdue.
Taking place in a prison with incarceration being the theme I am not too sure about this. Nonetheless the song is fire so I can give it a pass this time.With that being said check out the official music video for ‘wokeuplikethis’ on Tidal and check out a clip below.
