The Spike Jordan-directed visual focuses on a group of kids who are so eager to see Nav, Gunna and Travis Scott (who makes a short cameo) in concert that they remorselessly hack off other people’s limbs as their tickets in. An equally savage bouncer collects each arm and leg at the door, but that’s not even the spookiest part. ATL-based producer and the song’s namesake Wheezy also appears before shape-shifting into a wave and disappearing altogether.
Scott personally delivers his infamous and rather timely ad-lib “It’s lit!” in the middle of a lightning storm. The Houston rapper previously linked up with Nav and Gunna on “Yosemite” from his Billboard 200-topping and Grammy-nominated album Astroworld, as well as “Turks” from Nav’s No. 1 album from last year Good Intentions.
“Young Wheezy” was featured on Nav’s second album of 2020, Emergency Tsunami, which debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard 200 last November at No. 6.
