Young Scooter has a natural respect for his OGs, and had no problem saying so on “Street Lottery.” With the help of Bun B, the bouncy title track finally gets taken from wax to the small screen with a smooth visual.
The self-described “street’s dictionary” recalls being inspired to get money by hustlers he encountered at the tender age of nine. Since then it’s been all she wrote, and his sentiments have been to get cash at any cost.
“Growing up as a young n***a, young n***a riding with them OGs/I know the streets in and out, you can call me the street lottery” chants the chorus. Scooter’s jargon follows suit, while the Trill OG kicks a verse full of wisdom and details how the game used to be.
The video follows the Black Migo Gang rapper spitting from a rooftop and traveling through multiple cities, including the Big Apple. An impromptu cut scene of a conversation between Gucci Mane and Scooter is perhaps the most entertaining moment in the treatment. Credit that to ATL based videographer Cam Kirk, who handled the directorial duties.
His upcoming project Street Lottery 2 is set to release on July 4. See the vid for “Street Lottery” below.
