Gunna‘s not hiding from his public enemy status with Young Thug loyalists — instead, he’s embracing the villain role in his new “Rodeo Dr.” video by likening himself to O.J. Simpson!!!
Veteran director Spike Jordan captured Gunna zipping all through California as they reenacted O.J.’s infamous 1994 police chase … the same one he led cops on for nearly an hour after he was charged with murdering his ex-wife Nicole Brown and Ron Goldman.
The song is featured on Gunna’s new album and the YSL rapper mentions the chase on the track’s chorus … “Helpin’ the P out, I’m beamin’ on Narcos/Thinkin’ I should take the Bronco, yeah/O.J., yeah)/Gotta go get it tomorrow.”
Many fans, and even artists, have ripped Gunna since he got out of jail back in December … claiming he snitch on Thug get out — but he restates his allegiance to YSL on the track with the line, “I’m still doin’ it for Jeff and Lil Keed.”
O.J. was found not guilty of the murder, and Gunna will avoid jail time as long as keeps his nose clean in accordance with his probation. Not a direct parallel, but obviously, Gunna thinks it’s close enough.
His album has plenty of juice this year … it spawned his biggest hit to date with “Fukumean” … which has since proven to be tasty ex-girlfriend bait.
Waiting for your permission to load the Instagram Media.
