They call themselves Rich Gang for a reason. And in the latest video from the Young Money offshoot, we see the spoils that a successful rap career can bring.
The “Lifestyle” video is technically credited as a song by Rich Gang featuring Young Thug and Rich Homie Quan, but in reality, Thugga and Quan are the only voices we hear rhyming on the track, though Birdman provides some classic slick-talk, too. From private planes to expensive cars and lavish homes, it’s all here.
It’s no surprise, really, that Thug is side-by-side with Birdman, as he’s been linked to YMCMB for some time now.
“We signed forever,” he told MTV News of his affiliation with the crew prior to the 2014 BET Awards on Sunday. “It’s not no 300, it’s not no 100, 250 — whatever you call it, it’s a lifetime warranty, you dig? It’s in and out. Blood in, blood out.”
And as the new music continues to flow — and there will be “a lot,” according to Birdman — you can expect some Rich Gang members to appear alongside Young Thug.
“I’m gonna do something for my project and [Nicki’s] project because we’re family and it wouldn’t be right if I just did hers, and it won’t be right if she just did mine,” he said, before adding, “I recorded a million tracks with Wayne already.”
Birdman also added that he plans to drop a Rich Gang album in August, which will be spearheaded by Thug and Quan, and include features from artists on the label.
