At the end of last year, 21 Savage released his second studio album, I Am > I Was, which is a great artistic leap forward for the budding rapper. Now back in support of the LP, 21 shares the official music video for one of the project’s standouts in “A Lot” featuring J. Cole.

The visual arrives on the first day of Black History Month, as 21 Savage challenges fans to contemplate black future and black culture. Directed by Aisultan Seitov, “A Lot” delivers hidden messages pertaining to black families and culture, as well as the broken criminal justice system.
