As 2021 draws to a close, Young Stoner Life Records artist Strick has uploaded a new video for the single “For Sale” featuring A $ AP Rocky. The track is from his latest album, “Strick Land,” which arrived on November 5 with features from YSL Records founder Young Thug, Kid Cudi, Ty Dolla $ ign, Gunna, NAV and Rae Sremmurd rapper Swae Lee. , among others.
Produced by Boims under the aegis of 300 Entertainment, the low-fi DIY visual finds Strick brave, spewing dynamic verses about his undeniable coming: “Rose gold on Bentley wheels (Skrrt) / Too many karats in both ears (Both have ears) / I can’t even hear if you don’t talk about dinner. “
Metro Boomin, Swae Lee, Southside, NAV, Kaash Paige, Lil Keed, Lil Gotit and T-Shyne also make notable appearances in the celebratory affair, effortlessly showing a family vibe, to hell with the coronavirus.
With influences ranging from 2Pac and Big L to Big Pun and Eminem, Strick has married his lyric-gifted predecessors since the start of his career. After landing his first official placement on Juicy J’s “Ballin ‘” with Kanye West in 2016, Strick worked tirelessly to position himself among the top echelons of rappers – and his commitment paid off. That same year, Strick received his first platinum record from the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) for the track “Coordinate” from Travis Scott’s “Birds In The Trap Sing McKnight” album.
Strick then joined the boss of his label on several tours, including the Hi-Tunes tour in 2016 and the Hi Horse’D tour in 2017. Soon, invitations to join Young Thug and J. Cole on the KOD Tour followed. , and he’s been riding that momentum ever since.
After eventually signing a deal in 2018 with Young Stoner Life Records and 300 Entertainment (which was just sold to Warner Music Group, as announced today), he appeared on Thugger’s 2018 Slime Language compilation. Their collaboration, “STS,” has amassed more than 12.5 million streams and nearly 10 million catalog streams to date, according to a press release from 300 Entertainment and YSL Records.
As the “For Sale” video easily illustrates, Strick is living his best life – and he’s just getting started. Check it out below.
