Young Thug collaborator and protégé Lil Silk is two for two on ridiculously charming videos this year (see September's "I'm Geeked"). His latest, "Know Money," featuring Yakki Divioshi (who you may recognize from a couple Young Thug tracks), opens with Silk swimming in a pile of bills on his studio floor and delightedly drumming money-covered drums. His flow is super animated, and Thug's influence is certainly present but not overpowering—Silk's got a youthful earnestness that is wholly his own. He thrives on camera, but that doesn't distract from the fact that he's rapping his ass off.
