About six months after sharing his third album Hall Of Fame, Polo G returned with 14 new songs on the expanded edition Hall Of Fame 2.0. One of the highlights on 2.0 was "Heating Up," a street anthem co-starring YungLiV, the Philly rapper signed to Polo's Capalot Records. On Friday, we got a music video that matches the song's explosive, bloodthirsty energy.
The visuals from Counterpoint 2.0 call back to clips from Chicago drill's early days with a new polish and glimpses of the cut-and-paste aesthetic that's become popular in rap videos nowadays. Polo and YungLiv deliver their bars surrounded by their crew in the street, the barbershop, and in the snack aisle of a convenience store, looking untouchable everywhere they go. If the purpose of "Heating Up" is to put fear in the heart of the competition, the song and its video succeed on multiple levels. Watch above.
