It makes sense that Rae Sremmurd would drop their video for "Black Beatles" next since the track is one of the most hyped on their album, SremmLife 2. Produced by Mike WiLL Made-It, Gucci Mane, Swae Lee, and Slim Jxmmi turn up to compare themselves to the Beatles, likening their their fame and money to the iconic English band's success.
The Motion Family-directed visual opens up on Swae and Slim kicking it in a basement before taking their show to a stage surrounded by a very turned up crowd. Taking a direct cue from the Beatles' iconic Abbey Road album cover, the video cuts to several shots of the brothers crossing their own, white painted crosswalk while sporting some very dope suits. Gucci Mane shows up halfway through to rap his own verse using real life cuts from the trio performing the track on stage as well as kicking it backstage together. The whole thing caps off with one last nod to legendary Brits by performing the end of the song on top of a building, similarly to the Beatles' famous impromptu rooftop concert in 1969.
The rappers are set to head out on the road on the Sremmlife 2 Tour, which kicks off October 1 in New Orleans and sees them crossign the country through the end of November with special guest, Lil Yachty. From there, they will head out on their just announced European leg of tour beginning in January in London.
Watch the brothers' new video for "Black Beatles" above and keep your eyes out for something special going down on Jimmy Kimmel Live tonight.
