Catch the Adam Rodness and Popp Rok-produced video for 21's "Ball w/o You"—which brings the lyrics' central narrative to life—up top via YouTube.
Last week, 21 joined Offset, Gucci Mane, and Sheck Wes on DJ Snake's highly anticipated "Enzo" collab. As Snake told Zane Lowe when premiering the collab, "Enzo" actually first kicked off its path to existence back in 2017. Snake also credited his approach of trying "different things [and] different vibes" on his last project as integral to the 21-assisted song's creative successes.
21, whose excellent i am > i was album was followed by a widely publicized arrest at the hands of the should-be-abolished ICE, revealed in an interview to Billboard earlier this month that he's currently sitting on approximately two albums' worth of unreleased material. Before 21 truly dives into a new era, however, he and his team have designs on releasing more singles from i am > i was.
Back in February, 21 expanded his Bank Account Campaign to help boost financial literacy nationwide with partners JUMA and Get Schooled. The following month, 21 pledged $100 to each child who attended his workshop at Camp Jewel House Academy in Georgia and started bank accounts.
"For most kids, the focus is on earning money," 21 said of his initiative. "And while that is important, to really get ahead you need to know how to manage your money, not just make it."
