Sheck Wes is back with an eccentric video for his new song "YKTS."
Directed by White Trash Tyler, who has previously worked with the likes of Travis Scott and Kanye West, the video features extensive use of night vision. The track, meanwhile, carries his distinctive whisper-like flow over a booming beat. The title of the track refers to "You Know the Scouts." It's unclear if the intense song is taken from his highly-anticipated second full-length project or not.
The 21-year-old rapper first broke out with his 2018 project Mudboy, which was released via Cactus Jack, G.O.O.D. Music, and Interscope. The success of the project was further helped by the viral single "Mo Bamba," which has been certified platinum three times. Since then he has collaborated with a number of other artists including DJ Snake and Murda Beatz. He also shared two non-album singles earlier this year with "Sadio Mane," and "Losing My Mind."
At the start of the year, he was marred in controversy after his ex-girlfriend Justine Skye alleged he physically abused her. She was reportedly granted a restraining order against him, but ultimately he didn't face charges for his alleged attack. When the claims first surfaced, Sheck denied the allegations. "I never hit or beat any women and I did not beat up or jump anybody," he said in a tweet.
