Gucci Mane has dropped a new video for his song “Letter to Takeoff.”

The track memorializes Takeoff, who passed away on Nov. 1 from a fatal shooting. The visual sees Gucci rapping at a cemetery. “Just left another funeral, I shed a tear / I’m still in disbelief, I can’t believe it’s real / I think about the memories, it give me chills / I’m wonderin’ why they left the fake and took the real / Like how the fuck we gon lose Takeoff / Damn, he didn’t deserve it,” he spits.

Elsewhere in the song, Gucci laments the passing of other rap figures, including Shawty Lo, PnB Rock, XXXTentacion, and Young Dolph, as well as Metro Boomin’s mother.
