Watch the official music video for Lil Bibby's "Water."
Lil Bibby's soulful "Water" turned out to be one of the fan favorite cuts off his debut mixtape Free Crack. Four months after the mixtape's release, Bibby returns today with the official music video for "Water" via Complex.
Bibby takes to the cold streets of the Chi to shoot the visual and takes us around the hoods of Chicago, as he spits about his struggles and keeping his head above water. He admits in the Black Metaphor-produced record, "sometimes I need a hug."
Bibby spoke to Complex about what the records means to him, saying,
"I was just expressing a couple feelings, man. I really liked the beat from Black Metaphor. I think he's one of like the top 10 producers right now. One of my homies in Atlanta, he mess with Black Metaphor tough, so we was just in the studio and he was pulling up beats and then he just picked it. I freestyled the first half of the hook like, "I gotta keep my head above water," and then the second half I just put together. I just type the verses on my phone. Well, if I got the hook already done, the verse won't take me nothing but like 20 minutes. If that. In total the song probably took an hour. I think that same day I recorded "Water" and "Whole Crew" and "See Me Down" or something, off my mixtape."
