Watch Ralo shut down clubs, hang with Young Scooter, deal with police, and spread the "Famgoon" gospel across the South in the "OCKTOBER" episode of his documentary series.
After last week’s “I Ain’t Done Yet” video, Ralo is back with the second installment of “Famerican Tuesdays.” This week, the Atlanta upstart brings us the “OCKTOBER” episode of his documentary series, which chronicles his experiences as a street sensation with a newly lawful means of earning his income.
Shot by DP, the 15-minute video follows Ralo through tour ventures in Florida and North Carolina, before heading back to his hometown of Atlanta, where he performs at the city’s biggest clubs and also visits his old stomping grounds in the notorious neighborhood known as “Tha Bluff.” Throughout his travels, he shows love to fans and locals, counts up plenty of money, and partakes in friendly conversations with familiar faces, such as Young Scooter, with whom he dropped the Dream Team mixtape earlier this year.
Another fascinating but disturbing moment comes when Ralo gets pulled up on by a whole legion of police officers for a simple traffic violation, or in his words, “being too rich.”
A pensive film score plays throughout “OCKTOBER.” The video ends with Ralo reflecting on his new life: “I still can’t believe I’m in the position I’m in today.” He plays the part well, though he hasn’t forgotten about the struggle that got him here.
Next up for the Famerica President is another video of his August mixtape, Diary of the Streets 2, which features Future, Young Thug, YFN Lucci, Birdman, and more. Download it here, and learn more about Ralo’s background in the below episode of our On The Come Up series.
