Yakki & 21 Savage "Pockets" Video

HNHH PREMIERE: Yakki and 21 Savage walk around with blue hunnids in the new "Pockets" video.


21 Savage is one of the hottest young rappers in Atlanta, and Yakki (aka Yakki Divioshi), hot off the success of his recent Gangsta Grillz mixtape, Yakkstick, isn't too far behind him. The two street-focused artists have now joined forces for the video to "Pockets," their March collab that surprisingly didn't appear on Yakkstick, which contained hits such as "Trill Luv" and the Lil Uzi Vert-featuring "Xans."

Though most of the "Pockets" video is shot in crystal clear 4K, it's stylized to look like it comes from a camcorder, thus making it seem like the viewer is following Yakki and 21 through an ordinary day in their hood. Yakki injects plenty of charisma into his music, and the highlight of "Pockets" is how he's able to express the pain of his come-up and then suddenly fast-forward to his current state of leisure -- "Now I walk around with blue hunnids in my pocket." As for 21, his swag is on another level with the skeleton gloves. The "Pockets" video is directed by iNightLyfe.
