Lil Uzi Vert & Steve Aoki's "Been Ballin" video is appropriately lavish.
Back in July, Steve Aoki and Lil Uzi Vert teamed up for "Been Ballin," a highlight off Aoki's Kolony album. Today, the duo have come through with a new visual for the banger. As they say, better late than never. The Ours&Yours directed clip employs a variety of visual effects, imbuing the clip with with a lavish, surreal quality. Gold flows in abundance; Lil Uzi has never been one for modesty. The young rapper continues to shoulder shrug his way into piles of money, while Aoki sails through a golden, El-Dorado esque city. Did you really expect anything less from this unexpected duo?
For the most part, we're not exactly reinventing the wheel on this one. It largely relies on live performance footage of Uzi, which gives the clip a bit of a disconnected feel. Still, it's an entertaining visual component to a mindless banger, despite it skewing closer to style than substance.
