Today, Polo dropped his lead-up single “DraftKing,” off his album I.C.F.M. 3. The song opens up with an analog-sounding arpeggio synth. Polo then comes in, rapping behind the beat with his demanding flow. The melody and Polo’s delivery is accompanied by a bouncing 808 pattern. As expected, Polo drops some clever lyrics in the song as well.

Yeah I put money on that boy like I’m the mob but I’m the draft king.
I just made some breesh that’s off a play, I swear I love the back ends.
Rock expensive fabrics haters say I’m bragin.
All this guap on me that’s why my denim saggin.

- Lil Polo Tee, "DraftKing"

In the song’s music video, directed by Reel Goats, there are a lot of fantastic video elements that Polo and the team incorporated into the track. The video opens with Polo walking in New York City, as he then stumbles across a bouncing basketball, glowing in green, which grabs his attention. He then follows it and finds himself in the middle of a pickup basketball game. As time runs out in the middle of the game, Polo starts draining crazy three-pointers, helping his team come back in the game. 

Then, in the final seconds of the game, you see the opposing team swarming Polo to get the ball with time running out. Polo then goes super saiyan and finds himself in the stratosphere before coming down with no time on the clock to slam-dunk the game-winning point. Suddenly, Polo feels his pockets, only to find thousands of dollars with the pickup game disappearing. This video is an enjoyable and entertaining watch, especially if you’re into Lil Polo Tee. Tune in below! 

The video is directed by Reel Goats, one of the largest up-and-coming group of filmmakers based out of Los Angeles, California. The crew has directed videos for DaBaby, Roddy Ricch, Lil Tjay, Polo G, and is now adding Lil Polo Tee to the ranks. Additionally, they worked with TiaCorine for her Bojangles anthem “BoTime,” last month.

Reel Goats boasts an impressive 149,000 followers on Instagram and over 25,000 on YouTube, but has extended their reach upwards of a billion viewers. Be sure to check them out on Instagram and give them a follow if you like their content!
