Gunna Nods to O.J. Simpson’s White Bronco Chase in “Rodeo Dr” Video
Gunna‘s A Gift & a Curse beat the odds, including when “Fukumean” earned him his first Billboard No. 1 on the R&B/Hip Hop charts. Riding that success, the rapper has released a nostalgic music video for “Rodeo Dr,” another cut from his fourth studio album. The track peaked at No. 42 on the Hot 100 last month.
In the Spike Jordan-directed visual, Gunna rides around L.A. in a white Ford Bronco, referencing O.J. Simpson’s infamous 1994 police chase, although in this case Gunna is being trailed by fans.
“Helpin’ the P out, so bring me them narcos, thinkin’ I should take the Bronco/OJ, gotta go get it tomorrow,” Gunna raps on the chorus.
The video ends with two inmates watching the chase on a phone behind bars. “This my city! That man done gone crazy. But I feel him though,” one man says.
The “Rodeo Dr” visual comes after Gunna announced he will be headlining two shows. One date is set for Sept. 9 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, titled The Gift, with a sold-out concert called The Curse is scheduled for Sept. 28 at the YouTube Theater in L.A.
