PaperRouteWoo and Young Dolph join forces for ‘Ricky’: Watch the visual

Not a very exciting video, but the song makes up for it.

Rising star PaperRouteWoo drops a jeep-banger with a fire feature from Young Dolph. This song definitely has some weight to it. While the subject matter is the usual gun and drug talk, the beat and flow makes it something spectacular. Both artists do their thing, going bar for bar without much need for a hook. At first, I thought the visual would be the typical rapping-in-front-of-the-trap with weapons and vehicles, but I was pleasantly surprised by the mini recreation of the infamous ‘Boyz N the Hood’ scene, where Ricky was shot in the back. While that caught my eye, the video does nothing else to really pay homage to the movie, or show relevancy, to the song title. It reverts back to rapping in front of cars and houses. Not a very exciting video, but the song makes up for it.
