Rod Wave Revels in His Riches in ‘Freestyle’ Video

Rod Wave’s pockets can’t handle his stacks of cash, so the 20-year-old rapper boastfully carries his load with his hands in his latest “Freestyle” music video from last Thursday (July 30).

The bonus song joins “Through The Wire,” which details his near-fatal car accident from earlier this year, and more tracks boasting features from Lil Baby and Yo Gotti that will appear on the deluxe edition of Wave’s Pray 4 Love album. He originally released his sophomore LP on April 3, which later debuted at No. 2 on the Billboard 200, but the beefier version is set to drop Friday, Aug. 7 via Alamo/Geffen/Interscope Records.

The accompanying visual for “Freestyle,” which was directed by TRUFilms, gives fans an exclusive peek of the millions of ways the bright rap rookie stacks his six million in cash, from on the bed of his tour bus to in the bathtub of his hotel room. And according to his recent interview with Billboard, Wave does his best work, including one of his most notable Billboard Hot 100 hits “Rags2Riches,” in those settings where he’s always on the go.

“I definitely like being in the hotel way better because it’s just me and the engineer,” Wave said in comparison to recording at the studio. “I’ve never really been able to open up and record around people. I remember my first time in the studio, I wasted like six hours. There were too many people in there. I was kind of shy…. Some of the adjustments I had to do for me to get personal in my music, I had to be by myself so I won’t feel like I’m getting judged and I can really be creative and be myself.”
