unnamed-1-2 $NOT & Lil Skies Connect for the Cole Bennett-Directed "Whipski" Video

Directed by Cole Bennett, the video for “Whipski” features the Lyrical Lemonade auteur’s signature dynamic storyline and kinetic visual effects. The video kicks off with $NOT and Skies working for an abusive boss (who you might recognize from $NOT’s Bennett-directed Revenge” video) in an auto repair shop, before they decide to take their job and shove it. The rest of the video follows Skies and $NOT on a high-speed trip, as they transform their run-down van into a BMW. On their joyride, $NOT and Skies encounter beautiful women in green wigs, aliens in a UFO, and catch a brief glimpse of Landon Cube, who waves at them when they drive by. “Whipski” is the third collaboration between $NOT and Cole Bennett, and it loosely follows a storyline established in “Revenge” (9.5 million views) and “Mean” ft. Flo Milli (7.7 million views). Last night, $NOT and Cole Bennett discussed the video in a Twitter Spaces conversation, hosted by Complex.

“Whipski” is $NOT’s first new song since the October 2020 release of Beautiful Havoc, his latest project. Taking his songwriting to a new level, Beautiful Havoc interrogates the 22-year-old rapper’s pain, digging into the betrayal and hardships that shape his prickly and misanthropic persona. With production from the likes of Powers PleasantEem TriplinWoodpecker, and more, Beautiful Havoc offers a bright and diverse sonic palette, allowing $NOT to showcase his elite melodic instincts and provide a contrast to his dark, self-hating lyrics. Beautiful Havoc hosts several well-received singles, including collabs with iann dior and Denzel Curry, and is home to “Mean” (35 million Spotify streams), the Flo Milli-featuring slapper that inspired a viral trend on TikTok (over 700k combined video creations). Beautiful Havoc is available everywhere via 300 Ent.

“Whipski” arrives as $NOT prepares to return to the stage for the first time since February 2020 for a short-run tour in his home state of Florida. Though he performed songs from Beautiful Havoc during a Rolling Loud Loud Stream, the upcoming dates mark the first time any songs from the album will be performed in a truly live setting. The upcoming 4-date tour makes stops in Tampa, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Lake Park. 

Always ahead of the curve, $NOT will be dropping an NFT on Friday, April 9th, exclusively on Zora, to coincide with the release of “Whipski.” Stay tuned for more music from the 23-year-old rapper very soon, as he continues his superstar trajectory.
