Today, PG County rap auteur IDK teams up with Migos superstar Offset for a stylish new single “Shoot My Shot” on Clue/Warner Records. The duo rap about the struggles of modern love over siren-like synths and guitar, bearing their hearts while reminding the world that they’re two of the best rappers working. The cut also arrives alongside a striking, cinematic video featuring both stars at their most charismatic.
“Shoot My Shot” finds IDK at his most colorful and comedic, using his verse to paint a picture of his ideal mate. She shops Whole Foods—”stomach on apple cider vinegar”—just graduated, and works out daily.
In the video, which has the bright, synthetic feel of an early 2000s Hype Williams creation, he dons Kanye’s Yeezus mask for a shot and Biggie’s Coogi sweater for another, echoing the track’s sly rap references. Afterward, Offset storms in with some lovelorn and luxurious bars of his own. The track is a showcase of dizzying rap technicality, but it’s also a moving glimpse into two rap icons’ minds. Watch “Shoot My Shot” below.
