Polo G faced backlash after a video surfaced of him boasting about being the sole rapper who travels without security. Strutting around with a massive chain, the Chicago artist claimed he would never be caught off guard, despite not having any protection. However, critics were quick to highlight the alarming number of violent incidents that have shaken the rap community in recent years.
Fans didn’t hold back, pointing out the risks Polo G seemed oblivious to. One Instagram comment read, “It’s not impressive to be foolish. Just ask JayDaYoungan, Young Dolph, PNB Rock, Pop Smoke, XXXTentacion, Lil Tjay, FBG Duck, TakeOff, and the list goes on.” Observers also noted Polo’s anxious demeanor in the video, as he constantly glanced over his shoulder.
While the rapper may have filmed the video in the seemingly safe neighborhood of Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, critics highlighted the omnipresent security guards in the area. A commenter sarcastically wrote, “Beverly Hills security guards on every corner. There are old Chinese ladies on that same street with million-dollar watches and necklaces.”
In other news, Polo G recently released his latest single “No Time Wasted” featuring Future. Fans have been eagerly awaiting new music since his last album, Hall of Fame 2.0, dropped in 2021. Despite previously apologizing for the delay and promising a productive year, Polo G’s followers were left disappointed. However, the artist is currently collaborating with renowned producer Southside from 808 Mafia on an upcoming project, which he described as his most captivating work in a while.
