20-year-old rapper-singer Rod Wave has unveiled the music video for his latest single, “Thug Motivation.” The Floridian artist has been steadily rising on the charts since he dropped his debut EP, Ghetto Gospel back in November, executive produced by Kevin Gates.

The visuals showcase a compilation of footage from life on the tour bus and performing on stage as Rod reflects on the struggles he’s endured to get where he is today. “Took so many losses, can’t believe I finally get to win,” he soulfully recites. Directed by Dre Beas, watch the video above and stream the album now on Spotify.


Rod is also set to embark on a 22-city U.S. tour which kicks off in Augusta, GA on March 3.
