While it’s no secret that Travis Scott has a knack for making bangers, in 2016 the man featured on A LOT of bangers. “Pick Up The Phone,” “Goosebumps,” “Uber Everywhere,” and “Last Time” are among just the few he was a part of, along with much of his 2016 album Birds in the Trap Sing Brian McKnight. One of those tracks,”beibs in the trap,” was no exception, as it featured NAV, another artist who is no stranger to bangers. The slap was just given the music video treatment.
I’m going to be honest and say while I’m familiar with NAV’s production and tracks, I hadn’t really ever seen him before. Only from the side. So even while we were given a visual for “beibs in the trap,” I wasn’t able to fully realize what NAV looked like until over halfway through. So he is no longer a mystery man. But he sure put up a good effort.

Directed by RJ Sanchez, the “beibs” video isn’t nearly as exotic as many of Travis’ other videos but it still had its moments. The women in the video are featured in white, representing “that COCAAA”(NAV voice) and they are working with some sort of higher fashion elements not quite on my radar, as it is no secret that Travis Scott is into fashion similar to his mentor Kanye West. While it may not be the most creative video, some of the shots are still extremely enjoyable, especially those from the floor. The other highlight is watching that lambo drift around on an absolute dime. The video then takes a darker turn toward the end with blood clearly dripping from one of the girls’ noses, as the camera zooms in and cuts to black.
