Polo G is showing love to the cast of his “Barely Holdin’ On” music video. A source caught up to TMZ Hip-Hop and revealed the Chicago legend dropped off $10,000 to everyone who helped create the video.
Involved in the video are Diana, an organ transplant survivor; a single mother named Bobbi, Deon, a substance abuse survivor; and Willie, a 12-year-old gunshot victim-turned-paraplegic basketball player.
“It was an emotional roller coaster for many,” said the video’s director SixTwentySix’s Arrad. “Nobody was expecting to get the cash at the end. It was a huge surprise and everyone was in complete denial! Polo was very generous and wanted to make sure he could thank each and every person – he expressed his gratitude multiple times and gave them all the cash at the end. It was extremely nice and heartwarming of him.”
Last month, Polo G unveiled the captivating music video for his latest single, “Barely Holdin’ On.” The poignant video delivered an emotionally charged visual experience.
The video’s narratives were thoughtfully chosen by Polo himself, featuring real individuals grappling with genuine struggles. This deliberate decision reflects Polo’s commitment to authenticity, highlighting their everyday challenges and triumphs.
“Barely Holdin’ On” is the lead single from Polo G’s highly anticipated forthcoming album, HOOD POET, which will arrive via Columbia Records.
