Syra­cuse-born, North Car­o­lina-raised rap­per Toosii returns today with a nos­tal­gic video for his hit single, “5’5” fea­tur­ing Latto. The track is a standout from Toosii’s new mix­tape, Thank You For Believ­ing (The Mani­fest­a­tion), out now via South Coast Music Group / Cap­it­ol Records. The visu­al finds Toosii get­ting romantic and dan­cing at a throw­back house party—all baggy pants, buck­et hats, and hoop ear­rings. It’s a cheer­ful clip for the feel-good rap track.

Toosii’s latest ode to love finds the rap­per mov­ing from a quick flow to melod­ic bars. The video for “5’5”—directed by Joan Pabon, pro­duced by Andreas Gar­cia and shot in Atlanta— stars Toosii at a bump­ing house party when his “angel” makes her way in. The two shoot pool, take turns at the keg, and find some chem­istry on the dance­floor. Latto makes an appear­ance for her stel­lar verse, and togeth­er, the two take the party out­side where they can more freely show off their moves.

“5’5” fol­lows the video for “spin music” with Fivio For­eign, the first single from Thank You For Believ­ing (The Mani­fest­a­tion), the deluxe ver­sion of Toosii’s acclaimed 2021 mix­tape. The “spin music” visu­al mir­rors the song’s kin­et­ic energy, jump­ing between scenes of ATVs, parties, and bed­rooms in a dizzy­ing array of lenses, cam­era angles, and spe­cial effects. VIBE wrote that the track “finds the two New York­ers deliv­er­ing what could be the city’s latest drill anthem.”

The “5’5” video con­tin­ues Toosii’s unbe­liev­able run from a grind­ing upstart to becom­ing a glob­ally cel­eb­rated rap­per. Earli­er this year, he sur­passed one bil­lion streams, proof his music is res­on­at­ing. And now, with a proven abil­ity to con­sist­ently churn out diverse, vivid, and affect­ing music, Toosii shows no signs of slow­ing down. His cha­risma and screen pres­ence are obvi­ous in the video for “5’5,” mark­ing anoth­er stun­ning per­form­ance from one of rap’s most excit­ing young artists.
