After releasing last year’s buzzworthy EP, QuickTape, which spawned big songs “Bag Talk,” “Solid Bitch” and “Bitch Do It,” famous South Carolina rapper pops out early in 2021 with the release of her new visual for the latest single “Hands On Ya Knees” featuring Kevin Gates. The Des Grey-directed visual stars Renni Rucci is a Dominatrix who controls a prominent sex dungeon filled with clients and dominatrixes-turned-dancers, fulfilling every desire over the DJ Chose production. Unlike the usual Rucci presentation, “Hands On Ya Knees,” with its multiple dance sequences and hypnotizing looks, is a must-see.
While Gates doesn’t appear in the video physically, Rucci credits the I’m Him creator for the song’s originality. “Kevin actually presented the opportunity to me,” she says. “He had the song, and he wanted a female on, and he let me have my shot with it. He really was all for helping me excel in my career and has shown a lot of support to me, which I’m very grateful for. I laid my verses, and it was all she wrote after that. “
When speaking to Renni about the record, she says:
“I wanted the video to be very different from what we see right now. A visual that when you turn it on you watch it from beginning to end like we used to and not just play it because you like the song. Everyone worked very hard on this from the dancers, the glam crew, the directors to the set crew. Ultimately, I believe that’s really what made it as great as it is, the dedication everyone had to really execute and bring my vision to life.”
Renni Rucci, born Courtney Rene in Columbia, South Carolina, made her Lyrical Lemonade debut last June as a guest feature on Ken Jones’s track “I Wanna.” The 29-year-old initially established her popularity as an Instagram model. It evolved into a hip hop artist in 2017 with a series of freestyles going viral over hit songs by Lil Baby, Cardi B and Moneybagg Yo. Before QuickTape, Rucci was best known for her sexy wordplay on collaborations with Cuban Doll, DJ Luke Nasty and Quality Control who she signed to for a brief period.
