Chicago rapper PGF Nuk has just shared a new video for his ferocious single “The Next”. Nuk has solidified himself as the face of the new era of Chicago drill ever since arriving on the scene in 2021 with his now RIAA Platinum-certified breakout single “Waddup” (70M Global Streams). Its subsequent remix featuring Polo G brings a fresh, revitalized sound and energy to the longtime Hip-Hop capital. In order to capitalize on this momentum, Nuk released his debut project Switch Music in July, reaching #2 on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart while boasting features from the likes of G Herbo, EST Gee, BIG30, and more. Following up the intensity of “Blast Off”, “The Next” serves as Nuk’s second release of 2023 and continues his momentous year in 2022, as PGF Nuk gears up to take his high-energy raps and delivery to a new level.
“The Next” is a short yet commanding offering from PGF Nuk, as he continues to bring his signature intensity, incessant flows and aggressive lyricism to the forefront of his sound. Over the track’s hard-hitting beat which features a booming bassline and an ominous piano loop, Nuk elevates his straightforward, no-nonsense bars to new levels – “I’ma go this way, you go that way and come from there / Don’t shoot no innocence, clap the one that got the hair”, he raps as the drums are removed from the soundscape behind him. With the releases of “Blast Off” and now “The Next”, PGF Nuk is continuing to further set himself apart as the undeniable frontrunner in Chicago’s newest generation of spitters.
