unnamed-6 REASON shares video for "Favorite" the latest from his TDE debut album, 'New Beginnings'

Fresh off the release of his debut project, New Beginnings, with Top Dawg EntertainmentREASON is back today with a new video for a standout from the tracklisting, “Favorite Ni**a.” Produced by Kal Banx, “Favorite Ni**a” is elevated by thumping bass drums and a chiming sound effect that recalls 90’s video games, leaving plenty of space for REASON to stake his claim: “Ni**as wanna be REAS, tell the truth, I can’t blame a ni**a/Yeah, I’m my favorite ni**a, yeah/And money ain’t change a ni**a.” Shot from REASON’s point-of-view, the new visual finds the rapper taking a midnight trip around L.A. in his box frame, intensely focused on a mysterious task. The video concludes as the sun rises, and REASON goes about his day unfazed by the previous night’s events.
