Japanese fashion designer NIGO linked up with some of his A-list Hip Hop friends for a special compilation album titled I Know NIGO! that dropped on Friday (March 25). To keep the fun going, NIGO dropped the official video for the Lil Uzi Vert-assisted “Heavy” on Monday (March 28) in all its iced-out glory.
The visual finds NIGO hanging out with Lil Uzi, A$AP Rocky and music executive Steven Victor as they hit up a Jacob & Co. jewelry store and play around with all the expensive pieces on display. Some of the items include several diamond-encrusted watches and a trio of Roc-A-Fella chains.

The video comes days after Lil Uzi Vert showed off his new look ahead of the release of his eagerly anticipated The Pink Tape. The pint-sized Philly rapper is now sporting a punk-inspired spiky hairstyle.
Uzi’s relationship with NIGO goes deeper than just music, as he told HipHopDX back in August the HUMAN MADE collaboration he worked on meant the world to him. The collection included a hooded sweatshirt, t-shirt, cups, a pillow and more stamped with Baby Pluto’s bat logo.
“Back in like 2010, 2011, 2012, that was prime for me,” he said of NIGO’s work. “That was stuff that we was like to die for, and I would just go around to different places like Abacus and stuff just trying to find stuff. It’s just amazing that they actually acknowledged me because I’ve been acknowledging them before they even knew who I was.”
