Polo G has been branded “stupid” after he bragged in a recent video about being the only rapper who travels without security.
The clip finds the Chicago rapper wandering around outside with a massive chain around his neck and claiming that while he doesn’t move with security, he’ll never get caught “lacking.”
“All on the strip by my lonesome today,” Polo said. “I ain’t lacking, though. The [pistol] on my hip, I ain’t lacking, though. On my kids, n-ggas know just how I’m coming. I’m the only rapper you know who pop out dolo with no security.”

Fans were quick to criticize Polo G’s flex, with a few noting the slew of high-profile murders and shootings that have plagued the rap community in recent years.
“It ain’t a flex to be stupid,” wrote one critic in an Instagram comment. “Just ask JayDaYoungan, Young Dolph, PNB Rock,Pop Smoke, XXXTentacion,Lil Tjay, FBG Duck, TakeOff and the list goes on.”
Another critic pointed out that despite his self-assured words, Polo appeared jumpy in the video and was constantly looking over his shoulder.
“He keep looking back lmao just get security man it’s always n-ggas tryna prove a point,” they wrote, while another noted that the Hall of Fame hitmaker appeared to have filmed the video on Rodeo Drive in Beverly Hills, which isn’t exactly known as a dangerous neighborhood.
“Beverly hills security guards on every corner,” someone wrote. “Theres a old chinese ladies on that same street wit a million dollar watches and necklaces on.”

Its predecessor, Hall of Fame, dropped in 2019 and peaked at No. 1 on the Billboard 200, securing him his first chart-topping album.
