A-Reece Drops Visuals For ‘THE 5 YEAR PLAN’ Featuring Wordz

A-Reece and Wordz rob a bank in new visuals for 'THE 5 YEAR PLAN'.

When A-Reece and Wordz said they were about to rob a bank in the refrain for their collaboration, they meant it. In the visuals for the collaborative single "THE 5 YEAR PLAN", the two emcees, armed in rifles and wearing bulletproof vests, make their way into the vault of the National Bank Building.

The visuals are specifically referred to as a "music film" instead of a music video owing to their heist movie nature—A-Reece and Wordz, accompanied by PJay from B3nchMarQ, can be seen commanding customers to get down on the floor as they go about their mission.


"THE 5 YEAR PLAN" was the first single A-Reece shared from his latest mixtape, Today's Tragedy, Tomorrow's Memory, released in March.
