Video: Roach Gigz – “Crack A 40” Ft. Kool John (HBK Gang)

Roach Gigz Releases Video For Fun Party Track, New Mixtape Out Now For Free Download


Critical Praise for Roach Gigz:

“The funniest rapper working.” – The New York Times

“There’s a…clever mania to his style.” – Complex

“Here’s to the new age of rap. And Roach Gigz. Who is awesome.” – The FADER

The Video:

Last week, Roach Gigz released his new mixtape Roachy Balboa III. The tape, premiered by The Fader, has earned strong early feedback,  and with momentum growing, Roach is back today with the latest in what will be a string of new videos from RBIII, this one for a party track dedicated to the rapper’s beverage of choice: beer.  “Crack A 40” features a verse from Kool John, a member of the HBK Gang that includes rapper Iamsu! and producer P-Lo, both of whom are also featured on Roach’s mixtape.

The track, which is produced by Trev Case, also serves as a strong entry point for those that haven’t yet heard the tape — like the best of what Roachy Balboa III has to offer, “Crack A 40” shows off Roach’s enrapturing personality and penchant for witty, occasionally-raunchy punchlines. The video, directed by Robert Mojica, picks up right where the song left off: “The vibe was just fun,” says Roach. “The song is about a night of fun so we just brought that to life at the video shoot. Pretty girls and 40’s flowing like Cristal.”

Roachy Balboa III, which features Iamsu!Kreayshawn, and Clyde Carson, along with production from DJ Two Stacks, P-Lo, and Nick Catchdubs, is out now.

Roach Gigz Background:

Hailed by The New York Times as “the funniest rapper working” and selected by 106 KMEL as part of the radio station’s inaugural Freshman 10 class, 24-year-old San Francisco native Roach Gigz has become of the Bay Area’s brightest young stars, covered by outlets like Pitchfork, FADER, XXL, MTV2 Sucker Free, mtvU, and many more. Heavily influenced by Mac Dre and the homegrown hip-hop scene that permeated the Bay Area during the 2000s, Roach has taken a similar approach to his music, telling everyday tales, comical but always true-to-life. Roach Gigz first gained local fame with close friend Lil 4Tay, as one half of the group Bitch I Go (B.I.G.), and since has released two successful Roachy Balboa mixtapes and a debut EP, Bitch, I’m A Player. To date, Roach Gigz has garnered well over five million YouTube views, amassed over 70,000 fans on Facebook, and has over 18,000 followers on Twitter. Now, following the release of Roach’s 2012 album, Bugged Out, and a national tour in 2013 opening for Andre Nickatina, Roach will release Roachy Balboa III, the latest installment in his acclaimed Roachy Balboa mixtape series. Roachy Balboa III was premiered by The FADER and is available now for free download.
