"Tell me, how much would you spend if you had drug money?"
This is the question San Jose rapper City Shawn poses to listeners on "Drug Money," an infectious anthem for any aspiring "Freeway" Ricky Ross understudies — or hip hop heads who need suitable background music for a late-night toke sesh. Shawn just dropped the visuals for "Drug Money" and, of course, we have first dibs. Here is the EARMILK premiere of Shawn's new flick:
The "Drug Money" video definitely has a vintage Scorcese feel, as Shawn posts up in a mission-style mansion, preparing to handle some business with an associate in California's remote wine country. Draped in an all-white ensemble, Shawn effortlessly rattles off some wavy bars and a resounding chorus that will live inside your head all week. Throw in some trapalicious production from Cisco, and this joint is pure, unadulterated Grade-A DOPE.
