Bay Area rapper Choose Up Cheese enlisted the talents of FMB DZ, Sada Baby, and Tooda Mane for a fiery new track called “Bag Drop.” It’s a magnetic listen, employing some classic Bay Area-bounce production to create a sure-fire party track for the upcoming summer. FMB DZ and company kill their respective parts, showcasing some serious Detroit presence in the Bay Area. With the song sounding as fire as it does, no wonder both areas continue to keep producing gems when the artists collide.
The visual itself is badass as well, employing a dark filter to cast the proceedings in a nefarious light. There are guns, lean, weed, and everything else you can imagine. But it all makes sense when taking the whole picture into account. This is one video that you’ll want to watch over and over again.
Be prepared to vibe to “Bag Drop” below.
