Big Moochie Grape Gets a Gigantic Bag in “East Haiti Baby” Video

Published

on

With a charismatic personality as “gigantic” as the pockets he pads with racks, Big Moochie Grape has been serving up raw, uncut bars rooted in Memphis tradition, but irreplicable in execution. Today, the Paper Route Empire artist returns to share the video for his laid-back banger, “East Haiti Baby.” The intro and title track from his recent East Haiti Baby project, anchored by the same Bill Withers sample that powered Blackstreet’s “No Diggity,” finds Moochie delivering soulful flows over a softened beat that lets his Southern drawl glide over every bar with ease, nodding to his mentor Young Dolph with lines like, “Know that I’m wet cause I’m signed to a dolphin.”

The video is a reflection of the ups-and-downs from Moochie’s life on the streets to the stage, as the larger-than-life stepper stands on his own through it all. Rocking layers of icy chains, including one of the “East Haiti Baby” pieces featured on the project’s cover, which sits right below his PRE pendant, Moochie walks himself from the director’s chair to center stage of the shoot. It’s Moochie’s show, it’s Moochie’s world, and it’s a blessing just to live in it.

Aided by signature Tennessee-style production from BandplaySosa 808Ayoza, and more, the tape chronicles Moochie’s rise from the trap to the top, showcasing the street acumen and sly grin that has him rising in his city and beyond. East Haiti Baby is home to Moochie’s ice-cold singles “I’m The One” and “Never Had Sh*t,” each of which earned well over 1 million views on Youtube in recent weeks. Continuing a dominant year for Paper Route Empire as they honor Young Dolph‘s legacy, Moochie enlists Key Glock and Kenny Muney for features, and shares a new verse from Dolph himself on mixtape highlight “Fun.” Whether he’s bouncing over a Bill Withers’ sample on “East Haiti Baby,” belting out cash-crazed melodies on “Money Money Money,” or swapping spitfire flows with Dolph, the Memphis native’s colorful charisma is felt throughout the 15-track tape.

Big Moochie Grape burst onto the scene in 2020 with Eat Or Get Atean hard-hitting EP that earned coverage in XXLUPROXX2DopeBoyzHotNewHipHop, and more. Home to singles like Big Juice” and Uh Huh Uh Huh Uh Huh” (4.5 million views), Eat Or Get Ate established Moochie as one of PRE’s most valuable players. The rapper returned with a vengeance on Paper Route Empire’s PAPER ROUTE iLLUMINATi mixtape, turning in highlight tracks like Illuminati Business” and Non Stop” (1.3 million views), and made his mark on Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolphdelivering the powerful and defiant In Dolph We Trust (1.4 million YouTube views).

With East Haiti Baby, Big Moochie Grape is determined to hit it big and keep Paper Route Empire’s winning streak going. Stay tuned for more in the coming weeks.

“BUSINESS,” by the multitalented, Italian/Canadian, brother duo, 80 Empire, is more than a music video; it’s a short film set in the iconic neighborhoods of Brooklyn, New York. Jennifer Esposito, actress and director, echoed this sentiment after watching the piece of cinematic cool: 

” It’s so authentic NY!!!!! Love it. Really great!!! ” 

“Dope flow .. East Coast vibes with the Timbs on the beach. Made men shit! “

said Eminem’s Shady Records alum, Kxng Crooked of the visuals and song.
One of the things that makes this music video incredibly honest and authentic is 80 Empire’s relationship with Robert Funaro whom the boys affectionately call ” Bobby 300. “You will often see the 3 gentlemen holding up 3 fingers throughout the music video, ” 300 is something Bobby came up with and it just stuck. Its like a code amongst brothers and an understanding of mutual respect within that brotherhood, Adrian proudly declares.  “Business” features actor Robert Funaro and actress Cristina Donadio of Napoli Italy. Both stars played major roles on arguably the most quintessential Mafia tv series in the history of television, The Sopranos and Gomorrah.
“It’s pretty historical for us to have both of these insanely, talented actors from two of the Biggest mob shows in our production, here at Gladiator Records, actually surreal!” acknowledges brother Lucas. Lucas and Adrian, aka 80 Empire, came down to New York from their headquarters in Niagara on the lake, also known as Nappa Valley of the North. It is surrounded by vineyards and historic Fort George, nestled on the Niagara river just minutes away from Niagara Falls. The brothers really wanted to go back to New York, the city they love, and specifically Brooklyn to fully capture the entire messaging behind the latest single. 80 Empire was on a mission just like Jake and Elwood Blues.
The Brothers couldn’t fulfill their destiny without the assistance of influencer and PR friend, Monica German-Prestia known on line as Stefani Style and long time friend and collaborator, director and screenwriter Fatty Soprano.
Monica, a native of Bensonhurst Brooklyn, understood the assignment, and along with the talented eye of Director, Fatty Soprano, connecting the dots bringing in other Brooklynites. Together, they created a truly exceptional piece of visual art, to accompany an already Cool song. The single was featured on Apple Music’s curated playlist: Bars,alongside the likes of J Cole, Pusha T, and Kendrick Lamar. The song was released on the duo’s indie label Gladiator Records and distributed by SoulSpazm earlier in May of 2022.
80 Empire display their vast musical abilities by starting the video with their version of Gaetano Donizetti’s Furtiva Lagrima. Adrian sang the operatic piece, while brother Lucas played his arrangement on piano. The Empire proud of their Italian heritage, and lovers of Opera, thanks to their parents, wanted to share their love of their culture by setting the atmosphere in the first scene of the video. Be sure to check out the visual for “Business” and feel free to share and repost!
