Video: GLC feat. Bun B & Sir Mix-A-Lot – Clockin’ Lotsa Dollarz

Directed by Ike Films

I can’t believe this day has come as GLC’s “Clockin’ Lotsa Dollarz” video has finally dropped.  This track and video mean a lot to me as this was something GLC let me become involved in over a year ago – not to mention this video shoot was the very first time I ever met the legendary Bun B (and my video partner in crime Brandon “N2ition” Riley). 

I know there has been a lot of speculation, but yes, the track (and video) actually feature the real Sir Mix-A-Lot, which was no small feat (imagine having to track down Mr. “Put Em On The Glass”).  Chicago-beatsmith, Xcel (who you can find as a security guard in the clip), produced the track, which fits Gangsta L and the Trill O.G. perfectly.  Kanye West later came on board to co-produce the track and add his, as GLC calls it, Pimp Glitter to the mix.

Mikkey Halsted – Nance Boyz (Prod. by Tye Hill)

“Cause when it’s on, joe it’s on, there’s no off switch”

Broadway Streetz just blessed me with the first leak off PHLI Music Vol. 2, his second collaborative effort with Dave Jeff and the PHLI brand. 

Mikk absolutely blacks out over this Tye Hill production, that flips “Groovin”.  And if you can’t respect that, your whole perspective is wack.

Big shouts to Broadway Streetz and the Nance Boyz.
