Prior to making his blockbuster debut in the drug crime movie, White Boy Rick, starring Matthew McConaughey next week (Sept. 14), IshDARR shares the cinematic “Mucho Mango” visual. The “Wanna Be a Baller”-inspired clip arrives via Billboard premiering today (Sept. 10).
The Milwaukee-bred rapper wanted to make sure he properly paid homage to Houston’s Lil’ Troy with his own alternate rendition. “I really wanted to show respect to the Houston legend and recreate a mini version of the ‘Wanna Be a Baller’ visual,” Ish tells Billboard.
The video’s director, George Gaza, explains that he connected with IshDARR through Instagram and their game plan took off from there. “Ish and I got in touch via Instagram and started talking about working together. He sent me this track and we were both instantly on the same page in terms of concept,” says Gaza.
“Mucho Mango” originally dropped back in 2016 and found its way onto the 22-year-old’s Four the Better, where it immediately jumped out as a standout cut. Catch the multi-talented creative when he hits the big screen alongside his brother, BoodahDARR, below. “I think they’re incredibly talented and can do anything they put their minds to. Maybe they will be renaissance men,” said the film’s director Yann Demange.
For now, give the “Mucho Mango” video a look below.
