Baby Stone Gorillas Fly High And Ride Lo-Los In “That’s What You Supposed To Do”




Streaking out of South L.A. with an electric group dynamic, Baby Stone Gorillas turn heads their new spin on the city’s rap sound. Today, the four-man rap group comprised of EkillaOffDaBlocck5MuchP4K, and Top5ivee shares That’s What You Supposed To Do,” their new music video. Produced by BIP The Producer, who provides a glistening West Coast beat with a booming bassline ideal for lowriding, “That’s What You Supposed To Do” finds each of the four rappers offering pearls of street wisdom and living up to their status as heroes in their The Jungles neighborhood: “I got that bag and flipped the fin, that’s what I’m supposed to do,” says EKilla, while Top5ivee adds,  “Ain’t nothin changed but made some change, that’s what you supposed to do.” In the video, the fearsome foursome posts up in a parking lot, surrounded by vintage lowriders including a souped-up, hydraulic bouncing Buick. “That’s What You Supposed To Do” is the latest video from BABYST5XNE GORILLAS, the group’s debut mixtape.

With production from L.A. mainstays like RonRonTheProducer, among others, BABYST5XNE GORILLAS remains electric throughout its 23 tracks, benefitting from the diverse styles and energies of the crew’s four emcees. The new mixtape is home to recent single Do It Up,” an electro-funk throwback with a hook from Wallie The Sensei, as well as 22 new songs, each with the potential to become a new West Coast classic. Armed with a beat from RonRon, “Stick Squeezers” finds the BSG boys recruiting Zona Man and Slumlord Trill to tear up a sample of Too $hort & Lil Jon’s “Couldn’t Be A Better Player.” On “With That,” the four-man crew toe-tag a bass-heavy beat as they explain why they’re the coolest apes in the jungle, and on “In A Circle,” they nab BandGang Lonnie Bands to add some Detroit sauce. Though they specialize in hard-hitting street stories, BSG is equally adept at introspection, as shown in project highlights like “Keep Goin” and “Felt A Lot Of Pain.” With additional appearances from 1TakeJayBla$ta, and many more, BABYST5XNE GORILLAS is available everywhere via EMPIRE.
