Do you remember your first set of friends from your childhood? Although we don’t keep in contact often, me and my sandbox buddies are homies for life. LA’s Baby Stone Gorillas remind us all that their lifelong camaraderie is not to be questioned in the video for loyalty anthem, “Start Sumn.” Over slow-burning RonRonTheProducer production, the West Coast quartet deliver tough-talking raps in their signature cypher-like style.
Top5ivee and P4K hold the track down with spitfire flow and casual delivery, setting us up for a crescendo in energy provided by 5Much and EKillaOffDaBlocck. Valuing loyalty over dishonor, the guys make it clear that starting something with their crew isn’t the smartest idea, with P4K rapping, “Body-bagged his a**, the paramedics couldn’t bring him back/That boy acting tough, he seen BSG and had a heart attack.” The dimly-lit video finds each of the LA risers in their own element as Top5ivee sticks close to his personal cash register, 5Much smokes a backwood on a red luxe throne, P4K totes big sticks and makes it rain blue faces, and EKillaOffTheBlocck vibes in an arcade with a bottle of Don Julio.
With the recent BABYST5XNE GORILLAS out now, and with co-signs from hometown heroes YG and DJ Mustard, as well as praise from Fredo Bang, Baby Stone Gorillas are here to stay and warn you of one thing: “Don’t ‘Start Sumn,’ won’t be nothing.”
