Big Moochie Grape refuses to let a single bag escape his grasp. Maneuvering to the money by any means necessary, Moochie reunites with fellow Memphis native and Paper Route Empire signee, Key Glock, to share his latest video for “Breakdance,” a highlight from his East Haiti Baby project. While Bandplay’s haunting, albeit charged-up production evokes imagery of a haunted mansion-turned-traphouse, Moochie and Glock trade bars like Halloween candy: “VVS diamonds on big Glock breakdance,” raps Glock, as Moochie responds, “Post in the trap and I serve Lindsay Lohan.” The video for “Breakdance” finds the PRE playmakers counting big stacks in a battered building scattered with rubble from blown out concrete walls. The scene might not always be pretty but if the bag is there, Moochie’s never far behind.
Aided by signature Tennessee-style production from Bandplay, Sosa 808, Ayoza, 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 1.5 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 Ate, an hard-hitting EP that earned coverage in XXL, UPROXX, 2DopeBoyz, HotNewHipHop, 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” (1.4 million views), and made his mark on Paper Route Empire Presents: Long Live Dolph, delivering the powerful and defiant “In Dolph We Trust“ (1.5 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.
