SahBabii Rides a Wild High After Smoking “Purple Ape” in New Video
Sahbabii drops off the cinematic new video for the track "Purple Ape" (July 14) just in time for the weekend roll ups. Directed by The Legendary BenMarc, the new visual brings new life to the lo-fi track off Sahbabii's re-mastered S.A.N.D.A.S. mixtape.
Something like a horror movie, the video first tells the viewer that what they are about to see happened somewhere in Atlanta after midnight under a full moon. Sah and his friend stumble into an eerie house party—where they don't know anyone—just to get some Purple Ape weed. Sah meets his connect in the kitchen of the house, but right before he's about to cop, a sexy girl blows the purple smoke into his mouth and transports him into a green and purple jungle.
"Grim Reaper and forever/I'm in the muthafuckin' Jeep truck/Bitch I'm ridin' with the devil/Catch him down bad then posses him/If he start runnin' then catch him/We splat that nigga like ketchup/Purple dick like the emoji/Bitch I'm a bear like I'm Yogi," rhymes Sahbabii in the second verse.
With talent, vision and cosigns from the likes of Drake and Young Thug, it's clear the ATL spitter has a bright future ahead of him as one of the region's best new artist.
“I’m trying to be big like Michael Jackson. I’m trying to be diverse and make the best music that I can. Not putting out any trash. I’ll make sure every bar and everything I say is correct and sound right,” the Warner Bros. signee told XXL when featured on The Break.
