It's evident in the “Christopher Wallace” video, the PRE rapper appears in NYC, in a Coogi sweater, Versace, while standing next to the late Young Dolph. It takes a confident person to use The Notorious B.I.G’s name, monicker, and likeness in BIG’s city, no less.
With concise blatant word play and a strong delivery Moochie raps,
“She f*** me real good because she know I’m important/Come to East Haiti we do the extorting”
It’s bitter sweet to see Dolph in the video, but seeing Dolph obviously believe in Big Moochie Grape and support his music makes one want to invest the time to see what he saw in Moochie. It’s admittedly clear that Moochie’s time is now. As a Haitian American rapper, thanks to Kodak he could be fast tracked to mainstream success.
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 over 1 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.
We like Big Moochie Grape, and you should too.
