Video Premiere: Roach Gigz, “Goomba Pimpin’/Kirplunk”



Roach Gigz is straight goofing on the "Goomba Pimpin'" part of this video, rhyming cheekily with a gratuitous two-girl smooch scene so ubiquitous it's got to be a spoof. On the second half Gigz truly flexes why we mess with him: it's the Bay Area rapper's "Roachy Balboa" persona, that scrappy, matter of fact, one-two delivery on lines like kirplunk/ it's over with/ pass the drank, Roach stay soberless/ my goons'll hit you with a clobber fist/ milk the ice off your polar wrist. It's a very precise type of thug prankster, a dude who'll charm you at the same time as threatening to duff you out. Not so great for your long-term prospects in the ring, but super fun to watch a few times on the YouTubes. Bonus! Head to Roach Gigz HQ for a nice personal message and to download the dope Roachy Balboa mixtape.
