SOB x RBE, comprised of Slimmy B, DaBoii, Lul G, and Yhung T.O, took to the roads of their hometown of Vallejo for the visuals for their track "Carpoolin'." The song is off of their debut album Ganging, released February 23.
The video was directed by Unkle Luc, who has previously has credits on videos for Future, A$AP Mob, and philo B.
“We wanted the first song people heard from this project to be that energy we bring," Yhung T.O. told The FADER, explaining what he loved about the video. "That futuristic nostalgia. We are love rapping over freestyle dance beats because of the energy and the Noel 'Silent Morning' sample just had that feel. And Luc brought his vision to our energy with this video.”
Last April, the trio spoke with The FADER about what it was like to become successful in their town, what it means to be family, and meeting each other for the first time. The Bay Area personalities bring their energy to full speed in the music video, which pairs scenes of the trio riding through Vallejo with trippy visuals.
Executive producer Sir Stretch echoed the observation. “Luc did a great job of bringing his eye to the SOB X RBE sound. A bit of retro with today.”
