The story of how Wes Period's "Big Bag" became the official theme song for Ball In The Family, the best reality TV show since Flavor of Love Girls: Charm School, is pure fate: "A friend of mine was helping the Ball family find music for the show. When I heard about it, I knew I had the perfect song," the Los Angeles rapper explained in an email. "At first they told me it was gonna close out the first episode. Then I got a call back saying it was going to be the theme song. Pretty crazy. Definitely spoke this one all the way into existence."
And it really is an uncannily appropriate song to soundtrack the Chino Hills dynasty's on- and off-court shenanigans. Wes Period swags through sharp, memorable one-liners, turning an otherwise mellow beat into the perfect vehicle for a three-minute boast: "Big bag, real big bag / Why you mad with your itty bitty bag? / Black man, getting money like my dad / Hundred million on the line, that's a fact." Same, kind of.
The song's video, premiering today on The FADER, captures that energy. It's got everything: a Benz painted by Coinslot, hella cash tossed into the air and stuffed into the front of a pair of pants, and other colorful hijinks. Watch above.
