The standout track is from the Baltimore rapper’s recent Addie Izzo EP.

In the Baltimore/DMV area, it's arguable that no artist over the past year has hustled harder than A$AP Ant. Ant, who also goes by YG Addie, started his career as a member of A$AP Mob with little-to-no solo material to speak of. But, of late, behind his Marino Infantry platform, he's consistently released projects and apparel, and has done his fair share of bridging the gap between Baltimore and the D.C. Metropolitan Area by collaborating with the likes of fellow Maryland rappers Baby 9eno and LuLu P.

In April he released Addie Izzo, a five-track EP that sees him trying his hand at the popular DMV flow, with colorful production by Sparkheem. Today The FADER is premiering a video for that project's standout track "Dog Day Afternoon." The song title references the 1975 Al Pacino-starring drama of the same name. The production is not unlike that of a fantastical video game and on it, Ant boasts about about his cars and buying property in Baltimore instead of moving away. In an email to The FADER, Ant said that, on a whim, he recorded the song directly after doing a show with Shoreline Mafia. And in the video, he bounces between a church, a library, and a strip club. At least no one can say he isn't well rounded. Watch the video above.
