H-Town, stand up! Kirko Bangz takes fans to Houston for a lesson on how to “Swang N Bang,” the Texas way.
Directed by Mr. Boomtown, the sleek visual has an old school bounce, much like the candy-painted lowriders that appear throughout. Whether rolling on a bike, drinking a beer, or hot boxing in a van, Kirko is rapping about Houston pride while beautiful women surround him for the summer-ready anthem.
“Summertime in my city,” he raps. “Woodgrain, I’ma grip it / Give me the cup, give me the ice, give me the drank, I’ma sip it.”
Recently, Bangz told The FADER that the song is really about the culture he was raised by and that it’s not necessarily about being paid.
“‘Swang N Bang’ is a part of the Houston culture,” he said. “You don’t have to be rich to swang n’ bang, it’s more about the feeling when you in your ride. You feeling good, looking good, fresh cut, clean as hell, summertime sun shining, tops drop trunk popped. Whether it’s sunny or gray we go’n ball n’ parlay.”
“Swang N Bang” is a single off the H-Town MC’s forthcoming album, which is due this year via 300 Entertainment.
