Apparently if you’re Kirko Bangz the code in Los Angeles is “Thou Shall Not Mess With Ty Dolla $ign”.

His “Rich” video with August Alsina takes on a mini-life of its own. Yes, there’s Kirko getting chased down by an eviction notice and plenty of mouths to feed but there’s also Kirko getting into the drug game, selling and making sure quick money comes fast and in a hurry. The thing about it, even though it’s a tale we’ve heard so many times before is that we’re getting a variety of the Houston rapper here. We know he’s a ladies man, that he can take over a room through charming personality and now he has a second life of playing pro-am celebrity games. But in crafting a star, multiple looks and ideas are necessary.

Kirko Bangz pretty much knows that it’s going to take some fighting to get his Bigger Than Me album, but at least he’s right there with his “Rich” single with Alsina.
