HipHopDX Premiere – Denver-based rapper TheyCallMeAP — or AP for short — recently dropped f his new album WINS and now, the Park Hill force nature is back with a video for “Saturday.” Throughout the track, AP details a raucous weekend in the Mile High City.
Armed with colorful balloons and enough swag to fill a swimming pool, the video simultaneously pays tribute to the classic ’90s film Friday starring Ice Cube and Chris Tucker. In this case, AP and fellow Denver rapper Trev Rich swap roles with the iconic duo.
AP held an exclusive release party last month at an undisclosed location. The price a ticket ranged from $50 to $100. Why? It was his response to a music industry that fails to pay artists what they’re worth, streaming revenue amounts to less than a cent per listen and venues get paid before artists at concerts.
Despite the high ticket price, the show sold out, a testament to his loyal fanbase.
One AP’s next shows is May 15 at Englewood, Colorado’s Gothic Theatre. Tickets range from $30-$35.
