It’s been more than six months since Mookie Jones released his DJBooth-sponsored P.A.N. (Playa Ass N*gga) street album, but is it ever too late to pick up an Outstanding set of tunes? We think not, and evidently the Houston emcee agrees, as he’s returned to our pages to reignite listener interest with the world premiere of the latest video single off the project. Orbit Didi Films craft cinematic visuals to accompany the record, which finds Mookie lacing Street Symphony‘s Far Eastern-informed sample work with laid-back, self-confident meditations on the grind. While acknowledging the hardships of his hustle, he ultimately affirms that the opportunity to stack some paper—and, with the help of his ever-increasing money and status, to get with some of the women who previously wouldn’t give him the time of day—makes all the struggles worthwhile. As he puts it on the hook, “[It’s] heaven and hell in the same shell / The game hurts but the money is the pain pill.” Craving more exceptional tunes?
