In the video, stylishly directed by Donthypeme and WeTheShooters, Wacotron illustrates the difficult choices that one needs to make in order to survive in the hood. As Wacotron and his friends post up outside a convenience store, the camera is drawn towards a teenager forced to steal food in order to feed his family. “Gram And A Hoodie” is the latest in a line of quality visuals, following “Checclist,” which dropped two weeks ago, and earlier videos for “Take Off“ and “Toothpaste.“
A native of Waco, TX–hence his name–Wacotron showed a passion for music from a young age, absorbing the 808-driven trap music he listened to in the car with his dad. After spending years mired in the struggle, Wacotron turned to rap in his 20’s, searching for a better way to provide for his family and escape his circumstances. The rapper started to build a reputation in his home state, eventually catching the attention of Pick Six Records, who signed him to a deal and connected him with Southside and 808 Mafia.
With the weight of the influential 808 Mafia behind him, Wacotron is in prime position to make his mark on the rap game in 2021. Stay tuned for much more music from the artist in the weeks to come, including his upcoming debut project Smokin’ Texas.
