CHA CHA ITS YA BOI DJACC AND I M XTATIC 2 SEE U BUT DATS A BRINKS TRUCK POPPIN OUT MY POCKET. LOCK IT.
What he said.
DeSean Jackson’s latest jam, Brinks Truck, was released on YouTube yesterday. Produced (and presumably funded) by his label, Jaccpot Records, Brinks Truck celebrates the foolish lifestyle lived by so many athletes and rap stars, and unintentionally foreshadows the inevitable bankruptcy that said Brinks truck will lead to when it hauls ass out of a given pocket, ostensibly from making it rain in da club and, well, blowing stacks on rap videos.
Last week, while catching up on ESPN's 30 for 30 series, I watched Broke, the Billy Corben-directed documentary that details the other side of excess and explains why 78% of former NFL players are either bankrupt or under financial stress, some from dumping money into failed rap careers. And DeSean, it would seem, is destined for an appearance in Broke 2.0: When You Realize YouTube Videos are Difficult to Monetize. His Brinks truck is already carrying a lighter load after dropping off $10k to Meek Mill last December and $25k at da club in 2011.
All of that said… the song isn't awful. It's Lou Will good, which isn’t a bad thing. The refrain is tired and painful, but the beat and hooks, and booty-poppin’ cameo from Lee Mazin, are catchy and not horrible. So… there’s that.
Watch it after the jump.
