Stressing his street bonafides, the Cambodian-American rapper shares “Wit A Sticc” his new video single. Featuring an appearance from Detroit native Tee Grizzley, “Wit A Sticc” strengthens the connection between L.A. and Detroit, capitalizing on both cities’ affections for hyperactive, piano-based loops.
