Double G – YEG Mob ft. Arlo Maverick, Muta Mouraine, Moto, Mr. Nice & $YDBG [Video]
Edmonton, AB – Edmonton’s own Double G teamed up with Arlo Maverick, Muta Mouraine, Moto, Mr. Nice, and $YDGB to bring us this dope new video for the track “YEG Mob.” Our guys took the beat from ASAP MOB’s “Full Metal Jacket” and spit their own bars over top of it.
Six dudes. Six stellar verses. And a distinct Edmonton flavour. Love how these guys basically just identified themselves as being E-Town’s equivalent of the ASAP MOB. The video was shot by Jeff Eckhert. Check it below.
HipHopCanada caught up with some of the guys and asked them which YEG MOB members were most similar to the guys from ASAP MOB. Muta Mouraine identifies most with ASAP Nast. In terms of his fellow crew mates, Muta said that Moto would be ASAP Rocky, $YDBG is like ASAP Ferg, and Arlo would be ASAP Twelvy.
When we caught up with Arlo, he confirmed that he most identifies with either Twelvy or Rocky – citing Twelvy’s dirty mic throwback antics as inspiration for his posse cut verses, and Rocky’s swag and sense of branding as a major influence on his own artistic direction.
