Following the recent release of his Clean Ass Whip mixtape, Prince Aries is excited to release a brand new video from the tape, this one for the mixtape’s title track, “Clean Ass Whip,” starring on the song, and making his production debut along with co-producer Big D, is Aries’ SWTBRDS label mate DaVinci, who’s currently putting the finishing touches on his forthcoming EP and LP, Feast Or Famine, and The MOEna Lisa. The tape is largely a collection of West Coast classics, and while “Clean Ass Whip” serves as one of the mixtape’s new exclusives, you’ll be hard pressed to find a song on the project – or anywhere, for that matter – that fits such a textbook definition for riding music.
All the way down to the first sampled note of the beat, the track begs to be played out of car speakers, windows down, on a nice spring day, and director Marcus Ubungen doesn’t disappoint, featuring DaVinci and SF legend San Quinn, as well as chorus crooner Matt Blaque, alongside a classic Chevy Chevelle and sleek Corvette as they ride through the city showing off some of San Francisco’s finer sights. “It’s one of those good ol’ cruising songs that the West Coast is known for,” remarks Aries. “Basically, just hop in your whip, cruise around, and play this song. Loud.”
