BPAfter heating up the streets with the single, Xyclone, Cee Gee and Beenie Man present to you the music video for the remix to “Back Pocket Rag“. Directed by Upsetta Films, Muztang Media and RSQTHP Films, we hear the three artists speak on people watching their moves, keeping their names in their mouths and advising them to stop sitting on their names like a back pocket rag. We also get scenes of a street dance where people are enjoying themselves and dancing to the popular single. Not a bad video here, Xyclone has been putting in a lot of work with this single so it’s good to see a visual for it. What do you think?

It’s only natural when an offspring of an entertainer wants to follow in their parents’ footsteps. On Onstage over the weekend, Marco Dean, son of D’Angel and Beenie Man joined his mom on Onstage to speak on his plans for Mother’s Day. Here the 8 year old spoke about School, making something for his mother for Mother’s Day, not wanting to follow the footsteps of his mom and dad, and being an active kid. D’Angel also spoke about her career, enjoying her son’s growth, being a “Momtrepreneur“, closing down her clothing business to focus on her career and motherhood, being an actress and her upcoming film, and future plans. This was a hilarious interview as Marco Dean is just being a kid here, it’s good to know that Beenie and D’Angel are working hard to be loving and supporting parents. Check out the video below and share your thoughts in the comments section.
