Video: That Mexican OT – ‚ÄúMucho Gracias”

The Bay City Native Shows Us His Sentimental Side In New Video For ‚ÄúMucho Gracias‚ÄĚ

Critical Praise:

“That Mexican OT is a consummate entertainer: Sometimes he‚Äôs a down-and-dirty villain who cheats to win, other times he‚Äôs a comical babyface and a boisterous drunk… All the while, he underscores how syncretic Texas music has always been, infusing traditions from both sides of the border with his own idiosyncrasies. The result is a brightly colored spectacle, a freestyle brawl of rap styles and regional flavors.”¬†–¬†Pitchfork

“That Mexican OT is having a moment…The 24-year-old from Bay City, Texas, is the latest regional Mexican performer to take over the hearts and minds of a music-loving world. But instead of corridos tumbados y b√©licos or longing cumbias, Virgil Rene Gazca, better known as That Mexican OT (the OT stands for ‚ÄúOutta Texas‚ÄĚ), is making waves in the world of third coast rap.”¬†–¬†Los Angeles Times

“That Mexican OT looks like a cowboy. But he sounds like a rap star.”¬†–¬†The Washington Post

“He’s got his fans hopped up on the same giddy multiculturalism as he is.”¬†–¬†The FADER

“OT‚Äôs creativity and style is introducing something truly unprecedented to the rap industry and the relatively smaller landscape of Latin rap.”¬†–¬†Houston Chronicle

“The Texas rapper is climbing the charts and bridging generational divides”¬†–¬†SPIN

“His deep bag of flows and lyrical creativity as well as his consistent musical output is impressive.”¬† –¬†Lyrical Lemonade

“That Mexican OT‚Äôs Southern Trap Shines On ‘Lonestar Luchador’…OT (Outta Texas) delivers a charming Southern style partnered with his own Bay City flow that makes ‘Lonestar Luchador’ a must-listen.”¬†–¬†HotNewHipHop

The Video:

That Mexican OT¬†is continuing his release run with a new video for ‚ÄúMucho Gracias,‚ÄĚ the penultimate track off his recent critically acclaimed mixtape¬†Texas Technician. That Mexican OT exudes vulnerability on ‚ÄúMucho Gracias,‚ÄĚ as he reflects on his past struggles, vices, and the loss of his mother. Through the use of shadows and cooler tones, the video‚Äôs moody imagery shows OT surrounded by the closest members of his squad as well as penning verses in a dark room. His jagged lyrical flow is complemented by jazzy percussion and somber keys, which give the rapper atmospheric room to speak honestly about his life. OT pulls back the curtain on intimate details of his life through childhood photos, his mother‚Äôs tombstone, and some favorite toys and cartoon characters. In ‚ÄúMucho Gracias,‚ÄĚ viewers are treated to a side of OT that belies his Texas-sized public rap persona.

That Mexican OT recently announced his nationwide 2024 tour, featuring support from fellow Houston rapper¬†Maxo Kream¬†and his close confidante and “Johnny Dang” collaborator¬†DRODi.Kicking off in Louisville, Kentucky on June 12, the tour criss-crosses the country for 33 dates, with stops in¬†Nashville¬†on June 30,¬†New York¬†on July 23, and at¬†Red Rocks Amphitheater¬†in Colorado on¬†June 18th, and including festivals like¬†Lyrical Lemonade’s Summer Smash¬†and¬†Austin City Limits. The tour also features ten different dates in OT’s home state of Texas, stopping at underserved markets in the state for one of their biggest concerts of the year.¬†Tickets for That Mexican OT‚Äôs upcoming tour are available at¬†ThatMexicanOT.net¬†¬†

That Mexican OT is continuing a hot streak that has made him one of the most exciting breakthrough rap stars of the decade so far.¬†He started his legendary run with¬†“Johnny Dang” ft. Drodi & Paul Wall, which spent 12 weeks on the Billboard Hot 100, appeared on his album¬†Lonestar Luchador, and most recently, earned a¬†PLATINUM¬†certification from the¬†RIAA.¬†Acclaimed by¬†Pitchfork¬†(7.5),¬†last July’s¬†Lonestar Luchador¬†made an immediate impact, reaching¬†#1¬†on the¬†Billboard Heatseekers Albums¬†chart and peaking at¬†#59¬†on the¬†Billboard 200.¬†Last fall, That Mexican OT completed the¬†Lonestar Luchador Tour,” the Bay City native’s first-ever headlining tour, selling out dozens of dates across the country. The rapper earned “Best Of 2023” notices from¬†The New York Times,¬†Rolling Stone,¬†Billboard,¬†Complex, and¬†Pitchfork. Recently, OT tore it up at¬†Rolling Loud California 2024, performing his hits in front of thousands of fans, and sat down with Joe Rogan for a wide-ranging discussion that became the¬†most-listened to podcast in the United States on Spotify¬†on its day of release.

Profiled by the¬†Los Angeles Times,¬†SPIN Magazine, and his hometown¬†Houston Chronicle, and featured on¬†XXL’s The Break, That Mexican OT is outta here.¬†Stay tuned for much more from the Bay City, TX rhymer as he launches into the stratosphere.
