Video: Roach Gigz – “Goomba Circus” Ft. Pac B & Marlow
VICE’s Noisey Music Premieres New Video From Bay Area Emcee, Roachy Balboa III Mixtape Due Out July 25
Critical Praise for Roach Gigz:
“The funniest rapper working.” – The New York Times
“There’s a…clever mania to his style.” – Complex
“Here’s to the new age of rap. And Roach Gigz. Who is awesome.” – The FADER
Roach Gigz has been on a roll lately building up anticipation for the July 25th release of Roachy Balboa III, the latest in his series of acclaimed mixtapes, and shows no signs of slowing down. Today VICE’s Noisey Music premiered his latest visual for the track “Goomba Circus,” which was shot by David Camarena along the Santa Cruz, California, boardwalk as well as at a sold-out stop from Roach’s recent tour. “We were on a nationwide tour and we just wanted to give a glimpse into what is was like,” says Roach. A sense of fun and frivolity permeate throughout his music and general demeanor, so it wasn’t hard to capture once the cameras came on.
Joined in the video by featured emcees Pac B and Marlow, Roach demonstrates how he not only turned up the heat with live performances, but also maintained his charismatic and fire-starter personality galavanting across the boardwalk. “We were in Santa Cruz and the song is about a circus, so it was perfect,” says Roach, “It was really mostly freestyle shots. Boardwalk security kept trying to kick us out and we kept sneaking back till we had [it] all.” The new mixtape will include features from Kreayshawn, Iamsu!, Clyde Carson and Kool John, and production from Nick Catchdubs, DJ Two Stacks, P-Lo, C-Loz, and more.

Roach Gigz Background:
Hailed by The New York Times as “the funniest rapper working” and selected by 106 KMEL as part of the radio station’s inaugural Freshman 10 class, 24-year-old San Francisco native Roach Gigz has become of the Bay Area’s brightest young stars, covered by outlets like Pitchfork, FADER, XXL, MTV2 Sucker Free, mtvU, and many more. Heavily influenced by Mac Dre and the homegrown hip-hop scene that permeated the Bay Area during the 2000s, Roach has taken a similar approach to his music, telling everyday tales, comical but always true-to-life. Roach Gigz first gained local fame with close friend Lil 4Tay, as one half of the group Bitch I Go (B.I.G.), and since has released two successful Roachy Balboa mixtapes and a debut EP, Bitch, I’m A Player. To date, Roach Gigz has garnered well over five million YouTube views, amassed over 70,000 fans on Facebook, and has over 18,000 followers on Twitter. Now, following the release of Roach’s 2012 album, Bugged Out, and a national tour in 2013 opening for Andre Nickatina, Roach will release Roachy Balboa III, the latest installment in his acclaimed Roachy Balboa mixtape series. Roachy Balboa III will be released for free download on July 25th.
