"That don't hurt?" Baby Bash asks a scantily clad girl writhing upside down on a stripper poll at the video shoot for his infectious new single, "That's How I Go."
The girl is hanging upside down on the pole, and Bash can't help but ask if the position is painful. However, despite the gaggle of exotic dancers on set, Bash's new video isn't taking place at a gentleman's club. Instead, the locale is simply a fitness studio in Los Angeles that happens to have a few stripper poles. If you live in L.A., that's not at all surprising. Regardless, the vibrant video follows Bash as he goes from a tattoo shop to the fitness studio, chased by the paparazzi and the aforementioned, surprisingly acrobatic dancers.
Bash is a vision of modern swagger. Donning a dapper white hat, blue plaid sweater vest and a light aqua polo shirt, he looks chill but dignified. There's a bevy of people gathered around the shoot too, including Bash's longtime friend and collaborator, Frankie J. Frankie glances at the same "flexible" young lady and jokes, "That's some raw talent!"
Amidst all the laughs, lights, talent and strippers, Baby Bash took some time to give us an exclusive look at his playlist. He opened up his iTunes for ARTISTdirect.com and allowed us to peek inside. The enigmatic, charismatic and friendly Bash even let us dig into his catering!
Check out what Baby Bash is spinning below and be on the lookout for his fantastic "That's How I Go" video featuring Mario and Lil Jon.There's no doubt that Bash's next full-length album will be another unforgettable concoction of hip hop and pop, but for now, here's what he's cranking!
