[SOHH highlights a hot record each Tuesday and offers a unique look at the track in Singled Out. After Carmine decoded his Mannie Fresh-assisted "Plastic" remix, Baton Rouge rapper Webbie breaks down his new "This Is What I Do" Savage Life 4 single.]
You know this song came together because this is what I do. I always tell the people I started out in the bathrooms rapping. I would be in the bathrooms in school and I should have been in class but we were always in there rapping.
I live day to day. My grandmother told me I got to get right. So that's just what it is.
The music video is all Trill Ent. family. We've been doing this forever. This is nothing, baby. We've been doing these kinds of songs and music videos since street money.
I was in the A doing the music video. I was just rolling through the A and wanted to shoot the music video. It only took one day to shoot the video. I keep telling people my life's a movie, all you have to do is press record.
Reality's got it easy. Just push record and that's just what it is. Shout-out to everyone who watches my videos and are out there supporting me. Shout-outs to Baton Rouge.
I have to give credit to everyone at Trill for deciding to go with this record as my Savage Life 4eva single. We've all just been doing music and they threw that up there. It's been working. I've had a number one, number two, number three album in the country before and so I have to keep going.
When urban music splashed its influence thicker in the nation, Gradney moved on with bigger label, Trill Entertainment. The rapper who was only 15 years old was signed to the recording house which was co-owned by the late rapper Pimp C of duo UGK. Together with Lil Boosie, he recorded several indie tapes and slowly became a commodity to rap scene.
