[SOHH highlights a hot record every week and offers a behind-the-scenes look at the smash in Singled Out. After ClarkAirlines broke down his “Options” music video, North Carolina rapper Banknote Mitch decodes his “My Partner” anthem.]

“My Partner” is really about my brothers and how we stuck together. I actually started writing the song after I got off the phone with one of my partners.

He’s on a bid doing 25 years. We had a long, positive conversation. I was down here in Charlotte, North Carolina when I wrote it and when I got off the phone, the song was a result of that conversation.

There was no different approach to writing this other than looking at the partners I had lost and the ones that had stood by me.

This one is close to the heart because I really poured my heart into it.

We’re working on the video now and we’re dropping it over the next few weeks. Me and [Feed The Wolves head] Bang Em Smurf are just trying to decide on a date.
