PREMIERE: Baby Bash & Frankie J “Candy Coated Dreamer” Video

Born in Houston to a Mexican mom and an American dad, Baby Bash went on to a successful music career on the strength of his 2003 hit “Suga Suga.” This year the Texas rapper reunited with Frankie J to take a stand and counteract the toxic climate in American politics, particularly Donald Trump’s war on dreamers.

Today MASS APPEAL proudly premiere’s Baby Bash & Frankie J’s new video “Candy Coated Dreamer.” The song is an ode to everyone trying to make something from nothing and building careers, families, and futures in spite of anti-immigrant rhetoric and xenophobic political regime.

“It was important to acknowledge the success of a Dreamer whose Candy Coated Dream came to fruition, and grabbed her slice of the American pie,” says Bash. “We celebrate that in a groovy fashion!”  Check the video up top as you give thanks for all the great things that Mexican-Americans contribute to this country every day.
