The video was shot in Atlanta, GA. It was directed by Lacey Duke and is continues the fun, colorful style D.R.A.M. has become known for, with no shortage of colorful cash provided Mister E. The video’s release comes on the heels of another milestone for D.R.A.M., as his hit single “Broccoli” is currently the #1 song on the Rhythmic radio charts.
Recently, D.R.A.M. – who Entertainment Weekly called one of their “9 new artists to watch” – took over Samsung’s 837 space in downtown New York City as part of the “Samsung presents Live at 837” series, where he premiered the “Cash Machine” video, participated in an intimate Q&A with acclaimed hip-hop personality Sway Calloway, played songs from his new album, and then closed the night with a performance of some of his biggest hits, which had the packed venue on their feet & dancing.
BIG BABY D.R.A.M. features fan favorites “Cash Machine” and “Cute,” as well as the chart-topping, double platinum single, “Broccoli.” Originally released on SoundCloud in March, “Broccoli” currently sits atop Billboard’s “Top Rap Songs” chart, #6 on the Billboard Hot 100, #3 on Spotify’s “United States Top 50” chart, #6 on iTunes’ “Overall Songs” chart, and is currently #2 at Urban radio. As if all this weren’t enough, the companion video has over 53 million views.
