Payroll Giovanni Drops “This Is How We Move It” Video
It can be very difficult for a new artist to recapture the magic once put on wax with an older, classic record. But Detroit emcee Payroll Giovanni may have figured out that formula in his new video "This Is How We Move It," and he's bringing his fellow Doughboyz Cashout artists HBK, Roc and B Ryan with him.
Using the song "This Is How We Do It" by Montell Jordan as inspiration, Payroll gets B Ryan to sing the hook on the Helluva-produced song but switches up the lyrics to spin it into a trapper's anthem. The voice on the hook is unusually similar to Montell's, making the updated version that much stronger. The Jerry Production-directed video keeps it old school with a static-filled filter, making it feel like the mid '90s despite the timestamp. While Payroll, HBK and Roc switch up their flows to detail their diligent work ethic on the corners, you can spot some of their friends pull out some dance moves from years ago.
"This Is How We Move It" comes off his Payface project. This isn't the first time he's used a familiar song for the beat. He also flipped a sample of the theme song from Scarface for "Payface." Payroll has not only worked with Jerry Production on music videos but they've also collaborated on a short film titled Day in the Life.
