"Hopefully when you see me, you won't get mad, taunts S.F. rapper Roach Gigz in "F A Chorus," the brash statement of intent from his brand-new Bitch I'm a Player EP. And he's right -- you'd better not get mad, unless he's hogging your spotlight. 'Cause if there was any doubt why Gigz is our favorite among that crop of up-and-coming Bay Area rappers -- you know, the ones who don't get written about on Complex at least once a week (too late?) -- this new EP oughta put that to rest.

This song and video have the nasal rapper spouting other memorable lines like, "I started real young, had a rubber in my diaper," while swaggering around New York's Times Square. The Kreayshawn-directed video is simple and powerful, emphasizing Gigz's rubber-band delivery and endless flow with quick, bewildering shots. Check out the video and download the new EP after the jump.

EP: Roach Gigz -- Bitch I'm a Player.
