E-40's Choices (Yup) is a song with legs longer than Cousin Fik which has taken on numerous lives of its own since 2014, but what may have finally pushed the song to official RIAA Gold status this week is that it's recently blown up in Ghana and inspired a multitude of remakes by Ghanaian natives such as Sarkodie, Yaa Pono, Criss Waddle (lol!), Gallaxy, Skrew Face, Mingle, Papi 5Five, as well as one of the country's biggest artists StoneBwoy.

Ya host was never a big fan of Choices (Yup) since it's E-40 trying his hand at a matter-of-fact Yo Gotti single like Errrbody, so I'm surprised StoneBwoy's remake here has got me inadvertently actin' a fool like Stresmatic in the Rear View Mirror video. Matter of fact, StoneBwoy should do a Ghancehall cover version of Rear View Mirror next so a whole new sub-genre of E-40 remakes by Afrobeats artists can blossom. Call it Sic Ridd Im.
