unnamed-2-3-500x500 That Mexican OT Drops 'Texas Technician' Mixtape and Video for Twisting Fingers with MoneyBaggYo

That Mexican OT returns with his mixtape Texas Technician, his first new full-length since his breakout 2023 project Lonestar Luchador. Out now via Manifest/GoodTalk/Good Money Global, the new project features Billboard Hot 100-charting single “02.02.99,” the recently-released “Point ‘Em Out” ft. DaBaby, and “Twistin Fingaz,” a collaboration with Moneybagg Yo that received a new video today. Texas Technician is a tribute to the Lone Star State’s rich hip-hop history, welcoming guest appearances from Houston legends like Paul WallSlim ThugZ-Ro, and Propain, and rising Texans like OTB FastlaneDrodi, and Hogg Booma.

Rolling his r’s with reckless abandon as he lays down his rapidfire rhymes, That Mexican OT is Texas to the bone. Today, the Bay City native shares Texas Technician, his new mixtape, and a high-octane tribute to his home state’s bountiful rap scene. Refining the all-encompassing sound that he developed for his breakout 2023 album Lonestar Luchador, the new Texas Technician hones in on a sound that has percolated in the Lone Star State for decades–slow moving, warped, haunting, speaker-knocking Texas rap. Along with A-listers from across the country, OT rolls out the purple carpet for fellow Texans, including Trill-era legends like Paul Wall, Slim Thug, Z-Ro, and Propain, and contemporaries like Trapboy FreddyOTB Fastlane, and his Bay City running mates Drodi and Hogg Booma.

Texas Technician is home to the recent single “02.02.99,” a haunting horrorcore heatrock which became one of OT’s biggest hits. Released in early January, the song has generated over 34 million streams across platforms. “02.02.99” peaked at #74 on the Billboard Hot 100, spending three weeks on the chart. He followed “02.02.99” with “Point ‘Em Out,” a collaboration with DaBaby that spawned a Pulp Fiction-referencing video. These highlights are joined by 14 new bangers, including the apocalyptic “Chicken Strips & Ass,” his latest collab with “Johnny Dang” compadre Paul Wall, the high-rolling “Cowboy In an Escalade” ft. Trapboy Freddy, the screwed-up outlaw story “Crooked Officer” ft. Z-Ro, “Hola,” a Fredo Bang-featuring slapper that somehow borrows from both Tejano music and East Coast club, and more. With production from regular collaborators like DJ Skelez and national names like Bankroll Got It, the new tape is an immersive world into OT’s day-to-day, filled with dirty syrup, clean Escalades, and an endless parade of sold-out dates.

Another major highlight is “Twisting Fingers,” OT’s collaboration with Moneybagg Yo, which receives a brand new video today. Produced by Bankroll Got It, “Twisting Fingers” is a low-down, dirty, bass-heavy banger with stabs of horror movie strings, as OT and Bagg each promise to stay loyal to gang no matter how successful they become. Directed by OT’s frequent shooter DGreen Filmz, the video is a flashback to the rapper’s rambunctious school days. He talks smack on the bus to school, shoots dice in the restroom, and learns lessons in American sign language from Mr. Bagg, aka Moneybagg Yo.
