Westside Connection



05/03/2024 Click here for Spotify, Apple Music, or Youtube. “Westside Connection” is my 76th official release and my 116th track published. This 6-track EP features Kokane from the alcoholics, Tash from the dirty ogs, Xzibit, and Kxng Crooked. This is intellectual music with a hardcore vibe and a west coast sound that pays homage to west coasts legends like Dr. Dre along with conscious bars along side of some of the regions top mcees. It’s more than an album, it a connection, and it not just any connection, it’s a westside connection. The beats and features are all from Anno Domini. The entire project was produced by Keyano and the cover art is by Gigzlogo from Fiverr.


I talk about this blog post and other updates in the latest Sunday update here:




I actually really like “Symphonies.” I took the liberty of explaining why I haven’t made it yet in “hot fire.” I assume the position of and alcoholic and I show you whats important at the end.


Project overgrowth was a domestic civilian disobedience campaign that got started in chat rooms in the 1990s. The government had outlawed marijuana to such a degree that even having it on your land could land you in prison for decades. The problem and advantage is the plant is everywhere, and grows like a weed. So the project was to tell people to take marijuana seeds and plant them everywhere, especially in public parks until there is an overgrowth.


I did a word of the day rhyme for months. I wanna say 7 months, without looking. It doesn’t create enough attention and I don’t have the money or willpower to really make it have that wow factor. I want it to be fun and if I have to worry about all the technical aspects its not fun. Anyways, it’s my aspiration to achieve and like I said in my top 10 that I publish ever year on the blog, to work with Dr. Dre is the ultimate dream.


Lyrics


Afterlife


(Xzibit’s verse)


Forever ever we rock the mic

Even when we’re dead the real will Rise

Like that zombie shit

That Jesus did

My music resurrects the feelin given


That self-determination

And inventive creation

Derivation

And attitude that’s audacious 


X and I are legends

Next level like the episode

On the metronome

We flex on um, impeccable


The way we rhyme, it’s on a pedestal

These pussies are, delectable

My rise to the top is inevitable

Cuz I’m the shit, colorectal flow


From west coast to midwest

We have the most fun

They flex, but we test

And show them up


When you see me playa, just roll up a blunt

And we can reminisce about all songs we’ve done

Show you, how i did it all for the love

And bring this energy to the industry and build up my buzz 


So there’s one thing that I seek

I need you listening to my symphonies


What you know about a fan base

Or all the hate you can take

Or all the waves you can break

When you surfing the music sample bank


It’s my destiny, to rock these beats

I be standing on my own two bringing that heat


That fire, to light the blunt

I’m looking at Xzibit like pass the Dutch 

Alcohol and bud, I’m just tryna amass a buzz

They dissuade and front, while I rage and stunt


We fresh bud, you distillate carts 

Been real from the start, and an ace, word to cards

This shit hear not for the faint of heart

Soon I’ll be meticulously arhythmically climbing the charts


What goes up, must come down

Unless you escape Earth’s gravity and your outer space-bound

Shh, you won’t hear a sound 

As I transcend and descend on you and come for the crown


From west coast to midwest

We have the most fun

They flex, but we test

And show them up


When you see me playa Just roll up a blunt

And we can reminisce about all songs I have done

Show you that I do it for the love

And bring this energy to the industry and build up my buzz 


So there’s just one thing that I seek 

I need you listening to my symphonies


Hot Fire


I was putting in work

While you were getting worked on

I’m a hundred percent independent dawg

I own my own masters and control my songs

They trust in me because my word is bond 


Bang this in the east

Bang this in the west

Turn up the base and make it sweat

Hot fire, on the deck

I bring the heat, til she wet and vexed


I ain’t in a gang but damn I bang

These lyrics are a verbal assault that I slang

You should be offended by what I have to say

They like my evil, sinister accolades 


Sit and Stu in your hate, cuz I do what you can’t

I’m here to piss the world off and take some names

Of these wack Mcees that think they’re great

Cuz they can’t compare to what I’ve made 


I was putting in work

While you were getting worked on

I’m a hundred percent independent dawg

I own my own masters and control my songs

They trust in me because my word is bond 


Bang this in the east

Bang this in the west

Turn up the base and make it sweat

Hot fire, on the deck

I bring the heat, til she wet and vexed


I been grinding for years, without reward

I’ve made less and spent more than that job of yours

Tryna build an audience to go on tour

But the algorithm not interested in promoting my store


Success in the industry is more about

Who you know, not the songs you put out

How much you have to invest Is basically clout

Cuz you can pay for the promotion that plays you loud


In hip-hop, hard work doesn’t pay off

Unless you have an audience and can rock a crowd 

If you don’t agree then tell me how

When the room is empty that plays your sound


But This flow so retro like you got it on your iPod

I wanna get that money like a reticulating python

Real real long, like pics from a Nikon 

It’ll be forever Until I die like Rit or Dylon


I was putting in work

While you were getting worked on

I’m a hundred percent independent dawg

I own my own masters and control my songs

They trust in me because my word is bond 


Bang this in the east

Bang this in the west

Turn up the base and make it sweat

Hot fire, on the deck

I bring the heat, til she wet and vexed


Happy Hour


(Hook)


We drinkin beers, takin shots

As you’re sippin suds, let your body rock 

Weather in the cut, club or spot

Alcohol is what you got


This really isn’t funny, I have problems

And make them go away by shooting vodka 

My gaba receptors can’t handle the interruption

I’d probably have a seizure if i just drank nothing


So Imma lean back sippin

World Spinnin for my health

We need free healthcare

Before I can afford some help

I spend money on addiction

Not accumulating wealth

As long as a drink in my hand

The problem solves itself


At the bar playin the game “you call it”

At happy hour, 


(Hook)


This the type of music, To tell you how to do it

Because Technically, alcohol is a solution


My therapist said I need healing

But I don’t like sharing

So I drink, till I can’t feel feelings


Tennessee and Kentucky like a country song

That’s Jack and Jim whiskey in my cup

Thought I found a girl to love, and have some fun

Turns out I can’t remember who she was 


You’re not a bad person because you drink

We all got problems, I hope you see

It’s okay to fall apart, relapse, and binge

Tacos fall apart and we still love them


But Cirrhosis of the liver ain’t gon’ develop itself

It needs help, so call me


(Hook)


We drinkin beers taking shots

As your sippin suds, let your body rock 

Weather in the cut, club or spot

Alcohol is what you got


This the type of music, To tell you how to do it

Because Technically, alcohol is a solution


Damn I’m thirsty, I hope they serve me

If not I’m asserting 



Project Project Overgrowth


(Tash Verse)


Puff puff pass and blaze the weed up

From Michigan to Cali go and spread that seed stock


This is Protect Project overgrowth

Go ahead and help it grow


This sound like the dope you roll and smoke


Puff puff pass and blaze the weed up

From Michigan to Cali go and spread that seed stock


This is Protect Project overgrowth

Go ahead and help it grow


This sound like the dope you roll and smoke


Throw those seeds in ditches

Til the weed takes grip and then

Plant them in parks

Undercover at dark


On the side of the road

Or in a box in your home

They call it a weed, so plant it and let it grow


The plan is to overwhelm the government

With marijuana germaneness 

Put in the work to get

An overgrowth of permanence


Blow her back out 

Then she ask for it again like please

All my boys with the bud be like “sheesh”

I do it for the love, and that buzz, capeesh

To bad we can’t make THC outta yeast


Drink a drink that beer

I know you’re thirsty

Celebrate, go shawty, it’s your birthday


Drink a drink that beer

I know you’re thirsty

Celebrate, go shawty, it’s your birthday


God’s plant is calling you to get dirtay

What you need to do 

Is plant weed for Earth Day 

then


Puff puff pass and blaze the weed up

From Michigan to Cali go and spread that seed stock


This Protect Project overgrowth

Go ahead and help it grow


This sound like the dope you roll and smoke


Puff puff pass and blaze the weed up

From Michigan to Cali go and spread that seed stock


This Protect Project overgrowth

Go ahead and help it grow


This sound like the dope you roll and smoke


These cali girls got me pitchin a tent 

At Cocella wishing I was playin a set

Ride down PCH lookin out west

And she’s like “I want you to stay and get wet”


Cuz I do it for my girls

That growing all the herb

Harvest every 10 days when I’m chilling with her


She always horney, and likes to be on top

Feeling trim, and like a lollipop


Break it break it down now

How they gonna find out?

Germinate and spread around

Seeds while in your local town


Then

Drink a drink that beer

I know your thirsty

Celebrate, go shawty, it’s your birthday


Drink a drink that beer

I know your thirsty

Celebrate, go shawty, it’s your birthday


God’s plant is calling you to get dirtay

What you need to do 

Is plant weed for Earth Day

then


Puff puff pass and blaze the weed up

From Michigan to Cali go and spread that seed stock


This Protect Project overgrowth

Go ahead and help it grow


This sound like the dope you roll and smoke


Puff puff pass and blaze the weed up

From Michigan to Cali go and spread that seed stock


This Protect Project overgrowth

Go ahead and help it grow


This sound like the dope you roll and smoke


Aspiration


I’ve made my name, like Dr Dre

I’m a legend from the lane I’ve paved

Edutainment, what you learn today?

Aspiration is the word of the day


Aspiration is about what you aspire to be

A goal that you strive for and try to believe

Obstacles in the way of what you're trying to reach

Is how you dominate adversity and learn to achieve


Failure is natural,

Make up what they lack, envoke

If you don’t have the capital

Put in the work until it’s equitable 


If you have hate in your heart, let it flow

Back into your home and shut the door

Don’t start nothing, it won’t be nothing

Unless it’s your hope

To spread some love at the show


I got that feeling and let ‘em know

Coming real,  is the next episode


I’ve made my name, like dr Dre (still)

I’m a legend From The lane I’ve paved

Edutainment, what you learn today?

Aspiration is the word of the day


Aspiration is about what you aspire to be

A goal that you strive for and try to believe

Obstacles in the way of what you're trying to reach

Is how you dominate adversity and learn to achieve


I need a doctor because I forgot about Dre

But the physician said, it’s nothing but a G thing

What your seeking, is chronic and riesling 

You gotta guilty conscious from the envy you’re feeling


No diggity, I got some California love

All the way from Michigan I’ve been telling them thugs

From the D to LBC is the simplest cuz

That’s the route of the next shipment of bud 


So I roll another blunt and try to focus

On writing dope bars while I’m toke’n

Puffin the leaf often leaves me stolid 

But Dre in my mind saying “make it explosive”


We gotta smoke that weed, some devils spinach

While tracking the lyrics on beat and rhythm

I’m telling you, look before you finish

Let me put some kush up in it


I’ve made my name, like dr Dre (still)

I’m a legend from the lane I’ve paved

Edutainment, what you learn today?

Aspiration is the word of the day


Aspiration is about what you aspire to be

A goal that you strive for and try to believe

Obstacles in the way of what you're trying to reach

Is how you dominate adversity and learn to achieve


What If 


Yo what's happening, it's King Crooked

I dedicate this to all the rappers out there

That's better than the rapper that's on right now

I know it's hard, hold up


I know you wanna make it to the tip-top

But it's difficult to get it in Hip-hop

So you side hustle, bag it in the Zip-Loc

Cause you're too lyrical to go viral on TikTok

Under the radar every time your shit drops

Cause they listening to kidz bop

And you like 'Ah nah... Dog... Y'all really think that shit's hot?!'

How many spitters the top ten got pen drop


Silence of the Lambs there's too many sheep

While you reaching for your dreams there's too many asleep

But you in there deep so you gotta keep going through the pain and the failure

You gotta keep growing

Let me tell you what this shit is about

This rap biz is a math quiz, figure it out

Bigger the problem you solve, the bigger your house

Bigger the cheques and six figure amounts hit your account


If music is your real occupation

This ain't no rap homie this is a consultation

A business conversation about your operation

I see the spot you're chasing like Roc Nation

What if you never meet Jay

You never meet Em'

What of you never meet Dre

You never meet them

You better be ready

You're never overweight to take chances

Then your chances can never be slim

I want you to make it


I know I can make it, I’ll build it up

Put in the work, but still hope for luck

In this philosophy of mine and I’ll tell you what

As long as the sun shines, Imma soak it up


I know I can make it, I’ll build it up

Put in the work, but still hope for luck

In this philosophy of mine and I’ll tell you what

As long as the sun shines, Imma soak it up


I don’t need to be at the tip-top

Just wanna represent hip-hop

Banksy to my Basquiat 

Be like exit through the gift shop


Wanna bump it loud

Make the OGs proud 

Be like he bite me here 

But made it his own sound


I wanna be like Tyrese

Represent and take the lead

Change what you see 

By educating through reach


Work with platinum producers

Teach my audience cool shit

Find a new ways to grove to it

While we’re making the music


Of course I want to meet Dr. Dre

But I’d take Timberland or DJ Quik

I would be honored to lay a rift

See if you’re open, and have the bandwidth


I’ll serve Um up like a sandwich 

Put on Jurmain Dupree as the deli meat

Pharelle as the cheese and spread upon the Mustard seed

Learn some alchemist, Classified, or the Rza

Got that Metro Boomin' Swizz Beats like J Dilla


I know I can make it, I’ll build it up

Put in the work, but still hope for luck

In this philosophy of mine and I’ll tell you what

As long as the sun shines, Imma soak it up


I know I can make it, I’ll build it up

Put in the work, but still hope for luck

In this philosophy of mine and I’ll tell you what

As long as the sun shines, Imma soak it up


It’s hard not to be dark

Damn Crooked brought the art

I think about it all the time

What if my dreams are never realized


What if I never meet Em, What if I never meet Tay

What if I never meet Mary and get carried away

What if I never meet Cary and try to marry her and stay

What if we don’t become us but face rejection all the way


What if I never find love

What if I never become the one

What if I stop putting up money

Cash my chips and say I’m done


But on the real homie, I’ve already made it

I don’t have to work but still can’t pay for it


This all me, I don’t get no help

Don’t have a label or a manager, hell

I don’t have the money, I’m going into debt

Cuz this an investment and it’s going to sell


But what if I never blow up

What is I can never afford a home

What if investing in this rap shit was what’s was really wrong

What if I never get the opportunity to get out on stage

What if they never get to see love your way


What if my meds fail and I find myself harboring

Malcontent for the ones that are starving 


What if my cards are spent

And my chips are in

I’m called and fallen

Come up short and like Van Gogh


I paint it like Bawden 

She gotta know I’m all in

I love her and the thought of it

But what if I never meet Charlotte 


I know I can make it, I’ll build it up

Put in the work, but still hope for luck

In this philosophy of mine and I’ll tell you what

As long as the sun shines, Imma soak it up


I know I can make it, I’ll build it up

Put in the work, but still hope for luck

In this philosophy of mine and I’ll tell you what

As long as the sun shines, Imma soak it up


And I know I’ll make it, cuz I’ll build it up

Put in the work, but still hope for luck

In this philosophy of mine and I’ll tell you what

As long as the sun shines, Imma soak it up


I know I can make it, I’ll build it up

Put in the work, but still hope for luck

In this philosophy of mine and I’ll tell you what

As long as the sun shines, Imma soak it up


All the what-ifs in the world can’t amount to the action you take
