Westside Boogie Drops Introspective New Single “Stuck” Along With Music Video

Published

WESTSIDE BOOGIE’s hot streak continues with his new single, “Stuck,” out now via Shady Records/Interscope Records. With emotional strings, somber piano chords, and G-funk-inspired synths, “Stuck” provides a rich, multi-layered soundtrack for the California rapper’s contemplative bars. The track’s unfiltered, reflective tone is perfectly captured by the Khufu-directed visual. Watch it HERE. Yesterday, BOOGIE also shared a moving performance of the song introducing all of his alter egos(Anthony, RatchetBoog & Superblood Boog) through COLORS. Check it out HERE.
On “Stuck,” BOOGIE documents daily life in Compton, his drive for rap domination, and the hold his neighborhood still has on him. “Tell my momma that I love her, I don’t do that shit enough,” he spits. “I’m a bro bro and a cutta, I love the hood — you know I’m stuck.” The confessional track finds BOOGIE torn between two worlds as he tries to reconcile his past with his bright future. It’s the kind of raw, unflinchingly honest rap that BOOGIE does best. The MC’s internal conflict is expertly conveyed in the powerful video.
“Stuck” follows the blistering “Aight” as the second cut from the rap heavyweight’s hotly anticipated sophomore album “More Black Superheroes”. BOOGIE’s new era comes after a brief hiatus that stretches back to 2020’s “Outside.” That song, which features Pro Era general Joey Bada$$, paid subtle homage to Eminem’s 2000 classic “The Way I Am” while unloading a barrage of jabs at foes, and declaring BOOGIE’s status as one of the greatest rappers going.  With “Stuck,” BOOGIE shows off even more dimensions to his skills, turning in a razor-sharp anthem that showcases the pain that follows him, even when he’s topping the charts.
Few hip-hop artists command a space as purposefully anomalous as Long Beach-born, Compton-bred Anthony Dixson, whose stage name, Boogie, foreshadows his intrinsic talent for writing music that is rooted in realities that are simultaneously melancholy and joyfully uplifting. Oscillating between a soundscape underpinned by ardent praise rhythms and the gritty memories of a youth spent immersed in gangbanging, Boogie’s brand of rap is as much a credo of the streets as it is a constant reflection on purpose and growth.
With critical praise for his debut project Everythings For Sale in 2019, Boogie’s honest and true lyrics gained him fanfare among peers such as Eminem and The Game. With the ability to tell stories around mortality, fatherhood, love, and pain, Boogie has tapped into his gospel roots to work alongside other daring artists like Snoh Alegra, Ari Lennox, and Buddy. Boogie provided fans with a few gifts during the pandemic: The first was his poetic questioning of systemic oppression on Savil’s “Boxed In” back in September and most recently, the celebratory pivot, “12 Days of Bhristmas” with OMB Bloodbath. The latter track was featured on LVRN’s Home for The Holidays LP released in November.

Rocky Dawuni & Kyekyeku “Africa Till I Die” Video Launches on Pan African Music!

Published

on

Friendship between musicians often materializes in collaborations. This is clearly evident on one of the most beautiful pairings from Ghana in the last year, “Africa Till I Die” which grew out of the friendship between multiple GRAMMY nominee Rocky Dawuni and Ghanaian musician Kyekyeku. The brand new video for the track premieres today on Pan African Music.

According to Kyekyeku; ‘’I first heard Rocky in 1997 when his monster hit “In Ghana” was on constant rotation on the radio. It wasn’t until 2007 at the Labadi Beach Hotel on the occasion of the 40th Independence Celebration of Ghana where Rocky held his annual “Rocky Dawuni’s Independence Splash” concert that the two met for the first time.” Moving forward to 2022, at a concert at +233 Jazz Club, Kyekyeku invited Rocky on stage for an impromptu jam on one of his songs. After the concert, it was clear that they had finally found a groove and inspiration for a song to work together on.

After the chaos of the last few years, it became even more evident that a good place to visit and spend time was within Africa. The video was filmed in France and Ghana focusing on the dreams of Kyekyeku in conversation with Rocky on an old phone toy that you still see children playing with in the streets of Accra. It is evident that in those cold empty French streets Kyekyeku dreams to go over the Atlantic and join Rocky in Ghana as he performs with his band and enjoys the sunny weather, bustle and energy of Accra. The music video for “Africa Till I Die” was shot by Slingshot who has worked with Rocky on a number of videos including his most recent GRAMMY Nominated song “Neva Bow Down.” Slingshot states “this video seeks to depict Africa and its beautiful people in its own light, its own words and its very own story and not one portrayed by the skewed perception of the mainstream media of the west.”

Plus the line “no where cool’’ which refers to the wars in Europe, Middle East as well as the general dissatisfaction with daily living in many nations. As a United Nations Goodwill Ambassador for the Environment for Africa, Rocky Dawuni has traveled to many nations and attests first hand from his encounters that indeed all life begins in Africa. ‘“People wey I dey meet, places wey I dey go, na ibi you be the mother, Mama Africa” which he sings in Pidgin English on the track.

African music has finally taken its place as a force; gaining the deserved recognition it commands. Rocky’s line ‘’Now my people dey stand like giant’’ speaks concisely of the achievements of many Africans across the globe.

Africa Till I Die is a musical success. It blends the native sound of Ghana, itself the product of a melting pot, with reggae born in Jamaica and claiming its African roots. The highlife rhythm has been slowed down and, by letting the bass flourish, the organ and the horns place their punctuations, offers a perfect backdrop for the reggae vocals, without even a skank guitar. This is the finest demonstration of a successful encounter, and it could only take place in Africa.”PanAfrican Music
