“Live From The Villa” is just a hard rap record equipped with ill rhymes and slick wordplay on one of the darkest beats I’ve made. I used to play this beat during producer competitions and it always got the heads nodding crazy in the crowd.
The meaning behind the song title is self-explanatory…it’s just me serving the people that live, uncut, ruff, rugged, and raw Hip Hop. And the three artists embrace that same quality in their own music. Action Bronson, Roc Marciano, and Willie The Kid have released songs together before and have always proven to be a deadly combination on any track. And “Live From The Villa” is no different…as their chemistry is evident, with each of their verses flowing into the next. And although a lot of these type of collab songs get made thru email, I’m proud to say that this was not one those. I was “live & direct” in the studio with each of them and we’ve recorded a handful of songs, including this one.
And beyond their talent as incredible artists, all three are the most humble and down to earth people I’ve met in music. No Hollywood act, they always show love, they answer my calls or texts, and they’re always down to make more music with me. You don’t always get that from some of your favorite rappers. And I hope “Live From The Villa” is just one of many songs we create together. Until then, I hope the people embrace this one and turn their volume up to 11 (yes, a Spinal Tap reference)…hahaa!”
