I can't tell my fans apart from all my enemies and don't know what to do

Looks like 2014 is destined to end with Trainwreck as ya boy's favourite deep cut from Pullin' Strings. What's not to love here - it turns one man's misanthropy into something we can all can sing along to, it's a song that could only exist in the A-Wax catalogue, it's one of the tracks which makes it fairly explicit that Pullin' Strings was intended as a semi-sequel to 2004's Thug Deluxe, and it snatches caucasoid sad-rap back from the smarmy clutches of Yung Lean & Ryan Hemsworth.

A-Wax - Trainwreck
(From Pullin' Strings album; 2014)


Ain't tryna brag or nuffink, but I'm stoked the tiny amount of influence I possess on teh rap-internet in 2014 propelled Pullin' Strings onto Pitchfork and into The Wire magazine. 'Wax brought heat to go grocery shoppin' with mom, Drake and Nosnitsky brought 'Wax to the attention of corny indie fux and poncey hauntology twatz, respectively.

This one should have been a single.

Never forget the track from Pullin' Strings A-Wax thought it'd be a good idea to shoot a video for was Trap Dere, a track which absolutely nobody likes.

Pullin Strings is jay's blueprint to a-wax. His album for the critics. And Thug Deluxe is Reasonable Doubt. Then of course Everybody Loves Me & Jesus Malverde are as overlooked as vol 2 & 3.

Savage Timez = the In My Lifetime EP?

CONceptz & CONtradictionz = Vol 1?

A-Wax is white?!!

Even though it was more or less my intro to Wax, wasnt feeling Jesus Malverde bar a few songs.

Recession Proof = Best Of Both Worlds 2 /Watch The Throne

He needs to get that trust fund young fella to pay for a few vids

And John Ferolito Jr. is Beyonce

Pullin' Strings really is the best A-Wax album overall.

2 Sides of the Game & Best of Both Worlds seems like an easy Wax/Jay comparison to make just because the album titles sound so much alike. Woodie the Norteño R. Kelly

"What - you wanna chill or you wanna fight, boy?
Square up wit' 'em and get killed by a white boy
I'm half Italian if that help out any
Plus I never caught a bullet but I dealt out plenty"

"I'm half italian if that help out any"—is Dom Passantino an A-Wax fan?

Trainwreck is a close 2nd to Maury Dance imo, but 3 weeks ago I would have given No limit the #1 spot. And *I* like Trap dere lol

Si Mane Price said...

Ladies and gentlemen, here we have the lesser spotted Trap Dere fan.

I fuck with this song despite/because of the fact that it's secretly a grunge song disguised as a rap song. Imagine the guitars and the rest falls into place.
