Fanatic of the B-side part 2

"I come from where you gotta keep protection
Popeyes and churches in every direction"

Kap G - Southside
(From El Southside mixtape; 2016)

Every great single deserves an equally great if slighly-less-anthemic B-side, therefore the campaign to get Southside officially recognised as the flip-side to Girlfriend starts here. Physical singles might be an extinct format in 2016, but doesn't lil' hombre flipping out to Girlfriend at the prom deserve a La Di Da Di to his favourite song's The Show?

Still can't fathom how Pharrell ended up producing two songs for Kap G. Obviously Lil' Skateboard P needs a recipient for his rap beats now Fam-Lay has practically retired from recording music to manage that BIA lass, but by what quiver of fate did he end up alighting on a Mexican rapper from Georgia? Also can't fathom why Kap G doesn't get more love on t'internet. Sure, chico only averages two jams per project, but so do 99% of those Atlanta rappers t'internet sweats like they're the second coming of D4L.

At risk of sounding like a dick for pointing this out, I think he's talking about Church's, the chicken chain. I know they probably got Popeyes in the UK but I sort of doubt they got Church's. It's not quite as good as Popeye's imo, but it's one of the better big chains.

Hmmm. That would definitely make sense as a very Kap G line. I prefer the dichotomy of Popeyes and (actual) churches in every direction, tho.

America ain't got no love for Nando's?

Tbf in the south Kap G could have been talking about Church's Chicken or actual houses of worship and the line would've stood regardless.

Kap G: Decoded needs to happen, imho.

Yoooooo, I also thought the line was about churches! Styles P is right, tho, works both ways. Kap G-enius more like. Glad to see you've come around to this joint.

Just needed to hear it sans DJ Drama.
