The unlikely scenario where A-Wax now makes better music than any of the Mob Figaz

Like ANU said in his post about Lay 'Em Down Twice, A-Wax's new album Pulling Strings album is shaping up very nicely indeed. Jetsons really does sound like it was made to be slapped in a flying car, and Trust Issues pulls my own strings in much the same way that The Shooter did last year:

"When I was young they had two things they assured me of: that was death and prison"

A-Wax - Trust Issues
(From the upcoming Pulling Strings album; 2014)

Petition to get noted A-Wax expert Rey to put together a compilation of deep cuts by the rapper with the worst neck tattoo ever starts here.

*EDIT* Ack Miller came through with an A-Wax compilation.

Never heard of Woodie, his wikis heavy "Wood became immersed in gang life and joined the NorteƱos street gang"
starting to question everything I learned from Blood In Blood Out

Woodie's moustache lives on through Cleanhobo.

His internet careers more inspired by Messy Marv's though.

Ha. How about a youtube link to an A-Wax cut in the same vein as Trust Issues?

A-Wax - Feel Free (2003)

Thanx gentlemen.

Kelvin Mack10zie said...

Does A-Wax call himself Wax Fase because he seems to be looking younger and younger every year?

its 2014 and Im #teamawax

I think I prefer his newer deliveryv but, he didnt use to be as comedy either.

d said...

Am I reaching or is there definitely a flow these 00s Pittsburg dudes have? Like stuttered, shouty, kinda east coastish, a lot like Yukmouth. I havent heard enough Yukmouth to verify though.

Like at certain points there I thought I was listening to Fed-X or AP9.

A-Wax's "Feel Free," which Rey linked to, samples a 7 and a half minute Ashanti album track. #bonusbeats https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3jvpT3_6ONE

Oh, well spotted!

This pretty much confirms that Ashanti >>>> Beyonce.
