You say there's money on my head, do I fear that shit?

"Guess again, man - them muthaf*ckers bleed like me
If they plan on sneakin' up they better breathe lightly
Or be like he who last tried to take my life
Who I never think about unless I wake in the night
Maybe you right, maybe I'm a threat to me
Perhaps a bullet from an enemy will set me free"

A-Wax - Tha Streets
(From ???; 2006)

A-Wax videos were so much more entertaining when they were mini-movie realisations of his fantasies about kidnapping Husalah. Since 'Wax now takes out such frustrations on his Mob Figaz bĂȘte noire by clowning him on Instagram for shopping at Nike discount outlets, his videos have consequently suffered by becoming an interchangeable string of yer standard rap video cliches: walking in slow-motion, blowing smoke wistfully into cameras, standing on inanimate objects doing rap-hands. What A-Wax music videos need in 2016 is less posin' and more poison.

I got love for A-Wax but this is not why I'm here, have you heard the new Agallah ?

First song got Azie Faison of Mobstyle on it, boom there you go. First listen and it's a real good album so far, Brooklyn good music the way it should be.

Robbie was raving to me about that Agallah. The AZie song is the only thing I've heard from it.

Thanx ANU. So it's an expanded dj version of the first Jr High?

Fred said...

I meant BK gooN music. Anyway I discovered Agallah because of this blog so I figured I'd post that.

Thanks Fred.

Does that A-Wax jpg set off Mcafee for anyone else?

Unsafe page warning.

Can't see the track listing properly :(

Also, what's the A-Wax song that's playing on the TV behind him during the intro?

sisilafami said...

it's different from jr high 1 & 2, although there might be some intersections with other projects ('gates' is on jr high 2).
it's one of wax's best album/tape imo.

new link for the tracklist :
