David Banner ft. Snoop Dogg, Game, Nipsey Hussle, Kree & Ras Kass - Californication

Posted 4 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
David Banner & THX
Album:
Sex, Drugs & Video Games

2000 single Californication found the Red Hot Chili Peppers peeling back the glossy exterior Los Angeles projects to the rest of the world to reveal the seamy reality underneath. On David Banner‘s new single of the same name, the Mississippi rapper-producer tries a similar trick with a different emphasis, showing how hazardous the City of Angels can be for unwary tourists (especially those with the wrong complexion). Banner collaborates with THX behind the boards, crafting a slow-rolling street instrumental to back him as he chronicles how a visit to his Uncle Trayvon (played by Snoop Dogg—and no, I have no idea whether the reference to current events was intended), went horribly wrong. Game, Nipsey Hussle and Ras Kass also guest, playing the various characters the headliner encounters during his tumultuous first 24 hours in town, and Kree ties the package together with a reedy, falsetto-laced chorus. Feeling it? Californication is just one of many dope—and diverse, judging by the leaks thus far—cuts to be found on Banner’s Sex, Drugs & Video Games LP, scheduled to hit the ‘net May 22, for free download.
