The Slauson Boyz ft. J Blacc - Stayin Alive

Posted 6 years ago
Producer:
1500 or Nothin'
Album:
There Goes the Neighborhood (Vol. 1) Mixtape

Let’s start with what this record is not: Stayin Alive, the latest mixtape leak from Nipsey Hussle-fronted crew Slauson Boyz, is in no way, shape or form inspired by the Bee-Gees’ disco standard of the same name – and thank God for that. What it is (besides being an exclusive world premiere!) is something considerably more fresh and creative. Here, a dark, synth-driven groove by 1500 or Nothin chugs away in the background as Hussle, H60dsta Rob, Cobby $upreme, and Cuzzy Capone look back on their day-to-day struggles to survive in the inner-city streets. Fortunately, the crew’s musical talents allowed them to escape from the block and make a living in the music game; as Nipsey retells it, “I told my n*ggas that it’s time to put the rocks down / we opened studios up, shut the spots down / now every n*gga on my block is getting’ gwop now.” Complete with the soulfully gritty hook vocals of J Blacc, this street-certified cut should whet fans’ appetites for the Slauson Boyz’ There Goes The Neighborhood (Vol. 1) mixtape, set to drop on July 19.
