DOWNLOAD: Roach Gigz Featuring DB The General – Drugs
Bay Area wild child Roach Gigz is serving up his new single “Drugs.” The track features fellow Bay rapper DB The General, and is the latest track to be released from Roach’s forthcoming Bitch I’m A Player mixtape, now scheduled for a July 20th release.
It’s no secret that Roach Gigz and DB enjoy the occasional high, but “Drugs” isn’t exactly an anthem for substance abuse. With the opening lines, “I’ve popped pills that will make the lion in wizard of oz grow balls/ I probably got holes in my brain the size of cheerios and lose change,” Roach delivers something more than just rhymes. “I was trying to describe that feeling of courage you get when you pop an ecstasy pill, while at the same time warning of the damage that popping pills can have on the brain,” says Roach. “I don’t want to promote drugs, I just wanted to explain my experience with them.”
C-Loz, who produced all the songs on Bitch I’m A Player, provides a beat as heavy as the subject matter – and maybe even more addictive. The beat also serves as a perfect compliment to DB’s nasally, frenetic vocals, as he raps, “I can’t believe I’m still alive… So many drugs up in my system, yeah, I’m hella high.” Along with a super old-school sample of a man repeating the phrase “drugs, smoking, popping drugs,” the track alone will make the listener feel like they got slipped a tab of PCP. “The song kind of feels like you’re on drugs, and I just wanted to make a song that people can party to, on drugs or off them,” says Roach. “Now dance, bitch!”
Fans can also look forward to Roach’s video for recent single, “F A Chorus,” which was shot and directed by Kreayshawn and will be released soon.
