Latest Single From Bitch I’m A Player Mixtape Marks B.I.G. Reunion
DOWNLOAD: Roach Gigz Ft. Lil 4Tay – Wild Child (Prod. By C-Loz)
Last week, Roach Gigz made a vow to his fans: If they helped vote him to victory in mtvU’s Freshman 5 video contest, then he would release a new song from his forthcoming Bitch I’m A Player mixtape. His fans delivered, driving him to victory with over 70% of the vote, and now, standing firm by his word, Roach is releasing the latest track from BIAP with “Wild Child” featuring Lil’ 4Tay, Roach’s longtime friend and collaborator, and daughter of Bay Area rap legend Rappin’ 4-Tay. For true fans of Roach, this song is extra special, and marks a reunion of sorts for Roach and Lil’ 4, who first got their start in music together, forming the group B.I.G. (standing for Bitch I Go) while the two were still in high school, and earning their first local hit with the song “Get It.”
With “Wild Child,” produced by C-Loz, who handles production throughout the mixtape, the song came about after hearing a few bars from one of Lil’ 4’s verses. “The whole inspiration for the song was the hook, it just sounded perfect,” explains Roach. ” I just started remembering little shit I did when I was too young to be doing it, and I turned it into a story. It was only supposed to be a 16 but I just rapped until the story was done, so it ended up being like 40 bars.” Lil 4 delivers equally compelling tales with her own verse, offering a quick reminder of the chemistry the two share. “People haven’t heard a new song from the both us together in a minute,” says Roach, “so I think this is a perfect comeback song, especially since we’ve been rapping together since we were young”
Roach Gigz’ Bitch I’m A Player mixtape, produced by C-Loz and featuring Lil’ B, Husalah, DB The General, and Lil’ 4Tay, will be released this June.
