I FUCKING HATE THIS SONG- my reaction after first listening to “West Coast”. Now, as I watch the video for the 7th time in a row, I realize, that this may be one of my favorite songs released in 2019. What is most polarizing about this song is the fact that not G-Eazy, Blueface, ALLBLACK, or YG remotely use the same cadence or flow and there is no hook, or recurring theme. This sounds like every artist was given the beat, with no lyrics or theme and all created their own song with their 16, sent it in the engineer and he or she pieced it together. Yet, it’s still brilliant! The fact the song was so unpredictable, makes it unique and refreshing. No breaks on the beat or emphasis on any bar with a drop, just a continuous loop instrumental as the four fire off their most vicious vernacular.
Plus the video is top 5 and it’s not 5.
