The Malibu artist appeared on Sway in the Morning to discuss the “Bubblin” music video, as well as offer a freestyle. The NxWorries co-member was tasked with rapping over James Brown‘s “Funky Drummer” and, well, he doesn’t disappoint.
Here’s a taste of the freestyle:
“Probably could’ve been a doctor, I’m fond of optometry / My vision was like Martin Luther on ‘the mountain peak’ / Valley lows, I left home for more salary / Smuggled O’s across border patrol, casually / Took notes then took control of it, manually / Hand-to-hand til’ it’s white sands and the canopy / Now follow me / I’m too old to act childishly / But every now and then I park the Beamer in the gallery / Show off the paint for spectators and the faculty / Same ol’ ni**as that said they proud of me / Same ol’ ni**as that probably doubted me.”
Last week .Paak released the song “Bubblin” as well as its music video. He premiered the track on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show on Thursday.
During his interview with Lowe, he talked about the track, and how it came about:
“‘Bubblin’ is just a whole lot of fun. I had the beat from Jhalil Beats and Antman Wonder. Jhalil sent me a pack of beats, you know 50, 60 beats. I loved them all. I was just writing to all these beats and that was one of them that I just loved off top. It sounded like some black 007 action adventure high speed chase type of music. Originally I was trying to get Lil Sims to rap on it first because she was in the studio too. I remember trying to get other people on it, then eventually I just wrote on it. It took me a couple of days. I did it. I started it in L.A. and I finished it in New York. And it was just one of them ones. It gets the energy going, gets the blood going.”
