Red Pill – “My Day” (Prod. By BEWARE)

30 Aug

Red PIll my day beware

In the middle stages of putting together Woodward Ave, I made a beat called “Bandolions” I thought Red Pill would sound perfect on. However, the sample-based track is a bit more upbeat than a lot of his material, so I came up with a concept I thought would bring the best out of him and the beat. The concept was Pill – who is typically a downtrodden rapper – waking up and having the best luck possible, all day. Having covered him from my Smoking Section days, I hit him up, pitched him the concept and beat, and bam….the rest is history.

“My Day” is just an easygoing, head nodding story song that’s hard not to dig. One of my favorites off Woodward Ave. Shoutout Nick Speed for scratching on the hook.

Payroll Giovanni, Royce Da 5’9″ & Chavis Chandler – “Triumphant” (Prod. By BEWARE)

Royce Da 59 Payroll Giovanni Chavis Chandler Triumphant BEWARE

When we started making Woodward Ave, about a year and a half ago, I never would have imagined being able to orchestrate a record like “Triumphant.” Getting features from a 1st Ballot Detroit Hip-Hop Hall Of Famer like Royce Da 5’9″, the illest street rapper in the city in Payroll Giovanni, and a game-changing vocal talent like Chavis Chandler – there’s no way. Well, I was wrong. Did that. Everyone was gracious and receptive of our concept. Relationships were made that will stand a lifetime. Powerful tunes were manifested. Shit, we premiered the song on Fake Shore Drive, a site I’ve read for a decade and the staple of Midwest rap online.

“Triumphant” is an understatement.
