dude been consistent for years, and he didn't begin to decline, he got better. who else has done that? who dropped a solid first album and his best was yet to come? I cant think of anybody from any region. to me RX lord was a forgettable album, but RX Lord 2 has hella good songs on it. IMO definitely one of the top from the bay, easy.

I was never on the Wax train and really didn’t hear much of his music. It’s been hard to go back 15 years and shit and try to judge and say he’s an all time great. But he definitely has talent no lie there and threads like these are good for our genre. Love diggin up old albums and songs and putting it into my catalog

I own most of his catalog starting with his first album. Having said that, Pulling Strings is his best album. At first I didn't like it, but I kept listening, and it is a classic and I don't throw around the word classic a lot either.

I may have to check out pulling strings. I’ve never listened to that album but I’ve seen that many people seem to like it.

People dont like the autotune but I think it makes this song that much better. One reason I fuck with Wax's music because he actually rapping about shit. Just peep this track and read the lyrics.


[Intro]
You think you know who your friends is
You gon' see who your friends are
Fall off, go broke boy
Haha you'll see

[Verse 1]
I saw that C-O with that mail keep on walkin' by my cell
Every day for several years until I thought 'Damn, this is hell'
Finally knew that shit was real when I went to call up my mom and all she could do when I did was just complain about the bail
I saw people younger than me doing less and they get killed
People said they had it comin', called it destiny for real
I just say that shit I saw, I hope they rest in peace for real
What the fuck have I become learnin' these lessons in the field?
Thought I had a down ass bitch once, she ain't even wait like six months
I ain't even get my sentence yet, she was pregnant by the opp, like six months
Thought I had a down ass homeboy til I saw he got to go home boy
Did the shit that fucked me up, I ain't never felt so alone boy
Everyone around when a blunt get lit, disappear quick when there's funk and shit
Sucka ain't wanna go ride on him, but he turn around and go punk his bitch
Them ain't your friends, don't kid yourself, have that company, need to rid yourself
When they got a problem they come to you, but you can't never hit them for help

[Chorus]
Pulled up on that bus and seen them gates open for us
Before the hate go on to trust I was alone
Came up on that block where they gon' race you, clear your knock
Man it won't even take your lock I was alone
Don't know what she thought it was, played with A-Ks, bought her drugs
Those things make me hard to love so I'm alone
I'm about to roll this weed up, kick my shoes off and my feet up
Please don't reach for shit from me I smoke alone

[Verse 2]
Boy, they made your partners police, catch em with the chopper
Bet they tell em that they got the shit from you
Just in case it got some bodies in the staircase they gon' probably
Paint you out to be John Gotti then you're through
Used to think they were your dogs
Introduced you through a knock and it turned out to be the laws
You went to the pen someone forgot to feed your dogs
Christmas came and went no one accepted any calls
Everybody know somebody doin' time in prison
But don't take the time to write, the time to show how much you miss 'em
It's so easy to forget, it's so hard to pay attention
To somebody out of sight, when they talk it's hard to listen
Which is hardly out of spite, use a knife to carve the tension
There's some parts about this life don't seem right for me to mention
As an artist with a mic I just write the shit I'm feelin'
Put my heart into this fight, but now basically I'm chillin'

[Chorus]
Pulled up on that bus and seen them gates open for us
Before the hate go on to trust I was alone
Came up on that block where they gon' race you, clear your knock
Man it won't even take your lock I was alone

He's an East CoCo rapper. That means he'll never fully get the credit he deserves. Something about Pittsburg's and Antioch's contributions to Bay Area Hip Hop always are overlooked. Before death, The Jacka was honestly pretty slept on. And he only passively repped Pittsburg. People out there need to rep where they're from to the same degree people from Oakland or Vallejo do. It'll help.
