2011 has been a truly dismal year for the studio rap album with major artists and rising stars alike dropping disappointment after disappointment. As usual, the best rap music is happening outside of the label system with less polished, homegrown efforts still being distributed through hand burnt bootlegs (yes, internet, they still exist in the physical) and, more commonly, for free through online depots like Datpiff and Livemixtapes. Here’s the essential five mixtapes of 2011 that are guaranteed to provide a better listen than Tha Carter IV or Watch the Throne.
1. Waka Flocka Flame, Duflocka Rant
Opening with the most potent and to the point opening verse of the year – “Brother dead, daddy dead, auntie got HIV / lord can you please take this rage out of me?” – Duflocka Rant finds much maligned Atlanta trap rapper continuing to refine his singularly cathartic brand of energy music.

2. Meek Mill, Dreamchasers
Meek Mill’s crossover from Philly favorite to national hitmaker wasn’t exactly on his own terms. He restrained his nasally, aggressive, machine-gun flow for the Rick Ross-dominated collaborative hits “I’m A Boss” and “Tupac Back.” But his own Dreamchasers tape reveals him as a classicist wrapped in a new school delivery, equally adept at scoring house parties and weaving gangsta narratives in the Biggie mold. [Download here.]
3. Lil B, Bitch Mob Respect the Bitch Vol. 1
The happiest (and most divisive) rapper of 2010 was struck by an unexpected bout of seriousness this year, soapboxing sociopolitically in a series of increasingly insular and rambling full lengths. It was only Bitch Mob that briefly revived — and amplified — the bizarre freeform energy of his early work, finding him bouncing gleefully over Memphis-inspired pre-crunk and lobbing unforgettable non-sequiturs like “I got ten felonies / bitch I’m Bill Bellamy.” [Download here.]
4. French Montana & Coke Boys, Coke Boys 2
The Moroccan born, Bronx bred French Montana continues to quietly reign over New York with sedate and half-sung rap flows. He’s backed here by the slightly more lively Coke Boys collective but the tape thrives on the strength of its moody boom-bap beats, be they laced by in-house producer Harry Fraud or jacked from the (sadly) forgotten minor hits by the likes of Nine and Nonchalant. [Listen here.]
5. TKO Capone, Tropical Swaggin Duh
Finding the midpoint between the new breed of swag rappers and the old guard fun of mid-’00 Southern rappers, TKO Capone’s hashtag ready Tropical Swaggin Duh somehow flew under the radar. On it, the Tulsan rapped circles of goofy punchlines around Harry Potter samples in a tightly penned Chamillionaire-esque patter. [Download here.]

Main Attrakionz Are The Best Rappers in The Bay Right Now
That may seem like a bold statement, but I stand behind it wholeheartedly and there is no doubt in my mind that Main Attrakionz have been making the best rap music in the Bay Area all year long.
The weird thing about it is that it seems like everyone BUT the Bay Area is following them. As indie music magazines like Spin, The Fader, and Pitchfork have been writing glowing reviews about their music, it seems like the majority Bay Area rap fans and sites have been completely silent, busy complaining about how no artists in the Bay get national attention. What gives?
A little over a year ago I made a mixtape for my site titled The Best of Main Attrakionz and it got a good deal of attention, but listening to it today I can honestly say it’s not that good when compared to Main Attrakionz musical output these past 12 months. When I first wrote about Main Attrakionz about a year ago I stated that the beats were the central figure in their music and that the actual rapping often fell to the background. That is no longer the case, the production has remained amazing, but the duo, comprised of MondreM.A.N. and Squadda Bambino of Oakland, California, have taken their lyrical talent to the next level this year and now display a lyrical maturity that is absolutely stunning considering their age (19 or 20 years old). I also wrote back then that “it sounds like they haven’t completely clicked with the unique sound that they’re developing,” but I’m here to tell you today, one year later, that they have absolutely fully developed a style that is completely unique and beautiful.
Main Attrakionz have pulled themselves from relative obscurity to the Bay Area’s great hope in less than a year’s time, which is pretty amazing. Go on DatPiff and look at some of their earlier mixtapes, they have stuff on there from 2009 that has less than 100 downloads, while their newest mixtape seems to be getting write ups in every indie music magazine and has over 80k hits from a Google search.
What has happened in such a short time? The pair, Squadda B and Mondre, have done something that it seems most rappers are incapable of; IMPROVED.
And the amount they have improved in such a short period of time is pretty incredible too. Listening to their earlier works one can hear the duo trying out different sounds and seeking to find what works for them and what they have finally landed on is something that is entirely their own. What first set them apart was the original production of their own creation as well as recruited from relatively unknown producers. Their signature sound has been labeled “Cloud Rap” and generally revolves around vocal samples chopped up and distorted beyond recognition at the forefront of the beat and the rest of the music creating a spacy, laid-back, and psychedelic atmosphere. It’s entirely unique, but the two cannot really be pigeonholed into that style because a large portion of their music works outside of that description.
Maybe people in the Bay Area are sleeping on Main Attrakionz so much because they lump them in with the weird young-people-music coming out right now that they hate. The way I see it a distinct division has developed in Bay Area rap music in the last couple years between the more traditional group of artists influenced by rappers like E-40, Mac Dre, Andre Nickatina, etc. and this new weird group that has emerged comprised of artists such as Lil B, Kreayshawn, Young L, Bobby Brackins, etc. that is receiving tons of hype right now. What this new group is bringing to the table, that everybody over 25 seems to hate and everyone under 25 seems to love, is some truly innovative and original music that sacrifices a lot of technical proficiency for creativity. In other words this new generation of Bay Area rappers have amazing beats that sound fresh and original, but their rap lyrics are often significantly lacking/can be pretty dumb at times.
What Main Attrakionz represents, at least to me, is a bridge between the old-school style of Bay Area rap and the new. Their beats are unlike anything else out there, coming from producers who have probably never made a rap song before in their life, but as their production has gotten more and more experimental the duo’s raps have gotten more and more focused. It’s the best of both worlds; you get all the new interesting beats coming from the Bay without anybody rapping over them about hoes on their dick because they look like Dr. Phil or swag coming out of their ovaries.
Mondre and Squadda B’s raps are genuinely endearing too, a real sense of honesty is conveyed in their rhymes without ever coming across as soft. They don’t pretend to have a lot of guap/hoes/cars/ice, but instead they rap about who they are; two young dudes who grew up in a shitty neighborhood who are just trying to find their place in the world. Topics such as everyday struggles are something any fan of Bay Area rap should find familiar. Their music connects with the listener on an emotional level and the overall experience of their music is real engaging to the listener.
To summarize, Main Attrakionz are the future of the Bay, get on board or get left the fuck behind.
Here’s a mixtape of their best songs so far, it’s in chronological order so you can hear the musical progression they have gone through in the last year or two. If Main Attrakionz continue at this rate then this mix will be obsolete in a year, just as the one I made last year is now:
1.) Main Attrakionz “Legion of Doom”
2.) Main Attrakionz “Greenzone”
3.) Main Attrakionz “Illest Alive”
4.) MondreM.A.N. “A Man’s Life
5.) Main Attrakionz “Still The Legion”
6.) Main Attrakionz “Last Night Saga Part B”
7.) Main Attrakionz “Young As Fuck”
8.) Squadda B “Conversations”

12.) Main Attrakionz ft. Danny Brown “Cloud Skatin’”
13.) Main Attrakionz ft. Sortahuman “Stoner Gang”
14.) Main Attrakionz “Who Am I”

20.) MondreM.A.N. “Still N Da Hood”
21.) Main Attrakionz ft. Shady Blaze “All In Your Hands”

Bay Area Graffiti ‘80s—‘90s: Early Bombing is the product of a new exciting collaboration by SFaustina and Jocelyn Superstar. The two have authored a 208 page A-Z index hardcover book of the most prolific bombers of the ‘80s—‘90s, which is published by Mark Batty Publishers and includes interviews and photographs with such San Francisco Bay Area graffiti greats as Bigfoot, Buter, Ceaver, Cycle, Cuba, Eskimo/Moz, Fate/Venem, Geso, Giant, Jocelyn Superstar, Juice, Kept/Red, Kr, Log, Mize, Mes, Mq, Mr. Left, Pesk/Fword, Pez, Puzl, Renos, Safari, Skert, Spie, Teacher/Gift, UB40, Veks, Vegan, Ver, and Wart. Many other big name graffiti artists are featured in the book as well with multiple page photo spreads. Just a few of these include Amaze, Benet, Meta, Reminisce, Revok, Twist, and a ten-page section for Tie/Seo containing interviews with a number of his friends. Also integrated into the book is a six-page girls section, which celebrates the women of Bay Area graffiti and their unique styles. Bay Area Graffiti ‘80s—‘90s: Early Bombing is a different kind of book than has ever been written before and its viewpoint is highly personal because both authors, a male and a female, have together brought over 40 years of graffiti experience to the plate. The result is a winning combination.
Bay Area Graffiti ’80–’90: Early Bombing
By SFaustina & Jocelyn Superstar
Graffiti & Street Art, Photography
Hello, my name is Thomas of 100 Grand on My Wrist, Yeah Life Sucks. People often write about and discuss what would happen if a significant historical figure were somehow brought to present day. What would they think of modern society? What political view would they take and what solutions would they develop to solve the world’s problems?
Honestly, I think any historical figure from more than 150 years ago would probably be too busy being confused by cars and the internet to wrap their head around modern social issues. Being overwhelmed by these changes would cause these men to inevitably turn to music to soothe them and that’s when they would discover Bay Area rap and fall in love with it. But which rappers and songs would tickle their fancy? Wonder no more, I have created a mixtape for that:
1.) Andrew Jackson- AP.9 “The Grinch”
Andrew Jackson was a straight killer and kind of crazy. As president he would get in brawls and duels and personally threaten to kill people. Andrew Jackson definitely killed a lot of fools too, he even let one guy shoot him first in a duel before killing the guy. He did not fuck around. When someone tried to assassinate Jackson and the guns misfired, Andrew Jackson proceeded to beat the man close to death with his cane. He got shot numerous times and served his presidency with two bullets lodged in his body. If Jackson were here today he’d probably end up in jail for a long time because that shit does not fly in modern society. He’d be bumping some grimey mob music until he got locked up though.
2.) George Washington- San Quinn “Wit Da Shit”
You may know George Washington as one of our nation’s founding fathers, but what he really was above all else was hard as fuck. He lead the U.S. military into numerous battles and as general he was right there on the front lines. In the French and Indian War he got two horses shot from under him and four bullets to the chest. He also caught numerous diseases and infections such as pneumonia and malaria five times. These things would have killed just about anyone else at the time, but he always pulled through like a G. Simply put, he was with the shit and he would bump this song as he drove around mean mugging everyone with his wood teeth.
3.) William Sherman- King Freako ft. Rydah J. Klyde & American Syko “War Times”
When people think about the American Civil War they usually think about Abraham Lincoln, Ulysses Grant and Robert E. Lee, but not William Sherman, which is unfortunate. He was a General for the Union army and played a key role in ending the Civil War. He started the war policy of “Total War,” in which he wanted to make sure every person in the South felt the repercussions of war. In Sherman’s March to Sea he basically went around destroying the South, including burning down South Carolina’s capital and the war ended soon after. He was also the person to coin the phrase “war is hell.” During the Battle of Shiloh, Sherman got three horses shot from under him and got shot himself twice, but pulled through like a sav. If he were here today he would probably learn how to deep sea dive and then go re-kill Osama Bin Laden before flying over to North Korea to knock the taste out of Kim Jong Il’s mouth.
4.) Louis Pasteur- C-Bo “Birds in the Kitchen”
You may know Louis Pasteur as the father of modern biochemistry and discoverer of the germ theory but forget all that, let’s be honest, with all the test tubes and chemistry experiments that he was working on he was probably just cooking up drugs half the time. I’m no historian, but I’m pretty sure he had a meth lab going on too. If he were to come into modern times he would be stoked about the use of baking soda in cooking up crack and such and would probably try to make a quick buck synthesizing meth from over-the-counter shit. “Birds in the Kitchen” would be his personal anthem as he got to work.
5.) Thomas Jefferson- Stunnaman “Don’t Put the Weed Out”
Thomas Jefferson; Founding Father, Ambassador, U.S. President, author of the Declaration of Independence and stoner. It’s true, dude liked to smoke weed a lot. He grew weed on his plantation, but it was real poor quality and mostly was used as hemp, so he probably got a harsh buzz off it. Fast forward 200 years and Jefferson would want to go to the place that has the best weed in the country: Northern California. I imagine Jefferson would also want to duck out away from all his illegitimate descendants in Virginia, so he’d go across the country to smoke dop and listen to rap.
6.) Friedrich Nietzsche- Rydah J. Klyde “Rated R (Theme Music)”
Friedrich Nietzsche was a 19th century philosopher who spent all day thinking about real dark shit, he reached the conclusion that human existence is meaningless and then eventually went crazy. Here is a quote by him, “and when you gaze long into an abyss, the abyss also gazes into you.” No one really would be able to connect with Nietzsche and he would continue to be angry and depressed in modern times until he discovered his modern kindred spirit, Rydah J. Klyde. Rydah is one of the darkest rapper out there, so the two of them would probably kick it and discuss how much they hate life together.
7.) The Donner Party- Brotha Lynch Hung ft. X-Raided “Return of Da Baby Killa”
If the Donner Party were around today I think people would clown on them pretty hard, like “haha you guys suck at living in the wilderness, you had to eat your own people to survive. Suckers!” I imagine this would make the Donner Party feel pretty bad about themselves and they would seek solace in music. Then when they discover that there is a rapper out there who almost exclusively raps about eating people and they would be elated. “See! Other people do it too guys! Get off our case.” Then they would travel to Sacramento to find Brotha Lynch to tell him how his music has brought them comfort and end up eating the rest of each other when they become depressed by the shittiness that is Sacramento.
8.) Joseph Stalin- J-Stalin “Lyrical Excercise”
If Joseph Stalin were resurrected today he would probably be pretty bummed out about communism being a complete failure and the collapse of the USSR and America’s firm position as the most powerful country in the world. To comfort him someone could be like, “hey bro, sorry to hear about things not panning out like you had hoped, but I’ve got some news that I think is going to cheer you up…there is a rapper who named himself after you!” Then I imagine a glimmer of hope would twinkle in Stalin’s eye and he would spend the rest of the day grooming his fine mustache as he bumped J-Stalin.
9.) Benjamin Franklin- Too Short ft. Earl Hayes “I’m a Pimp”
Ben Franklin was a straight player back in his day. He had at least one illegitimate child (probably more) and when he was serving as a U.S. diplomat in France he apparently cleaned up with the females. Even as an old dude he still got it popping on the regular. We can pretend that Ben Franklin would bear down and really try and work out a solution to the budget deficit if he were here today, but let’s be honest, women are so much hotter now than back in the 1700s, so he’d probably spend all his time chasing tail. He’d be stoked about being on the 100 dollar bill too.
10.) Sigmund Freud- Messy Marv “Playin’ Wit My Nose”
Sigmund Freud is the father of psychoanalysis and had all sorts of weird ideas about people’s minds. He also did a ton of coke back in his day. Back in those days it was much more acceptable and cocaine was being put in all sorts of home remedies that you could buy at the local pharmacy. If Freud were alive today he’d probably roll over to Walgreens hoping to score an eight ball of coke and be bummed out when all he can find is Aspirin. As taboo as it has become to use cocaine these days, Mess continues to brag about it and I imagine him and Freud would do lines together and then high five.
11.) Otto Von Bismark- Cutthoat Committe “Cuddie Roc Ugh”
Otto Von Bismarck often gets forgotten, which is too bad because dude really handled shit back in his day. Peep this quote, “the great questions of the day will not be decided by speeches and resolutions…but by blood and iron.” Shit is real. If he were around today he’d get instant respect for his tight helmet and baller moustache. The “Iron Chancellor” would rock out to some ultra hard mob jams for sure.
12.) Henry Ford- Andre Nickatina & Equipto ft. Shag Nasty “Da Whip”
After crying real tears over the fact that his company had produced such pieces of crap as the Festiva and Pinto, Henry Ford would start listening to music that celebrates the automobile that he helped bring into mass production. And everybody knows that nobody does music about their rides better than Bay Area rappers, hell one could even make an entire mixtape of songs by Bay Area rappers about their cars.
13.) Jesus Christ- Lil B “Look Like Jesus”
I’m not sure if Jesus would be upset by Lil B rapping “hoes on my dick cuz I look Jesus” and shooting the video for the song in a church as he raps about receiving fellatio from women or maybe he would just accept Based God as one of his father’s children. But then Jesus might stumble upon Lil B’s “I’m God” and I would imagine such claims might bother Jesus a bit. Regardless, I’m pretty sure Jesus would listen to rap music. I think he would appreciate Christian Rock too, but be like “guys, it’s really okay to sing about other things besides me, please.”
14.) Karl Marx- Yukmouth ft. Devin The Dude “Star in The Sky”
Whether they know it or not, most rappers are socialists. The urban ghettos they grew up in are the worst side effects of capitalist free markets. The violence they grew up in can be related to the social tensions created by the economic inequality in the U.S. But I’m not sure if Marx were here today he’d be like “oh man I was way off, wasn’t I? Sorry about communism guys!” or if he’d still be like “the proletarian revolution time is now!” If he decided to keep pushing Marxism I imagine he’d start listening to music that best describes the harsh worlds created by the U.S.’s economic disparity.
15.) John D. Rockefeller- Andre Nickatina & The Jacka “Money Shark”
Rockefeller was really on some next level shit. He was worth billions of dollars back in his day and that was when you could buy a car for a couple grand at most. He put money over everything and all the monopoly laws in place today are because of him. Hmmm, is there any sort of musical genre in modern society that would fit his greedy attitude?…Rockefeller would be bumping some raps about getting rich for sure as he cruised through in his Lamborghini with custom iced out Asanti rims.
16.) William Shakespeare- E-40 “The Art of Story Tellin’”
William Shakespeare was a master of words and he no doubt would be smitten with rap music. Shakespeare also invented all sorts of words in use today such as “zany,” “majestic” and, wait for it…”swagger.” Who else invents all sorts of words? 40 Water! I imagine Shakespeare would be delighted by E-40′s raps and his invention of nonsense phrases with every album.

You know that annoying guy at the gym who grunts loudly towards the end of every set, but has the music in his headphones on blast so he is not self-aware at all. I am totally that guy!
Hi my name is Thomas, I run a little blog about Bay Area rap in a dark corner of the internet that goes by the name of 100 Grand on My Wrist, Yeah Life Sucks. I was asked to contribute some posts over here and jumped at the chance because Bloodwars is a pretty unfuckwithable name for a website/magazine.
Anyways, if you go the gym at all like I do you know that you’ve got to have the right jams when you are lifting heavy things in order to get in the right state of mind. I’d like to make the argument that there is no better music to lift to than Bay Area Rap. Think about it for a second, what other music are you going to listen to at the gym?
East Coast Rap?- Have fun trying to stay awake as the boring-as-fuck beats play like a nighttime lullaby in your ears.
Death Metal?-Guys who actively listen to death metal will never be able to get a woman to touch their penis, it’s science.
Techno?-C’mon bro don’t make me explain this one to you.
So there you have it, Bay Area slaps are the way to go. But what songs? Don’t even sweat it, I put a little something together for you, something I’d like to call the ‘Soundtrack to Get Awesome To in the Gym.’© Take a journey with me:
1.) Mac Dre & Andre Nickatina “U Beezy”
Alright so you are walking into the weight room, you’ve got this uptempo jam blaring in your ears and you are feeling pretty pumped up. You slyly try to check out all the females on the elliptical machines and look at all the guys that look smaller than you and whisper ‘pussies’ under your breath.
“IS ANYONE USING THIS SQUAT RACK?” you yell at the guys next to it, refusing to take off your headphones. You are pretty sure they said no, so you get at it.
2.) Rude Boyz “Fuck You”
You are squatting to depth now with a shitload of weight on your shoulders as the Rude Boyz are yelling ‘FUCK YOU’ over the wall-of-sound beat dominated by roaring horns. Hell Yeah!
3.) Boss Hogg, B-Luv, Mac Dre & Husalah
Nothing like a song that openly beat jacks Clipse’s “Grindin’” to get you pumped. As Mac Dre raps “Touch more bread than salami” you realize who shitty it is to be broke right now and you push hard on your last rep. As the song ends with Boss Hogg yelling “suck dick with piss in it.” you know that this is going to be a workout like none other.
4.) Messy Slick “Diego To Da Bay”
Messy Marv and Mitchy Slick are spitting some grimey West Coast gangster raps in your ear as you are squatting. In between your sets you look at the other guys squatting and scoff at their form. “YOU’RE NOT EVEN SQUATTING TO PARALLEL” you yell at the young man next to you and he looks back at you with a mixture of fear and confusion.
5.) J-Stalin “U Broke”
Alright onto push press now, time to have the feeling of tons of weight above your head. As Stalin reminds you of the fact that you are in fact broke once again and he is not, you get angrier and start pushing those 45′s above your head like they’re made of straw.
6.) Taj-He-Spitz ft. Lee Majors & Relly Rell “Rambo”
Songs about shooting people are the ultimate pump-up songs and this one is no exception. You pretend like you are Rambo-era Sylvester Stallone as you lift even though you’re physique more closely resembles Frank Stallone.
You think about how tight it would be if a guy (who was smaller than you of course) tried to start some shit with you right now. Man you would shatter his jaw like your dreams of becoming a doctor did when you got a D+ in Organic Chemistry.
7.) Yukmouth “Cocka Roaches”
Remember to take a pause during your reps when the awkward vocoder part comes in at :27 on this song or else I’m pretty sure you will drop the bar, overpowered by how clumsy the robotic voice sounds in the song.
8.) Philthy Rich ft. HD & Lil Rue “40 Glock User”
This song is about shooting people as well, so it is time to do the manliest exercise of them all, the deadlift.
After you break your deadlift record as you have rappers threatening to shoot you in your eardrum be sure to go up to the nearest guy smaller than you and whisper “you don’t want none” in his ear then walk away. I swear he will never forget that moment for the rest of his life.
9.) Messy Marv “You Lyin’”
As you listen to Mess continuing to accuse himself of lying and then denying it in this song you come to realize something: Messy Marv does a lot of drugs.
10.) Dubee ft. I-Rocc “Round Here”
As this ultra hard mob track kicks in you move over to the dumbbells to do bicep curls until your arms feel like they are going to fall off.
11.) B.I.G. “Super Sco Biz”
As you are pumping out each rep your intense stare accidentally locks in on another guy doing bicep curls as well. Before you know it the two of you are making all-consuming eye contact and neither is willing to look away. ‘Is this what prison is like?’ you think to yourself.
12.) Main Attrakionz “Last Night Saga Part B”
Finally you break eye contact when you realize the guy has a good 20 pounds on you. Main Attrakionz kicks in and the songs positive vibes have you feeling real good right now. A female walks by you and smiles and you smile back. ‘She is totally impressed with my bicep curls,’ you think to yourself.
Be sure to overtrain your biceps so you look awesome like this guy
13.) J-Stalin “Intro”
As the weird violin sample loops play out in this song you decide to get those pecs ripped with some bench press
14.) Lil B “D.O.R.”
The opening lines “fuck the world, I’m God” has you thinking about how relatable Lil B’s insanity is to you. You begin pushing that weight off your chest like it’s nothing, happy that you are not listening to another Lil B song such as “Based in England” because it would probably result in you dropping the bar on your neck.
15.) Beeda Weeda “East Oakland Stunna”
This song comes on and it goes so damn hard you inadvertently let out a Master P style ‘UGGGGGHHHHH’ and everyone looks at you.
16.) Andre Nickatina ft. Paul Wall “Pimp-Hop”
Time to move onto some bent over rows (no homo) to balance out the bench press. You ponder Andre Nickatina’s line “I could tell you about my life; it’s money, weed and ponytails” and think to yourself you do not have enough of any of those in you life…especially ponytails.
17.) The Pack “Wolfpack Party 2010”
This song is not hard at all, so don’t lift any heavy weights to it. You just stretch out a little as you bob your head to the dance beat, getting ready for the next big exercise; pull-ups until you feel like you are going to throw up.
18.) Thug Lordz “Million Dollar Spot”
C-Bo and Yukmouth’s raps about getting illegal money are clamoring in your ears as you pull yourself up and down continuously. ‘Chin-ups are for pussies, real men do pull-ups’ you think to yourself. You ponder the viability of selling shirts with that slogan as you pound out rep after rep.
20.) E-40 “Prepared”
This song kicks in and it has you feeling like doing a drive-by shooting in a spaceship with this futuristic beat. Finishing out your workout you do some reverse sit-ups to maintain those abs of steel. ‘ABS-OF-STEEL’ you mutter with every rep. People stare more.
21.) Young Squad “Bitch”
You see that female again who smiled at you after the bicep curls and smile again…but she does not smile back. ‘Wow, what’s her deal?’ you think to yourself. ‘Pffft whatever, she wasn’t that cute anyways.’ Wrapping up your workout you crank the volume as ‘BITCH’ is yelled repeatedly in your ears.
Fly Gym Honeys
22.) Husalah “Sleep With Da Fishes”
As you walk out you hear a collective sigh of relief from all other gym members upon seeing your exit. Fuck everyone, you will return in 2 days to do it all over again with your ultimate workout mix.
Alright that’s about it, download and flex your biceps real hard as you listen to raps about shooting people and dealing drugs.
