Today, Guapdad 4000 and !llmind are dropping the second single “She Wanna” from their collaborative album 1176, out on March 19th via PARADISE RISING. Featuring fellow Bay Area native P-Lo, who co-produced the track alongside Mansa, the two rappers are sticking to their musical roots behind a bouncing beat that pays homage to the Ying Yang Twins' iconic 2005 Atlanta classic, "Wait (The Whisper Song)." Speaking about how the song came together, P-Lo says, "Me and guap made this song in about 30 mins, everything just came out and we were pretty much laughing the whole time."   The video for "She Wanna," directed by Chris Simmons, is an absurd, comedic riff on '70's sitcoms, with Guap portraying a scammy patriarch in a suburban home. The track follows Guap's lead single "How Many," which Hypebeast called “an honest look at the Oakland-born artist.”  

Speaking on the album, Guap says:“If !llmind had a power it would be to shapeshift, he can do anything! Something like this comes in handy when you need to tell the full spectrum of your story like I did in this music. I had no idea we would stumble upon something this magical though but I guess I should have known that linking up with my Filipino brother would enhance my super powers! Enjoy it scamily.”   !llmind adds: “Guapdad is literally one of the most talented artists I've ever come across. I know that sounds generic but there really is no better way to describe him. I had such a blast working with him on this project and even though we're from opposite coasts, we are similar in so many ways. He brought the best out of me on this project and made my job easy. The music is crazy!”  

Executive produced by !llmind, 1176 takes a peek behind the curtain as Guapdad narrates his life up to now, touching on everything from his Filipino upbringing to life with his family in Oakland. Developing the ideas he sketched out with his last album, the star-studded Dior Deposits, 1176 centers firmly on Guap telling his own story, with the help of some of his close friends Buddy, P-Lo and Tish Hyman. The result is a more focused body of work that retains Guapdad's signature humor throughout, but also harnesses it as a storytelling device to convey the pain and struggle that lies underneath his experiences. Speaking on Dior Deposits, The New York Times called it "slickly whispered absurdist posturing that’s just this side of sketch comedy,” and Guap's mastery of humor is alive and well on 1176, but his quick wit also gives way to poignant reflections on his life, and his community's story at large.

1176 comes out March 19th via 88rising's sister label PARADISE RISING in partnership with Globe, making Guap and !llmind the first artists to release a full length project through the young label which is dedicated to uplifting artists of Filipino descent.
