Two Bay Area favorites are collaborating on a dope track! Guapdad 4000’s just released She Wanna through the label PARADISE RISING which features P-Lo and co-produced by Mansa. It looks like the track is the next snippet we get before Guap’s full album, 1176 on March 19th. MYX Global is having a premier with a raid train all day on 3/10 with various DJs spinning the track. Check out the time slots above.
The track pays tribute to the classic party track, “Wait (The Whisper Song)” by the Ying Yang Twins. You could say She Wanna is about to be the Bay Area version of the Atlanta staple. Along with the release of the song, Guapdad premiers a music video!
Another surprise we learned is hip-hop mogul Rick Ross has co-signed Guap’s album and the recently released music video for How Many. He goes on to say how dope Guap’s music and visuals have been. The comments are blowing up saying how underrated Guap is and his music is about to take over.
The album 1176 is a tribute to Guap’s roots. The actual number “1176” was the address of the house he lived in when he was younger. Guap and !llmind released How Many last month with a music video that included Tagalog subtitles. If you haven’t checked it out yet, we got you covered!
For more about how the album was created check out what Guapdad 4000 and !llmind said about the process here on MYX Global.
