The Song:

Continuing his successful string of releases, Oakland’s own¬†C-Money returns with a new joint¬†certain to become California’s newest party anthem.¬†“We Say,”¬†premiering via The Smoking Section, is the latest single released from his upcoming Just 4 You EP,¬†available¬†December 9th.¬†“We Say” is a¬†day in the life of Oakland’s¬†unofficial mayor¬†who serves as the Bay Area’s tour guide to a night out on in the West. As The Smoking Section states,¬†“C-Money sounds like the latest ambassador for Oakland, bringing the city and region‚Äôs sound to other locales. Over a beat that even Mustard would envy, C-Money hips us to the norm of his area, with plenty of ‘hellas’ involved.”

Set¬†to the backdrop of¬†booming 808’s and a haunting synth melody, he¬†references all things Cali, from yiking to Mac Dre to puffin’ on Cookies.¬†“I got hella gold/hella whips, got hella hoes/yea they love the kid,” raps C-Money as he takes¬†listeners on a trunk rattling ride through post-hyphy Oakland by keeping¬†things strictly West Coast. ¬†“We Say”¬†follows¬†Complex’s premiere of “Shut It Down,” featuring HBK Gang’s Kool John. Last month, Nah Right¬†debuted his¬†collaboration with Too $hort,Keep Up.” These releases have continued to¬†develop the¬†buzz that C-Money¬†began building with the IAMSU-assisted “Play That” video, which has exceeded 100K views.

“We Say”¬†is from C-Money’s forthcoming¬†Just 4 You¬†EP, which will be released December 9th.

C-Money Background:

With a smooth style and a jovial demeanor, Oakland California rapper,¬†C-Money is easy to get along with.¬†Part of what makes C‚Äôs music stand out¬†is his careful balance of lyricism and style. ‚ÄúI have an East Coast flare with a West Coast style,‚ÄĚ he describes, citing Wu-Tang Clan and Scarface as primary songwriting influences. ‚ÄúWith the punchlines, a lot of artists are just gonna be limited to that. I‚Äôm a melodic artist, who rides that beat‚ÄĒso I get both of those. Plus, my sound is catchy.‚ÄĚ Like Bay rappers are known for, C-Money‚Äôs slapping beats fit the strip club, but between his own catchy choruses, he stuffs the bars with honesty, wisdom, and life‚ÄĒunlike many of today‚Äôs rappers‚ÄĒthings he‚Äôs actually lived. ¬†Look out for C-Money’s debut EP, Just 4 You,¬†featuring¬†Iamsu! and Kool John of HBK Gang and more, available December 9th
