With Compton back on the world stage, it’s no surprise that a shared alliance to L.A.’s TDE camp between SmokeyGotBeatz and West Coast Legend MC Eiht would result in a new ode to the hub city.
The New Zealand-born, Los Angeles-based producer presents ‘Big Bad CPT’ as a part of the popular #WestCoastWednesday series, combining sinister West Coast funk with hard drums and a ’90s-inspired string section – a hallmark of SmokeyGotBeatz upcoming project ‘Coke, Cigarettes & Chicken: The Beat Tape.’
“After hearing MC Eiht and Kendrick together on “M.A.D.D City” I knew I wanted to make a record for MC Eiht. ‘Big Bad CPT’ is my version of a classic West Coast Banger for my generation” ~ SmokeyGotBeatz
