Bigg Cixx – 69.2 Hoe Day: Track-By-Track Reviews
 
Intro
Kicking things off in a hilarious homage to the radio theme of the album, “Intro” is short and sweet, making sure to get you hyped with a short verse in the styles of 80s and 90s G-Funk… just as Bigg Cixx likes it! But you should already know that by now! It’s not the longest track ever, but it’s oh-so bangin’ and it’s the perfect start to the album! Not much more to say, given its brevity. Strong start.
 
Last Night (feat. Jonny Az)
Continuing the heavy bass and catchy beats of the G-Funk golden era revived, we have Last Night. This is a classic hood banger, great rhymes and an awesome beat with kickass instrumentals. Not to mention it’s as catchy as these kinds of slappers can get! It’s a classic kind of song, about getting wasted, told through heavy bars with an amazing bass that’s sure to be a treat coming out of your car speakers. Someone say bouncing low riders? Cali aesthetic forever strong!
 
Bar Skit
Coming directly off a song about getting wasted on booze, comes a skit track about needing to take a piss at a bar, but getting interrupted by an airhead. Absolutely hilarious stuff. But the question is… IS Bigg Cixx DJ Khaled? I mean, have we ever seen the two in the same room together…?
 
Breakdance (feat. TM-Gotti)
A returning favourite from Bigg Cixx’s recent single, “Breakdance” was so nice they had to play it twice! Of course when a track is this good, it has to feature on an album as well as just the single itself. TM-Gotti’s vocals and their hard-hitting percussive style helps the beat bang, and also complements Bigg Cixx’s flowing vocal style. We can definitely see some real break dancing going on to this track! Play it in a street dancing circle, see what happens. We bet something good. Catchy G-Funk like this usually leads to something good, after all.
 
Jump Inside (feat. Zig Zag, Paw McCoy & ArodzMusic)
Still tuned in? Well here’s a new debut track for 69.2 Hoe Day that is sure to make you vibe! Smooth, funky, and even sexy, this track brings together four amazing artists for a great payoff. The song’s about a whip that seats two, but how about these four? Four heads are better than none, and this is plain to see when each artist spits fire over this chill beat! They all get their chance to shine, and thank goodness for that – all these styles and talents blending together makes for an amazing collab track that’s sure to get stuck in your head… or perhaps jump inside your head.
 
They Don’t Know (feat. Merno D)
Here’s a distinctly 90s-sounding banger. And speaking of 90s, is that a sample from Ocarina Of Time? Throwback, man. This track really shows off the best parts of Bigg Cixx’s flow, his syllables fitting on each beat perfectly. Rap vocals are the best when they become three things at once – vocals, percussion, and instrument. And Bigg Cixx’s flow does just that here, with Merno D putting in amazing work with his catchy singing during the great hook!
 
Paw Calls Cixx (Skit)
The final skit of the album has Paw McCoy of “Jump Inside” calling Bigg Cixx about being lonely and stoned. We’ve all had that one homie call us when they’re high or drunk and life’s getting to them. Mostly at 3 AM, but hey, it happens. It’s relatable comedy, and acts mainly as a transitional pivot between “They Don’t Know”, and the next song, “Lonely”.
 
Lonely (feat. Paw McCoy)
Now we’re getting into the real meat of the album, and it transitions well off the previous skit about Paw being lonely. After all, that’s the title of this track! The melancholy synths at the start are supported by the same catchy heavy bass. This might be a bit of a sad song, but it’s still funky and awesome as ever. Trust nobody – everyone got the potential to be fake, to be a snake. That’s what this song is saying. The hook from “Moonrocks” (a previous song from Bigg Cixx, Young Quicks, and DL Down3r himself) sneaks its way in too, and adds to the catchiness of the whole thing. Sick bars and real talk are what you’ll find in this chill beat.
 
Pay Me (feat. Benny Tesla)
Moody piano and catchy heavy bass are the perfect way to start off a hardcore chill song. And “hardcore chill” is exactly what we got here! Perfect for cruising in the neighbourhood, this track has got a smooth kinda vibe to it, but the lyrics also have bite to them. Bringing it home is the typical catchy beat that you can nod your head to, and the smooth fast flow of Benny Tesla, to make this a unique track you’re certain to love!
 
What You Won’t Do (feat. Dreamxr)
Who likes some tough talk? Everyone when it’s put in music this good. Good old flexing like this don’t come often without it being done poorly and overcompensating, but this is one of the rare cases where it hits hard and not a word of it is wasted. Everything from Dreamxr’s amazing Spanish rapping and quick flow to the chill beat, to the devastating harshness in the lyrics, it’s the perfect flex song. Because really, you could talk about all the ways you could mess up Bigg Cixx and his crew. But everyone knows you’re gonna do none of that, so sit down. Just chill to the blappers.
 
Jump Inside (feat. Beer Bugg & Solja Sick) (Remix)
Did you like “Jump Inside”? What if it was more old skool? That’s what this remix promises! Same great stuff from the original, but more cruisy. The sweet vocal filters and classic stings of the golden age come through and support the same lyrics and performances of the original in a fresh, chill new way! Same song, different feeling and mood. After all, isn’t that what a remix should be? This has a heavy chance to be better than the original due to just how slick and smooth it is… what do you think?
 
Flic My Bic (feat. Spezloaks)
Let’s close out the album with one of the chillest, catchiest tracks on the album! After yet another callback to “Moonrocks”, the track kicks into full gear! Spezloaks and Bigg Cixx and handing out L’s as they light up. Maybe the hot box is so hot because of all this fire from their music! And then a callback to “Smoke The Best”. Really it’s the perfect song to end the album to, it’s like a celebration of everything Bigg Cixx, as well as his crew in general. Don’t take an L, be sure to save the best til last and leave this one until you’ve listened to the other 11!
SO WHAT DID WE THINK OF THE ALBUM OVERALL…?
 
This album is a throwback to the golden era of West Coast hip hop and G Funk. Harking back to the likes of Dr. Dre and other huge names in the classic industry, Bigg Cixx and his crew give the distinctive sound a modern twist. Of course, Bigg Cixx is very familiar with this sound from his previous works, just look at any of them on his Spotify to see what we mean! But this is a natural progression for it, a maturation of the style. Him and his crew really come into their own with this album, and on top of everything, the skits are also hilarious. The production value is astounding, and for such an up-and-coming artist like Bigg Cixx, not to mention the rest of his crew, this effort is noteworthy and serves to make 69.2 Hoe Day all the better for it! This is a quintessential hip hop album that’s flying under the radar, and whether you’re a fan of modern styles or the classic G Funk hits of prior decades, this album isn’t one that you can afford to miss. If you like artists like any of these…
  • Dr. Dre
  • Snoop Dogg
  • Nate Dogg
  • Ice Cube
  • Eazy-E
  • DL Down3r
  • Spez Loaks
  • Beer Bugg
  • Dreamxr
  • Solja Sick
  • Paw McCoy
  • Benny Tesla
  • Merno D
  • ArodzMusic
  • Jonny AZ
  • TM-Gotti

…then you’re bound to fall in love with 69.2 Hoe Day and its cheeky sense of humour, and great sense of funk. We love it whenever Bigg Cixx has another slapper to drop, and this time, he gave us 12. Great value! Get it while it’s as hot as a Cali summer!

Put a bow on it and thank the fans! 2019 was a good year for Down3r’s Spotify!

A big, resounding THANK YOU to three parties in particular – The Blue Pie/DJ Central/Ordior/Planet Blue Pictures Social Media teams, DL Down3r’s loyal fanbase, and of course to the talented Mr. Suga Boom Boom himself, for bringing music of such crisp quality to THIS many people!

BPP - DL Down3r - Spotify Wrapped 2019BPP - DL Down3r - Countries Spotify 2019BPP - DL Down3r - Playtime Spotify 2019

We’ve been loving the 2019 Wrapped campaign for Spotify so far, because it really shows just how far we’ve all come on this musical journey! Not to be sappy or anything but one can definitely feel the love these people have for this music, in the same way that you can feel the love Down3r puts into each and every one of his tracks. In a way, it’s even statistically verifiable now! 544.3k streams. 26,146 hours, or two years. 51.7k listeners. In 74 countries. AND THAT’S JUST ON ONE SPOTIFY ACCOUNT!

What incredible growth in such a short amount of time! It’s dizzying to think about. It probably owes in part to the fanbase cooperating with the Blue Pie team and their viral initiatives, but of course would also have everything to do with just how much people love this talented man and his music! I mean, how could you not? These Spotify stats seem to indicate that most do, and that’s for a good reason – one you’ll see as soon as you hit play on any of these tracks!

And of course who could forget his number one hit? Not us. And with how much we gush about it to you guys, we’re pretty sure you couldn’t forget if you tried, either!

Each one of his tracks is a hit, each one a slapper in their own right, but in particular, Suga Boom Boom continues to draw them in by the thousands. That’s why it’s part of his nickname!

Sometimes you strike gold, which is exactly what happened with the catchy genius and heartfelt lyrics of Suga Boom Boom. Any addict or person who knows an addict will understand it. And we’re sure we can number every single one of the 26K people who have the fanpage liked among those who love the song, for whatever reason matters most to them! And now we can say that the 51.7k listeners on that Spotify account also number among those. The sky’s the limit from here, DL fam. Let’s see where else we can take it in 2020!

Maybe you, the reader, could help us take the page there? All you have to do is click here… and number among the 135,725 monthly listeners that are already there, waiting for you!

Yet another Autism Australia donation!

In March of 2019, our artist sixeightw0lf decided to selflessly donate money to Aspect! Feeling the love from this philanthropy, we at Blue Pie and DJ Central decided to contribute as well. The story repeated itself in August 2019, and sixeightw0lf once again lead the charge. We couldn’t say no that time either. Blue Pie, DJ Central, and sixeightw0lf himself all chipped in once again to try and help out. And now, inspired by the efforts of sixeightw0lf selflessly giving his royalties to charity, we’ve decided to keep the torch going ourselves! We’re starting January 2020 off right by continuing this tradition – Blue Pie and DJ Central are donating once more. And once again, the response they gave warmed our hearts!

As Aspect themselves say, “Autism Spectrum Australia (Aspect) is an Australian not-for-profit provider of services and supports working with people on the autism spectrum and their families. From diagnosis and assessments, early intervention and therapies, to specialised schooling, social groups and employment mentoring; Aspect provides advice and support for the whole family throughout the life stages, from the early years to adulthood.” That quote was sourced from their website, which you can check out for yourself by clicking here.

Damien of Blue Pie is proud to have donated to such a noble cause, and all the Blue Pie and DJC staff would like to extend their thanks and applause to sixeightw0lf for thinking of it first – we’re sure he’s proud of us carrying the torch. The man can produce some bangers that amass thousands of plays on Soundcloud and Spotify, but it’s good to know he can produce compassion of this level as well. We’d like to do our best to follow his example.

Not far from 40K! Down3r’s fans are going crazy!

Last time we had a look at the stats of the Down3r fanpage, it had 20K likes and 26K followers. That was around two months ago, more or less. Now, what’s this sight that greets us when we check on the fanpage‘s stats?!

26,830 people like the fanpage and 37,204 people follow it at the time of writing! What incredible growth in such a short amount of time! It really won’t be long before we reach 30K likes and 40K followers, will it? It’s dizzying to think about. It probably owes in part to the fanbase cooperating with the Blue Pie team and their viral initiatives, but of course would also have everything to do with just how much people love this talented man and his music! I mean, how could you not? His Spotify stats seem to indicate that most do, and that’s for a good reason – one you’ll see as soon as you hit play on any of these tracks!

Tekno finds yet more viral success with Suru!

So if we asked you, “what’s a decent indicator of success for a music video”, would a fair answer be “around 5 million views in 2 months”? You’d probably agree. That’s the reality of the Skeletun music video, which was uploaded to Tekno’s VEVO Youtube channel about two months ago from the time of writing.

 

 
But a challenger appears: this new video isn’t at 5 million just yet. But it HAS gained almost 1 and a half million views in just two weeks! That incredible growth rate may indicate a new video to look to when one mentions “success”!
 

 
And with the single on Spotify already enjoying tens of thousands of plays, that’s also proving to be something Tekno should be proud of!
 

 
Blaisebeatz should also be proud, as Tekno’s producer, as should the video’s director, TG Omori. The view growth rate on that video indicates it’ll skyrocket past even Skeletun soon enough, all going well! Fingers crossed that millions and millions are on the horizon… but with Tekno’s creative talent behind the wheel, surely we can expect big things of various kinds, millions in weeks or not! After all, it’s Tekno we’re talking about…
 
Kelechukwu Augustine, aka Tekno, aka The Golden Boy Of Africa has made a pretty big splash, not that he wasn’t big in the African music scene already, and we’re very glad to be working with such an artist. It helps make the music industry that more vibrant and lively, after all! Tekno has won and been nominated for multiple awards, and for good reason.

  • At the 2014 Nigeria Entertainment Awards, he was nominated for “Best New Act Of The Year”
  • At the 2015 9th Nigeria Music Video Awards, “Duro” won the award for “Best Pop Extra Video”
  • At the 2016 Nigeria Entertainment Awards, “Duro” was nominated for “Hottest Single” and “Best Music Video Of The Year”, and Tekno was nominated for “Afropop Artist of the Year”
  • At the 2016 MTV Africa Music Awards, Tekno won the award for “Best Newe Act”
  • At the 2016 WatsUp TV Africa Music Video Awards, “Pana” was nominated for “African Video of the Year”, “Best African Male Video”, “Best West African Video”, and “Best Afro Pop Video”
  • At the 2017 BET Awards, Tekno was nominated for “Best International Act Africa”

He was also one of the masterminds behind Beyoncé’s “The Lion King: The Gift” album, a tie-in with the recent Disney remake! So as you can see, the clout he brings to the table in his music isn’t just for show, and he has what it takes to back it up! Tekno featuring on Beyoncé’s amazing album is just the tip of the iceberg, and to find out more about the Golden Boy Of Africa, more info is but a click away…

International Badman Killa! Runtown’s EP got the music video it deserved!

Fantastic cinematography, amazing choreography, good music, and an overall chill vibe that get us craving more? Must be a Runtown video.

The flagship track of the “Tradition” EP from Runtown, “Redemption”, got an amazing music video. As the first track you hear on the EP, it’s justified that it got special attention! But the crown jewel of the EP, the song that’s gotten the most viral traction across all platforms from the “Tradition” EP, also got one. That’s right, it’s the one and only “International Badman Killa”, and the music video for that is just as stunning… and the view count for it, even more so! 1,130,904 views at the time of writing!

That, combined with the multiple hundreds of thousands of plays for both the songs on Spotify in the EP, is a testament to Runtown’s success. He’s truly the Soundgod, just as his label says!

What a fantastic way to end 2019 and welcome in the new decade! Runtown has been heavily active throughout the year of 2019, as well as the years prior, and this success combined with his active track record indicate only good things for 2020! The music videos have gotten millions of views alone, and Runtown is already a household name for many. Many new fans of his will never forget the moment they laid eyes on that stylish white tommy gun in the “International Badman Killa” music video! It’s the track that has everyone talking, and these two music videos released in celebration of the EP are the best possible ones they could have chosen to bring to music video form, in our opinion.

Runtown is an artist with an amazing history behind him, and you can read all about that by clicking here! He has become an incredible figure within the music industry to watch. He has earned the respect of his peers through his ability to fuse musical styles whilst staying true to himself. Runtown says: “The biggest and most rewarding risk I’ve ever taken is just doing me and not conforming. I have my own style of music and I have stayed true to it and it has paid off in the long run.” He’s a welcome asset to Ordior and Blue Pie Records, and we’re truly honoured to be involved with an artist of such talent and international recognition!


Runtown is a Sound God Music artist and published for the world by Sound God Music.
