The Song:

This coming Tuesday, July 17th, A-Wax will release his new album, Everybody Loves Me: Chapter 1. Already, the Pittsburg, California, rapper has released videos for singles "Rapper Blood" and "Yeah Right," and just last week, A-Wax released a monster of a track, "Fly Pelican (Remix)", a song that features French Montana, Styles P. and Chinx Drugz. Today, with the weekend nearly upon us, A-Wax is excited to release the album's latest single, "Willy Wonka".

"Willy Wonka" is the opening song on Everybody Loves Me: Chapter 1, and the track, produced by Cardiak, whose other recent production credits include names like Meek Mill and Young Jeezy, is an up-tempo affair that sets the pace for the project as a whole. For his part, A-Wax lays down what he calls, "a dope boy song, plain and simple," and while the subject matter, for A-Wax's fans, may not come across as deep as they're used to, for Wax, it was a conscious decision to keep things loose. "A lot of my music is deep; it's for the streets," says A-Wax. "With this song I was able to let go a little and have some fun with it, so I want my fans to do the same."

The Background:

A lot of rappers make music about the penitentiary. Few can say that they learned their craft while incarcerated. Having emerged after a lengthy stretch in the prison system during his teenage years, A-Wax turned to rap and came up in the game old-fashioned way, selling CDs hand-to-hand and through Mom & Pop stores across the region. The hard work has paid off -- A-Wax has moved over 200,000 units, independently, no small feat, and the accomplishment eventually led to a deal with Akon's Konvict Muzik label. A-Wax and Akon ultimately went their seperate ways, due to creative differences, and now A-Wax is back on the independent grind, with a new album, Everybody Loves Me: Chapter 1. The album, which includes features from French Montana, Styles P., Mistah FAB, and more, will be released July 17th via Illburn Records.
