Keep It Funkin by XL Middleton

Keep It Funkin by XL Middleton

Rapper XL Middleton released the music video for his single “Keep It Funkin.” He delivers a modern take on the sound of 1990′s g-funk, the sound perfected by producers such as Dr. Dre, Warren G, DJ Quik, and Battlecat. Instead of resorting to outdated “gangsta” lyrical cliches, XL Middleton keeps the focus on the relentless funk of the instrumental, allowing a generous peppering of vocoder (performed by himself) to serve as the only vocals heard on the track. Complementing the music are visuals of thee funky robots. This single release is designed to whet the appetites of modern funksters as XL prepares a full length EP, to be released 2014.

Lyrics to Celebrate by EQ

Verse 1

I remember that first day just sittin’ in my dorm
Feelin’ so grown, all on my own
Mister San Jose, welcome to my new home
Every damn day gettin’ faded and too blown

Life of a college man every single dollar spent
Waking up at 1 like f*ck, we ain’t go to class
I know ain’t gotta tell me it’s bad
But I still got C’s and some B’s, toast to that

Tis’ the season for underachieving
Everyday a weekend, the bitches I was D ing
D.C.ing (Dining Commons) all you can eating
Like damn mothaf*cka’ swear I’m never leaving

Back then felt like life was perfect
And for all of this tuition the memories worth it
Cause I could give a f*ck about a bachelor’s
I’m a just miss being big man on campus

Hook 1

Put ya drinks up and celebrate
40 ounces deep then we elevate
Put ya drinks up and celebrate
Everybody know my name I ain’t even graduate

F*ck a god damn midterm
80 ounces deep we gettin’ sh*t swerved
Put ya drinks up and celebrate
Look me in the eyes can’t you tell its fate

Verse 2

Fast forward 5 years time flies
Sittin’ screen staring 40 racks 9-5
Money that I never seen paid for tired eyes
Would be happiness for others but I feel like I died

But for now ill be content
Friday is Friday no more Thursday weekend
Guess that 2 bills a day does recoup my losses
And it ain’t so bad with all these baddies at the office

Vietnamese chick, she say I sound so mi dang (means black in vietnamese)
I say how bout I take you downtown and T Pain
Buy you a drank she like you know I’m 28
I say it’s all good I see what I like and I take

Precocious, I mean I’m only 22
Draped in Supreme meetin’ in boardrooms
While I day dream of this college tour comin’ soon
Everybody know ill blow so when I do it won’t be news

Hook 2

Put ya drinks up and celebrate
40 ounces deep than we elevate
Put ya drinks up and celebrate
Working hard all week now it’s time to play

F*ck a god damn cubicle
80 ounces deep like a deal was closed
Put ya drinks up and celebrate
Look me in the eyes can’t you tell it’s fate

See Ya Soon
