Los Angeles’ Capo Corleone is a multi-talented king of all media. Also known as Waylon Barnes, he is a radio and TV Personality, music industry entrepreneur and a popular West Coast rapper. It is in the latter capacity that he drops his latest single, “Paid.” The track is his second this year with frequent collaborator B. Gullie.
The new song follows “Don’t Play” and is the second single off the duo’s upcoming EP “Hawallywood.” The record is set for a May 29th release date. If the first two singles are any indication, fans are in for a Hip-hop treat. These new tracks have a modern sound but also wear their decade spanning influences on their sleeve.
“Paid” rides on a vintage Roland TR-808 drum machine rhythm. A minor key piano chord progression sets the mood for this melodic rap groove. The song is an ode to the greatest day of the week, payday. The two rappers have a laid back, old school left coast flow that brings to mind 90’s OG’s like Nate Dogg, Snoop and Dr. Dre. Fans of g-funk will easily recognize Capo Corleone’s nod to these legends.
“This one’s dedicated to the hustlers! It’s the feeling you have when you know nothing could break your stride,” says Capo Corleone. The pair’s second masterpiece is a feel-good anthem for the dream chasers and the hard workers who work all week for a Friday paycheck.
You can check out “Paid” on the Deep Indie Beat playlist. The song is available now on Spotify and all other major platforms. To stay updated on all future releases follow Capo Corleone on Instagram.
