When a record is titled “Go Crazy,” you can expect the story behind it to be a little wild. Surprise, surprise; the genesis of this cut is, in fact, a little bonkers. After a long night in the studio, the HBK Gang‘s brains were more than a little fried. Around 5:00 AM, P-Lo, Jay Ant, and Kuya started to go crazy, yelling at everyone in the studio. The man behind the slapping, crashing beat, Jay Ant, plugged in his flash drive and had HBK (IAMSU! Skip & P-Lo) and guest emcee Dave Steezy each drop some quirky, energetic bars full of clever, eccentric lyrics. And there you have it. Go Crazy is the inaugural song release off HBK’s Gang Forever tape, out later today.
