WIZ New Track “The Race” from Rolling Papers

March 8, 2011 bonics

Last night at midnight Wiz dropped another song from his Debut Album “Rolling Papers.”  This track is my sh!t!!!  It’s called The Race!  I love this song cause it really tells a great story about where Wiz is right now is now in his career.  One of the greatest things about the album is that is the first released track from PGH own I.D. Labs.  Pittsburgh man!  Shout out to Edan who I have seen grind all these years to get to this point! Congrats to I.D. Labs, EDAN, JERM, and WIZ!  Support this record guys.I can’t wait to perform this song.

Wiz Khalifa The Race Lyrics

[Wiz Khalifa – Verse 1] The World turning, the weed burning
Them haters talking, I keep earning
Know some will say that lifes a bitch
Well I’ma flirtin and f-ck that bitch for the money and Louie V purchases
Old folks jock my car cause they know just what this is
N-ggas felxin’ hard with no bars, they got weak servants
Keep verses, Mortal Kombat
Look at my ring, if I aint ballin’ then what you call that
Nothing but neck and back cause I never left
I did everything right n-gga better yet
Rolling bomb for the n-ggas thats around us
Something like a contractor building from the ground up
Now just
Twist up this weed
Realise that you are in the presence of a G
Don’t f-ck up my paper meaning my cheese
Or the ones I use to roll up my trees
F-ck it, you know what I mean

[Chorus] I’m riding round, smoking, good music aloud
Kinda do my thing, no disrespect to the n-ggas before me
Some smile up in your face but then they don’t on the low
Now I just stunt on my own
Now I just stunt on my own

I’m in a race, and taking the winners place
No foot on the brakes
one the best, homie thats what they call me
It’s lonely at the top, got no company so
Now I just stunt on my own
Now I just stunt on my own

[Wiz Khalifa – Verse 2] See me, when I’m alone, wishing they could f-ck with me
My ex calling my phone, wishing she could stunt with me
But I’m just riding dog, doing a buck fifty
Stunting like Jet Li, boat houses and Jet Ski’s
Thirty on the flight, ice like the Gretsky’s
My dime piece only recognise the best tree’s
Treat ‘em like I don’t need ‘em boy, you best believe
You in her face, I let her breath

From debated on, to waited on
From hated on, to the n-gga they put cake up on
Cause we are, Young Movie stars
Cause we are, Young Movie stars

[Chorus]

(Ooooooh, oooh, ooo-oo-oooooh)
(Ooooooh, oooh, ooo-oo-oooooh)
(Ooooooh, oooh, ooo-oo-oooooh)

[Wiz Khalifa – Verse 3] O-ooo-oh, now I just stunt on my own
Bitches aint say shit to me but now they won’t leave me alone
Used to walk the other way
But now they all come to my home
And they calling my phone, cause my paper was looong
Nothing, they aint singing my song
Get hired up, if they want than I bring them along
We flying up, now you want me to take it all off
Want me to take it all off

Tell a bitch I’ma ball and I’ma buy a new crib for my n-ggas n all
Cause I remember days we’d sit and picture it all
N-gga swear I’d leave or pictured I’d fall
Counting reasons why they hate, your bitch think I’m a star
Cause we are, young, gifted, not to mention out here making muthaf-cking millions
Yeah, I said it, muthaf-cking millions
Got my money up, I’m in the building

[Chorus]

Well another crazy weekend with the gang… I’m actually sitting in my hotel room right now in Vegas waiting for a big day tomorrow!  We are taping for MTV Spring break at the PALMS.  Fuggin right!  Last night we were in Charlotte to do an event at the 935 club for the CIAA.  I never heard of CIAA weekend until this weekend.  Where almost 200,000 people come for to party (amongst other things.)  The CIAA is The Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA), founded in 1912 as the Colored Intercollegiate Athletic Association and is the oldest African-American athletic conference in the nation (read more here http://www.ciaatournament.org/page/ciaa-history.)

Rick Ross, Wale, Green Lantern and more were in attendance.  The club was ridiculously packed.  And what a treat it was to see Wiz perform with Ross and Wale! It was tough for me to get some good pics but i did my best. I’m sure there are great once on the WEB somewhere.  Below are some pics I took.  Make sure as always you check out the PHOTO GALLERY!

Go to 5:30 to see Ross and Wiz

Snoop & Wiz in West VIrginia!

Last night in West Virginia Wiz and Snoop Dogg shared the stage in their first double headlining show with each other!  Hopefully there will be more to come.  Over 10,000 people came to see “The New Cheech and Chong.”  Unfortunately they weren’t able to do songs together but the crowd  enjoyed both flavors.  It amazes me every time I perform with Wiz how much of the fans go crazy!  It’s also so great to see Snoop perform all the classic joints.  I don’t know how he does it.  He’s almost 40.  Smokes like a mad man and doesn’t miss a lyric.  Click the link below to see a huge photo gallery of photos from the show!  Thanks to West Virginia for making it a great night.  I got to Dj at the CELLAR in WV after wards and that was bonkers as well!

OH CANADA!  So a couple weeks ago I went to Toronto and Rocked Home Nightclub!  It was dope to be able to play in a huge city like TORONTO!  While I was there I hooked up with one of Canada’s most respected DJ’s/Producers Skratch Bastid!  http://www.skratchbastid.com/ I think it’s amazing to be able to share the love and enthusiasm of turntablism with others. (especially with one of a country’s best!) Its like a Dj’s Jam session. Shout out to MY DOODS DJ WRISPECT, ISAIAH, ,JAKE and BASTID for making Canada feel like home.

WOW!  Black and Yellow goes double Platinum!  It also is the #1 song on Billboard this week.  Let’s hope Wiz’s follow up single can follow that lead!  I love this joint and I was lucky enough to visit the set of “Roll Up.”  Shot on the Oceanfront Walk, Venice Beach, California.  The amazing Cassie was on set as well as Nipsey Hussle.  I even saw the legendary Lyor Cohen on set.  Please do yourself a favor and look him up if you don’t know.  Looks like another fresh video about to happen for the Wiz!

Super After Bowl Party – Jet Nightclub

Instead of sticking around in Dallas the GANG went to spend Super Bowl Sunday in Las Vegas.  We did a Black and Yellow after part at Jet Nightclub in Mirage Casino and Hotel.  It would have been WAY more super if the Steelers pulled it out.  But at least it was an exciting game.   We (The Gang) watched the game in the Super Hotel suite with Lil’ B and Juicy J.  Needless to say we were screaming at the top of our lungs.  The game ended in disappointment but the night didn’t!  We ended up killing a short performance at the legendary Jet nightclub and even tho the Black and Yellow lost the crowd still went ham over Black and Yellow!  After the performance we popped some bottles and partied Vegas Style!  Shout to the Light Group who brought us in!

WEEK OF FOOLERY!

February 13, 2011 bonics

Alright been a long freaking weak my people!  I mean, not to remind everybody about the butt ass Super bowl weekend, but we been going since that Superbowl Friday!  Seems like so long ago already and let’s face it we want to forget about that weekend anyway.   Let me tell you DALLAS was a mess.  I was looking for a party filled atmosphere but instead we got snow. Lot’s of it.  Enough to shut down the city of Dallas cause apparently they don’t get snow.  They must really not get any snow if you see them throwing sand on ice instead of salt. So needless to say it wasn’t as exciting as it should of been.  The performance though was fun.  It was at club Cirque hosted by Dez Bryant of the Cowboys…  Shout out to my man CARDO!

Here are some pics from the show!

KID@HEART!

The foundation Tees are coming this Valentine’s day! We are celebrating American Heart Month and the beginning of my newly established Bonics’ Heart Beats foundation!

We just sign, sealed, & delivered paperwork with the state! So we are definitely in the baby stages of this. These shirts will be the building blocks to something great!

The proceeds of this will go to a “to be announced event” in the summer promoting Heart Disease Prevention and Awareness.

The name Kid@Heart is inspired by my 18yr cousin Christian James of Philadelphia who will launch the KID@HEART brand this spring.

Thanks to vitaminTHICK for coming with a great design and overall “piece of art” on shirt.

Also follow our official Blogspot which will tell the story of building this thing!  Thanks to Jaime Dougherty who is assisting me in buidling the foundation! Click below for details!

Our (rough)  mission:

To educate young adults on the dangers of heart disease, the need for early detection and the importance of establishing a healthy lifestyle. The foundation will promote the cause through unique methods aimed at adults under forty and will provide financial support to individuals who cannot afford proper care.

Here is the Presss Release for the shirt:
Photobucket

On Thursday, December 2, Brandon “DJ Bonics” Glova was rushed to a Pittsburgh hospital after
experiencing extreme pain and discomfort in his shoulders and chest. Glova had returned home from a
60 city tour as the DJ for emerging hip hop MC Wiz Khalifa just two weeks prior, and despite being only
30 years old, he was having a heart attack.
“I had never experienced such a combination of pain and fear. They called it a heart attack; I call it a
harsh reminder of how sweet life is,” Bonics recalled.

Since recovering from this life-threatening episode, Glova has created the Bonics Heart Beats
Foundation, which will promote heart health and a healthy lifestyle specifically to adults under the age
of 40.
To build some momentum for the Bonics Heart Beats Foundation and further the cause, Glova has
enlisted vitaminTHICK, a street lifestyle fashion company out of Boston, to collaborate on a special
edition t-shirt design. The concept for the shirt, entitled “Kid@Heart,” is inspired by the importance of
remaining youthful in both thoughts and actions, advice by which Glova now lives.

“When we were younger, we would run around and play as if we were invincible,” said Glova. “Too
often as adults our health becomes an excuse to not be active or live a healthy lifestyle, which is
exactly what we are hoping to change. With the vitaminTHICK brand being dedicated to the spirit of
childhood, and the company having ties to Pittsburgh as both of the owners are Carnegie Mellon grads,
I felt that this partnership would be perfectly aligned.”

The shirt design features a proud kid clenching a lunchbox by his waist. His silhouette, which is filled
with an image of the universe, represents the endless possibilities and dreams associated with youth.
The character’s oversized glasses are a playful reference to Glova’s signature style.

Andrew Shedd, vitaminTHICK’s Creative Director, further elaborated on the project, “Fans and culture
junkies alike often perceive talent like Bonics in a limited capacity in comparison to his true depth of
character. Bonics’ experience was a very human one, and the “Kid@Heart” concept captures that
human element with a degree of warmth and sensitivity that really resonated with us. Responding
proactively as he did with the intent to deliver a message that has such a genuine earnestness and
positivity speaks to that depth of character in a way scarcely touted in mainstream media.”

The Bonics and vitaminTHICK “Kid@Heart” collaboration t-shirt will retail for $26 and goes on sale this
Valentine’s Day (2/14). It can be purchased online at www.timebombshop.com, and in stores at
Timebomb and Shop412 in Pittsburgh, and Bodega in Boston. The proceeds will be donated in their
entirety to the Bonics Heart Beats Foundation, and more specifically to supporting community events
this spring, which will promote heart heath awareness and an active lifestyle.
