Throwback December: Kickin’ It

Once again, BIG shoutout to all the LIFESTYLE fam for the love since Day 1 back in August. This month, we’re pushin through the end of 2011 with Throwback December: A Retrospective — we’re takin it back to the good ol days, the foundation of the LIFESTYLE. For the next few weeks, we’ll be rediscovering a number of tracks from the P. Muller and Sneaky V archives; The Musical Revolution era, circa 2002-2007. As far back as when we were 14 year old youngsters, we put in countless hours creating music in our makeshift studio, usually taking breaks only for eating globally at local joints, skateboarding at “the Ledge,” and punching the clock at Monterey Market grocery store around the way, with the occasional *extracurriculars. Be on the lookout for original recordings, along with remastered versions, and some 2011 remixes. To kick off this series, we take a look at our old-school sound from “Kickin’ It”… Throw it back! Stay tuned on this RR storytelling session til we hit the new year!

2004.

I slide through a verse/ Smooth like a curse/ Quenches my thirst/ But then I go berserk on ya/ Take joy to destroy ya/ I’ll coy ya/ Don’t know if I’m serious I’ll toy ya

The back room/guest room/laundry room of Peter’s parents’ house in North Berkeley. The setup was basic; what we had was one Boss BR 532 4 track recorder, one Miracle Piano Teaching System (A Midi keyboard with 8 sounds released in 1990. courtesy of Peter’s grandmother), one Fender Stratocaster that we used as a bass using the 4 track recorder’s “bass” setting, and our lyrics:

Kickin It (2004 Original)

Kickin It (2011 Remaster)

P.Muller and Sneaky V/ Hitting it like Chucky D/ P.Muller and Sneaky V/ You can’t touch me

So I went out bombing and the night was fine/ Straight chilling the wine was divine/ Was a crime/ The way we lied/ And made you cry/ But that’s how we do it/ That’s how we do it on the Northside/ Me and Voko going loco/ Chillin with the folk yo/ No smoke yo/ Just yay the Bay/ Where people play/ Hit it every night and everyday

P.Muller and Sneaky V/ Hitting it like Chucky D/ P.Muller and Sneaky V/ You can’t touch me

So!

It’s the end of the week/ Straight 3:15/ Walkin home trippin off e can’t you see/ Almost wanna call your girl up on the phone/ Not bouta be alone now that we’re grown/ Life is perfect/ Gonna make a purchase/ I’ll make you worthless/ I make em surgically remove your brain/ End your pain of being fake and lame/ cuz

P.Muller and Sneaky V/ Hitting it like Chucky D/ P.Muller and Sneaky V/ You can’t touch me

So The Musical Revolution’s taken to the top/ B’s getting popped/ You know we never stop I electrocute/ End disputes with the flows that I hit in my burgundy suit/ I’m a balloon filled up with tunes/ Got the beat V cuz its time to groove/ Lose yourself I’ll make you lose your health/ When I come to your house with my leather belt

P.Muller and Sneaky V/ Hitting it like Chucky D/ P.Muller and Sneaky V/ You can’t touch me

Who rocks the shit/ 06

Who hits your mom/ 06

Who got the niche/ 06

Whose hecka bomb/ North Berkeley

I slide through a verse/ Smooth like a curse/ Quenches my thirst/ But then I go berserk on ya/ Take joy to destroy ya/ I’ll coy ya/ Don’t know if I’m serious I’ll toy ya

P.Muller and Sneaky V/ Hitting it like Chucky D/ P.Muller and Sneaky V/ You can’t touch me

One more time said

P.Muller and Sneaky V/ Hitting it like Chucky D/ P.Muller and Sneaky V/ You can’t touch me

2004
