Stats for this track
2012 has been nothing short of successful for the fast-rising independent hip-hop label Man Bites Dog Records, and now, as the year nears its close, the label is excited to introduce the newest member of its roster, Wais P. Early next year, Wais will release his official debut album, Pimpin Saved My Life, but first, Wais P is excited to announce his new mixtape, PV$$Y Rich. The tape will be released for free download this December, and in announcing the new tape, Wais is also unveiling the tape's first single, "Live My Bars," produced by Virginia producer Grussle.
While others are inclined to talk about it, Wais takes pride in the truth that permeates his music, good, bad, and otherwise. That said, this first single, "Live My Bars," premiered by HipHopDX, is something of a mission statement for Wais P, and the perfect introduction for the uninitiated listener. Outside of his burgeoning rap career, and his history working with Statik Selektah as a part of Statik's SHADE45 Show Off Radio show, Wais has a lengthy, noted history as a pimp, and so when he raps in the first verse, "Slay songs for the masses/ Pimp 'till I'm 50, then retire a pastor," it's safe to assume he means it. "There's an abundance of exaggeration in the rap game," says Wais P, explaining the inspiration behind the song. "If you don't live a certain lifestyle, don't glamorize it. I've been signed, stamped, and approved – tested P.I.M.P. positive."
