They love to spin a story of popping bottles, but couldn't loan you a few bucks for a MetroCard. While it's cool to flex in a nice ride or a new pair of kicks, there's no substitute for the grind. Although social media has allowed us to be viewed in the light we choose, the world wide web doesn't pull any punches when it comes to your cash flow. Backed by a haunting violin sample and banging drum section produced by tC, "High End" from newcomer Westbay and fellow Brooklynite Troy Ave, have the Kings County duo speaking on what it takes to make it to the top. Full of direct lines that call out those who never "wanna earn their strips, they just wanna act hard, talk tough, but they never wanna fight," the track serves as a hustler's anthem that'll appeal to fans of dope rhymes and tough beats. "High End" is set to be featured on Westbay's forthcoming album, 'Spread Love'.. stay tuned! About Westbay: Raised by the park of hard knocks, Brooklyn native Westbay attributes his upbringing to his third parent; the blue collar neighborhood of Marine Park. The park, the handball courts, and a familiar milk crate at more BBQ's than he can remember, were sites of a series of firsts; first date, first beer, first fight. Feeling like he's seen enough and done enough, Westbay is ready to share his stories and advice for his fans so they may follow suit, or at least learn from his mistakes. Since joining cyphers at 13 with the older teenagers, and putting words to a beat in his friend's bedroom, rapping has become more than a way to get girls and impress friends. Westbay has since moved on from his battle rapping days, but nevertheless, there's no denying his presence on the mic. Nowadays, rhyming has become a vehicle for Westbay to balance the harm caused by the likes of Teen Mom and Worldstar fanatics. By taking a trip down memory lane, and channeling the memories he's amassed from the park that has sat across from his childhood home, Westbay is here to prove that Hip-Hop is alive and well in the other side of Brooklyn.
