Episode 112: 2 Nigs United 4 West Compton

On Episode 112 of the Press Rewind – Prince Lyrics Podcast, I invited Jerry Bonner back to the show to get his Black Album story and to briefly talk about the mostly instrumental track, “2 Nigs United 4 West Compton.” What’s going on at the beginning of this song, and who came up with the song’s title? We break it down on this episode.

“You’ll like them, they’re musicians”

Another (almost) instrumental that I’m still covering for my show about lyrics, I still get a kick out of talking about all Prince songs. Lyrical content to dissect gives me more focus, but I can still find a way to fill out 30 minutes or more, especially when I have a guest! Hopefully, you find some value in our discussion for this song and any future instrumentals to come! This one’s a straight-up banger, made for moving butts and feet.

Prince refers to “3 nigs watchin’ a kung-fu movie” in the middle of this SotT era rehearsal.

The goal of each episode of Press Rewind is to:

  • Take a track by track look at the lyrical content of Prince’s discography
  • Discuss my own interpretation of each song’s lyrics along with any guest I may have
  • If submitted, discuss listener’s interpretations of each song’s lyrics

Thank you for joining me on this journey through Prince’s catalog!
