For those unfamiliar, Compton rappers Lil L and JohnBoyKool have been staples of their local scenes for years now. Linking up for a new collaborative effort, the two Kendrick Lamar affiliates make their section proud with “Westside of the Bridge.”
Debuted via its official video, “Westside of the Bridge” is a new-age West Coast anthem tailored towards those with the same Compton upbringings as Lil L and JohnBoyKool. The video was directed by Andy Capper, and takes viewer to a local swap meet and its collaborators’ late-night haunts. Besides this drop, Lil L has also worked with fellow Compton native and Kendrick Lamar associate Hitta J3 for another new video in support of their joint record “All Day.”
You can check out the videos for Lil L and JohnBoyKool’s “Westside of the Bridge” track and Lil L’s Hitta J3 collaboration below. JohnBoyKool, Lil L and Hitta J3 are all planning to drop new solo projects in the very near future.
