Boston and Los Angeles are what feels like light years away from one another, both physically and stylistically. With Boston being known more for a blue-collar attitude, as opposed to L.A.’s glitz and glamour, it would be different to hear how the two sound meshed together. Recruiting Shoreline Mafia frontman, Rob Vicious, and Z Money, Boston native JWU attempts to bridge that gap on, “Run It Up.”

Produced by Mike Crook and Dupri, “Run It Up” is a potent, aggressive track that sees JWU trading off strong, west coast inspired lyrics alongside side Vicious & Z Money. With Vicious delivering a ridiculous guest verse as only he can, despite his best efforts to steal the show at times, the real gem here is the production. With menacing piano keys, rapid hi-hats and a lead melody that makes you feel like doing bad shit, “Run It Up” is one of the better records so far in December.
