Constant Flow, who hails from New Jersey and aligns himself with the one-and-only Immortal Technique, will release his album Ascension this Fall (Sept. 2nd). For “Dog Tags,” the New Jeruz native recruits Swave Sevah & Akir over some grandiose Southpaw production. Read below for the concept behind the song:
It’s basically like a roll call, so something similar to what is done in the marines, army or any military group. We actually created the song right in the studio from scratch — it was a very organic feel. Swave Sevah, Akir and myself are all a part of a team named Rebel Arms so in the chorus we all mention our names to signify who we are and what we represent — on my section of the chorus I say, “CF put killer on my Dog Tag,” Swave says, “Swave, put gorilla on my dog tag”, and Akir says, ” Akir, ain’t no one realer on my dog tag.” So I consider myself to be a killer on the mic and in the booth; Swave is a gorilla in the battle scene and AKIR’s name is an acronym for Always Keep It Real so he incorporated the “realer” part into his chorus to reflect that connection.
