There has to be some sort of delicious (or is it weird?) irony that an ode to California was crafted by a quartet of artists who are not originally from The Golden State. However, that is the case with North Carolina-reared artist Colonel Loud, whose single “California” – also featuring fellow Southerners T.I., Young Dolph and Ricco Barrino – is currently in the top-20 of the Billboard charts. The four now, incidentally, head to the sunny West Coast for the visual treatment of the song.
Women, weed, whips and weather are on the menu, as the four partake in some of the finest things the state has to offer. However this clearly only shows Southern California, as Northern California is roughly 40 degrees cooler than its lower half, and patrons are more inclined to be wrapped in bubble coats and scarves than bikinis and tanks. Then again, Colonel Loud’s song is clearly about Southern California, so their colder brothers will have to take the L on this one.
