John Givez – “Johnny’s Cookout”

blame it on Shake December 14, 2016

It’s been a minute since we’ve heard from John Givez, but the Oceanside emcee is back at it.

With Soul Rebel still in heavy rotation (seriously, check it out if you haven’t), Givez provides some food for the soul on “Johnny’s Cookout.” Produced by Anthony Cruz and Erik Kingsley, the jam plays on the old southern adage “Ain’t no thang but a chicken wang” that Outkast made popular in the mid-90s.

We all come from different walks of life. We all deal with our own demons and make choices that effect our future. But tomorrow isn’t promised, so leave the drama at the doorstep and be sure to break bread with your loved ones while you still can.

Vibe out below and join us in hoping this means a new John Givez project is on the way.

As a bonus, Givez also joined his Dream Junkies comrade Ruslan in the official video for “Left Coast II” from his Americana album.
