Caaaaalliiiffoorrrnniiaaa loooooooove!!!! Fresh off the producer’s table comes a new California anthem for the 21st Century from four natives. Zion I (Oakland), The Grouch (San Francisco) and Eligh (Los Angeles) joined forces for the tranqued-out, slow jam, “I Love California Like You.”
The jam is packed with all the things we Californians love: weed, cars, cultural diversity, sunshine and shout-outs to every place from Humboldt to the Bay to L.A. Live in the San Fernando Valley? They’ve got you covered. Spent some time hanging in Echo Park? You’ll hear a familiar name. San Jose and Fresno even get a nod towards the end because goddammit, they still Cali too.
Admittedly, one of our favorite parts of the song is the beginning sound clip of Will Farrell with the tranquilizer dart stuck in his neck from “Old School.” Classic!
The song drops just in time for anyone in or near Flagstaff, Arizona to catch Zion I, The Grouch AND Eligh at the Green Room. We know, it’s not Cali. However, Zion I will be back in the state with Slightly Stoopid on July 9th in Chula Vista.
