This single was the first to drop off the much anticipated “Acoustic Thoughts” Compilation. The CD has features from Emcees throughout Cali, with beats and production from talented producers – L.A. to Brooklyn. This project started off as a collaboration of several Artists but the collection of music had such a good vibe, it needed to be put together on one CD.
Epicenter was one of the first songs from Scarred IV Life, for this project. The chorus was done first, the lyrics were done next and the name of the song came last. The beat gave the impression that it was centered around something….an epicenter. Hence, the name.
The track had a West Coast vibe to it and the chorus reinforced that. When the video was shot, Scarred IV Life contacted one of the best known Pop Lockers on the West Coast – Compton representative ‘Koolboy Hoodbotics’. Koolboy was down to be on the video and asked to hear the track. Shortly after getting the email, Koolboy called Scarred IV Life and said “Yeah, we definitely gonna work together on this one!” (Much respects for that Bro! – IV)
