Introducing: Bijan – ’89 Kids (Hip-Hop vs. Smashing Pumpkins Sample)


bijan 89 kids

Got to hear this one a few days ago, and was instantly impressed. Let us introduce to you Bijan, an artist hailing from Berkeley, CA with a hip-hop/indie sound. He already has approval from Universal, Interscope and the like, and is now getting ready to release his first album, The Path. Here’s a cut from it, dubbed appropriately “’89 Kids” while sampling the timeless classic 1979” by the Smashing Pumpkins. Bijan gets right into it, laying down an upbeat rap about living it up while you can, and follows that up singing the smooth and just as appropriate chorus. Watch out for this dude, this definitely isn’t the last time you’ll be hearing his voice on FITA, and elsewhere. You can check out the lyrics to this one after the jump if you’re curious.

Lyrics:

man you know how the story goes,
roads paved with gold,
dream real big ’til you think you’re old,
make sure you play your cards right ,
but you never really know so you had to fold

told no such thing as too far,
split that gas, squeeze in that car,
ride off into the sunset,
and keep going up til all we see is stars,

that’s how we’re passing our days,
trails.. amongst the things that we blaze,
now im sittin on the dock of the bay,
otis all day so you better light me up a J,

stay high ’til we kiss the sky,
straight up and we never coming down,
since 1989 we have a hell of a time,
cus some day we’ll be in the ground

Chorus
Soon as those bottles are cached we’re riding swings in the dark,
lie on our backs on the grass, light up and look at the stars,
calling out those constellations like we know what they are,
but we don’t know what they’re called we just know that they’re ours.

Verse 2
So I tripped out on my way,
and those last three shots turned night to day,
and that girl she’ll wait for me,
I don’t care if they leave so they always stay,
you think for a second its love, you think for a minute: it’s gone,
that happens every night ’til someone thinks they “just can’t move on”,
we’re living life with no strings,
think for a second I told you i beast,
had foresight but look how it decreased,
swallow that pride and go have you a feast,
i’m’ feeding you just what you need,
#dreambig thoughts and brownies with weed,
yeah we fill it up, and don’t give a fuck, go just live it up follow my lead
’cause we just do what we want, until we know what we need

Chorus
Soon as those bottles are cached we’re riding swings in the dark,
lie on our backs on the grass, light up and look at the stars,
calling out those constellations like we know what they are,
but we don’t know what they’re called we just know that they’re ours
