 G-Eazy performs onstage during Power 96.1's Atlanta Jingle Ball  on Dec. 14, 2018 in Atlanta. 

A collaboration between G-Eazy and Blueface has long been in the pipeline, as behind-the-scenes footage emerged of the pair alongside YG shooting the video to what we now know is being dubbed as "West Coast." The bouncy tune found its way onto streaming services Thursday (Feb. 28), with the pair of California natives proudly repping where they're from.

Producer Julia Lewis pays homage to Oakland native Richie Rich with his 1996 hit "Let's Ride" sampled on a loop, setting the tone for what's to come. Young Gerald also hints at something (a new album?) coming in summer 2019. "I'm coming this summer, yeah, it's safe to assume/ I'm finna clean up using Golden State’s broom/ West Coast, real town business/ Puma check just got cleared, Merry Christmas/ More sales, you catching more L’s," he raps.

The "Thotiana" rapper then takes the baton and crowns himself as the new face of the West Coast. "It's the face of the West Coast/ Been mackin, and I got more bitches than PetCo/ VVSs breakin', they bustin' like the Metro/ West Side Yankees, Midtown business/ Yeah aight, Schoolyard to the children/ Used to be broke, Cash Money got me healing," Blueface Baby rhymes.
