"Jose Rios" was recorded at the SCRAM house on Hobart Blvd; Once home to Dumbfoundead, Jose Rios, Ron Avant and EOM. The Record took one year to make and is inspired by all the events that took place while living there. I'm so grateful for all the talented people I'm surrounded by and want to thank everybody who helped make this record possible. First off, Ron Avant and EOM for letting me come to your rooms to ask for synth and piano help. To Dumbfoundead for that dope verse and letting me use the studio for Vox. My Freenational brothers Lodef and Kelesy Gonzalez!! Anderson Paak for keeping me motivated. DJ ZO for the crazy scratches and for mentoring me on my DJ journey. My beautiful and intelligent girlfriend Amiya Bardon whose ideas and creativity have shaped the visual side of the record. My Parents for always believing in me. To my baby girl Journi for her unconditional love, keeping me grounded. My Grandparents who have always made me proud to be Mexicano. I'm so grateful to all of my familia and friends who have supported me through my musical journey. And to all the fans all over the world that purchased my last record! This record represents one year of my life in thirteen tracks. Peace and blessings.

Oh boo , old news. Moving on like we suppose to. Taking my time hit the right spots like Floyd do. Jameson shots and coke boo yikes you got me twisted now your bottom half is missing kissing all spots the other dudes be missing, finger licking. Tongue twisting. Nieghbor tripping. Next position. Namaste is how we living. Time to roll up,and roll out sun another day upon us your scent lingers on even after your gone take down my math don't forget to holler back peace


Pickin up where we left off I know this ain't your first time, lying bout the last time. You said that was your man right, you usually don't do this. Except for me change that. I like the way you lean back ready for me to take that. You say you wanna bring a friend I hope she just as fine yo sitting on the couch vibing to the songs I'm writing sippining on some wine n , I got the perfect timing. They both up on my neck , I feel the pressure rising , music hypnotizing kick snare riding, both lying naked on this bed that I provided, Sa-RA on repeat, kissin on your feet, I know you like the freaky shit I'm not gunna be discreet, this how I'm
Living judge if you want to, I'm a keep it moving just like I want to
