Boston Native Sammy Adams Explains Why It's LA Story
"Everybody's a model or a wannabe/If you're that bad it's in Paris where you ought'a be/She's an actress, working on the late shift/Only longs for a big break as a waitress," Sammy raps in his new single, 'LA Story.'
The native Bostonian said his song was not well received by his east coaster friends since his social commentary is embedded in such a catchy beat. "People from Boston would be like, 'Why'd you write an L.A. Story song?' And it's like well if you listen closely, you can tell I'm from Boston because I sort of take the piss out of a lot of things in L.A. "
"I think New York girls are more cultured and more intelligent," Sammy said. "There's sort of every walk of life in New York. I feel like girls fit a mold in Hollywood, and in New York there's such a wide variety, like European girls–girls from all over the world. They're just sort of well-versed in terms of culture."
Mike Posner sings the hook on the new track, which Sammy said was a fun project that was a long time coming. "Mike and I have known each other for years. We did a show together with Big Sean–I think it was 2008 or 2009–out in California.," Sammy said. "Then, Mikey released 'Matter of Time' and Sean was releasing 'Finally Famous' mix tapes, and then both of them blew up so we never got to work. We had ideas of working on songs together, then they both just got really busy. [L.A. Story] was great because we needed someone to help me sing the hook and do the bridge, and Mikey immediately came to mind." A lot more.
