This dance has been this rapper’s signature as seen on most of his Tik Tok videos , little did we know that that’s how he cultivated his inspiration for “Coldest Walk In Africa”.

The west coast sound is associated with the dance “Crip walking” cause I listen to so much of that style music I’d always do the dance and people would always say I have the “Best walk in Africa” and that’s what inspired the song” said Phonixthecool

“Coldest Walk in Africa” embraces the true West Coast elements and soul of the sound , this offering is completed by the rapper/producer’s flow on lyrics .
