about

Anacron and long- time cohort Astrobwoy teamed up in 2002 to produce and perform the classic underground album, "Double-A Battery"; with vicious turntablist DJ Daze.

After a short-run physical press and minimal distribution, the album faded away as a memory of pure West Coast fresh for those that were able to get their hands on a copy. Now, this ingenious amalgamation of vocal and instrumental tracks resurfaces 10 years after it's inception; remastered for digital re-release.

Track Name: Tidal Tracc
[Anacron]
Here we go now, so raw
Finna get it crackin' at the hoe-down, faux pas
flow off the lip. Foes often trip,
but when we loc up, they look low, cough then dip

[Astrobwoy]
So spectacular, flossing Crip
Empty magazines then we tossing clips
Shit-talking rap guys get attacked
like rocking yarmulke's on the streets of Iraq

[Anacron]
Peep the fly track, we speak and lie back
Ya'll too serious; fool, we trying to relax
You're gonna have to relapse to dreaming you got me
while I'm hollering victory like, "Bitch, Yahtzee!"

[Astrobwoy]
Rock these hoes out of their hot jeans
Fuck these bros in the hip-hop scene
I'm so obscene when it comes to chumps
My whole family's fat like the Klumps

CHORUS
We've gotten these hot MC's incisors chattering
Astro' and 'Cron, Double-A Battery
Complex flows simplistic patterning
'Cron and 'Astro, Double-A Battery
Independent gangsters, we love to dance
Even more diesel than our fancy pants
Fabulous before the Pairograffery
The staff of G's, Double-A Battery

[Astrobwoy]
This is dedicated to the marks that hated,
boring battle rappers, and the critics that graded
Working your jaw bone, it's going to get shattered
You double-gay and finna get Double-A battered

[Anacron]
Assault; I'm a hot-head to a fault,
You're caught in the tummy somersault
Cobalt; I'm wearing that you're crying salt
I vault while the coppers holler "halt!"

[Astrobwoy]
A to the S to the T-R-O
High-priced nasty rap, escargot
Light-brown niggas, Blacker than charcoal
and we are pro daily, April to Marzo

[Anacron]
Metaphors mean squat when marks mouths get mashed
and critical quips can't keep your collarbone from getting crashed
I'm a razor bump rash, all up in your face,
here to give you a taste of the annoyance you create

CHORUS

[Both]
Chin goes up, forehead goes down
That's the way you nod your head to the sound
Chin goes up, forehead goes down
Now ride

[Anacron]
This the dopest shit you got within earshot
so slide it in your Alpine because it's too hot to trot
Roll the windows down and share it with the rest of the block
Blow the system out not caring about the five-zero
Don't end the drive here, though; make it city-wide
and sing along with a grin and a sparkle in your eye
Absorb the pleasant vibe like Garfield with a pie
I'ma let my cuzzin ride because it's so hard to say goodbye

[Astrobwoy]
I got a white cap with a big blue "C"
One of two G's that make you say Ooh-Wee
Whether kicking raps or producing
We beat like Jim Kelly and Bruce Lee
'Cron's GQ'ed but I stay G'ed up
Crenshaw/Slauson-style khaki cuffed
Busters want to doubt it but they'll know we tough
when they're on the floor hollering, "That's enough!"

CHORUS

[Both]
Chin goes up, forehead goes down
That's the way you nod your head to the sound
Chin goes up, forehead goes down
Now ride
Track Name: 2003: Shocc & Awe
[Astrobwoy]
I forgot about this by 2001
Now it's oh-tray and the war's begun
Fuck this war and political punks
that talk shit and send somebody else to dump
Somebody's dad or somebody's son
just because their leaders are afraid of guns
Somebody's brother or their little cuz
since they're too weak to throw fisticuffs
I'm talking about Saddam Hussein and George Bush
Two mark motherfuckers that need to get mushed
Talking all hard right through their teeth
involving whole nations in their personal beef
Bending the rules with their political power
Playing hero when they're really nothing but cowards
One-on-one, they'd probably circle around
shoulder to shoulder and nothing would go down
Face to face, they'd be afraid to throw;
but they talk that shit on television, though.
If ya'll got funk, just handle it then
Fuck the armed forces, do it like real men
and if you're going to send someone else to fight,
you should be there with them homeboy, it ain't right
They in there dying while you're out here full
Trying to act like you're the fucking mogul

[Anacron]
It's about oil and dollars
and a punk bitch trying to avenge the name of his father
Now it seems like what we've got going on here, dude
is a good old-fashioned family feud
I'll tell you one thang, my name ain't Hussein
But I never been cuffed by an Iraqi because I came to a party
Or just 'cause I was hanging on the curb
but I'm still an American, it would be absurd
for me to say otherwise; that's something you realize
when you go overseas to other countries
and see folks down for their nation all the time
I hate the legislation, but I'm down for mine

[Astrobwoy]
Don't even think about drafting me
I'm not pulling heat on no Iraqi
I need ammunition for the war at home
when niggas want to blast on the turf I roam
Don't even think about drafting me
Shit is more out of hand than it have to be
How I'm going to go fight in foreign lands
when I've got beef with other Americans
An army of one is the staff for me
So don't even think about drafting me
Don't even think about drafting me
Don't even think about drafting me

[Anacron]
I'm like this
I don't support the war, but I might dis
any mark protesting shit and starting up rallys
from New York to Northern Cali you're the punks that dilly-dally
when it's time for fighting or time to get rugged,
suddenly you're saying nothing, most of ya'll would get to trucking
when the cops start busting tear gas canisters
Courage levels fall like little kids off of banisters
There's some soldiers that need to know
that if they get got, the blood that they bleed won't
be for naught; it'll mean something to the
people they're protecting from somebody else's fight
Whether or not you voted for our president
won't matter when a warhead finds your hood and levels it
You got to show love to the soldiers in the field
The only thing between you and a real fucked
up situation is them, so quit hatin
Get your ass on the internet and write a letter of thanks
Trying to start riots and blocking off streets
ain't did shit yet but aggravate the police
That ain't the way to get peace! Just like your
nemesis, it's seems you're starting a pointless war
What you marching for? Wanna-be valiant hearted
Man, you can't stop a war that has already started until it's done
Track Name: Elks Part Five
[Astrobwoy]
I just want to fuck commitment's too much
I'm not very touching, but I'm cool with being touched
Seeing rough relationships with dips is tough
Please believe I've seen more than enough
Give me two things: A whore and a stunt
horny as fuck on the floor both at once
Hoes make assumptions that I'm hunting for humping
No game, I'm blunt when I want something
I'll tell you what, when, why, and how I want it,
then let you know what you can get from it
Bitches get offended, to me that's proof
Cunts love when macks be bending the truth
No tight, snooty-ass, hoes quite bougie
are dope like groupies that blow like Hootie
Ditch the fish, we ain't got to cuddle
No spooning, choosing who sleeps in the puddle
I dig a hoe down for the penetration
She'll do the damn thing with no expectations
I never love a groupie, but I got love for them
American or foreign, I just can't ignore them
Lift up your kilt, the cunt is getting killed
Ram rod in you, all the way to the hilt
Skin soft as silk and cooch wetter than milk
Bult off-tilt, an Elk's a different ilk

[Anacron]
I scouted this girl, she was out of this world
Shouted a swirl of game to make her toes curl
and she act like she ain't heard the mack
Bold and rolling her eyes like she was jacked on smack
I was taken aback; you high post hoe
Thinking you're a one-oh, I'ma break it down slow
Yeah, you look good; I'll give you that much,
but your rude attitude produced a slut I wouldn't touch
with a ten foot rod. I been put wads
of cum on dumb hoes that was way finer than you
In designers and two bucks is all of your cash
Gold miner, and few chumps be chasing the ass
Seen you walking like an emu and I know your M.O.
Probably rolled up here in someone else's limo
Giving jaw to superstars like Jay Leno
Scoping like a nigga with a rap demo
Looking for the ballers with the platinum extensions,
ordering Midori and trying to catch their attention
Shaking your tail and getting all up in the face
of anybody with the pull to show you just how fame tastes
You're a crying disgrace; if your father witnessed this,
I guarantee he'd snatch you right out of VIP by your wrist
then tell you to go home and put on some clothes
Hollering what someone should've told you long ago

[Both]
You ain't fresh
Uh-uh, naw baby
You ain't fresh
So go'head with yourself
You ain't fresh
Who? Who, you!
You ain't fresh

Track Name: I Had Fun [Astrobwoy]
If I ain't on a track that's produced by me
it'll be by Ana Rok O-N-E
The dynamic duo is a devilish dream
Scream for the Double-A Battery team
The name is A-S-T-R-O
The game straight fresh G-Card flows
Fools play tough, but we are, though
See me at the promenade pulling three sharp hoes
It's so simple when your game's waterproof,
I ain't simpin', straight pimpin' on your daughter, dude
Traveling the coast along the golden state
Road trips with the rims holding weight
From Ben in L.A. to Angus in Berkeley
Weed and E, we got that work, G
Business is business, when it's said and done
at the end of the day, I'm glad I had fun

[CHORUS]
What is life if you don't have fun?
Is you living it right if you don't have fun?

I was nightclub browsing when I seen this bitch
Tall with the junks: hips, ass, and tits
Reddish-brown hair with a curly twist
Light-skinneded with lips like a fish
Her name was Lauren, we hit the dancefloor and
I knew right away she was primed for whoring
Grinding that ass all up on my schlong
Tongue in my mouth by the end of the song
It didn't take long to tear that ass on up
Later that night, we did the grown up
Seven more times within two weeks,
then I was already crushing on a brand new freak
Lauren kept calling, kept hanging around
Threw the cold shoulder, had to break it down
Sorry baby girl, but you're not that one
I want you to know though, that I had fun

[CHORUS]
I stay way down for those in my set
as long as they're trues and they don't forget
The guidelines that confine you to friends
Mistakes you make, you never do again
One of my potnas didn't know that, though
He tried to get crafty with the homeboy's hoe
Hating on him just to slim that trim
but he had no game so he couldn't win
The chick dissed swift and told her boyfriend this
from the clique dude was quickly dismissed
Left alone except a couple of scabs
I trust him about as far as cracker named Chad
Now he wants to be mad and talk that mess
Huffing and puffing, swelling up his chest
Fucking with my gangstas you catch a bad one
it was nice knowing you fool, but I had fun

Have fun, have fun, have fun, have fun

[CHORUS]
Track Name: American Supastar [Anacron]
It's Ana.Rok.One

The American Supastar
Parking lot platinum as I'm banging through your car
Original L.A. Breaking, the dancefloor dynamo
Far beyond sexy you know

I'm pulling way finer hoes than your average video chick
It's all part of the job to give these hoes dick
I stayed independent since the beginning
even with a major deal, I'm working stipulations in it
You got to know your business to survive
and I've been pioneering since Piazza was alive
I'm known around the world and getting play in foreign countries
South Africa, the UK, and Hungary
Is it any wonder that they want me?
Putting in work when the whole county was still 213
and zarks want to disregard the "G" in "gravitate"
Number one fashion plate in The Golden State
This the type of jam that makes the purists hate me
just wait until they see the Cornrowz on BET
Or chillin' on the couch late night with Conan
I'm trying to include everyone in the program
Can you feel it, broham?

The American Supastar
Parking lot platinum as I'm banging through your car
Original L.A. Breaking, the dancefloor dynamo
Far beyond sexy you know
(x2)

It's all on you to do what you can for yourself
don't sit around waiting on nobody else
Get motivated, fuck them fools that hated,
you can rub it in their faces every time you say "I made it"
Now, I ain't talking about no motor-mouthed lyricists
I'm talking to the real business persons hearing this
Anyone with an idea that ain't been done
could buckle down and knuckle up just to start shucking funds
Even if you've got to change a little bit
it don't mean shit when your skrit gets legit
'Cause then you do your shit when and how you please
To make it off of art, you've got to spend a lot of G's
To spend G's; you've got make paper,
why not get it from the same music industry that hate you?
That's what I'm screaming! Marks must be dreaming
if they think I'm too self-righteous to make scrilla off these demons

First you make the dollars and collect the payment
Then you pop your collar and you make a statement
(x8)

I'm trying to let you know that you can do this shit
The smallest piece of your talent can make big chips
If you didn't catch the moral, you can catch this dick
while I'm bouncing in a fur like that fool Fizzgig
You could keep hating, and grapefruit facing,
but I'll be releasing hella sequels like Jason
You could keep hating, and grapefruit facing,
but I'll be releasing hella sequels like Jason
while girls keep chasing

The American Supastar
Parking lot platinum as I'm banging through your car
Original L.A. Breaking, the dancefloor dynamo
Far beyond sexy you know
(x2)
