about

"LL over a Premo beat" only begins to describe the fresh sound of Champagne Duane's "NEED" (Produced by Jonny Cool), an authentic introduction to the artist and pure addition to Hip-Hop.

"Just Being Myself" may be one of Dionne Warwick's most soulful pieces of work. "NEED" wastes no time drawing you in with the way Jonny Cool masterfully samples "You Are the Heart of Me" from the 1973 album. The opening line "when it's real, it's real, and it's definitely real" precisely defines the feeling created from the bass line and piano play- it feels right. Duane delivers a straight forward message- no gimmicks, no metaphors, no exaggerations. He takes us on a journey through his wants and needs, helping us understand what's most important to him- from pleasure and experience to success, justice, and family. Through that thought process, we're able to determine Duane's character- someone with the awareness to know what they're looking for.

lyrics

Yea, yea
When it's real, it's real
And it's definitely real
Jonny Cool, why'd ya do it?
Aye... Jonny Cool, why'd ya do it?

Hey!

All I need/ wallet, phone keys/ a ticket somewhere nice where it prolly won't freeze/ a pocket full of cheese/ a couple calls from overseas/ excuse me while I kiss the sky and calmly shoot the breeze/ a clean whip, an extra mean chick/ wit a walk so sick u gotta quarantine her hips/ she got her own juice, she don't even need a sip/ I make Glad every Knight, she won't leave me like the Pips/ I'm like her pimp but I don't walk wit a limp/ what me prefer, she prefer, it's me and her, not them/ I need time wit da homies who don't argue bout the tip/ I'll have the double cut filet/ but I'ma start off wit the shrimp/ colossal...

Yea, yea
When it's real, it's real
And it's definitely real
Everything I need
I need a couple more things though

Already seen six figures but I think I need seven/ I say think cuz as soon as I get it ill need eleven/ call that Phil Jackson/ or call it relaxin/ or call it Phil Knight/ ima call n harass him/ I think back, I used to park in his spot/ I don't know about y'all I parked in a lot/ that was my state of mind... Get what he got/ so all I need now is that pinnacle spot/... Fresh kicks, a fresh cut/ a clean T, and guess what/ I'm all set, that's all it takes/ that's all I need to start the day/ LET'S GO!

Yea, yea
When it's real, it's real
And it's definitely real
Everything I need
I'll tell you what I don't need though

You can save ya five mics, I'd rather have five milli/ don't need too many friends, I'd rather have fa-milly/ no you can't take my bags, I'd rather have mine wit me/ any of that offended you, oh well that's fine with me/ all I needs to call home/ check in on mom and dad, and fall in my zone/ break out the pen n pad and fall in my zone/ and talk to my thoughts when I feel I'm all alone/ all I need is some cook up rice/ a tie and pockets square that hooks up nice/ an open line where I get my brothers advice/ SportsCenter all day and that should suffice/ fresh kicks, a fresh cut/ a clean T, and guess what/ I'm all set, that's all it takes/ that's all I need... these are the brakes/ Let's BLOW!

Yea, yea
When it's real, it's real
And it's definitely real

about

Champagne Duane Oakland, California

It is often said that an artist can change the game, but all too often it doesn’t happen. In the case of Champagne Duane, people should at least start paying attention. He is the definition of hard work and has brought his solid work ethic to the booth. Creative, witty, edgy, smooth and perceptive only begin to describe his approach to the game, but one word you should use is, complete. ... more
