This upbeat Jazz-HipHop fusion number was inspired by the amazingly talented musicians plying their craft all over the East Bay ("the 510"). While the entire Bay Area is full of musical talent – I tend to focus my visits to musical venues in the East Bay. we infused hiphop in this Jazz number right after our success with “Come With Me”. I truly believe that God blessed me to write these songs with my son David. I felt goosebumps when this song came to me as my very last composition – number 16. The final melodic phrasings lined up perfectly with the words “Bossa 5-1-0”. So perfect, I decided that this simply had to be our title track. The coups de gras was in adding the amazing R&B sensation Jamillions on vocals.
