Still awaiting a release date for their Kickback album, Cali Swag District's Yung recentlyt talked to SOHH about why fans should support the debut.
"The number one reason why you should go out and buy The Kickback is because "Teach Me How To Dougie" is on the album. And I know everybody loved that song, so if you want to cop that, put it in your CD player and bang that out, you'll get to hear that. We're not gonna try to put the record on too early because the fans have been hearing it the whole time we've been out. So we're not gonna give it to them too early on the album, they're gonna have to wait." (Buy My Record)
