Jay Worthy, DāM FunK & DRAM – Westside

Today, two of West Coast’s finest, Jay Worthy and Dām-FunK, link up on their new collaborative single “Westside” featuring rapper and producer DRAM. The latest offering from Worthy, “Westside” sees the pair effortlessly fashion an ode to the West Coast.



On “Westside,” Jay Worthy and Dām-FunK usher in intense feelings of nostalgia detailing their daily routines over a beat reminiscent of the golden years of G-Funk. The single arrives alongside a music video that sees Worthy and Dām-FunK riding in one of Worthy’s red old schools (a noteworthy item from the avid car collector), invoking the same Menace II Society energy from the 90s classic. Unhurried, the collaborators paint a vivid scene of the music that informed their creative, so much so you can almost peer through smoke-filled low riders to catch a glimpse of the distinctive sound of California’s rich hip-hop culture.

First arriving on the scene in the mid-2010s, Jay Worthy has made a name for himself working on tracks with artists like The Alchemist, Westside Gunn, Kamaiyah, Harry Fraud, and most recently Roc Marciano on their collaborative album Nothing Bigger Than the Program.

Enter Dām-FunK. Even before signing to Stones Throw in 2008, the DJ and record collector has remained a legend in his own right, keeping the spirit of Boogie and G-Funk alive as the genre’s foremost guardian all the while pushing its boundaries, collaborating with artists like Disclosure, Little Dragon, and spearheading 2023’s Dām-FunK Presents The Music of Grand Theft Auto Online Original Score for Rockstar Games.
