‎NONCHALANT (feat. Mamii) by WESTSIDE BOOGIE

Updated: Dec 21, 2022




Anthony Tremaine Dixson (stage name-Westside Boogie) was born on August 30, 1989, in Compton, California. Boogie got his start in music after his mom motivated him to join the church choir. Soon after, he began writing lyrics and creating melodies, and he enrolled in Long Beach City College to study recording. Two albums- "Thirst 48" and "The Reach", released, 2014 and 2015 were defining achievements in Boogie's career. The rhythmic lyrics reveal Boogie contemplating issues plaguing South Los Angeles parent's at night.


In 2015, Interscope Records took notice of his talent, signing him up under their label, and in 2016, he released the album "Thirst 48 Pt. II," which showcased Boogie's raw, unfiltered lyricism, earning praise from artists like Rihanna and Kendrick Lamar. Ayo The Producer, Dana Williams, D'anna Stewart, DJ Quik, Grace Weber, KB Devaughn, K CAMP, and Mozzy were among the artists featured on the thirteen-track album. In the first song, "Still Thirsty," he gathers all the issues weighing him down: the stress to thrive, the anxiety of economic hardship, interpersonal hitches, and family challenges. When the high-rise notes and deep bass were removed, "Oh My" is about poverty and police brutality.


Usually when we making songs, I start off with just a melody. I try to catch the most firest melody to the beat. I’ll be high as shit, so we just be freestyling melodies, singing. I went in the studio, and I really just freestyled that melody. I was like, oh, this shit fire, but I didn’t know if I was just high, because everything be sounding good when you high. But the next day it was still fire so I was like, “Yeah, this shit lit, I’m keeping it like this.”

Boogie then signed with Shady Records and released his album, "Everythings for Sale," January 25, 2022, with hit singles such as "Rainy Days," "Silent Ride," and "Self Destruction." Unlike "Skydive" and "Skydive II," which focus on rhythm, "Time" casts light on his vocals, with his drawn-out lines simulating a man pleading for intimacy with melodic vibes as he sings about love insecurities.

Boogie's second album for Eminem's Shady Records, "More Black Superheroes," seeks greater meaning in exploring emotional vulnerability as a black man. The album has 12 tracks with contributions from Kalan FrFr, Teezo Touchdown, Smino, DRAM, Soulja Boy, Snoop Dogg, and more. What distinguishes this project from the others is Boogie's sincerity, making his struggles relatable. Hits like "Can't Get Over You" and "Somethin Strange" were romantic, but on "LOLSMH II" and "Prideful II," he shares tales of desire and duplicity . The creation, was managed by executive producer Keyel, alternating between digitalized G-funk loops and polymeric lowrider grab, as has always been a trademark of Boogie's music.



I usually do the melody first and fill in the words after, but, with that, I just kept that melody how it was. I felt like that concept could be fire because I’m ignorant and shit, and I just wanted to make an ignorant song. I just built off that.

The Compton rapper shares his battles in dealing with past torment and encounters in order to live a productive life in "Float." Furthermore, "Contradictions" delves deeper into this schism, explores his inner self on how he is regarded a nice guy or a gangster.


"Nonchalant" written By Boogie himself, Darius Dixson, Mamii, K. Walker, D. Ellis, Moses Elias & Naj Travis. There is a lighthearted back-and-forth between Boogie and vocalist Mamii in which he lays out his destructive habits before acting surprised when she stops answering his calls. On several occasions, he reflects on the irony of continuing to write songs about the destructive patterns he is perpetuating.




Lyrics By Genius

[Chorus: WESTSIDE BOOGIE & Mamii, WESTSIDE BOOGIE]

I called you up, you hit me with the nonchalant thing (Ooh-ooh)

I don't even think you want me (Ooh-ooh)

But I could love you more (I love you more)

Next time you call, I'ma just let the phone ring

You actin' like we wasn't nothing

So what am I here for? (Why am I here?)


[Post-Chorus: Mamii & WESTSIDE BOOGIE]

You callin' again, you callin' again

I'm not gonna answer, baby

How it feel, baby?

You see what you do to me, yeah, yeah

Yeah, yeah

You callin' again, you callin' again

I'm not gonna answer, baby

How it feel, baby?

See what you do to me, yeah


[Verse 1: WESTSIDE BOOGIE & Mamii]

Can you bring that overnight bag? Uh (Yeah)

Pre-rolls for the night cap? Yo (Yeah)

She into crystals to release and meditation at the beach

I'm into actin' like a thief and comin' takin' all that peace

How many bodies do you got on the North side? (North side)

Hope when I bring you 'round my homies it's your first time (Ooh)

Prolly not, though

I understand if you ain't tell me 'cause you know that I be judgin'

Maybe I was chasin' you or maybe I was runnin'

Maybe you ain't want it

Maybe I was huge to you and we was really somethin'

Or maybe I'm delusional and we was never nothin'

Never nothin', never


[Chorus: WESTSIDE BOOGIE & Mamii, WESTSIDE BOOGIE]

I called you up, you hit me with the nonchalant thing (Oh)

I don't even think you want me (Oh-oh, woah)

But I could love you more (Woah-woah)

Next time you call, I'ma just let the phone ring

You actin' like we wasn't nothing

So what am I here for?


[Post-Chorus: Mamii & WESTSIDE BOOGIE]

You callin' again and callin' again

I'm not gonna answer, baby

How it feel, baby? How it feel

Do what you do to me, yeah

You callin' again and callin' again

I'm not gonna answer, baby

How it feel, baby?

See what you do to me, yeah


[Verse 2: WESTSIDE BOOGIE]

Some type of 'tude to me, uh, be rude to me, uh

Don't just move on, that's so fuckin' cruel to me

All your other sides was forever new to me

But then you got used to me, truthfully

You know I just wanna pick fights, uh

When you let this shit slide, I get scared

Tellin' me this shit mine, uh

Then you go and switch sides, I'm not here

Just to keep it on the flow, when we get to low tides

When we make it back to land, that's when the convo get

That's when the convo get dry

You start bein' dramatic and I start makin' the caption

Thinkin' I'll get a reaction, but all that happen is


[Chorus: WESTSIDE BOOGIE & Mamii, WESTSIDE BOOGIE]

I called you up, you hit me with the nonchalant thing (Ooh)

I don't even think you want me (Ooh)

But I could love you more (I could love you more, I could live you, Woah-woah)

Next time you call, I'ma just let the phone ring

You actin' like we wasn't nothing

So what am I here for?
