Moet Manny X IzReal AzItGets – Hustle In The Rain / On Top (Dir. by Jae Synth)

Warm Towels!

Not a group. Odd pairing, in fact, but this tandem really works.

Moet nailed the hook & verse on, “Hustle in the Rain”

Sacramento’s up right now.

Welcome home Lavish D and what not.

Pacman Da Gunman feat G Perico – Zone (Prod. by SpaceNTime)

@1960pm, @BGPerico

Hook and refrain are quite accurate.

“I wanna be the first Crip with a billion” – Perico’s whole verse goes crazy.

Congrats on Pacman’s “Do It For the Hood” reaching 450,000 views.┬╣

Go check out,

Pacman’s latest: Optimistic II (2017, All Money In)

Dave East X Sos Mula – Home Invasion (Prod. by Triple A & Shot by Cisco)

ZillaKami X Sos Mula – Shinners 13 (Prod. by THRAXX)

Off the strength of last year’s, “YOKAI“, still checking in on that ZillaKami/ Tekashi69/ City Morgue axis. Slept on it early but Tekashi’s, “Sinaloa” is quite nasty.

Sky Balla feat Yowda and Berner – Come From Nothing (Shot by DJ Crook)

See the Pride and Pain in my Mama’s eyes?

Balla’s stint in prison (not to make light of the situation) served as a time-capsule to perfectly preserve him as a rapper from a different era.

Narco Life is the exact project you would hope for from Sky Balla post-incarceration.

He’s a veteran boxer coming off an extended lay-off. One who shook off all signs of ring-rust to come back with the composure, educated jab, and Ring IQ of a master boxer.

Surprisingly potent verse from Berner, here. I suppose one shouldn’t be surprised as Berner just released two great albums within the span of 12 months in Packs and Sleepwalkin’. The latter of which not only his best release to date, but easily one of my favorite albums this year.

YPOnTheBeat & J. Cash 1600 – Blap Bros.

Uber cool, high-functioning stoner-duo YPonDaBeat & J. Cash 1600 are on a hell of a run.

12 EPs last year. (check the Souncloud. All Blappers, no nappers.)

YP continues to menace sub-woofers this year with the Blap Bros EP series.

Seriously haven’t seen smokers this productive since Currensy’s mixtape run in ’08.

Mac J – Northside Story (Local Celebrity, @TrueStory_MacJ)


A New Challenger Approaches!

Location – Northside of Sacramento, CA
Label – True Story Entertainment
Rap region lineage – J-Mack, Hollow Tip, Ballin Ass Dame

Street-violence and gang-enhanced jail sentences somewhat stifled Oak Park and South Sacramento’s rap scenes (and the lives of those involved) but lo and behold North Sacramento’s new class has been bubbling.

Mac J’s slick wordplay and thoughtfully crafted first-hand street depictions harken back to cultclassics from predecessors Hollow Tip and Ballin’ Ass Dame but updated to reflect the current generation’s┬ásocial environment & rap stylings.
