N-Pire Da Great "Everybody Hates Nash" [DOWNLOAD]

The Sacramento flame spitta finally drops his anticipated album entitled, "Everybody Hates Nash." A premium blend of all coasts. I've been a fan of N-Pire's music and I know most of you heads out there would appreciate his sound and ability to produce his own beats. Stay on the look out for major collaborations with N-Pire & I, it's going to be dope, of course.

Out the gate from my first few listens, I felt I was back in the early 90's listening to Raekwon & Ghostface from a tape deck. Definitely refreshing!

Erk Tha Jerk "Nerds Eye 2" [DOWNLOAD]

Bay Area artist, Erk Tha Jerk is back yet again with the sequel to his successful volume series "Nerds Eye View." I have yet to listen to it cause I'm out here in Hawaii maxxin' out, but it's downloaded and will be slappin it in my rent a car on the way to North Shore. I'm almost positive that this album will be great.

The Jealous Guys "Genesis" (TEASER)

Big birthday shout out to Chasen Paper @ 24k Milkcrate. A great place for honest music and amazing music and visuals. Here is his latest video for The Jealous Guys' latest EP entitled the, "Audio Book." Make sure you stay tuned! These upcoming Bay Area hip hop duo is something to look out for and also a really great sound for the Bay. Enjoy!

Andre Nicktatina & The Jacka "Scared Crows"

Quick little low budget video from Nickatina & Jacka album, "My Middle Name is Crime." You would expect more production value from a Bay Area legend such as Andre Nickatina, but the way we produce material out here in the Bay is just too easy. Definitely, a gift & curse. Yet, still great to see Nicky attack the online community.

J Billion x Dex Beats: The Making of 1988 Testarossa

Every Wednesday for nearly 3 years straight, J Billion and I worked long hours at the studio building and making music not knowing we would create a sound for "Super Steezy". We have this working chemistry now that allows me to be a lot more creative and less engineer'ish. It seems to create and pump out dope records. This is a video that pretty much demonstrates that process. Shout out to Thizzler on the Roof and Left Lane for such a brilliant piece.

Mac Miller "Best Day Ever"

As an aspiring director I really appreciate videos like Mac Miller's" best day ever. I've always been a fan of Rex Arrow's work. This crew hasn't failed, yet. At least in my eyes. Great video!! You can find this song on Mac's latest work; "Best Day Ever"

Damey "Storerun; Cali" [DOWNLOAD]

You gotta hear this! Damey of the Dilligentz is here to deliver a Cali masterpiece with his latest album. Already from the gate I was hooked and all ears. I've had the pleasure to work with Damey a while back on a record entitled, "Free-Throws" which is also featured on the album. We spent the session creating the beat from the ground up and moving on to concept and wrapped the song up by the end of the session. Stay tuned! Get Familiar!

AP 9 "The One" feat. Deltrice

Another DJ Crook production, u biiitches! This is from the newly released compilation "Stompilation Vol. 2" which is now available on iTunes AND features a Dex Beats production entitled, "Loaded Weapon". Go copp that. This should definitely be one of your TOP purchases if you love Bay Area music.

Shout out to the Powerhouse crew. TJ the Director and I go way back and I'm glad to see him evolve in this industry. He used my studio for one of the scenes in the video, if not, one of the vital ones that helps tell this story. I'm sure the video will turn out dope. Just watch the trailer.

Clyde Carson "If I was a Pimp" feat. The Jacka


Roach Gigz "Stupid Dumb Knock" feat. Husalah & Lil B

Kendrick Lamar x Pharell Williams

You really don't need Pharell's seal of approval to know that Kendirck is one of the nicest in the game, period. To me his mixtape "Section 80" was very original. He definitely pushed the envelope and carved himself a lane. Section 80 has a fusion of sounds and styles that are "hot" and current and yet it has this twist that just throws me in a loop, like, "is he really rappin' to this, like that!?" If you haven't downloaded "Section 80" you should. Here's the link: DOWNLOAD SECTION 80

N.O.R.E. "Like The Way" feat. Pharrell

Noreaga? In the Philippines? LOL! Remember that? I think this video is hilarious and I was kinda stoked to see Nore on a Neptunes beat again. Enjoy! By the way, this is BangBros crew Nore is getting fucked up with.



Throwback!

Who is Kreayshawn?

I try to blog about music I hear myself bumpin' in my whip everyday, but most times I blog about new Bay Area artist that are making a great deal of credible noise. Lately, there's not a week that goes by that someone is like, "Who the Fuck is Kreashawn?" so, besides the 2011 Bay Area Freshman list and the "Bumpin' Bumpin'" video I posted a while back, I'm here to hopefully introduce to you once a'mufuqin'gin, one of Bay Area's young up and coming stars as well as her hit single, "Gucci, Gucci".



Here is some insight from the grind king himself, Mistah FAB on the state of new bay area artist and even his connection with Kreayshawn's 1.2 Million dollar deal.
