Machine Gun Kelly flash mob

I haven't heard of the Ohio based crew, nor the artist, but I've heard the name drop a few times, which means the group is doing something right. This video just proves to me how much you can do in rural areas and if you really had it poppin' like you say you do, your movement can prove much more with numbers. This is mainey, and this is the American Dream in some sense. Do you agree? Salute, to MGK x EST.

Mac Miller "Frick Park Market"

From the Mac's debut album "Blue Slide Park" he releases yet another dope visual directed by none other than the Rex Arrow. Fresh!

CALI VS VEGAS Beat Battle

Here is a recap for the battle I was in July 4th weekend in Las Vegas. Big up to Jeh Magazine for covering the event and choosing my Whitney joint for the soundtrack. Steez! Shout out to the young homie GS who took the win for Cali! Also, big shout out to Black Scale, SF for keeping me threaded.

P Funk "Off Top"

Bay Area artist, homie and lil bro P Funk back at bat with his latest visual for his upcoming mixtape, "Everybody Gotta Eat." Directed from the Golden State of Mind himself, Carlitotron. Enjoy!

Siya "No Church" (V-Nasty diss)

Brooklyn spitta, Siya goes in on Kreayshawn's counter part V-Nasty. What I find interesting is you couldn't possibly say V-Nasty with out mentioning Kreayshawn. AND V-Nasty's use of the word n*gga would've been unheard of if it weren't for Kreay's overnight success. Now, Siya on the other hand; SHEESH! That was a hot 16. We are all products of our environment and every consequence has its repercussion.

J Stalin "Memoirs of a Curb Surver"

I've always been a fan of J Stalin's music. I feel his delivery has this distinct grit and truth to it. I salute his grind because he's been successful by keepin' it lit and providing a solid label, "Livewire" for many up coming artist in the Bay Area, including Philthy Rich, Jay Jonah, Stevie Joe, Lil Rue and more.

Jay-Z & Kanye West "Otis" [VIDEO]

THE GOOD LIFE! That's how I sum up this video from J & Ye's album "Watch the Throne." I have yet to hear the album, so I have no review. I'm sure it's real eccentric and something crazy new, knowing that both these power house artist love to step the bar up and push the envelope every time. Oh yah, this presentation was directed by none other than the greatest and one of my favorites; Spike Jonze!

Kreayshawn x Rhapsody

Youtube thought I watch this and I did. By far one of my favorite Kreayshawn interviews. The video treatment looks ill too. Keep doin' you, were just kids damn'it! Bay Area!

Hopie "Off Tonight"

Team Backpack: Davinci x Shark Sinatra x Erk Tha Jerk x Nio Tha Gift

Coming from an era where we had no 1080p HD capabilities, no internet resources and we had ciphers in coffee houses, it's good to see the circle still exists and artists have a great way to gain exposure. The great thing about back in the day, was there were no auditions to step into a circle. You had to have the guts to cut the next emcee off to get heard. AND even if you did, YOU BETTER be fuckin' ill or your turn is up by your 4th bar. I love the 90's! Big shout out and salute to the Bay Area curators, Team Backpack!

San Quinn & Tuf Luv "Like Me" prod. Steven King

For a good year now 772 Entertainment, which is also now subsidiary to San Quinn's record label Done Deal, has been hard at work creating on a strong collaborative album with both San Francisco's Mayor, San Quinn and Oakland native Tuf Luv. The album is entitled, "A Hustlas Hope." It is exclusively produced by Steven King and myself. Most of the creative work and recording was also done at my studio. It was definietly a great project to work along side with Quinn again. Tuf Luv is also a very strong writer and fire spitter. Together they became this 2 headed monster that the Bay will be forced to be reckoned with. This album will be dope. Stay tuned!!
