Sacramento flame spittas scorch this record. I can't expect nothing less from these two. Their delivery is cold blooded. The record is also produced by Clams Casino who is also responsible for "Brainwashed By London" of The Jealous Guys and a lot of records from Harlem's own, ASAP. Shout out to the Stoner Gang fam.

From the gate before the video I already knew the song would be a problem due to the fact that every coast just loves to swagger jack our region. It's a dope record, only because it's our sound and I gig to this shit. Slappin' Drake and Weezy on it is just proven fact that our sound is original and major labels can't help but jack our sound because the Bay can break records. What I don't get, is I already heard 100's of songs like this from the young local talent and yet, no radio play. WTF!? Oh, and nice boots Weezy! Not steezy.
Z&G&E (Zion I, The Grouch and Eligh) and Evidence birthed a dope song and video this past month while on the road together! The guys just finished the extremely successful (mostly sold out) 19 city "How The Grouch Stole Christmas Tour". DOWNLOAD

We are still very deeply rooted in Hip Hop here in the Bay Area. This performance battle/between super producers, Amp Live and Dj Fresh is solid proof we've evolved. The MPC vs the 1200, that's inspiring. DJ Fresh is so sick for that juggle routine at the end. I thought I was watching Roc Raider for a minute. Dope!
Something big went down in the Bay, but till it's announced and official I'll keep my mouth sealed. But, by the looks of the behind the scenes footage provided below, it's not hard to see that there is something brewing. It's a beautiful thing and very fortunate opportunity to see the emerging young talent in the Bay collaborating with a global super star like 50 Cent. This kind of stuff doesn't happen on a fluke. A lot of grind and effort and most importantly the belief that you can make something out of nothing, is what makes the dream work.

These records will remain timeless. If you have yet, to download the Black Scale x Diamond compilation orchestrated by Droop-E you're definitely missing out. The whole album was created from Sade records and has also includes some notable features. Oh, and E-40's son? His name is Droop-E.
Why not catch up with Bay Area pioneer, Jerm Jilla. He's been doing his thang real tough and I salute the global grind he got going. There's not many people in the world that can make a living from what they love, let alone from something they started out just for kicks. Jerm is definitely an original and all you knock off biters need to find your own steez. Stop stealing Bay swag, ho!
This was very well needed! I appreciate these moments when blogging music and you stumble upon records like these. Not only do I think FREEWAY has the illest delivery I've heard, but Tek from Smif n Wessun is a legend and was a big inspiration in my day. Ha! Remember Coco Brovas, whyyyy!? Lol. Sound bwuaay still got it. Never doubted it.
