Watch: DaVinci's "In My City" Is a Gorgeous Bit of Hometown Boosterism

Days after San Francisco's own DaVinci dropped a brand-new album for free -- the dense and delightful The MOEna Lisa -- here's a new video for the bumpin' track "In My City," which might be the best bit of Sucka Free City eye-candy we've seen all year. Shot in gorgeous black and white, the Tim Jieh-directed video has this Fillmore rapper reppin' his home hood along with other lovely S.F. locales like North Beach and Twin Peaks. He even ventures out of town to Oakland and Vallejo, grabbing cameos from the likes of Main Attrakionz and others along the way.

As we wrote in an earlier post about The MOEna Lisa, DaVinci is a long-struggling local MC who seems to finally be getting his due. "In My City" is representative of the kinds of tracks that fill his latest full-length: Big, bouncy, and with a more celebratory tone than the darker chronicles of DaVinci's previous work. You can still grab the record for free, and check out the video below. This dude has hella S.F. pride, and you will too after watching this tour around town.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
