S.F. rappers can make driving-around videos, too!
  • S.F. rappers can make driving-around videos, too!

We told you last week about the new mixtape from Bay Area hip-hop DJ Prince Aries, titled Clean Ass Whip. (The short version: It's a local rap mixtape, and it's good.) Today arrived the video for the mix's title cut, a flush, laid-back rhyme featuring S.F. rappers DaVinci, SanQuinn, and Matt Blaque that makes us really wish we owned any kind of whip -- clean-ass or not -- to ride in.

Our car envy exploded after a few views of this video, which has DaVinci and crew "rolling around" S.F. in a gorgeous '69 (?) Chevy Malibu convertible and posturing proudly beside their beloved assemblages of sheet metal. (Also featured: A maroon Impala with gigantic rims and a Corvette.)

Wait, you didn't think S.F. rappers owned cars? Turns out, they do. Clean-ass ones, even, which they drive with great satisfaction around this fair city of ours. (Sigh.) But seriously, enjoy this:

  • 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.'"
