Not since West Coast All-Stars' 1990 track "We're All in the Same Gang" has California had a song and video professing such interstate unity as the "Welcome to California Remix" from SoCal gangster rapper 40 Glocc -- it features Snoop Dogg, E-40, Too $hort, Xzibit, and Sevin (the last of whom is a Christian-focused rapper from Sacramento).

Glocc has been infamous for beefing with rappers like Game and Lil Wayne. But "Welcome to California Remix" finds him in solidarity with California MCs on the recording and in the video, which features cameos from the likes of Ice Cube, Ice T, the Jacka, and Mistah F.A.B. Shot more than a year ago, there's a dizzying number of quick guest appearances, cleverly paired with the individuals' Twitter handles in case you want to throw some dubs and build up your online Westside army. Watch the video for this epic Golden State posse cut after the jump.

  • 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.'"
