2. "Greatness" feat. Young Gully and Shady Blaze

Another savvy pairing of rappers, East Oakland's Young Gully and Shady Blaze drop high-octane raps over a beat that's positively breezy. A full-length collabo would be a treat.

1. "Ain't A Thing" feat. Roach Gigz and IAmSu!

What's not to like about two of the Bay's most charismatic spitters doing their thing over a relaxed and funky beat? Gigz, for his part, plays something of the mack, bragging about how he's "getting so much pussy I'm hearing cats meow."

  • 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.'"
