Gurp City

It's like Vegas fool. San Francisco and the Bay Area rappers, producers and DJs all get together for one good cause, to get drunk as fuck and make good music. Gurp City consists of hip hop pioneers such as DJ Quest and DJ Eddie Def to underground legends like Bored Stiff and Sacred Hoop to freestyle champions TopR and Conceit...pretty much every alcoholic rapper in the Bay Area of California.

Gurp City photographer Amanda Lopez hustles. Not only is she part of the M.I.S.S. Crew and Dandelion Black, but she is also a featured photographer on Okay Player. SF native Lopez is currently trying to win a bid for a grant to document the Mission District for San Francisco. She has shot for Quannum recording artists, Urb, Synthesis, The Preformer, Vibe, Mass Appeal, The Legend, and Vapors.

Amanda’s day job is working as an assistant to world famous photographer, Estevan Oriol. You have most likely seen his work through Upper Playground, Joker Clothing, Soul Assassins, filmed music videos for Kool G Rap, Cypress Hill, DJ Muggs, Paul Wall (Higg’s favorite), Blink 182, even P.O.D. and has shot for almost every music magazine we read.

Lopez recently laced me with an original photo from her Vans Series of her and her mentor.
