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. The Gurp Fam keeps growing and innovating rap music with artists like Trunk Drank, Z-Man, Fist Fam, Grand Invincible, Fay Dog, G-Pek, Eddie K, DJ Marz, Bullet Proof Space Travelers, Bullet Proof Scratch Hampsters, DJ Cue, Brandon B, Luke Sick, Iron Fist, Thuggy Fresh, 6 Feet Deep, DJ Mathew Africa, 4oneFunk, DJ Teeko, DJ Max Kane, DJ Mista-B, DJ B. Cause, DNAE Beats, Boac, The Makai, Third Sight, The AlterBoys, MC Oroville, Illsquad, Live Human, Lords Crew, Alex Pardee, Zero Friends, Big Sammy, DJ Raw B and Fatees.

Boac featured on Oh Dang!

Wednesday, February 28th, 2007

A new online magazine, Oh Dang! started up last summer, adding another take on urban culture. I like their honesty

we don’t know what we’re doing. We started this shit for fun over the summer. We’re still riding on training wheels. Maybe one day we’ll write groundbreaking stories that will save the children and heal the world. Who knows? For now, we’re bringing readers content that we feel is relevant to our peers. We’ve chopped it up with some of what we consider the best in independent music, art, and fashion. Ultimately, we want to write about what you want to read about.

Oh Dang! found an MC/Producer that they feel is relevant, and who they consider the best in independent music. Check out this interview with Boac on Oh Dang!.

the 40 oz show: 02.14.07…

Thursday, February 15th, 2007

Listen to The 40 Oz Show, bitches!

This week’s show fell on Valentine’s Day, and I didn’t play a single song about love, lust, bitches or hoes. You may think I’m slippin’ — seriously, how tough is it to slip Biz Markie’s “Just A Friend” into the mix? Fuck that. And fuck this Hallmark Holiday. But if you must have something in the way of a V-Day acknowledgment, consider this week’s show my special gift to you. Feel the love, bitches.

erok serial gawkers gurp city

I woke up the day after the Gurp City ART & Music thing and was going thru my jacket pockets when i found a CDr labeled Hour Long + UnCut. It was a little hazy but I began to remember getting the cd from Erok of Serial Gawkers fame, he said it was some new beats and remixes he was workin on and whatnot and for me to check it out and let him know what i thought. Well I was bumpin it the other day and I was feelin a couple of his remixes. One, a funky interpretation of biggies “Kick in the Door” and the other a mainey ass remix of Snoop’s “Drop it Like its Hot”. If you want copy of the cd or would like to collabo with Erok on any future projects holler at him at the Serial Gawkers Myspace page or email wombathunter13@yahoo.com.

Luke Sicks Diary entry from the 2007 Gurp City Art & Music Fest

Friday, February 9th, 2007

Luke Sick Sacred Hoop Gurp City
Dear Diary Feb. 3, 2007 GCAMF II
I showed up with “Gurp City Girls” and “GurpScouts” stickers. And they were both big hits. It was definitely the night of the GurpScouts. People were hella looking out for each other’s gurp, and everybody was hella trying to earn malt liquor merit badges
by double-fisting $6 forties of Olde E like they were playing Edward Forty-hands. Early in the dusk at Space Gallery, Marz (the gracious host of the event who consumed 2 forties before 8 pm and spent the rest of the night verging on black out—you gotta love this guy!) started cooking the boiled hot dogs that would serve as our sustenance. Did anybody notice the pair on the bartender downstairs at Space Gallery? Now that’s my kind of art! Topr called in NASA and got his teeth fixed! Conceit you next!
Here’s a rundown of the performances: (more…)
