People always ask me about how Gurp City started and how long we have been putting out music so I decided to start this segment to let people know. If the album is out of print, never officially released, or not available for download via Gurp City Digital I will post the whole thing here for you to download. If its available for purchase, I will just have a couple of key songs for you to check out.
To jump this off I decided to shine some light on the group that gave rap sensation Z-MAN his start, The 99th Demention.
Featuring members King Maz, Young Slim Goodworth, Rated R, Z-MAN, Rev. Cope, and PBF-1 the crew released their self-titled cassette in 1996 on 99cent Records. With raw production by Slim Goodworth, The Dangler, and another uncredited member of the 99th the crew, the MCs spit raps about everything from knockin’ dirty hoodrats, sellin dope, growing up in mainy situations to school and whatever else they had going on around them in the streets of San Francisco. Needless to say, heads were feeling the vibe and it garnered much attention for the group. 99th Dimension was often compared to The Pharcyde, which I attribute to having a fun vibe throughout this album.
