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.

Grand Killa Con “Year Of The Tre Bag” Debut Album

Posted by TheMayor

grandkilla cover
For those of you not up on Luke Sick, check his credentials: Sacred Hoop, Grand Invincible, Yole Boys, Rime Force Most Illin. The mean-spirited and gruff voiced rapper brings to mind Rakim smoking a pack a day, or Fredo Starr gaining 100 pounds from eating all his meals at the County Fair.

Similarly slept-on producer Brycon has been making slaps on the under since the late 90s as member of heralded groups GFE, Brycon & Equal and Simple Mathematics. His production credits include Action Bronson, Murs/Living Legends, Masta Ace and many more. Somewhere between RZA and DJ Premier exists the sound that is still distinctly Brycon. Oh and he smokes a lot of weed. Even a little hash.

Their debut album “Year Of The Tre Bag” (MegaKut) is 14 tracks worth of grimy Bay Area gutter sniping. Produced entirely by Brycon and held down by Luke Sick with appearances by Foulmouth Jerk and Lightbulb. Videos for the first and second official singles “Driftin Drifter” and “You’re The Bad One” are on the way.

You can download the first official single “Driftin Drifter”, stream the full length album, and purchase “Year Of The Tre Bag” below:

SACRED HOOP- Runny Poop – Vinyl Reissue – Out Now!

Posted by TheMayor

IMG_3066
This a remastered for vinyl reissue of Sacred Hoop’s original demo tape, originally distributed only on cassette back between ’94-’96. This re-issue also includes the never before released instrumental of Jedi-Subterranean, making it 8-songs total along with the original 7. These songs were written and recorded in the Bay Area and Arizona between ’93 and ’94 with Esoniq 16-plus and ASR-10 production by Vrse Murphy, delusional rhymes by Luke Sick and cuts by both; all recorded on a Tascam 688 8-track analog cassette recorder and mixed to DAT tape; and all heavily influenced by golden era hip-hop from ’87-’92. Each cover was individually designed and hand-screen-printed with unique colors and backgrounds under SH Duchamp-toilets logo by Eric Kneeland of Black Stamp Press, making each cover a one-of-a-kind piece of art. The record-label art was drawn by Matt Loomis and taken from a Sacred Hoop show flyer from 1999. Also included are a two-sided full-color photo collage sleeve of the crew and cohorts from back in the day and an envelope full of secret messages [like a unique letter hand-typed and signed by members of the Hoop among other goodies], and the envelope has been screen-printed with images from the Tascam 688 instruction manual.

Brycon just blessed us with a brand new 10 minute instrumental suite using records from a recent dig in Quito, Ecuador. His talents as a producer are very underrated but the upcoming Grand Killa Con album will change all of that no doubt.

Gurped out lurking cutty routes.
