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.

R.I.P. Matthew Africa

Posted by TheMayor

This past week the world lost an amazing individual, Matthew Africa. I only had the pleasure of meeting him a few times but he was close friends with many people that are an integral part of Gurp City and some of my dearest friends. Gone but never to be forgotten he will live on thru his amazing contributions and the lives he touched.

Gurp City Flasback – CONCEIT (Don’t Trip)

Posted by TheMayor

Stumbled on this tape while moving a couple months ago after not playing it for at least ten years. Had totally forgot about this great joint by Conceit on it. Further proof of just how dope he is even from way back in 1998. I always play this a few times in a row.
Off of the A Sound For Sore Ears cassette from 1998. 4 Track Music.

BORED SYNONYMOUS

Posted by TheMayor

Big Shawn of Bored Stiff loves the grimey underground sounds of the twelve track. He put this together to recreate the feel of the days of just recording and having fun with friends! Obviously produced entirely by Big Shawn features include Bored Stiff, L’Roneous, Z-MAN, FDOG, Tabb Doe, Curt Sak, Agentstriknine, and Blkbastard. An album that could only come out of San Francisco. The Bored Stiff legacy continues.

Name your own price download, no minumum:
