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.
