Another Gus Cutty leak and Al Lover’s new video

Posted by TheMayor

Alright then, here it is, Sour Baby Leak #2 once again produced by Micah Aza for Hardwork Productions. This has been the coldest and dreariest summer I have spent in San Francisco over the four years I have been here. Cold, dreary, and for those like me, infinitely inspirational. I wrote, recorded, mixed and mastered, and created a cover and video for this leak in under 3 hours. And so, this is what you get for those three, enjoy, and remember, word of mouth is my best friend. Thank you. -Gus Cutty

The first line is probably one of the nerdiest lines in rap history.” This is the first of a series of “Sour Baby Leaks”.

“People don’t come out to the bar and drink to hear you moan and bitch about a lot of stuff. A little bit of that peppered throughout is fine, but we definitely know how to take the right songs, the live ones, the hotter songs off the album, and kill the party with them.” – Foul Mouth Jerk

Origins Of Gurp #2

Posted by TheMayor

For this second installment of  Origins of Gurp we are going to go back  and take a glimpse at S.F. vet TOPR aka TOP RAMEN. I first met Topr in 1996 at my favorite venue that is no longer, Maritime Hall in San Francisco. He would be ripping fools to shreds in battles, while working no less, or opening up for major acts with his crew The Earthlings. I would be screaming “Vacaville” from the front row which he took notice of and began incorporating into his freestyles and a friendship was born. I was always telling him that heads for ready and he needed to drop a tape to sell. In 1999 he finally did and the DONUT HUSTLAZ e.p. was released.

Produced entirely by Non Phenom the beats have a great vibe only heard in hip hop from this era. To my knowledge this is the only project Non Phenom was ever involved in which is a shame because he was a talented producer.

At this time TOPR was known mostly for being an incredible battle MC destroying all competion and for the energetic performances with The Earthlings throughout the bay area. This e.p. shows his ability to be a great writer with substance and emotion in his lyrics, not just another battle rapper who can’t make magic in the studio. This album is the spark  that ignited one of the best rappers to ever emerge from the bay area.

 Limited edition cover from Below The Surface, notice hustler being misspelled, shout out to Kegs One for selling me that back in the day. This album is available for purchase on i-tunes via Gurp City Digital.  Here is a taste :03 metaphorenzies 

Hope you enjoy.

Origins of Gurp

Posted by TheMayor

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.
