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.

Luke Sick’s Blurry Recollection of the Reno Show…

Posted by Thuggy

Sorry kids, this one kinda fell through the cracks but here you go anyways. Better late than never, right?

LUKE SICK writes:

The strip club in a double-wide that G-Pek has been bragging about is not a myth. I’ve seen it with my own eyes, shit, I’ve gone dumb on top of a rental in the parking lot of that place, bumpin’ 2 Live Crew’s “S&M” on 11. What he didn’t tell you is that the double-wide connects to the brothel next door thru a filthy underground corridor that joins the two buildings. Fuckin’ Carson City. I spent like five bucks total in that dump (I’m very particular about my ones). Thanks for the drinks Mammal, and thanks for getting us kicked out of every spot we went to that night. I ended up in Carson City, in a shitkicker bar, ripping rhymes into a plastic mic over what seemed to be the same PA they used on MASH to hyphy beats for like 4 Surrenos and their girlfriends, while Mammal thru flimsy metal bar stools around, and the Asian bartender said he went to high school with Conceit. it was a trip. And that was the night before the show! Read More »

Brandon B was the heavy favorite to take the crown early in the game but as you can see all that drank caught up with him.

And would you expect anything less from M.C. Oroville.

Its Going Down in RENO THIS SAT!!!

Posted by Thuggy

[mp3]http://www.gurpcity.net/stash/spit_specialist_(rough_mix).mp3[/mp3]

If theres any possibility for you to hit Reno NV this Saturday I highly recommend that you make it out to the The Tortoise Rising Show Being put on by the big homie Stacks Malone. G Pek met up with Stacks a while back and the two have been plottin big thangs for Reno area gurpers in the near future. Fist off this Sat at the Record Street Cafe Stacks is having an art opening where he’s going to be selling tons of dope art along side the beat backdrops of DJ’s G-Pek, Caserock and Borg One. As for the Hip Hop portion of the night Hiero’s Opio is a sure shot to put on a dope show but with Gurp City’s finest slated to open, our boys just might steal the show. Z-Man, G-Pek, Luke Sick and TopR will be in full effect so bring your girlfriends and leave the handcuffs at home. Odds are on Luke Sick to lose the farm at the roulette table around 4:30am. For more information about the show hit up Stacks Malone at his myspace page.

The 40 Oz Show: 06.06.07…THE SUMMER JAMS SHOW

Posted by Max

Listen to The 40 Oz Show, bitches!

Here it is — The SUMMER JAMS edition of The 40 Oz Show for the first full week of June, a little something to get you in the summer mood.

For the record, this show was not as easy to put together as I had initially thought. There were three basic rules to determining what constitutes a summer jam:

  • the song or album had to have been released sometime in June, July or August

…OR…

  • the song or album title had to have the word “summer” in it

…OR…

  • the song had to be obviously, unmistakably about the summer

On top of that, the song had to have some resonance as a summer jam, something in the sound of the music that harkens to summer, and/or some history as a “classic” summer jam; there are plenty of songs that came out during the summer or have “summer” in the title that still aren’t the least bit summer-y.

Ultimately, I realized how subjective all this can be. I also realized that there are some great summer mixes out there on the internet — way better than this one — so I tried not to take it too seriously and just have fun with it.

In the end, for better or worse, here’s The 40 Oz Show’s Summer Jams Edition. Enjoy it with your favorite cold beverage…

  • Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince, “Summertime,” Homebase (Jive)
  • UGK, “The Game Belongs To Me,” Underground Kingz (Jive)
  • 213, “Another Summer,” The Hard Way (TVT)
  • Trick Daddy, “In Da Wind” feat. Cee-Lo & Big Boi, Thug Holiday (Atlantic)
  • Pigeon John, “I Lost My Job Again,” …And The Summertime Pool Party (Quannum)
  • Federation, “18 Dummy,” 12″ (Reprise)
  • Ice Cube, “My Summer Vacation,” Death Certificate (Priority)
  • E-40, “Carlos Rossi,” Federal (Sick Wid It)
  • Beyonce, “Summertime” Remix feat. Ghostface Killah, 12″ (Sony)
  • Clipse, “When The last Time,” Lord Willin’ (Star Trak)
  • Turk Talk, “Bring The Base Back,” West Coast Vaccine (The Cure) (Sick Wid It)
  • Jay-Z, “Brooklyn’s Finest” feat. The Notorious B.I.G., Reasonable Doubt (EMI)
  • JT Tha Bigga Figga, “Zeniths In The Summertime,” Puttin’ It On The Map (SMC)
  • Mos Def & Esthero, “Summer Time,” DJ Revolution & Total Eclipse: Draft Radio Vol. 1 (Draft)
  • Snoop Dogg, “It Ain’t No Fun (If The Homies Can’t Have None)” feat. Nate Dogg, Warren G & Kurupt, Doggy Style (Priority)
