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.

Exclusive Preview: Slot Machine Slappers from the Oakland Faders

Posted by Dap1

With residencies almost every night of the week throughout the Bay Area, the Oakland Faders have established themselves as a staple in the Bay Hip Hop community. The Oakland Faders got together in 1994 and has since gone on to win numerous competitions and awards including Scion Free Up Your Mix, URB magazine’s mixtape competition, a Mixwell competition, toured internationally, and have shared a bill with everyone from M.F Doom to Maseo to Melvin Sparks to Madlib to Mixmaster Mike to Marvin Holmes. Connect the dots and you will understand why the Faders are keeping the lost art of hip hop scratch and sample djing alive.

DJ Spair and DJ Platurn have just added another mix to their arsenal of 16+ catalog, Slot Machine Slappers. The Faders have been nice enough to grace GurpCity.net with a preview of their upcoming album. Stay tuned for info on where you can grab a copy.

MATT LOOMIS IS A F#@KING BEAST!!!

Posted by Thuggy

No Gurp City groups are playing this event. However, Gurp City fine artist extraordinaire Matt Loomis has absolutely killed it on this flyer for an upcoming High On Fire show in Chico CA. Also on the card is sonic crushers The Makai, a group featuring ex-Gurp City roommate B-Huge on the vocals. This show is going to destroy downtown Chico. Anyone who wants to give Matt Loomis lots of money and make him famous should do so now before its too late.

King of the Burbs…

Posted by Thuggy

Did you watch VH1s The White Rapper show? Its hard being King of the Burbs right? Well if you haven’t been up in the message boards for a while maybe you should go check it out. Gurp City homie Homonym, former MC/producer for the now defunct Davis hip hop crew Jaded MCs has recently posted a track he did with the man who is “…not a rapper” but is “an entity.” Apparently Homonym and John Brown recorded this track over a year ago when he still lived in Davis, go check it out and leave him some feedback. Meanwhile Lets hope that the “Ghetto Revival” prevails. As the Mayor of Gurp City would say John, “Get yo Paper Rellie!!!”

Ed and Z played this past Friday at 111 Minna. Thanks to DJ Stef for taking pics and proving once again that if Luke Sick shows up and isn’t performing he’ll likely be the drunkest cat at the show.
