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.

Yep, He finally did it…

the 40 oz show: 02.14.07…

Posted by Max

Listen to The 40 Oz Show, bitches!

This week’s show fell on Valentine’s Day, and I didn’t play a single song about love, lust, bitches or hoes. You may think I’m slippin’ — seriously, how tough is it to slip Biz Markie’s “Just A Friend” into the mix? Fuck that. And fuck this Hallmark Holiday. But if you must have something in the way of a V-Day acknowledgment, consider this week’s show my special gift to you. Feel the love, bitches.

Leak of the Week: E-Rok Remixes.

Posted by Thuggy



erok serial gawkers gurp city

I woke up the day after the Gurp City ART & Music thing and was going thru my jacket pockets when i found a CDr labeled Hour Long + UnCut. It was a little hazy but I began to remember getting the cd from Erok of Serial Gawkers fame, he said it was some new beats and remixes he was workin on and whatnot and for me to check it out and let him know what i thought. Well I was bumpin it the other day and I was feelin a couple of his remixes. One, a funky interpretation of biggies “Kick in the Door” and the other a mainey ass remix of Snoop’s “Drop it Like its Hot”. If you want copy of the cd or would like to collabo with Erok on any future projects holler at him at the Serial Gawkers Myspace page or email

Listen to The 40 Oz Show, bitches!

Here’s this week’s show, 02.07.07. I missed last week — the first time I’ve missed a weekly show in about four months. It was due to a lot of travel and a lot of work and a lot of sickness. It couldn’t be helped. But everything is back on track now. Click the boombox-bagged 40 above to download the whole show. To see the play list and subscribe to the podcast, click here

Luke Sicks Diary entry from the 2007 Gurp City Art & Music Fest

Posted by Thuggy

Luke Sick Sacred Hoop Gurp City
Dear Diary Feb. 3, 2007 GCAMF II
I showed up with “Gurp City Girls” and “GurpScouts” stickers. And they were both big hits. It was definitely the night of the GurpScouts. People were hella looking out for each other’s gurp, and everybody was hella trying to earn malt liquor merit badges
by double-fisting $6 forties of Olde E like they were playing Edward Forty-hands. Early in the dusk at Space Gallery, Marz (the gracious host of the event who consumed 2 forties before 8 pm and spent the rest of the night verging on black out—you gotta love this guy!) started cooking the boiled hot dogs that would serve as our sustenance. Did anybody notice the pair on the bartender downstairs at Space Gallery? Now that’s my kind of art! Topr called in NASA and got his teeth fixed! Conceit you next!
Here’s a rundown of the performances: Read More »

Topper, Bootleg, Foulmouth Jerk, and Conceit AKA “The Carney Lansford of Rap” are bringing the Alcoholics Unanimous Tour to the top left hand corner of the country. If you need a reason to go you should do so to congratulate Topr, who just recently went to the dentist.

Luke Sick’s SF Gurp City ’06 Diary

Dear Gurp Diary,
February Fourth in the year of two thousand six was the Gurp City Art and Rap Show. It started off in some rad little yuppie art space off Cesar Chavez across from Kelley-Moore Paint. The space is owned by this cool ass lawyer dude (who we later found out is a kick ass DJ as well). DJ Marz (who organized the whole event) had provided the art viewing public with ten large jugs of Carlos Rossi and some two buck chuck for the ungurp-affiliated. Marz also had the infamous “X-mas Liquor” on hand to make us all feel like we were drinking pruno up in D Pod. All the art was sick, and people got drunk off the wine and store bought tall cans and forties and smoked pot on the roof. Oaty Love who DJed a set, and also DJed the front room the whole night later at the Hemlock, had his son and a friend running around on roller states or Read More »

UPDATE: Click here to see pics from the TopR/Sacred Hoop show in Minneapolis
Thanks to Skell For the pics I’ve been told there may be more to come from the Minneapolis show and even possibly some video. There’s a funny addition from Skell regarding Toppers near missed flight home in the comments after Luke’s summary. As well as more from Luke Sick himself…

Skell Writes:
Just to top it off, it’s 8pm the next night (sun) i’ve been sleeping for a few hours then i am awaken by loud footsteps comming up the stairs to my room. the door busts open with TOPR still on GURP saying “i just broke into your girls house”. Front door was locked so he cut the screen of the bathroom window before he thought “maybe there is a back door”. he came in the back door. now his flight leaves in 1 1/2 hours and his id is missing. i’m thinking “now we have a house guest that will be going home greyhound in a couple days”. he finds his id in the last place he looks in his other pants. we drive to the airport hopeing he will catch his flight. we send him off with his crusty black wine lips and his dried up blood buger on his shirt. good luck the plane was delayed. as Molly and i drove off i was telling her “i would love to see the expression on Quest and Luke’s faces as TOPR rolls in”. Thanks alot to TOPR, Luke Sick, and DJ Quest for an amazing night! UP THE PUNKS DOWN THE BEER!

Luke Sick Writes:
hey thuggy here’s another myspace email we got after the show:
Infinite Human’s sister wrote:
What’s up? I heard through the grapevine that Aliatron was selling merch @ your show in minneapolis, Is she traveling with you guys, or do you know her whereabouts? my bro (infinate) has been MIA since he went to your show at triple rock and I’m trying to find him before a missing persons report is made. So if there is any way for you to reach her or him I’d greatly appreciate it. Please get back @ me.
Thanks Kindly,

That’s the truth about what it do…

UPDATE: I guess they found homie a few days later. This is probably why Z-Man calls it “Maineyapolis”
