Sorry I’ve been sleepin’ the past week on these posts, been a busy time for me and its only gonna get busier, but I got a lot I want to share with y’all. Tons of a great sites that support Bay Are Hip Hop
This week: Thizzler on the Roof!
What it is: A blog that is aimed to promote new/upcoming/lesser-heard artists from all over the Bay Area. Features new singles, music videos and other whatnot from artists such as The Jacka, Mistah F.A.B., DaVinci, Roach Gigz, Erk tha Jerk, Zion I, J. Stalin and much more!
Why you check it out: Not only for the new music, for helping hard-working local artists get more exposure, but also for the unique Under the Bay Interview series run by the website’s founder Em Dub. They are already at episode #46 and its a really cool way to get the know the artists. Here is the latest one with Oakland emcee GQ
I was lucky to not only meet Em Dub, but I also interviewed him on my radio show last week promoting his show last weekend, the first ever Under the Bay concert.
Check out this interview I did, and visit his website, a very cool place for everything thizz, fo shizzle!
Stefan Goldstone (a.k.a. DJ Sake 1) is coming straight out of the Fillmore district in San Francisco where “Sake 1” was first created as a graffiti pseudonym, or “tag name.” He graduated from Washington high school, went on to complete his undergraduate studies at UC Santa Cruz and has since then received his MBA in social welfare from UC Berkeley. He currently lives in the Mission and volunteers for Caduceus Outreach services which provides mental health treatment for homeless adults. Sake is also close to completing a yearlong initiation process in becoming a santero, or priest of Elegua in the Lucumi religion that has a strong historical following in such countries as Cuba and Venezuela.
What’s good with the interviews? This is a good way for us to bridge out more to the active Hiphop community.
