Bailey: Mostly known for his hit “Fuck Yo Couch,” San Quinn’s little brother is rising rapidly thanks to his freshly inked deal with City Boyz Muzik and partnership with J. Valentine, a Bay Area R&B singer signed to J Records.

Droop-E: Producer behind such huge hits as “Super Sic Wit It,” this 17-year old prodigy is making waves on his own, never mind the fact that E-40 is his pops.

Frontline: The Richmond-bred duo made headlines with the instant classic “What Is It?,” produced by E-A-Ski, while MC Locksmith caught momentum from finishing in 2nd at MTV’s 2003 freestyle competition.

    It’s begun. The world will now realize what we’ve known for years, the Bay runs shit. The pride runs deep in my vains, forgive me if I’m a tad cocky, but now it’s our turn. From legends like Forty Water and the classic tracks of Andre Hicks to the newest hyphy slaps, we will explode onto the scene and provide you with the tracks to get stupid doodoo dumb to, the rap world will all convert to Nation of Thizzlam. And that’s my word…

    I’m glad to see Cali getting some love from the media. I live in Louisiana, but I like Cali music. Hopefully people like Zion I can benefit from this whole wave of popularity for the west coast and bay area. It’s good to see E-40 and Yukmouth getting national attention. They been doing their thing for a long while not only for the bay area, but for hip hop as well…

  • dZ

    >nobody gives a fuck about the
    >bay except the niggas in the bay
    >yall niggas can never be like L.A.

    Come on, man. Have you checked your LA playlists lately? NO LA MUSIC IN THE TOP TEN (E-40′s in there though). You guys don’t even rep your own music.

    Have you checked Snoop’s lingo? STRAIGHT BAY. Everything you’ve said in the last week was probably from the Bay. FA SHIZZLE?

    The only time I ever hear LA music anymore is while I’m in LA. I’m not hatin’, I love some LA shit too. Why you tryin’ to hate? Can’t show some fellow west coast people love? You got Snoop’s dick so far down your mouth you can’t give the Bay some props?

    And what the fuck is “hiffy”? Don’t they teach reading comprehension in LA?

  • http://aladd1n1 dZ

    >yall niggas can never be like L.A.
    >YALL WILL FOREVER JUST BE IN OUR

    Come to think about it, with New York and the South running the charts right now, LA isn’t even CASTING a shadow, and that’s realtalk.

  • dZ

    And lastly, The Game (your hottest product out) wouldn’t be in the position he’s in right now WITHOUT the Bay. Look “The Game” up on Wiki and Google, you’ll see the boy JT the Bigga Figga gave him his start. JT put that boy on, which led to his signing with Aftermath. Ever heard of Black Wall Street? Game borrowed that shit from my boy JT. Game recognize game, pimp!

    im from sacramento and im glad that the hyphy shit is poppin right now. but to honest i dont know about niggas in other region feeling our shit. i live in atlanta and niggas is lighweight laughing at our shit. some love it though but i guess it takes time. i think its too many niggas in the bay making hyphy music though. we just need a few hot artists to promote it, not every nigga in the yay. e40, keak, mistah fab and maybe the federation. the rest of them dudes is one hit wonders if that. we need someone to come out with a hot album, not just one hyphy song with the rest of the album being trash

    “I’m just sticking and moving, ya know,” says E-40 of his role in the movement, “I helped birth the Hyphy movement along with the other Bay Area rappers because that’s where it originated. It started in the streets and I’m just adding to it. I’m just doing my part. Hyphy ain’t all that I do, but I go to bat for it 100 percent. The youngsters brought that in, not the rappers. We’re just the novelists and the voice of it. It’s a dance and it’s a culture. There are different phases of the Hyphy movement. It starts off with the dance and builds around that and these youngsters are building more around it everyday.”

  • A’s Fitted On

    Fuck yall who be hatin on the Bay. It’s not old school but what is old school nowadays. The rap game has changed and the Bay is back yadadamean. Peeps saying the Bay sucks when they got a few 2pac CD’s in their collection or noddin their heads to some $hort Dog or playin song of other artist that was produced by Rick Rock. Check out his resume if you don’t know. Bitches better do their homework, cuz the Bay has many styles…from Pimp shit like Too $hort (after him, everybody say they are a pimp in their records), to deep hip hop lyrics like the Hieros, etc. To the first Hip Hop Pop star Hammer (if you are a youngin saying Hammer sucks when you were only a little baby when he was hot, fuck what you heard. That wasn’t your music…your shit was Barney songs on TV.) Mac Dre to us in the Bay is like Big L was in NY. King of the south ain’t T.I. his shit is wick wick wack. Plus that’s just a bite off of “King of NY”‘s hip hop crown. Stop bitin shit foo’s. And when did Texas become a southern state…WTF?!?! Sorry fools, it’s the southwest, listen to Scarface. He say’s southwest…this uneducated cats think it’s the dirty dirty. We’ll tell peeps like Nelly and Common they might as well say they are from the East Coast. Bay rappers don’t start some fake ass beef (Mike Jones vs. Chamaillione vs Paul Wall or Lil Flip Vs TI) just to sell more records. We just get hyphy like it or not. Don’t hate, masterbate.

  • Spontaneuscombustion

    Fuck NYSTREETS, come to Cali and I’ll kill you like Biggie. Cali has been doing it for many moons foo. Too Short rappin about pimpin and bitches and others followed. NWA and Ice T started that gangsta shit and peeps copied. Cypress Hill started rappin about smoking and fools copied that shit. 2Pac says his Thug in his lyrics and now everybody say they thug. You don’t have to like hyphy shit. Stick with your Brokeback Mountain Mixtape shit. NY rappers and Hip Hop heads come out here to the bay and they say they love it here more than LA. The Bay feels more like home to them than LA. Speaking of that fool that yappin about LA is better than the Bay. Man fool, you better take down that Black Eyed Peas poster above your bed and recognzie game in the bay. I see some cats on here don’t know about Da Bay saying we won’t be as hot as places like…Houston? You must be a youngin’ cuz do you homework, the bay has deep Hip Hop/ Rap history. Houston is doin it right now just like St. Louis was a couple years back. You don’t have to like Hyphy or other shit. But the more opened minded you are, the futhur you’ll get in life.

  • Hip Hop Educator

    I don’t feel all hyphy songs but people got to realize that not all the music coming out of the Bay Area is not all about being hyphy just like not all music in the ATL is about being crunk. Both are party music but both areas still have their underground rap and hip hop sounds (gangsta to hip hop roots sounds). The Bay Area has always been there, it’s just that the Hyphy Movement is making noise. RIP to Mac Dre. And yes he is to the Bay what Big L was to NY.

  • http://XXL Kookie

    First of all I was born in the bay(right on Newcomb, Mt. Zion Hospital) but raised in L.A. (Los Angeles don’t get it twisted not Louisiana)Long Beach to be exact. Anywho I’ve got love for both west coast cities, but the bay could never compare to L.A. I mean these cats up here in the bay are cool, but it just seems to me that they are wanna be’s. There could never be another N.W.A. or Ice Cube or DJ Quik or MC Eight or Eric “Eazy E” Wright. (just to name a few) Those cats right there are the true legends of west coast rap. Don’t get me wrong the bay has had their share of superb cats like Digital Underground, and Tu (who by the way is originally from New york. For the cat who said that he’s from the bay, not) I’m just saying show L.A. a little bit of the wealth too. Cause’ ya know we keep it gangsta.

  • Dat Dood

    Yup, cats from the East Coast and the Dirty Dirty love Da Bay. East Coasters say the Bay Reminds them of home cuz of it’s metropolitan area with bridges, etc. Yall don’t get it twisted, like the Educator said not all songs from the bay is Hyphy, we still got some shit to ride to and to smoke to. Hyphy is our party music getting buck wild in the streets to the club and back out to the streets again. You can hear us bangin hyphy from Daygo to the Bay. It’s all West Side love from Daygo, Sactown, LA, OC, Vegas, Da Bay, etc. So I don’t know about LA fools on here be trying to raindown on the bay, when your hottest group in hip hop is the Black Eyed Peas. Another cat that calls the Bay their second home is Master P., shit the Richmond streets was his daddy. Look at Hip Hop/Rap nowadays it’s mostly party music. But fools here clownin on Hyphy when yalls be bumpin shit like Laffy Taffy….in the words of the Great Too $hort “Biiiiitch”.

    Okay Hoe Roaster it’s obvious that I have to take it down a notch to your understanding with you being ignorant and all. First, I’m a strong black Female not a boy. Second, who gives a fuck about the raiders. I’ve never been a raider fan, even when they were in LA and I’m pretty sure most of LA feels the same. And Third, all bay area nigga’s and Sac town nigga’s are just LA wannabe’s. You can sit there and deny it all you want but I see the shit everyday. You see I now reside in south sac and to me it’s pretty damn pittyful to see these nigga’s walking around trying to be hard when they really ain’t.

  • Nasty-Nez

    Tsk tsk and u wonder why so many folks think the hip-hop community ain’t nothin but a bunch of untalented, uneducated, thugs and menaces to society with all the ignorance some of yall spittin on here. GOOD MUSIC IS GOOD MUSIC regardless of where it’s from. I could go on and on but for those who were saying that The Bay will NEVER be as popular in the rap game as LA and especially NY – you may be right but only because of THIS:

    Where are all the major record labels, and television studios located? NY and LA. So if u’s an executive livin in either hood – what are u gonna hear all the time? The folks makin noise at home. It ain’t rocket science, it’s common sense and street knowledge…which some of yall are posin to have. Folks and execs payin attention to the Bay are smart for capitalizin on something NEW.

  • IKI

    I love the Bay Area scene but how in the fuck you gonna get at Yukmouth fuck him his career is over Game proved that & now you got Spider tryin’ to prove it & he probably will. Pukemouth that’s more like it.

  • blaze

    The bay area rap scene has been around a very long time and seems to finally be getting the recognition it has long deserved. So many great rappers have come from that area some mentioned above and others not. One rapper who never gets mentioned or gets props is Mac Mall, Mac Mall is one of my favorite rappers and has been for years. All his albums are the shit and he’s been around since the early 90′s. I’m from the Detroit area and no one has really ever heard of him. This motherfucker can rap and not just that he can tell stories as well when he’s rapping which I don’t think to may rappers do. Also one last thing Young Lay was tight as hell to. I know unfortunatly he is serving a 12 year sentence for armed robbery. That shit that happened with his son being kidnapped and found years later was really fucked up. I can’t wait for him to get out and drop some new shit. There should be some campaign to free Young Lay like they had for Pimp C. It seems as if everyone forgot about him and let him fall off. So I’ll say it now FREE YOUNG LAY!!!!!!! Message to the Bay keep comin with that good shit and motherfuckers will listen.

    IKI you are fuckin retarded yukmouth is like the best and hardest rapper in the bay. game got murdered by yukmouth, thanks to yukmouth the game is weakened to exposure in beef, go watch beef 3, listen to game over part 1 and 2.

    and spider loc is a bitch, he pulled a gun on yuk wit six niggas and yuk was byhimself sucker punched him and took his chain and ran and then he lied about it, sayin he beat his ass, and then u see yuk get his chain back and no marks on his face ur an idiot stop riding spiders dick, and spiders bitch ass had a show in oakland( YUKMOUTHS HOME TOWM) and spider cancelled it and sai yukmouth cried to the raido station and got it cancelled that doesnt make sense he would blow money cause of that, and trust me spider loc would be dead if he had that show in oakland cause niggas were ready to take his head off

BUT IF U HONESTLY THINK IM GON POP KEAK ALBUM IN WHILE IM DRIVIN, AND TRY TO FIGURE OUT WHAT HE SAYIN, U GOT LIFE BACCWARDS. THE SAME WAY LIL JON GOT THA CRUNK MOVEMENT CRACCIN, THESE RECORD EXECS BOUT TO DRY THE BAY OUT WITH THIS MOVEMENT, WHAT ABOUT WHEN PEOPLE TIRED OF GOIN STUPID, THEN WHAT THE BAY GON RELY ON. I THINK THIS HYPHY SHIT AINT MUSIC, ITS HINDERIN REAL ARTIST AND MC’S FROM DOIN THEY THANG. ITS LIKE IF U CANT SHAKE YA DREADS TO IT, IT;S WACC. WHERE HAS HIP HOP GONE? YALL DIDNT MENTION MAC MALL, SPICE 1, C-BO, I MEAN REAL NIGGAS FROM UP NORTH (CELLY CELL) BUT I GUESS YALL DIDNT MENTION THEM B-CUZ THEY AINT RECORDED NO HYPHY MUSIC, THEY WAY 2 “G” LIKE FOR THE GIMMIC RAPS. SEE YADAMEAN! ANY WAYS LOOK OUT FOR SOME UNCOMPROMISED MUSIC FROM LOS ANGELES BY MY NICCA GLASSES MALONE( MR. 1.7 MILLION WIT SONY) BISHOP LAMONT SIGNED TO AFTERMATH, AND LAST OF THE MOHICANS MR.

    Look here, to that ignoranus BINO who wrote his 1 cent of thought on here: You obviously don’t know shiiiaaatt bout this hyphy movemement. This ain’t no overnight thang here patna……we BEEN getting stupid, dumb, retarded in the yay for like 7-8 years now. Just cuz y’ll slowpokes out there in southern cal can’t get it don’t mean it bangin’. And that shit bout not mentioning REAL niggaz from the yay, on the reals, Celly Cel, Spice 1 and C-bo ain’t had a hit in a WHILE so just cuz yo ass stuck in the 90′s along wit yo Chronic 2001 album, don’t get mad when we up here keeping it movin and know what the streets want. This MOVEMEMENT ain’t going nowhere and its still gon get slapped hard cuz its whats knockin.

    And one more thang……all music from the yay ain’t all hyphy or thizz music. This is just a sample of whats going on out here. We diverse mayne, we ain’t tryin to get one particular label on us cuz we get real artists out here. From e-40 to Frontline to San Quinn to Goapele to Brotha Lynch Hung to Keisha Cole to Mac Dre to Keak da Sneak, whatever you need!! Yadidimean!!!! What IISSSS ITT!!!

  • http://WWW.MYSPACE.COM/BINOBROWN BINO

    preach! if the hyphy movement been goin on 4 7-8 years, i cant tell. the only nigga makin noise from the bay in the last 20 years is 40 water and short! million dollar spot, sprinkle me,i could go on for days and name songs and albums from these two niggas, and the whole record aint hyphy like 40 new shit. im a 40 fan to death, but it jus seemed like he went too hyphy on his album. every song got go, go ,go,go,go in the background ad lib by keak. that’s jus like, let’s sy jay-z, if he rapped regular, then all of a sudden some kinda dope boy movement went on in tha n.y.c and jay come back wit his nex album and all of the songs is talkin bout dope thats wack, fans deserve more than that. wether or not yall from tha same town or not. stayin hood is stayin hood, at least in L.A. anyways aint no biggie, we all tryna get rich. and as far as c-bo, spice 1, the clck,dru down,these niggs might not have no hits now , but beleive me bruh they the reason the bay is where its at right now, they jus cant benefit off of it cuz yall niccas is stupid! excuse me, “going stupid” going “dumb dumb”

  • there would BINO u witout the bay!!!

    Ey BINO, do some research homie before you get on here and put doen nothin but ignorance. 40 said it himself…..the reason he’s been a successful artist for so long is cuz he keep his ear to the streets. That means he don’t get outdated cuz he stay in tune wit whats going on in the streets. That said, why would 40 push this hyphy movement if it wasn’t gonna get other artists in the door? He ain’t the one taking credit for this shit, he helping push this shit. What you may not get is this ain’t no gimmick here……fools selling 750,000 IN THE BAY ALONE!!! WE happy that this mevement is touching other ppl in other parts of the world but believe me “bruh”, we don’t give a FUCK whether no one else outside the Yay feel it. Cuz we don’t expect yall to. This music is the soundtrack to life out here, ain’t no game. We ain’t JUST talking bout gangbangin and drinking 40s and fuckin hoes and how this color dance is compared to this color dance.

    Whos the hottest artist y’ll got in S CAL? The GAME? Member, he got his start in the BAY w/ J T the bigga figga. ” WEST UP ” L-O-F-L

Rick Rock has the Federation and Eldorado Red coming out with CDs. Rick Rock and the Federation is also fuckin with the drummer from Blink 182. Too Short is steady as ever.

    Bay area? The only 2 I’l give credit to are E-40 and Too short. And frankly, they can’t cut it. Bay area bullshit, these guys are ruining hip hop thinking they represent the west. The TRUE HISTORY of hip hop comes from L.A. and NY. Back to the glory days of Tupac and Biggie. These bullshit rappers can’t cut shit.

  • bayarea_mexican

    someguyinachair you fuckin idiot, pac came from the bay, performed his first song ever at his high school in Marin. you fuckin idiot, san quinn has deadly lyrics along with yukmouth, when it comes to lyrics the bay is highly under-rated, they think oh too short and E-40, they aint nothin, too short and E-40 had one of the most impact on hip hop, if it wasnt for them the game wouldnt be the same

    Too Short is a fuckin pioneer of pimpin, snoop dogg bit his whole pim style

    E-40 is a pioneer of all the slang and swagger you see in hip hop

    and digital underground are pioneers of club and party music, and guess who started with them faggot thats right tupac

    fuck the bay area and your fagot ass music. at least in southern california we’re not afraid to stick with our style without making ourselves look like a bunch of dumbasses. unlike your phony ass sponge bob backpack wearin bullshit. the real ogs down in la during the late 80′s and early 90′s started gangsta rap, for any of you gay area mothafuckas who don’t know their shit. some of you punk bitches talk as if you’ve made rap history with all this too short and mac dre shit, but no mothafucka on the face of this earth will ever remember you local garbage ass bitches. every single raggedy ass gay area fuck thats been talking on this stupid forum has said “come to the bay”. shit FUCK THAT, why don’t you sorry ass tricks come to our hoods in so cal and see wassup with your bitch asses. you fucking norteno fags think you’re so tough then how come i’ve never seen a fucking norteno come down to la because you know ya’ll know you’ll get fucking dropped and scraped in an instant with your lame asses. another thing with you weak ass norcal mothafuckas, quit saying blood and cuhz like it’s another part of your lingo because walk down the wrong block in la yappin that shit and you’ll probably get your ass popped by them bgs or ygs. fuck the fagot ass gay area, their pussy ass music, and any mothafucka down with their sorry shit. keep sucking on so cal’s nuts you lame fucks. hahahaha ridin the yellow bus hahhaha what kind of retarded kindergarten shit is that. no wonder why so cal and other major cities don’t like this so called hyphy movement because the bastards who live up there are so full of themselves like their shit don’t stink. kiss my mothafucking ass and suck on a dog’s dick you arrogant narrow-minded mothafuckas. at least so cal ain’t trying to be like new york, you wannabe ass east coast rejects with your fake east coast cities like san fagcisco and chokeland. all you bitches up there are butt hurt since you get no fucking airplay and are wack as fuck. I know what the fuck is down because i used to live up in that boring shithole they call bay area. FUCK HYPHY and MOTHAFUCK YOU WEAK DICK RIDIN GAY AREA BITCHES and I’ll continue hatin on you fuckers with a passion.

  • Anonymous

    This shit is going to be comedy because I already know there’s going to be some sensitive ass butt hurt gay area pussies jumpin on my shit.go ahead and rant you bitches. I got no problem hatin on you punk mothafuckas and your shitty ass cities. Stick to your uneducated “yadada’s” and “hella” terms, I can’t stand you bitch mothafuckas. It’s like you norcal fags are irritating flies wherever I go. hahaha hyphy ain’t shit and that’s why 4 years later and none your shit is getting sales you broke ass untalented pieces of shit. stay local because that’s how far the gay area is going to get LOCAL. don’t expect the rest of the rap community to give your bitch asses respect especially since you’re making everything about california look bad you dumb fucks
