  • Bay Area > NY, So Why Do They Get Slept On???

    here's a little review of 2005:
    living legends releases a dope album - nobody cares.
    zion i releases a dope album - nobody cares.
    opio releases a dope album - nobody cares.
    lyrics born releases a dope album - nobody cares.
    blackalicious releases a beyond dope album - nobody cares.
    alias releases a dope (though not so "hip-hop") album - nobody cares.

    come on guys, there's other rappers out there besides cage and slug.... if you dont like any of the artists i mentioned above, could you please explain why? i consider them all great artists, especially zion i and blackalicious, both of their albums were "hot fiya". in my opinion bay area is killin shit right now...

    and i know ny is 1000000x better than bay area overall, but this year i've enjoyed more albums from bay area underground rappers than i have from new york underground rappers.

    im from the Bay ARea kid, killa Cali and i just dont understand why these fools dont get anylove. granted NY is the MECCA of this rap shit but damn!!!!! yo Marksmen you right heads need to stop with obvious picks of Cage, SLug, JMT(my fav. undrgrd group) and give a good listen to the west coast YADDDDIDDDAMEAN!!!! it's for this reason that EVERYBODY thinks the westcoast has fell off just because no New "GANGSTA" mainstreem acts have come on the seen...What people tend to overlook and realize that ZION I, the whole HYROgliph sguad, blackalicious, yukmouth, mac dre have been pushin units underground since PAC and BIG Poppa were alive. anyway im biased cuz im born and raised YAY Area representative so yall should just give the west coast a fair listen and open mind.

    im out like patrick ewings knees

    OH BOY!!!!

          the bay area does get slept on but in no way is it better than NY

          AZ just released an amazing album, ofcourse we know about cage and aesop, there's also NAS and many other rappers.... NY is where Hip Hop began and at the end of the day its where hip hop is. I do agree the bay area does get slept on but in no way is it better than NY.

            I still listen to Zion I's album, even after all this time. I even took the initiative to go out, look for it, and buy the retail because it was so good. I'm feeling MURS more than anybody right now though. I don't really know my California geography but is Mid City close to bay area?

            In any case I wouldn't say that 1 place is better or worse for hip hop, great CDs have been coming out of all sorts of different cities in the past few years.

              well for one thing Marksman, i really am not feelin any of those groups lately. you listed kind of a bunch of softer shit there, zion i, blackalicious and such. since you brought up the comparison, cage as an artist knocks them all down.
              but that being said, i agree with you, there's no much fuckin talent in the bay area, from what yukmouth and crew is doing, to planet asia in oakland, to brotha lynch here in sac. so ya i agree with you on that one, i guess it's because the bay area is still growing as a rap scene. i think it's because there hasn't been any one, big name to unite the scene. like new york has always had these just rap gods that have basically cemented the scene there, and the bay area still hasn't really had one face to put on it all.
              but the key is to unite all the up and coming next generation of rappers in the bay area, which is kinda what i'm trying to do as a producer. get them all under the same flag, doin shit with each other, and you get an unstoppable force. there's plenty of talent for it, that goes without sayin, it's just a matter of marketing and shit. it sucks that rap nowadays is based off marketing, but that's just the way it is.

                im talking about in terms of underground albums coming out this year, bay area has been better than new york in releasing quality albums imo.
