JAG | 2700, Dalton Ave, Kapernick Effect, Battle Rap & ...

In this segment of our conversation with #JAG & Patrick we discuss JAG’s single Kapernick Effect – by far, one the most lyrically and visually powerful yet underrated pieces of art of 2018. Remarkably raw and compelling, Kapernick Effect is the type of joint that leaves a timeless message in the history of hip-hop. The kind of art that continues to inspire me and bars that put verbs into my sentences. We also spoke about the process of creating the ...

Legends Never Die

Good evening ladies and gentlemen. How’s everybody doing tonight? Last Saturday was one of the most festive nights in San Diego as people congregated in every boozy establishment to pay their respect to Saint Patrick. Some raggers paid so much homage to Pat, even the cops pulled up. Which made me wonder, why do people drop so much cash on admission fees to San Diego Zoo when there’s so much wildlife to observe for free in downtown. There’s just something ...

Ric Scales vs Knox Overstreet Rap Battle, May 21st, 2017

The more time I spend stopping around downtown San Diego the more I realize how much talent our community truly breeds, especially in the hip-hop scene. Just last Saturday I attended Biggie & Tupac Tribute Exhibit + Rap Battle at Just Another Gallery – a high end art gallery and glass art exhibition. The battle was hosted by Ramel J. Wallace, and was by far one of the most unique hip-hop events I have had the pleasure to be a part ...

This past weekend, Speaker Child & Andre Nickatina paid their sincerest homage to woman’s derrière by dropping their freshest music video for their single Phat Ass, produced by Roc Phizzle. The visuals definitely live up the the title and the bars are quite catchy as well, especially Nickatina’s hook: “phat ass…phat ass, no credit card bitch all cash, put the weed and the coke on car dash, jump right in make a big splash..”  I have had the pleasure of seeing Speaker Child and Nickatina ...

This past Friday, April 31st, Kosha Dillz came through Anaheim, CA on his first ever headlining tour OY VEY USA. And per usual, KD tore the club up and stole everyone’s hearts and attention with his typical witty bars and bottomless exuberance. As someone who came-up as a battle rapper, Kosha definitely knows how to turn up the crowd and make everyone laugh. I’ve personally had the pleasure seeing the Jewish Rapper perform on several occasions and I have to ...
