It seems to me these past few years have been a time for Bay Area hip hop to truly shine. However, with E-40 approaching 50 years young, the seemingly quiet demise of Lil B, and an exodus that includes promising up and comer Roach Gigz, is the Bay Area rap stock taking a turn for the worse? Two words would indicate otherwise: SWTBRDS and Davinci. The former is an indie label based in the Bay that has an ear worthy of scientific study, these guys more than have their finger on the pulse. The latter, Davinci, is on the label and is ready for national exposure. Like the Giants, perhaps it’s not time to count the Bay out quite yet. The highly-anticipated album, MOEna Lisa, drops in October, the 7th I believe. This track is the third single released, in the tradition of Kendrick’s The Recipe.
