Danny from Sobrante
In the depths of East Oakland there is a notorious neighborhood that has produced some of the most violent and influential people in the underworld of the Bay Area. Throughout the madness Daniel Stith AKA Danny From Sobrante (Sobrante Park) has survived being an element of Sobrante Park and made it his mission to present to the world the truth about enduring the conditions of his foundation. His lyrical prowess and in-your-face style of rap convinced listeners that he is confident and not afraid to touch uncharted territory with his songs. He often rhymes to the ladies with sincerity and enthusiasm that lets you know he's experienced what he's talking about in addition DFS sprinkles political awareness and social consciousness feeding fans food for thought and triggering emotions. Currently, still an unsigned hype, his relentless effort at touching the hearts and souls come by way of "the care package" hosted by DJ Rah 2K. Along with a host of visuals and upcoming events Danny From Sobrante plans to make his grind evident in hip hop culture and establish a core fan base that pledges their allegiance with record sales. "The streets are mine!" DFS states with the swagger that makes you feel like you are in his house.

Nick Jame$'music represents his everyday life from grindin, family, women, smokin weed and much more. Nick has began to create a name in the Bay Area music scene, as well as, other cities and states in and out of the U.S.
You wanna know the definition of gas? Look no farther than East Oakland emcee Young Gully. Combining high octane lyricism with a wisdom acquired from years in the streets, Gully has built a reputation for "gassing" (Oakland slang for going hard) on every beat he touches. "Rappers have the voice of Oakland," says Gully - but unlike most Oakland rappers, he wants to use his voice to inspire the community, rather than perpetrate the same cycle of violence and drug abuse. "Oakland is a good city and it’s not just what’s on the news.But you can’t avoid the violence either."
Certain artists can transcend from strangers to vicarious big brothers to in just a few short lines. On “Easy,” Berkeley, California’s Symba raps, “All I thought in life was dollars / Never got to see Nirvana / Before my bitch looked like Madonna / I was just try’na make my father / Angry that he had left me for growin’ up, me and Mama / Was what forced me to look at rappers like ‘These niggas my father.’” Symba, which has stood for “Young King,” centuries before Disney’s animated protagonist, was certainly raised on the type of Hip-Hop that was unafraid to be brutally self-critical, evident in lines touching on mis-education and ambition at once. “The main thing I try to do is to talk about what I don’t like about myself more than what I like about myself,” explains the wise 23 year-old. “It gives insecurity its own type of voice. That way, they can see what I’m going through, and know they’re not alone.” That type of motivational music will be coming out late 2013 in the form of the New Jack City-inspired 5-song EP Young Nate Nino and in 2014 with the follow-up debut album II More Words, which features Nipsey Hussle, Mistah F.A.B, and Ray J, among others.
