Watch & Listen
Mistah F.A.B., the Prince of the Bay, first got national attention when he was featured on MTV2's program My Block: The Bay Area. In this episode he introduced the Thizz movement along with other cultural Bay Area aspects. He is best known for his local hits "Super Sic Wit It" and "N.E.W. Oakland". Mistah F.A.B. is currently signed to Thizz Entertainment, Mac Dre's label. He released the much anticipated Son of A Pimp album on Thizz Ent. After Son of a Pimp, he released a DVD called "The Freestyle King". The Freestyle King DVD included many of his freestyle battles, along with the most infamous battle with the Ruff Ryders Jin Au-Yeung. In early 2007, Mistah F.A.B. will release his much anticipated Yellow Bus Rydah album. Recently Mistah F.A.B. has signed a recording contract with Atlantic Records.
The death of 2Pac in the mid 90's ripped the heart out of West Coast Hip Hop. At the same time a young street poet named the Jacka was honing his skills in the Bay Area Rap game. Born to teenage parents, he was raised in the hip hop culture and exposed to break dancing, rap music and graffiti at an unusually young age. While growing up, he was a very serious fan of the whole hip hop culture as well as music in general. Always open minded, he was influenced by b-boys and thugs, pimps and Imams. The Jacka has since developed into an established, well-rounded, well-versed emcee in place to bring himself some serious attention.
He has been featured on well over 100 albums over the past eight years. His contributions to the Mob Figaz self-entitled album resulted in over 100,000 units sold. He has toured with many artists including Mac Dre, Yukmouth (of the Luniz), C-Bo, the Mob Figaz, and Keak da Sneak as well as by himself in order to create nationwide notoriety. His first solo release (featuring Too $hort, Cormega, Christion, and Yukmouth) sold over 20,000 units. Jacka's label sold these units independently, shipping to one-stops across the country. Though great support came from the Bay Area, more than half of Jacka's sales came from outside of California.
Jacka's success proves his mettle as an emcee. His sophomore album "The Jack Artist", is one of the higher selling albums in the Bay Area, on pace to outsell his debut release. With hit singles such as "Hey Girl Rmx" ft. Husalah and "Girls Say" to go along with nothing but dope album cuts like "Looking At It" ft. Keak da Sneak and Yukmouth & "Never Blink", the album was an instant classic with the fans.
In 2006 & 2007, the Jacka stayed busy doing features, collaborations and mixtapes with DJ's such as DJ Juice, The Demolition Men & DJ KTone. The demand for his underground music accelerated him into the position of being nominated in the 2nd annual Bay Area Rap Scene Awards (B.A.R.S.) for "Best Underground Artist", as well as "Group of the Year" for his affiliation as a member of the Mob Figaz. His dedication to music and hard work paid off when he received the award for "Best Underground Artist" in 2006.
Along with the success of winning the Bay Area Rap Scene Award, Jacka continued to raise the bar & maintain his momentum. Releases including 'Devilz Rejectz', a side project entitled "Jack of All Trades", 'Mob Trial 1, 2 & 3' & 3 collaboration albums (including 'Drought Season' & 'The GoBots') have kept his fans hungry for more and his fan base growing. To top it off, he recently won the "Patiently Waiting : California" Award at the 2008 Ozone Awards (other artists nominated includes: Glasses Malone (Cash Money), Bishop Lamont (Aftermath), and Roccett (CTE)). Jacka is currently set to release a 'Street Album' hosted & mixed by 106.1 KMEL DJ & personality Big Von in November 2008, with his highly anticipated 3rd solo album "Tear Gas" coming in February 2009. The Jacka's lyrics voice the code of the streets and the stories of everyday struggles. His message is one of faith, growth, and determination in the midst of dope and unsolved murders.
The Jacka is a leading force in filling the gap left by past-departed West Coast soldiers. Listen closer.

DJ True Justice
True Justice, aka The Man of Steel, has been a pioneer in the Bay Area Hip Hop scene since 1989. In an era where real deejaying skills have become scare, True Justice holds the torch, and is known for tearing clubs down in every city and every town. No stranger to hustle and showmanship, he comes from the era of constantly packing the vinyl crates and being out on the road!
True's ambition is to showcase the amount of talent that he has amassed in the last 17 years in Northern California, better known as The Yay Area. While still in high school, True Justice was a hip hop dancer for the Oakland, CA super-group A.P.G. (Action Packed Gangstas), and at the age of 16, he found himself doing concerts with the likes of Digital Underground, Capital Tax, Paris and K-Cloud -- while witnessing first hand the birth of the independent hip hop game in the culturally rich Bay Area.
From 1989-91, True studied A.P.G.'s master DJ J-Cutt as he amazed crowds night after night with his show-stealing solo routines with two turntables, a mixer, and two copies of the same record. When he arrived in Berkeley in 1992, True Justice (then known as DJ Skillz), traded his patent leather shoes for two Technic turntables and a Gemini mixer. For years you could see True selling cassette tapes on Telegraph Avenue in Berkeley, CA alongside favorites of today: Living Legends, Saafir, and the Hobo Junction.
In 1996, True formed the All Purpose DJs with Lord Takim, DJ Styles, and DJ Lex. That same year he began a career of show deejaying, first with Dream Nefra, and then later with Mic T, AceyAlone & Abstract Rude, Aesop and Planet Asia. He is currently Guerrilla Funk's resident DJ, handling tour duties with Paris and T-K.A.S.H. He also works with Enzyme Dynamite of The Bayliens. As a duo True Justice and DJ Lex released Volume 1 in 1997, Aural Sex Volume 2 in 1998, AP2K in 2000, and Pound Fa Pound in 2004. All releases quickly became local classics. The All Purpose DJs have excited crowds with icons such as Slick Rick, Biz Markie, Notorious B.I.G., Xzibit, Phife, Keak Da Sneak, Above The Law, and E-40.
In 2001, True and Lex toured in Osaka, Japan, garnering legions of fans of their dexterity on the wheels of steel. A bonafide student of showmanship, True continued to hone his craft, and in 2007, True Justice dropped his self-titled debut album and joined forces with The Bayliens -- "Aliens from The Bay" -- and dropped the CD Crop Circles in the same year.
From 2007 to 2011, True Justice toured worldwide with The Bayliens, Living Legends, Mistah F.A.B., Zion I, Paris, The Alkaholiks, Jeru The Damaja, Lords Of The Underground, The Beatnuts, Onyx, Redman and EPMD. Now, in 2012, he is poised to release his sophomore effort, The Man of Steel, on Guerrilla Funk, with production assistance by Paris and featuring Planet Asia and The Bayliens.
