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.
Deltrice Thorner the daughter Of Steven Thorner; A preacher & Tish Thorner; a choir director, was born in San Francisco, California. She has had to sing, dance, act and generally show the charisma she has since the tender age of three and it has lead her to stardom. Steve and Tish Thorner realized their precocious daughter was something special when tish handed the girl a microphone when she was little singing with the junior choir. After getting out of school Deltrice became a clothing designer but then she set off for fame in order to show off her talent. She worked with lady lust on some songs, then she tried out for American Idol & made it to the second round only to be told she "Wasn't Kelly Clarkson enough." That itself was enough to motivate Deltrice so she moved on and tried out for "The Road to Stardom." She awoke one night from a nap and overheard Missy Elliott's plea for talent. She went on the web site and they said auditions were held the next day in L.A. With her parent's blessings, the assertive woman flew out with a friend, only to find thousands lined up around the block at the auditions. When Missy got to her, her friend says "she sings." Missy told her to sing so she did. Critics say she has great passion in her voice and she made it to the final show. She made it though all ten episodes, but her best friend while on the show (Jessica Betts) won it all.

Tonka Boy Dre
Northern California has always been known as one of the most diverse places in the United States, culturally, ethnically and financially, and of course this goes even more for the music scene, especially Hip-Hop. Having produced some of the best talent from many genres of music, but with many ups and downs, and in rap specifically, years past the fledgling Mobb era of the 90’s and the failed Hyphy era of five years ago, it’s a new day and it’s time for a fresh start. Tonka Boy Dre is an artist hoping to be one of the leaders for the next generation of musical talent coming out of the Bay Area.
