    Mac Dre's definitly on my list. I've heard that Dreganomics is a good place to start?

    Tagging @Enigma who is our resident Bay Area expert

    I've only heard a few stuff like Mac Dre (still haven't combed through everything), RBL Posse, Souls Of Mischief, Del The Funky Homosapien (his later stuff isn't as traditional Oakland albeit) heck even 2Pac always had heavy Bay influences.

    I'm not too familiar with Bay Area rap, but San Quinn is really good

    This is the man who said I should be banned from SXN80. Let that sink in. He:
    1. Thinks G-easy is bay rap
    2. Listens to g easy

    Never said he was bay rap, said he has a take on the bay sound. And yes I like g Eazy, nothing wrong with having different musical taste. Now if I said like he’s the greatest rapper alive or sum stupid s--- then sure there’s something wrong with that, but nothing wrong with me enjoying his music.

    And I was just f---ing with you when I tagged you in that lmao

    Honestly, if people bothered to listen to E-40, they would be blown away. Skip all the old school junk, his past 9 albums have been the bomb. Here's the list: My Ghetto Report Card, The Ball Street Journal, Revenue Retrievingay Shift, Revenure Retrieving:Night Shift, Revenue Retrieven: Overtime Shift, Revenue Retrieving: Graveyard Shift, and the Block Brochure (parts 1, 2, and 3). His best songs:Gunz, My S*** b---, Alcoholism, The Streets don't love nobody, tell me when to go, muscle cars, slow it down, 40 water, I'm on one, slow it down... The list goes on and on. He should be considered as the greatest rapper alive and its a crime that he isn't.
