While plenty of MCs from the East Coast, West Coast and Midwest have adapted to the popular southern sounds of Houston, Atlanta and Miami, the same cannot be said for the Bay Area’s regionally popular Hyphy movement. In fact, if you ask listeners outside of the Oakland/San Francisco area to name an artist who is responsible for the Hyphy sound, many would simply not know. Informed and well-versed, St. Louis rap pioneer Nelly wants to correct that problem, showcasing three Hyphy legends on the appropriately titled, Bay. In honor of rappers Spice 1 (first verse), Too Short (second verse) and E-40 (third verse), the St. Lunatic tactfully imitates all three delivery styles, delivering a surprisingly unique track. Nelly will drop his long-awaited Brass Knuckles on June 24.
