The newest duo to hop on the Bay Area bandwagon (or in this case, yellow bus) is Zion I. Their single, Don’t Lose Ya Head, from Too $hort’s compilation album, I Love The Bay, sounds very similar to a song from The Pack; Young L-sounding production and a rhyme pattern describing the perks and dangers of street life. Speaking from experience, Short Dawg contributes a verse, warning the younger crowd not to get too caught up in the hood life like he did when he was younger. After all, the song advises the listener not to lose their head. If you’re in need of more regional anthems, I Love The Bay the compilation is in stores now.
