INTERVIEW: DaVinci and Al Jieh Of SWTBRDS (Part 3)

This is Part 3 of my interview with DaVinci and Al Jieh of San Francisco’s SWTBRDS label (Part 1 HERE, Part 2 HERE). In this segment we talk about the history of Bay Area rap, certain misconceptions about it, and how SWTBRDS fits into the overall legacy of the region.
 
As our ride continues we talk more about the close knit nature of The Bay Area’s rap scene, how the connections shared by DaVinci and Al Jieh exemplify working relationships that developed between residents of disparate city and suburban regions. My girlfriend mentions Marin County, a luxurious suburban outpost located across the bridge from SF. The guys laugh and trade jokes about the wide gap between that county and their own world, then turn up a surprising nugget of trivia.
 
DaVinci & Al Jieh: (remembering nearly in unison) Tupac was from Marin City!

C-Bo – Fuckin Wit It Ft. E-40 (Prod By Issue)

Two Bay Area vets, produced by one of the West’s most unusual and eccentric youngins. I expected something much much stranger from Issue, but instead he comes up with a traditionally minded stripped down bass heavy beat that feels almost like a throwback. And of course the two elder statesmen know exactly what to do with that.

Nate Dogg – Nobody Does It Better

Wednesday, March 16th, 2011

If Dre was the sound of G-Funk and Snoop was voice, then Nate Dogg was surely the harmony. Tying together lush production and smooth vocals with his rich, raspy melodies, Nate brought a defining quality to the music. Raised as a gospel singer in East Long Beach, he crashed onto the regional scene with his work on Mista Grimm’s “Indo Smoke” and Dr. Dre’s “Lil’ Ghetto Boy,” but it was his appearance alongside Warren G on “Regulate” that pushed him into the national spotlight. When Death Row Records collapsed under it’s own misdeeds, he took his talents from coast to coast, never failing to impress as the go to guy for that Californian vibe whilst giving career defining hits to the likes of Ludacris, Fabolous and 50 Cent. Many have tried to imitate him and some have even tried to snatch the crown as the king of the rap hook, but to no avail. They can come closer than close. Original they never could be.
