GTS, who does the 'stunna glasses at night', with E-40? You know I'm a rook for not knowing already.

I was listening to KMEL the other day on a trip to the bay, and they were playing all new Oakland rappers. This hyphy thing is no joke. It's peaking. Getting better. Wha'ts pissing me off is they aren't playing it in Sacramento. It's still all about the crunk here, at least on the radio. This is N. Cali. When are these deejays going to realize that? Why don't they play what the people in their respective cities want to hear? I know it's all about money and payola, but you'd think each city would play it's local style. Then again, a lot of people in Sac probably want to hear that C Bo, Brutha Lynch, and there's no way that's getting airplay. but there's no reason they shouldn't be playing the bay area stuff more.

Federation & E-40 do the Stunna Glasses at Night.

Somethin Terrible is from Sac and they are on Thizz, they're tight.

I'm from the Bay, and growin up there was a smaller group that listened to Bay Rap but better quality out there. Now every lil teenager out here knows about Bay Area Rap, but the problem is everybody is tryin to be a rapper. Different strokes for different folks, I dig good music whether it be hyphy, mob, east, or south. Our main players Mac Dre (RIP), 40, Legit, Keak, Short, Team, Dubee, San Quinn etc are just as good as most shitt out there now a days.

I agree about C-Bo to an extent, when you get older you don't have the same mindframe as a younsta that's 14-18. Just as when we were 17 the older cats didn't quite get down like us.

Federation, thanks.

103 is allright, they were especially tight when they first took the air a decade ago, when all they played was west coast and r & b. Before they came on, FM 102, which had been the only game in town for years when it came to hip hop, was playing mostly all r & b and only the most commercial of rap songs. 103 made 102 better. But, at some point, 103 became more corporate and, even though they never changed their format, they did pretty much ditch the west coast, with the exception of someone like E 40 dropping something new. For the past couple of years, they've been playing mostly Southern hip hop. Lil Jon, etc. I think they are playing more hyphy music now, though. I think I even heard that federation/e40 song once or twice.
