(AllHipHop News) This Thursday Hip-Hop heads in the Los Angeles area will have the chance to witness some of California’s greatest rap stars come together for the first installment of “West Coast Fest” presented by Bobby Dee, Clubben.com, and Behind the Scenes.
Power 106 FM’s radio personality Big Boy will host the event that will feature performances by Too $hort, Warren G, Mack 10, Baby Bash, Clyde Carson, Problem, Skeme the Duke, and headliners DJ Quik and E-40.
Fans in attendance can also expect some surprise guests to make appearances.
One exclusive moment for the show has already been announced. DJ Quik plans to debut new songs that evening including a track featuring Mack 10 called “Burnin Up.”
“We’re not trying to conform. We want to stay original and iconic. This will be a first to do this with all of these superstars in one show,” says Quik in a statement.
West Coast Fest will be a historic moment in the legacy of the California rap scene. The show’s impact is being billed as a bridging of the gap between Northern and Southern Cali Hip-Hop stars.
While DJ Quik, Mack 10, Warren G, Skeme, and Problem will be holding it down for L.A. and SoCal, the Bay area will be properly represented will the inclusion of Clyde Carson, Too $hort, Baby Bash, and E-40.
“You’re gonna to get a bit of vintage of E-40 and a little bit of current E-40 and I’m gonna mix that thang up like gumbo,” says the Vallejo native whose 2012 single “Function” was a Top 30 rap hit.
