Bay Area Hip Hop Songs
I recently attended a concert featuring bay area hip hop artists P- Lo and Rexx Life Raj. and Seattle’s own 40 Groove who did a fantastic job by the way. As a result, I was exposed to all kinds of great “hyphy” music that I wasn’t familiar with. It reminded me of “Hyphy Night” back when I used to DJ nothing but bay area hip hop music on Thursday nights at Twilight Martini Lounge in downtown Seattle’s Belltown area.
Here is a video clip of P-Lo performing “Put Me On Something”
The club has since changed names and no “Hyphy Night” goes on at the moment. Being at this concert did give me an itch to get “Hyphy Night” started again. Nonetheless, it also inspired me to write this blog post about the best bay area hip hop dance songs.
Some of these are the songs I would play at “Hyphy Night” and some are newly discovered since then.
