I saw some dood called Young Fire straight KILL IT in Berkeley in Saturday before Cutty Ranks: He was the BOMB. I also witnessed Bingy Ghost for the first time that night and I gotta say I was impressed!

Soul Medic is another favorite, along with MANY others...

is wadi from norcal? i thought he was livin down this way
Re: Favorite Local Reggae

He's around here a lot, and his CD lists an oakland phone number. I think he's back and forth between this area and down south. wherever he resides though, massive drummer and performer. Peace

speaking of local reggae, the bayareareggae.com site is going to be undergoing some massive changes soon, hopefully with the launch date being before SNWMF. Peace

Ras James,

You were SMART to buy that domain name dood. Even if you sell it, you'll make a GRIP. Good investment!

I can't belive no one has lareggae.com yet. Maybe I'll buy it right now....

P.S. I haven't got back to you about those voicings, 'cuz quite frankly, prices for that particular project are really unreasonable. I'm sure this is due to season, and will change dramatically by Fall...

Favorites Include for Socal...

Dylan Judah(I dont know if he is considered local but I see him alot)
Detour Posse.
Wailing Souls
Don Carlos

I dont know if these artist's can be considered local cause of thier Yard Status
but they do reside around So Cal.

I'm thankful I got that domain when I did, respect's gotta be given to my friend's uncle who helped us out with getting that back in 03. Last year or so hasn't gotten the attention it deserves because of busy schedules, but we're about to take it to the next level.

no worry on the voicings, just keep in touch and let me know how things go. Jah Bless

I'm confused.....I thought young fire was the guy by himself in the JA track jacket with the stunna shades on, and Luv Fire was the guy with BG. I assume that the first guy is the one Spleece is refering to and Balboa may be refering to the 2nd guy that was with BG. I liked both but would like to know who was who if anyone can clarify.

Yeah, I think you're right AKA: track jacket & stunnas...
