1.)What are thoughts on how the Southbay/san jose Rap scene will grow and get recognized with more respect musically in the Rap Bussiness by the rest of the bay and the country in the next few years?
2.)Who are some of the shining stars right now that are making a name for themselves and are helping shape and build the sound out their?

1. My thoughts... I don't see a lot of emphasis being put on expanding or promotion. There's a lot of artists making a come up but the truth of it is you don't see or hear them, they're not making songs which are radio worthy. San Jose is basically a fish tank and some artists aren't stepping outside the boundaries when it comes to making their name known.

I believe it can grow if artists shed their image and just come real and try not to follow the trend set forth by other artists in this area.

you know what, I was doin my thing at one point. I had regular rotation on KMEL, I was on B-Legit's purple house president dvd, Blockstars dvd, ran a commercial on BET, shot a video whi9ch was on a couple of dvd's, full page magazine adds, etc.... The reason why I'm saying this is because I get tired of people sayin no one from the southbay has got on. I got on, but now I'm in the lab workin on a third album, and brewin up a better and bigger plan with more finances. check out the websites:

-I can only talk about what IMA do. I'm gon make ORIGINAL- INDUSTRY QUALITY music that isn't carbon copy shit of what other folks are doin.

-IMA rep the crib no matter where I go. I bought a house and have been living in East Oakland for years now. I fuck wit Town niggas daily and they know where Im from. Just came back from Boston 3 weeks ago messin wit the radio DJ on some shit. Just left Chicago 1 week ago fuckin wit some producers out there.

-I will not even entertain these "IS SAN JOSE HARD" threads. I know I came up with some niggaz that'll buss ya head FROM SAN JO- period. No need to emphasize, brag or prove that fact. I'm a grown ass man!

I don't say none of this to brag. Just sayin that SJ gotta rep "yes"...but make sure your grind, your music, & your ethic is up to par too pimpn'!

Here some music from the SouthBay DJSincere...

That's my point. Before you guys can plan to take over the universe you need to have atleast 1 hit. You guys got like 2,000 rappers down there and never had one hit.

Thas wassup my dude. One of my potnas is out in Dallas area. He said it be crackin out there. I saw the flics of ya reppin out in Miami...SJ fitted and allllll. Thas what niggas need to do. Keep it GOTDAMN movin.
Lets politic famlee!

I think SJ hasn't had a radio hit because the majority of the radio djs are in the O or Frisco and therefore have an ear more to the streets out here. We need to build relationships with the djs. Get out of the 408 to put 408 out there...!

@autistic - it aint that san jo has never had a hit, its just that the right promotional tools aint in place to get it out there. to me it feels like the south bay makes music for the south bay. somebody from frisco or oakland dont wanna hear southbay 408 san jose in a song they listen to over and over. they rather hear there spot bein shouted out

I HAVE TO DISAGREE, THE BAY AND PEOPLE OUTSIDE THE BAY DO FUCK WIT SAN JOSE... FOR EXAMPLE

IM SIGNED WIT AP.9 OF THE MOB FIGAZ, RAN WIT CELLY CEL'S CAMP FOR A COUPLE OF YEARS, DONE SHOWS WIT SNOOP, TOO SHORT AND MILLION OTHER PEOPLE, I THINK THATS PEOPLE IN AND OUTSIDE THE BAY FUCKIN WIT SAN JO

ASSASSIN HAS FULL ALBUMS OF HIM WIT JT THA BIGGA FIGGA, SAN QUINN, MOPREME SHAKUR, AND WORKS WIT EVERYONE IN THE BAY, I THINK THATS PEOPLE FUCKIN WIT SAN JO ARTISTS

METAL MOUTH RECORDS HAS HAD THEIR MIXTAPES HOSTED BY TONS OF HUGE ARTISTS IN THE BAY AND HAVE THE MOST POPULAR URBAN T-SHIRT LINE IN THE BAY, THATS PEOPLE FUCKIN WIT SAN JO ARTISTS

TRAXXAMILLION DOES BEATS FOR EVERY RAPPER IN THE BAY, THEY ALL FUCK WIT SAN JO

I COULD GO ON AND ON AND ON... YOU GET THE POINT

I THINK WHAT YOU ARE REALLY TRYING TO ASK IS HOW COME SAN JO ARTISTS DON'T GET RADIO PLAY, AND HOW COME NONE HAVE MAJOR DEALS... REALLY THATS JUST HOW IT IS RIGHT NOW, THE TIME WILL COME

Real American

The Blueprint;
What needs to be put in light:
the san jose pd,they needa get hit on the rap tip,and be spoken about.Get the attention that they is worse then the NEW YORK PD...crook-ed-ERR then the LAPD...basically besides maricopa county the worse fuckin law system against minorities in the west coast. Lotta ni66as is doin a whole lota time beacuse em.People who have deep roots in the community and are feelin the pain of scores of family locked up.
Trealtv2 had some fooage of sjpd..seen a few other dvd's.But More video footage needs to hit utube,dvd documentarys,music videos about the law enforcemnet in your community & everything else that is wrong.....Shed the light.And not just now,but constantly every year till it gets so raw The police chief has to have a press confrence about the rapid rap violence growing in their community,or howevere else they want to misinterpretate it.

More younger artist need to step up and just drop them home recorded mixtapes and get established.Get heard and shape the landscape three dimensionally.Rap documenatrys like hood2hood, where each lil hood that got stripes get put in light positively.The real leaders of the sj rap community step up and drop compliations of All the Real mfkas from the entire southbay.ie;westcoast badboys,rompilation esque album.More rap eventsfreestyle stuff regardless of the constant police present and "violenct media reports"..Like don stop pushin."If you build it they wil come"<--->>>James earl jones ((( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-qXkcPQUfJM )))

Shows every nite,5 days a week.San Jose rap artist need to be performin every nite at atleast one of those lavish clubs you guys get to call your own.Tourist,outsiders visting need to be hit by the rap aspect to be noticed& acknowledged.

Something to smoke a blunt2...
think hulk hogan in Wrestle Mania3..>>>(( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8DE0LOMrb88 )) goin down the whole match...Then all of a sudden a second of good luck..tables turn ...you Hulk up.and body slam 758 pound 7foot 5 andre the giant.
