It is the super rare song that we’ll transport your mind straight back …

Ezale & DJ Fresh The Tonight Show Foreal Foreal Ent Hottest Jams: “Day Ones,” “Stop Come On” For the first time in my lifetime, the Warriors are good and East Bay rap is popping at the same time. 2016 has seen a clutch of young Oakland rappers like Kamaiyah, Nef the Pharoah, and Eazle make a dent in the national scene, while trumpeting the unique culture and sound of the city. The latter’s glorious 10-song debut uniquely blends the slap of …
