    Noisey Bay Area with G-Eazy, E-40, and more! (Video)

    @NoiseyMusic came through the Bay Area to tell the story of the resilience of the Bay Area's rap scene and the changing financial, and political landscape in which it exists. Noisey's Zach Goldblum asks questions about issues of police brutality and corruption, as well as the housing crisis and its impact on culture and the music.


    E-40 Explains How to Beat the Odds in the Bay (Interview)

    @E40 sat down with Noisey as part of Noisey Bay Area, which airs tonight at 10PM on Viceland. The veteran rapper and Bay Area ambassador explains the spirit of the independent grind that is etched into the DNA of the Bay Area rap scene. Check out what he had to say in the clip above.


    Noisey presents: On The Roof with Volume 2

    The good folks at @NoiseyMusic tapped in with us for another On The Roof #BayMix, and it came out DOPE! Check out the full writeup by @EmDubious & @IJustWant2Rap here. (Miss the last mix we did for Noisey? Click here.)

    It's a strange time for Bay Area hip-hop. On one hand, it's having a moment of resurgence: Following the breakout successes of Iamsu! and Sage the Gemini, last year saw local songwriter Bobby Brackins hit it big with two of the year's monster hits, and E-40 recently found himself atop Billboard's Hot Hip-Hop and R&B Songs chart thanks to his collaboration with Big Sean, "IDFWU." On the other hand, the Bay is hurting: Last month, local icon The Jacka was tragically killed in his home city of Oakland.

    Still, music new and old continues to exist, and heartfelt tributes to and signs of the The Jacka's influence continue to emerge. At Noisey, we love Bay Area rap, so we've teamed up with our friends over at Thizzler on the Roof to present a mix of some of the best the region has to offer right now. Volume Two of On The Roof, dedicated to The Jacka, is below, with descriptions of each track in the mix:
