blame game + what you finna do – davinci

Expect no gimmicks from San Francisco-bred emcee, DaVinci. Though his upbringing in the historic Fillmore District is a far cry from its jazz heyday, he represents a new generation of post-Reaganomic crack-era rap, whose often-unwitting participants had to hustle to survive past their adolescence. “My music has everything to do with my environment: from robbing, killing, pimpin’ to selling and abusing drugs…to family, gentrification, and shit, just havin’ fun,” he explains about his heavy content. “It’s a direct reflection of what my friends and family have been through and are still going through.”

blame game is phenomenal and what you finna do is still the best rap song & video explaining gentrification + “urban renewal”. if rap was once “the cnn of the ghetto” then @DaVinci415 may be one of the last credible reporters we have left…
