Kool John and Joe Moses are two very consistent but very underrated voices in West Coast rap. Today they've teamed up to prove their some of the best in their region.
Show Banga is looking to be one of the next artists to break out out of the San Francisco area. Iamsu! is really putting the Bay on his back, supporting much of the local talent, even if they aren't direct HBK Gang members, Show Banga included.
"Skiirrt" is easily one of the greatest ad-libs of all time, meant to recreate the song of a foreighn whip tearing off into the night, rappers like Gucci Mane have truly mastered the sound and its placement within rap.
Coming off the release of their new album Moovie, Kool John & P-Lo decide to come through today and liberate the official video for their Iamsu!-featured single “On One.”

Kool John's new video for "Wobble" opens with a clip of a woman deciding what to wear to one of his "Shmop" parties. We soon follow her (ass) out of the room and into John's ride, where she immediately begins twerking like her life depends on it.

In a Bay Area group as blunted as HBK Gang, it takes a lot to stand out as the "stoner one." Among a bunch of other worthy candidates, Kool John's always been located as that dude, with his wonky stylings standing out as just a tad weirder than his crewmates'.
G-Eazy won't even be concluding his current "From The Bay To The Universe" tour for another nine days, but he's already sold over 50,000 tickets. With that in mind, you can't blame him for deciding to extend the tour with a second leg.
