We are proud to announce our awesome lineup for the First Friday of April! The following four up-and coming Bay Area rappers will be rocking the stage: Beejus, G Maly, RBC Bugzy, and Rexx Life Raj. The event will be held at Oaklandish’s downtown Oakland retail store (1444 Broadway) from 7-10pm on April 1st and is free for all ages! Hosted by DNas (Streets is Talking Radio), and Dion Decibels will be back on the 1s and 2s, this will definitely be a turnt up event you will not want to miss.
The first of the four rappers is Beejus, hailing from West Oakland, California. Not only did Beejus recently drop the highly anticipated new album, Beesmoove 2, he is also the host of the his very own podcast, Awkward Convos With Beejus. Next on the line up is G Maly, who was born in Hayward, but moved to Oakland at the age of five. G Maly worked on music through high school, producing his own beats and honing his craft, before moving to the South West to Eastern Arizona College on a basketball scholarship. At the age of 21, G Maly founded True Society Music Group and started opening for famed artists, such as YG, J Stalin, and Mac Mall. Third up is RBC Bugzy, a Richmond, California native with an ear for clever lyricism and sharp storytelling. His mixtape, Richmen, has received critical acclaim and has become widely considered one of the best mixtapes to come out of the Bay Area in a long time. Finally, rounding off the list is Rexx Life Raj, a Berkeley-based rapper who was recently featured in Fader Magazine for his song, “Southside.” Rexx Life Raj’s trippy sound, along with collaborations with fellow Bay Area rappers, like Nef The Pharaoh, has earned him a great deal of press in the last couple years, making him one of the few elite up and coming stars coming out of the East Bay.
The Oaklandish fam could not be more excited to host these four exciting, talented rappers! Stay tuned for more details. See you there!
