@StorminStakk speaks on San Diego Rap

It aint about who raps in San Diego or who can rap. Its about actual talent and street credibility. If your not known on the streets of San Diego aint nobody gone buy or promote your stuff no matter how tight you are. There is a lot of hard rappers but everybody dont got the street credibility or support to back up there raps. thats what its really about. The main artist in bthe city of San Diego are Tha Dosia Twinz (Stormin Stakk & Tiny Sixx), Big June, Baby Scar, South Resse, Young Hollywood, Marty Mac Phly, Kambino, Suga Shaft, Mitchy Slick, Don Diego, Damu, Black Mikey, B-Stone, 12 Gauge Shottie, Mary Jane Junkeez, Baby Bandit, I-Rocc, CeeWee 3, Googie Monsta, Treali Duce, Ecay Uno. Smigg Dirtee, Jayo Felony, Cricet, Bay Loc, Lil C.S, Mooch Massive. Dem the type of niggas that will bring the whole city out and if was on one label, the city of San Diego would be ON, there is a few I missed but other than those, the others dont really have the credibility in the streets to even rap. It sounds very good though. Thats just keeping it 100 !!

Snoop Dogg changes name to Snoop Lion

Snoop Dogg is dropping Dogg like it's hot. Born Calvin Broadus, the rapper says he was born again during a 35 day stay in Jamaica, in which he discovered his true Rastafarian self and claims he is like Bob Marley, born again, according to the NY Daily News. Because of this life-changing trip, he will now be known as Snoop Lion. "I didn't know that until I went to the temple, where the High Priest asked me what my name was, and I said, 'Snoop Dogg.' And he looked me in my eyes and said, 'No more. You are the light; you are the lion.' From that moment on, it's like I had started to understand why I was there," he explained at a press conference. Snoop says he always felt a connection to Marley. "I have always said I was Bob Marley reincarnated. I feel I have always been a Rastafarian. I just didn't have my third eye open, but it's wide open right now." Bob Marley's son Rohan attended the event that Snoop was speaking at about his name change and gave him his blessing, according to FOX News. Snoop didn't give an explanation as to why he was switching from "Dogg" to "Lion," but it's likely a reference to the Lion of Judah, a religious symbol popular in Rastafarian and Ethiopian culture. After being in the rap season sine the early 1990s, Snoop says that genre of music doesn't move him the same way it used to. Instead, this spiritual development is reviving his artistic and creative energy. "I've been on the top ever since I've been in it," he explained. "I got rap songs that will never die. And that ain't with no disrespect but I'm tired of rap." While in the studio, Snoop reportedly referred to his musical past in third person, saying, "F*** Snoop Dogg. Don't think about none of the s*** he rapped about: hustling and making money and drug-dealing and shooting. All that s***'ll be out of here." And now, he's ready to make music that his "kids and grandparents can listen to." In fact, he even performed a few songs at the event, one of which included a song titled, 'No Guns Allowed," which features his daughter. "I'm a wise man in the music industry," he said. "Not that I'll never do rap again because I'm always gonna do what I love, but right now I'm Snoop Lion and I'm having fun with this reggae movement so hopefully you guys will enjoy it as well." Snoop Lion is set to release a reggae album in the fall, which will be followed with a documentary that will feature his music and will include personal elements of his life. At 40 years old, Snoop says after discovering his inner Rastafarian, he feels much younger. "It feels like I'm 19 or 20 years old again," he said.

SOUTHEAST RED VODKA - Gang-Violence Vodka Sparks Spat

Southeast Red Vodka, with a label that maps San Diego's gangs, is accused of profiteering. Vodka companies have many times used sex to sell the stuff at varying degrees of tastelessness, but a new brand's sales are apparently being boosted by gang violence. Southeast Red Vodka, distilled and bottled by Colorado-based Neradi3 LLC, comes in a frosted glass bottle that maps San Diego's notorious gangs on its label—all in red, a color associated with an infamous gang in the region. Locals are calling the liquor an attempt to cash in on the area's gang violence tasteless at best—and a “disaster waiting to happen” at worst. Mario Lewis, a leader of the community group 100 Strong, calls it “disgraceful” to “portray a community in gang-banging terms.” And at $20 for the 80-proof liquor, it's been flying off the shelves. San Diego accounted for the most gang-related killings in the US in the last year, and branding like this is unlikely to help alleviate the city's gang problem. Matthew T. Hall, a San Diego-based journalist, called the company hoping to get some answers for locals angry about an outsider profiteering from their region's violence problem. “If you are from southeastern San Diego, that's one thing,” he says. “If you grew up here and have pride in your neighborhood, maybe that's what this is about.” But he met with resistance from Southeast Red Vodka's spokesman: “You ain't getting no information... and I'd hate to have to sue you too. Because I really don't want to be in your article.”
San Diego citizens are concerned the cash-in could perpetuate gang violence
