DJ Gutta Butta & Slimmy B Know When It’s “Bag Time”

Published

on

Hailing from Vallejo, California DJ Gutta Butta and the former SOB x RBE emcee Slimmy B are quintessential Bay Area figures, focused on securing the bag above all else. Connecting with two more NorCal all-stars, Gutta Butta and Slimmy share Bag Time,” their new video. A piano-led anthem about enjoying life’s finer things, “Bag Time” gets its power from the contrast between the melodic stylings of San Francisco’s Lil Bean, the smoothly lilting flow of Stockton’s MBNel, and the neck-snapping attack of Slimmy B. In the video, directed by Skiimob and hosted on the ABOVE ALL YouTube channel, the four artists don their favorite basketball jerseys (a lot of Kobe love) as they mob out in a secluded Berkley warehouse. “Bag Time” is a highlight track from All Net, the new collaborative EP by DJ Gutta Butta and Slimmy B, and the second video following “Sh*t Talking” ft. Icewear Vezzo.

Compiling six new songs that run the street rap spectrum, All Net gets its power from Slimmy B’s breakneck, against-the-beat flow and his casually flossy flexes. A&R’d by Gutta Butta, a Bay Area music scene jack-of-all-trades, the new EP teams Slimmy with a variety of the rawest rappers in the Bay Area, including Slimmy’s ex-SOB x RBE brother DaBoii and rising melodic rappers Lil Bean and MBNel. Gutta Butta also connects Slimmy with two Detroit all-stars, bringing in Icewear Vezzo for recent single “Sh*t Talking” and Bandgang Lonnie Bands for the fiery “No Passes.” Though Slimmy loves the Warriors and Gutta Butta pledges allegiance to the Lakers (RIP Kobe), the two make a perfect tag team on the new EP. All Net is available to stream on all platforms via Purple Lane Ent.

A renaissance man with ventures in many aspects of the music industry, Vallejo native DJ Gutta Butta a crucial role in the Bay Area rap scene. Known for his signature #YesYes DJ drop, he’s most prominently a DJ and mixtape host, using his connections to put together tapes for artists like Benny and Salsalino, generating millions of streams and getting radio spins on KMEL for hits like Benny’s “Weekend.” He’s also an experienced concert promoter, putting on shows in the Bay for artists like Nef The Pharaoh, Cuban Doll, Icewear Vezzo, and OMB Peezy. When he’s not making moves in the music world, Gutta Butta spends his time breeding American and French bulldogs.

Gutta Butta first connected with Slimmy B for the 2017 single “U Ain’t Ready,” a local favorite slap in the Bay, and they’ve been friends ever since. With All Net, the DJ/rapper duo looks to make waves in the Bay and beyond.

MBNel Shares an Uplifting Message from Overseas in “Don’t Say” Video

Published

Winning fans with his raw honesty and melodic mastery, MBNel plans to rise from the streets of Stockton to the mainstream. Continuing to defy expectations in his upward trajectory from the trenches, MBNel shares “Don’t Say,” his new single and music video. A piano-led anthem with rumbling bass and ethereal vocal samples, “Don’t Say” provides Nel with the opportunity to reflect on how far he’s come, sharing stories from the struggle and contrasting them with his recent success: “Designer clothes for all the times I used to borrow clothes/They tried to set the play, I hit that audible.” In the video, Nel shares dispatches from his global travels–he navigated Amsterdam in a Rolls Royce, and jetted off to the Cayman Island to catch some rays (and some chickens).

His first new song of the New Year, “Don’t Say” arrives on the road to Started In The South, the Stockton, CA native’s next EP. Arriving during a period of sustained growth from Nel, the new EP finds him reflecting on his success and paying homage to the streets that raised him. The “south” in the EP’s title refers to its position at the bottom of the map–Nel started at the bottom, but he’s quickly emerging from his circumstances off the strength of his authentic anthems. Featuring an appearance from OTF standout Doodie LoStarted In The South is coming soon via Muddy Boyz/EMPIRE.

MBNel ended 2022 on a hot streak, releasing songs like the devastating ballad “Fadeaway,” dedicated to the memory of a fan who recently passed away, and Toxic,” a relationship drama and duet with the rising singer Haben. Born and raised in Stockton, a city in Central Cali with a busy rap scene, MBNel built a reputation on the West Coast for his combination of hummable melodies and relatable trench tales. The 25-year-old artist has a loyal following who respond to his naked authenticity, a quality on display on his 2021 project No Hard Feelings. In the wake of last year’s success, Nel is challenging himself artistically, pushing the boundaries of his sound as he continues to express his truth.

Stay tuned for more from MBNel.

SleazyWorld Go Returns With Heater “Robbers & Villains”

Published

2023 is set to be a landmark year for Kansas City’s SleazyWorld Go, who was announced by Spotify as an Artist To Watch in 2023, and last week iHeartRadio announced him as nominee for Best New Hip Hop Artist. Today, he continues his winning streak with the release of “Robbers & Villains,” a tight 2-minute heater about expecting the unexpected, growing up in an environment like he did in Grand Rapids, MI, and then later in Kansas City, MO. He pairs hard-hitting bars with sinister humor, making bangers that have real street wisdom behind them — a skill that Sleazy’s already proven to master on last year’s “Sleazy Flow.” In the video for “Robbers & Villains,” Sleazy takes it back home to Kansas City and mobs around town with his crew, directed by Jerry Production. 

2022 was a huge year for SleazyWorld Go — “Sleazy Flow,” earned him first a co-sign then feature from Lil Baby, his first #1 on Urban Radio, and his first RIAA certified platinum plaque. While “Sleazy Flow,” set Sleazy up for success, he proved he’s here for the long haul on Where The Shooters Be. WTSB has star studded features like Lil Baby, G Herbo, Offset, Rich The Kid, and more, but it also boasts 20 tracks that showcase Sleazy’s versatility. There are hard hitting rap bangers like “Free YSL,” songs for the ladies like “Different,” and he gets sentimental about his success and how far he’s come on “Public Housing.” 

SleazyWorld Go’s rise to stardom began in 2019, following a personal transformation behind bars. The artist whose mom moved his family from Grand Rapids, Michigan, to Kansas City, Missouri, searching for a better life, wanted to move in a positive direction. Music was his method. He began parsing a dynamic range of songs on social media and cultivating a fanbase. Ahead of all that 2023 has in store for him, Sleazy asserts, “I want to keep breaking barriers and doing what hasn’t been done.”
