Been out of the loop for a second, but came back to the Go Gettas’ latest slap in my inbox. I had the opportunity to hear this song a while back, so it’s nice to see it come back with some visuals.
The Go Gettas consist of 5 artists; Yarrow Slaps, K.E., Simon Says, and Ant Rich. All of them hailing from San Francisco, the Go Gettas bring a distinct sound that I can’t really compare to anything else in the industry right now. Having heard ‘Purple Room,’ and another track titled ‘Ya Special,’ I feel like the Go Gettas bring a style really reminiscent of The Pharcyde and Souls of Mischief.
While we’ve had a lot of these 90s revivalist type of music recently, the Go Gettas still very obviously remain a product of the Bay, a region that is just as much influenced by The Coup, Del, and the aforementioned Souls of Mischief, as they are by Mac Dre, Too Short, and E-40. Showing another more laid-back side not too often heard anymore from the Bay Area, the Go Gettas seem to be turning into the Bay’s counterpart to similar movements popping up around the country (ProEra, SaveMoney, iLLmont, for example.)
I’ll make sure to post up their first tape when it drops, which should be hosted by Mishka.
