EDITORS’ NOTES

Two rap veterans from the Bay, Berner & Jacka have been around for years, putting out a gigantic amount of music mostly concerned with moving weight, staying lit, rocking the ladies, and getting paid. They continue that trend on this mixtape, and its 17 tracks also showcase like-minded local homies such as San Quinn, Ray Luv, Lucky Luciano, Joe Blow, Liqz, Rappin' 4-Tay, Messy Marv, Fed-Ex, Lil Goofy, and Willie Hen. Unlike many of their ratchet-minded contemporaries, they come with a more classic production approach, with plenty of soulful samples and unique drums backing their felonious flows. From the America's Most Wanted–sampling intro to the Blow-jacking outro, just about every joint on here is nice. Most notable are the bluesy "Iller Sh*t," the Rolling Stones redux "Frisco 2 Rosa," the super-mellow "Can't Hold It In," and the futuristic criminology anthem "Spray 'Em."

About Berner

Marijuana-obsessed yet prolific MC Berner released several mixtapes during the late 2000s and early 2010s, most of which came out through the San Francisco-based rapper's own Bern One label. Several of the discs -- Drought Season (2008), Traffic (2009), Weekend at Bernie’s (2009), Drought Season 2 (2009), Blow (2010), Blow: Blocks and Boat Docks (2010), and The White Album (2011) -- reached Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, boasting guest appearances from the likes of Keak da Sneak, B-Legit, Big K.R.I.T., and Killa Kyleon. Mainstream rap radio continued to ignore him for the most part, but the MC charted with his 2015 release 20 Lights (which featured Wiz Khalifa, Migos, and Curren$y) along with 2016's Hempire (which featured Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, and Atmosphere). Months later, Berner issued Packs, featuring Wiz Khalifa, Young Dolph, and French Montana. Maintaining his prolific run, Berner returned in 2017 with a trio of albums in the solo release, Sleepwalkin', and the collaborative albums Vibes (with Styles P) and Tracking Numbers (with Young Dolph). ~ Andy Kellman
