EDITORS’ NOTES

Representing for the East Bay's Livewire collective, Philthy Rich & The Hoodstarz (Band-Aide and Scoot) have been doing it big for years now. They're hugely popular in and around Oakland, if relatively unknown elsewhere. On The Conspiracy (hosted by DJ Racks), they break us off with 18 tracks overflowing with hard-knocking West Coast beats produced by local favorites like The Mekanix, Traxamillion, and AK-47, among others. Lyrically, they cover familiar territory—being on the block, partying, repping their clique, etc.—but bring enough charisma, humor, and tight beats to keep things interesting. If you're down with the whole post-hyphy, Thizz-centric scene, this will be right up your alley. They're joined by a grip of other likeminded rappers, including Lil Rue ("Even the Odds"), Too Short and Richie Rich ("So Good Remix"), Lil Blood ("His Mama Cry"), and Messy Marv ("Still Trip'n"). Also key is "I Represent It Remix" featuring J Stalin, San Quinn, Willie Joe, and more.
