FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: GURP FEST 2010, FRI. DEC. 17th @ CLUB 6 SF
In the last couple of years, the “crud coalition” (as the late great Killa Sha would say) known as GURP CITY has become the most talked-about wild bunch in San Francisco Hip-Hop. Bringing music fans from all over the country to Club 6 in the Tenderloin District, GURP FEST 2010 focuses on reunions, big names in the scene and fan favorites from around the Bay Area and beyond.
This year’s fest promises to incite total ruckusness: Headliner TOPR has curated what is undoubtedly the strongest lineup to date, and has also expanded the event to include more scratch and megamix DJs than ever before. Beginning 9:30 PM FRIDAY DECEMBER 17TH @ CLUB 6, GURP FEST will blister San Francisco with the wide range of local and distant styles that rap and DJ fans have come to expect from “The City In A Bottle,” a.k.a. GURP CITY, check the logo, relly.
The fest culminates on Saturday night at Gestalt on 16th Street in the Mission District for DJ Toph One’s 40th Birthday Bash, where GURP CITY MCs and DJs will “cut heads” in an off the cuff crew session, dive bar style.
The festivities actually jump off TOMORROW NIGHT: Dec. 15th Wednesday at this party featuring other local legends and up and comers- Bored Stiff, Gas Mask Colony and Spank Pops:

The story as I know it (and I assure you I'm wrong) goes something like: Marz made this mixtape while still in high school in Millbrae to capitalize off the local noteriety he received after crushing some soft duck at a lunchtime DJ battle in the school's courtyard judged by DJ Disk. Marz has this battle on VHS tape and I hope this encourages him to digitize this footage and upload it to the inna-webba-nets. BUMP SPACE TRAV!!
