Locals Only: The Bay Area

Now this a new segment I'm starting, Locals Only and it's only going to feature local undiscovered artists that are on their way to a bright future.

Aris Jerome
I've had the pleasure of following this young local director on Tumblr and even communicated a few times and shared my thoughts on his work. He's a video director with a mean knack of creating some dope visuals for music. The reason why he's mentioned in this post is because each one of the videos that will be included with this post have been directed by Aris.

You can show your support by following him on his Twitter, Facebook, Vimeo, Official Website and Tumblr.

Ya Boy

Ya Boy - Cali from Aris Jerome on Vimeo.

This MC has been doing his thing for a while now. I remember listening to his "100 Bars" series which are executed with lyrical precision. He's currently signed to Akon's Konvict Music record label. Follow him on Twitter.

Los Rakas

Los Rakas feat. Faviola - Abrazame (Uproot Andy Hold Yuh) from Aris Jerome on Vimeo.

I don't have the slightest idea about the lyrical content of this song because it's in Spanish but musically this song is undeniably great and irresistible. These young artists will get the recognition they deserve, they are unbelievably talented. Check out their official website.

Roach Gigz

Roach Gigz - Magic Gas from Aris Jerome on Vimeo.

Roach Gigz - Pop Off from Aris Jerome on Vimeo.

I find this individual entertaining whether it's lyrics wise and sound wise. His style is something I find different. Make sure to check his official website, and Twitter
