The creators of 93 Still and Bizarre Tribe: A Quest To The Pharcyde are back with another remix project. This time Gummy Soul presents Bap City, a video remix project reinterpreting the grimey and gritty side of hip hop’s golden era, inspired by the iconic TV show Rap City.
“Everyday in high school, I would come home and watch Rap City,” says Wally Clark, founder of Gummy Soul. “That’s how I would discover some of the more underground artists of the time, such as Teflon and Smoothe Da Hustler. I wanted to create a block of videos that could be viewed together, and would capture the essence of watching Rap City in the 90s.”
Bap City includes drum-heavy reworks of material by AZ, Kool G Rap, Artifacts, The Beatnuts, Tha Alkoholiks, Diamond D, and more. Watch the full video mixtape below, download the eight remixes for free, or get the videos on a limited edition DVD.
Download our free OnTape app for iPhone/iPad to enjoy the Bap City video remixes on your mobile devices, including other The Find video playlists. It’s not our own app, but a collaboration with video mixtape platform DragOnTape. Speaking of which, let us know if you would like an official The Find app.
