Oh Dang!, along with Hood Scope, Muni Diaries, Doc Pop and other San Francisco bloggers, was invited to attend Flip Video Night at AT&T Park on Sept. 1 and videoblog from the Giants game (the Giants smashed the Rockies that night, by the way). We thought it only right to bring out San Francisco native and Fillmore representative DaVinci. An SF giant in his own right, DaVinci's held the city down with his debut album, The Day the Turf Stood Still--a grim examination of gentrification and urban renewal. "When the public schools shut down, murder rates shoot up / What else is an inner-city family left to do but / pack it up and move it out or sack it up and get it in / Cut the education, now we racin' for them dividends," DaVinci raps on "Aristocrat."
While DaVinci's debut earned him national acclaim and recognition, he keeps the city on his back and his raps soaked in SF culture. He came through and laced Oh Dang! with a tribute freestyle to his home team. And we caught it all on our new custom Flip cam, thanks to the good folks at Urgent Content and Flip Video.
