Recently Lane Gang rapper Big 24 Backdoor released his music video for his new song, “Get Exposed,” . In the absence of Lane Gang mastermind Jimmy Wopo, Big 24 BackDoor and the rest of the Hill Street crew are back at it with clean visuals, filmed in California. With flashy cars as the backdrop and with the rest of the Lane Gang alongside, Big 24 BackDoor drips onto the scene with authority in his fresh new visual.

“They call me Big Duece, Big 24, Backdoor. The Lane is Bedford Whiteside and Chauncey, we were like a music group that we called Money Lane. When we started trying to push little things here and there, I wasn’t taking it too seriously but then when Wop passed I wanted to keep his name alive. Wop was the best out of Pittsburgh ever. Lane Gang for ever. Thats all I’m doing, I’m just trying to hold Wop down,” Big 24 BackDoor said.

This visual for “Get Exposed” is being released in support Big 24’s July 4th release called, BackDoorSeason. Coinciding with his performance in Pittsburgh opening up for rapper No Cap, the project will be available on all digital service providers including Apple and Spotify.

“We still on the Lane everyday and we help out the kids and try to contribute to the community to help,” Big 24 BackDoor said about life in Pittsburgh. “No cap the way they rap out here, the shi* is hard. We like gangsta rap a lot out here, but I like the drip and mu’fuckas with they own style. They own shit, like they don’t try to copy nobody.”

In the coming weeks the Lane Gang will continue to put out visuals from BackDoor and his most recent project.

“I got another video coming soon and we gonna drop that in the next few weeks too,” BackDoor added. “I’m looking for more shows out of town and I’m trying to keep dropping. I’ll prob drop another tape, geta big feature. I’m trying to make it out of Pittsburgh, I’m tired of being here, but at the same time I want to put on for the city and I know I gotta get out to make it.”

If you are looking for ransom I can tell you I don't have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills. Skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.

Skinny Million$ – ‘Kelly Sl8er’ [ALBUM STREAM]

This past Friday San Fernando Valley rapper Skinny Million$ released his album dubbed, Kelly Sl8er. The project is Skinny Million$ third release overall and his…

This past Friday San Fernando Valley rapper Skinny Million$ released his album dubbed, Kelly Sl8erThe project is Skinny Millionthird release overall and his debut effort with Los Angeles based record label, VerySpecial Music. 

Skinny Million$ grew up in a musical family and always knew that rap music was his path to realizing his life’s goals.  Inspired by watching his older brother get a record deal, while also participating in choir and other musical outlets as a youth, Skinny began to write his first raps around the age of 8 years old. The Kelly Sl8er project is a culmination of his life since then and looking forward with his Valley Waves movement .

“This Kelly Sl8er project is a project that’s been accumulating my whole life. Even though this is my 3rd project that’s how I feel. It’s fully produced by Mitchell Dolphin and I believe it shows my growth. It’s about being my own style and it’s about me being the best at what I do. Kelly Slater is the best at what he does, he’s the Tony Hawk of surfing. My shit is water based too, with the Valley Waves we’ve been pushing,” Skinny Million$ explained. “From my section I feel like I’m the best at what I do. Me and Mitchell have been working for a few years on this sound. It sounds like the end of Summer vibes and it’s all about flexing on everything that’s not you. It’s about having a good time and being your own person at the end of the day.”

Growing up just 30 minutes from Los Angeles city limits, Skinny Millionwas bred in Pacoima in the eastern part of the San Fernando Valley where skating, graffiti and street culture are paramount. Rather than growing up around the stereotypical Valley teens fixated on the malls and a preppy lifestyleSkinny Milliongrew up experiencing a wide range of cultures, which ultimately influenced his music. 

“A big part of my story or struggle is being an artist from the Valley because we are in LA County, but people from LA city, treat us like we’re outsiders.  Like, ‘Oh you not from LA.’ Which is true because we are like 30 minutes away, but we’re in the same area,” Skinny Millionexplained..  “So I created the Valley Wave to show people how we get it out here. No matter what – we can do what we want. We don’t have to sound like LA, but we are still a part of this shit because we in the city, we part of this shit. I’m from Pacoima, East Valley, it don’t look like Porter Ranch, Woodland Hills, Northridge, but they still call it the Valley.  On my side its more skate culture, tagging, street culture. That’s why I’m cool with all the Hispanics and Cholos and all that. I really want to show the culture of the Valley in my videos and how you can be one nigga and just soak up game from so many different cultures. There’s so much to do out here, you just have to tap in.”

Led by his music video for the track “Hol’ Up Wait” Skinny and VerySpecial Music have made a push this Summer that will not only put Skinny Millionon the map on the LA scene, but as a whole the project Kelly Sl8er puts a stamp on a new era of “Valley” culture by bringing awareness to the reality of living in all parts of the San Fernando Valley. 

Hol Up Wait came out very crispy and it had all my niggas in it. Nine times out of ten it’s hard to get all of your niggas together in one spot and we actually did it. That shit came out very crispy and it really set the tone for me really putting my foot out there for the Valley in the industry. Im basically letting people know I’m fucking with Very Special Music Group. That was our first really big release so that video is a big deal for me.

Going forward, On August 16th Skinny Millionwill be hosting an album release party at the Hall of Fame clothing store on Fairfax in Los Angeles.
