MTV's "My Block: The Bay" Segment

Here's that MTV piece about the Bay Area hip hop scene that I mentioned the other day. I don't have the HTML skills to embed the Windows Media version in my post so here's the YouTube version below (it looks like YouTube decided to take a shit right before I posted this so check back later and the video should be here) and if you wanna sit through a long ass download for a much better quality Windows Media version you can click here. Or just watch the repeats on MTV2 and MTV. Also here's a nice article from MTV to accompany the piece.

It's pretty decent although I feel some of the artist profiles were too short (San Quinn for one) and a lot of people who really should have been involved were left out (The Jacka for one). But I can't really complain because:

A) At least MTV did something about the Bay.


B) I'm sure they didn't purposely say "We don't want such and such person." I imagine it was just a matter of how much time they had alloted and whether or not certain people could make it or not.

Whatever. Like I said at least they did a positive piece about the Bay Area. What's with those chicks at the beginning and their totally scripted conversation though? That was a strange intro.

Yeah, the intro was so phony. Do they always do that with every My Block show?

Honestly, I don't know if they do one of those type of intros for all the "My Block" pieces. I hope not.

I can't believe that during final editing no one spoke up and said, "Damn, that intro is corny as fuck. Can we cut that shit please?"

Man San Francisco needed more rappers, like Guce, messy marv, Gangsta flea, Andre Nickatina. They should have mentioned Rappin 4 Tay As well
