Just as hip-hop itself is inseparable from its birthplace in the Bronx, every aspiring MC is eternally connected to the neighborhood they grew up in. â€œKeys 2 the Cityâ€ explores the bond between community and MCâ€™s by following them to the barbershops, BBQ joints, basketball courts, swap meets and schoolyards that shaped them into the artists we admire today. Over the next 8 weeks (from December 1st to February 1st), fans will get to know the MCâ€™s, DJâ€™s, OGâ€™s and architects of an LA hip-hop scene poised to jump from regional to national notoriety.
From West Coast gangster living with Dre protÃ©gÃ©s Bishop Lamont and The Game to Mid-City with Murs, down to Crooked Iâ€™s Long Beach to Melrose with The Knux, burritos with Blu, b-ball with U-N-I, chili fries with J. Davey, and street-wear stores with Pac Div.
