When you intertwine subgenres of West Coast Gangsta’ Rap, Motown swing, Gangsta’ funk and sprinkle heavy doses of Reggie Noble aka Redman’s influential style; you have arrived in the world of VintageDOP’s #CrateBangin’E.
Two of the dopest DJ’s (Dawhud & Luvva J UltraMEGA) taking you through the life of DJ – #CrateBangin’. Dawhud’s lengthty resume includes his legitimate status as a beatsmith, having been haled by one DJ Premier for his 2014 hit single “Battle Anybody” in addition to being recognized as a Hip-Hop aficionado and scholar. Luvva J brings to the table years as a writer, artist, producer and executive – having been part of The Jacka, Equipto, Million Dollar Dream and Andre Nickatina’s most successful releases amidst a lengthy resume in business. Thus the collaboration of these two Lacey/Olympia-area (East Tanglewilde) vets makes for an engaging audio trek.

Sexy tracks like “Relax Yourself” and “Easy Day” set the vibe you’ll want to non-stop, lip lock with your boo to.
