Streets Of The Bay
Label: Faeva Afta
Rising Bay Area emcee Mistah F.A.B. conjures up Mac Dre's surname (Andre Hicks) early and often on this EP. F.A.B. doesn't have Dre's charisma -- though, to be fair, not many do -- but on "Nation of Thizzlam," "Supa Sic Wit It" and "Brush Em Off" the East Bay emcee projects the same unselfconscious euphoria and chemically-induced goofiness that made Dre the reigning icon of the Bay's hyphy movement.
