Roach Gigz's newest track "Vertigo" may leave your head spinning. The Bay Area lyricist lets loose a dizzying verbal barrage as the iconic Golden Gate Bridge morphs and melds behind his calmly braggadocious flow. Roach recognizes the bridge's iconic status, and muses that it is representative of the Bay Area's place in hip-hop: "The Golden Gate Bridge is the most well known symbol of the Bay Area there is. So shooting my video in front of the bridge shows pride in what I represent and lets the world know that I'm not, and my region is not, going anywhere."

Lancecape got one of the craziest MC's he knows to rock on this. Grimace Love is a name you shall never forget. He went in and destroyed the beat. 36 bars of craziness. From top to bottom, Grimace Love flips his flow to accompany the rhythm. With a lyrical prowess that is not to be taken lightly. He is in a league of his own and nobody could have done justice to this beat the way Grimace Love did.
