While a lot of people have been using the term “New Oakland” to talk about the influx of wealthier residents in recent years, N.E.W. Oakland stands for something else entirely. I got the north, got the east, got the west with me, rhymed Mistah F.A.B. on his hyphy-era hit of the same name, with a hook that promoted neighborhood unity and Town pride. In a similar spirit of camaraderie, several rappers who are also Oakland natives have come together for FreeSpirit Presents: N.E.W. Oakland. FreeSpirit is the music collective and lifestyle brand of West Oakland rappers Beejus and Oops, the latter of whom is performing at the show. Legendvry, a thoughtful lyricist with a commanding voice, just released his uptempo new single, “Easy,” and has hinted on Twitter that he’ll be performing unheard material from his forthcoming full-length project, Præy for the Weæk, at the show. Conscious freestyle wiz R.I.C.O. G. and Harris the KnowItAll are also performing — and the show promises two special guests, too. Fellow rapper J. Lately will host and Fabes will be behind the decks.
