You wanna know the definition of gas? Look no farther than East Oakland emcee Young Gully. Combining high octane lyricism with a wisdom acquired from years in the streets, Gully has built a reputation for "gassing" (Oakland slang for going hard) on every beat he touches. "Rappers have the voice of Oakland," says Gully - but unlike most Oakland rappers, he wants to use his voice to inspire the community, rather than perpetrate the same cycle of violence and drug abuse. "Oakland is a good city and it’s not just what’s on the news. But you can’t avoid the violence either."
