The bay area has laid fame to many styles over the years but the early nineties were magical with the makings of mobb and funk music. Still somewhat accustomed to today it was what started nearly two decades ago that makes fans reminisce. While the bay was pumping out now considered classics, up in the rainy 206 artists were feeling their own kind of way ready to put Seattle on the map. Slapping the city on their back like they owned it a group called Strait From The 206 was one of the first from the Northwest to start making mob music. Most likely a precursor to their future because the group would later become known as Mob Related and drop the classic “Mob Related Funk” in 1998. Singles were pushed like actual albums during this time with group members Cashflo, NV1, and Mac Pimpin, releasing this single “Emerald City Street Life” on even then Triple Gold Records. Simple as the artwork might be fans might rejoice as it was done by famed Phunky Phat Graph-X.
