Mobb Music

Mobb Music is a style of west coast rap music that began in the San Francisco Bay Area in the late 1980s. The basic instrumental style is derived primarily from funk music, with a heavy focus on synthesizers, ultra low bass lines and Roland TR-808 drums. The lyrics tend to deal with same subject matter as G-Funk did in southern california (i.e. Sex, Violence, Drugs).

The sound of Mobb Music, can be attributed to a host of producers such as Mike Mosley, Sean T, One Drop Scott, Cellski, Ant Banks, JT the Bigga Figga, DJ Darryl, Khayree,Ric Roc, and Studio Tone. Bay Area hip hop artists, E-40, B-Legit, Suga-T, D-Shot, Too $hort, Mac Dre, San Quinn, The Luniz, RBL Posse, Dru Down, Mac Mall, Celly Cel, C-Bo, JT the Bigga Figga, 11/5, Cold World Hustlas, 3xCrazy, UDI, Guce, and Spice 1 are among the most prominent artists who contributed to the development of Mobb Music.

While the classic Mobb albums still sell very well througout Northern California, commercially it has been replaced in the region by a new form of bay area rap music called hyphy rap, which has a faster tempo and fits in better with current commercial trends. Many of the big artists from the golden era of Mobb Music are now adapting to the current format of bay area rap music, particularly the original pioneers of Mobb Music, E-40 and Too Short.
