Making The Rounds...

Welcome to the Pacific Standard, a blog aiming to keep your fingers on the pulse of the Bay Area hip-hop scene. We will be showcasing the Bay Area's many artists and labels. We are also bringing attention to the thought provoking journalists and their articles, as well as the cutting-edge Dj's and their events. By offering offering exclusive content and presenting a macro-view of the Bay's hip-hop community we are putting our diverse scene and thriving entities on display. We hope you will see what makes this one of the best regions in the world. So wipe your feet before you come in and please feel free to spread the word.
