This mixtape dropped way back in June. But I hesitated to post this simply because I’m not completely sure if this qualifies as San Diego music. The Seed consists of three Polynesian (I think, if I remember correctly?) artists who come from all over California. Uptown Swuite comes from the Bay. Kahlee and producer Adikt 1 currently live in San Diego but I believe they both hail from Los Angeles. Kahlee even reps Tre Dime Music, or 310, which is an LA area code.
But there is a lot of SD participation, including mixing from DJ Demon, cuts from Kutfather, and a guest verse from Blame One. And if you think about it in a roundabout way, not being from San Diego is kinda this very San Diego thing. San Diego is a city of transplants, whether military or otherwise. Blame it on the nine months of sunshine but SD is where people go to escape. SD attracts lots of drifters. Kahlee and Adikt drifted down from LA and now they’re putting solid roots down in San Diego. And y’know, they happen to be really good. If that works for Kutfather, that works for me. Enjoy.
