Released on 415 Day (April 15th), Zaytoven Presents: Fo15 is a fully San Francisco affair, carried out in its entirety by SF natives: the CEO, producer, artists, project manager, graphic designer, publicist, videographers, studio chef, etc., all hail from San Francisco. Conceptualized and A&R’d by EMPIRE CEO Ghazi, project is anchored by Lil Bean, a native of the now-demolished Geneva Towers apartments who lends his smoothly melodic flow to nine tracks of the project’s ten tracks, and rising star ZayBang, a fellow Geneva Towers product whose snarling flow rips a hole through eight. Rounding out the all-star cast of characters are scene flagbearer Lil Pete, a Fillmore rapper who crushes his verse on opening track “The Click,“KxNG LLAMA, a Hunters Point-bred local hero behind the Bay Area smash “Body Bags,” Prezi, a hooper-turned-rapper from Hunters Point whose breakout “Do Better” (Remix) has over 60 million combined views, and LilYee, yet another Fillmore native who flashes a plainspoken wisdom on his verses and hooks.
A paean to a flourishing rap scene and to the city’s indomitable spirit, Fo15 gifts the rap fans of San Francisco with a purely homegrown set of slaps. Featuring the snarling ZayBang & Lil Yee-featuring single “All My Guys” and the introductory posse cut “The Click,“Zaytoven Presents: Fo15 is available everywhere via EMPIRE.
