YGunna Kwon - Same N*gga (Exclusive Music Video) || Dir. Jayy ...

For those unfamiliar, San Jose is a city that sits on the tip of the South Bay opposite to iconic Bay Area cities like Oakland and San Francisco. While most of the cultural staples of the Bay comes from the East Bay and the City (San Francisco), the cities that compose the greater South Bay Area are just as ingrained in their roots as their eastern and northern counterparts. 

Cities like East Palo Alto, East Menlo Park, and East San Jose hold significance amongst Bay Area legends like E-40 and Keak Da Sneak further cementing their importance to the Bay as a whole. This sentiment is even further corroborated with legendary artists like the HoodStarz and Sean T putting on for their hometowns in East Palo Alto and Menlo Park whilst collaborating with aforementioned Bay Area icons like E-40 and 3X Krazy.

Most recently, artists like P-Lo and Suigeneris have carried the torch for the South Bay Area Rap scene with support given by one of the best labels in the game in EMPIRE. However, there’s one particular artist in San Jose by the name of Ygunna Kwon making waves with his deadly combination of vocals and smooth cadences. A perfect example of Kwon’s skillset is his new video for “Same” where Kwon showcases a Bay Area ballad for the ages.

Attaining close to 20k views in a month via Thizzler On The Roof, Kwon imbues a feel good anthem to the world that demonstrates his affinity for his hometown and crew. Whilst portraying his pride and love for San Jose, Kwon delivers a sermon concerning those who wish for his downfall and the romantic escapades his lifestyle employs. Ultimately, Kwon’s balance of his gifted vocals juxtaposed with Bay Area bounce makes “Same” a special track that needs to be played throughout the Bay and beyond.
