yes . the sound we have from so many different artist in are camp is most definitely different . we here at dlk enterprise pick and choose who we won't on or camp not just anybody can hop on and get in . with that being said all are artist work with other bay area artist so you will here familiarity coming from some albums and songs ....

it seems seams like in the bay are there is a lot of rap happening?
yeah the rap game is thick in the bay so much talent but instead of a group of piranhas that feed together its more like a free for all . every man for its self i think if the bay came together and truly supported one another there would be no limit to the success that could come . there so much money in just the bay that if we did buy from are neighbor and not look out of state for are goods it would be profitable for everyone
