The Big O

The Luniz and the boom-market for East Oakland rap

"You'd see him ridin', but he wasn't in the hood," Knum adds.
Two years ago at the Gavin convention in San Francisco, a large crowd waited in the supposed VIP line outside the door to a KRS-1 show. The promoter was not letting anyone in, it was raining, fools were getting wet, and it seemed like a riot was about to jump off. Then C-Note Co-President Chris "C&H" Hicks arrived with the Luniz in tow. Obviously peeved, Hicks banged on the door, yelling, "Yo man, let us in! It's C&H and the Luniz!!!" but to no avail. Today, though doors are opening nationwide for the Luniz, they promise not to shut them on the East O.

The Luniz play the KMEL Summer Jam Sat, Aug. 12, at the Shoreline Amphitheatre in Mountain View; call (510) 762-
