Oakland's Mistah Fab: 'My City Needs Me'

Categories: Hip-Hop, Video
He's still mad at Al Davis
It's been a dark year for Oakland hip-hop -- at least judging from the videos. The latest in a string of WTF-is-going-on-in-this-town rhymes comes from none other than the former prince of hyphy, Mistah Fab. Over dramatic strings and a stuttering beat, his "My City Needs Me" laments the murders, the pimps, the missing children, the poverty -- it's no advertisement for Ron Dellums' Oakland. Key lyric: "I come from a city with absolutely nothing." Watch it after the jump.

Here it is, Fab's newest video, "My City Needs Me." Call it the rapper's style of social service. And man, are those happy days of hyphy long gone.
