At this point, it's impossible to ignore SOB x RBE, the young Vallejo group whose self-titled album quickly thrust them to the top of the Bay Area rap scene last year. (The project even made our top-ten local albums of 2017 list.) Between Yhung T.O.'s sweet melodies, DaBoii's gravelly delivery, Slimmy B's charming lisp, and Lul G's rapid-fire bars, the crew's four members have a dynamic, irresistible chemistry that's earned them legions of devoted fans.
When SOB x RBE played the Regency Ballroom last year, their show sold out so quickly the venue added a second date -- and then a third. Their UC Theatre show in Berkeley also sold out, which is why fans may want to get prepared for their Mar. 17 Fox Theater show in Oakland. It's hosted by KMEL's Big Von, with openers Cuban Doll -- a female rapper from Texas with her own underground buzz -- plus Oakland's ALLBLACK and Guapdad 4000.
