The Bay Area, located in Northern California, is one of our nation's most densely populated metropolitan areas. It is home to the 'Tech Mecca', Silicon Valley and one of the world's most popular tourist destinations - San Francisco. It's been long overdue but 'The Bay', which it is commonly referred to by its residents, gets national recognition from a huge media outlet - MTV. August 2nd (today) was officially declared Bay Day on MTV Jams. This day consisted of nearly 24hrs of music videos from your favorite Bay Area artists. All of today's viewers were spoiled with classics from Bay Area legends, such as 2Pac, E-40, Spice 1, Too Short, Tony! Toni! Toné!, En Vogue, etc. Even the younger generation got its shine today - Big Rich, Mistah F.A.B., Kafani, Locksmith,...the list goes on and on. The most important thing is that the pioneers for a lot of the slang, flow, dress, game, etc. got what they rightfully deserved today - the spotlight.
Twitter, a Bay Area company and one of the most popular social networking sites, played an integral part in the success of MTV's Bay Day. As Mistah F.A.B.'s hit single, "Hit Me On Twitter", was played every hour during the day, 'Bay Day' was catapulted to the number 2 trending topic on Twitter. That's huge considering its vast user base. I personally would like to thank everyone that made Bay Day a reality and also those who showed ongoing support. Without the Bay Area's diversity and originality, Faze Apparel would not exist. BAY UP and stay FEARLESS and ZEALOUS people!!!
