Culture Clash SF was a veritable who’s who of Bay Area hip hop last night at the Regency Ballroom. Triple Threat (Apollo, Shortkut & Vinroc) took the top spot.  B-Love took some pics.

Dirty Bird brought out Pharoahe Monch & Too $hort

Triple Threat surprised the crowd a personalized version of “Nuthin’ But A G-Thang”  and an appearance by Crystal Waters

(side of the stage filming is never the greatest, but you get the idea…)
