Plenty of Oda fish in the sea part 2

Seiji Oda - Jinx
(From Wading In Shallow Water EP; 2021)

Seiji Oda - howuknowitsme?
(From YouTube; 2021)

Two songs which coulda been on my best of Seiji Oda playlist, different sounds which still find parallel lines on the Slap-Tranquilo scale. Seiji says he mixes the lo-fi with the Hyphy, I say he mixes the Makonnen with the Mac Dre. Now, I didn't care for Makonnen's music beyond a couple of tunes, but there's no doubt that echoes and richochets of Makonnen's sound can still be heard throughout Rap - just listen to Valee or Veeze for proof.

Flashback to the time some people got mad because I said Makonnen looked like Rickie from My So Called Life if he'd ate all the pies. Was I wrong, though?

What is it about the Bay that makes so many of their young rappers use their inspirations creatively to make dope music consistently?
