Preview: Andre Nickatina and Dru Down at Agenda

In Clubs, Music

Andre Nickatina and Dru Down, two of the best rappers to come out of the Bay Area during the 1990s golden era, are bringing 20 year’s worth of drug, sex and hood rhymes to Agenda’s three-day weekend bash on Sunday night.

Nickatina, best known for d-boy raps and sticky hooks like “Ayo for Yayo,” emerged from San Francisco’s Fillmore rap scene in 1992 and built an underground following with more than 20 releases and steady touring schedule through outposts large and small. He’s been on a hot streak lately with a feature on The Jacka’s 2009 hit “Glamorous Lifestyle” and two new singles leading up to the 4/20 release of his next album.
