FIVE SPOT: Yukmouth, formerly of The Luniz, comes to BackBar SoFa.

Before he went gold as a solo artist with 1998’s Thugged Out: The Albulation, Yukmouth was one half of The Luniz, the crew who dropped what is arguably the greatest weed-smoking anthem ever to come from the Bay Area (and there’ve been a lot): “I Got 5 On It.” Since then the Oakland rapper has had a prolific and inspiring career, from starting Smoke-A-Lot records in ’98, to this year’s two-part JJ Based on a Vill Story. The latter, a concept record about coming up in Oakland, is some of the best work he’s ever released and shows he’s far more than just a one-hitter quitter.
