Mistah F.A.B. Forms Group N.E.W. Oakland

Bay area rapper Mistah F.A.B. has teamed with upcoming rappers Beeda Weeda and J-Stalin to form the group N.E.W. Oakland.

An album from the group will be released through Town Thizzness, which is a new partnership between Thizz Nation and its distributor SMC.

The goal of the new union is to introduce a new crop of Bay Area rappers into the music business, according to Thizz Nation's CEO, Stretch.

"The concept is to take buzz worthy acts or conceptual projects from Oakland, CA- make great albums, sell them cheap to introduce them and slowly but surely start building fans," Thizz Nation CEO Stretch explained to AllHipHop.com.

Thizz Nation released two high profile Bay area albums in 2007, including Da Bidness, which featured PSD Tha Drivah, Keak Da Sneak & Messy Marv and Mistah F.A.B.'s Da Baydestrian.

In addition to the N.E.W. Oakland album, Town Thizzness will release three solo albums by upcoming Bay Area rappers.

Beeda Weeda's Da Thizzness is due in stores August 26, J-Stalin's Gas Nation hits shelves on September 23, while G-Stack's Dr. Purp Thump has a release date of October 21.
