"San Diego isn't all swimsuits, sunburns, and palm trees," according to hip-hop website BallerStatus.net. "It's also Dickies suits, burners [handguns], and pounds of trees [marijuana]. That's the 'Daygo' the City doesn't want you to hear about, that gets swept under the rug, and that's exactly what Mitchy Slick is rapping about."

According to Slick, "San Diego look[s] real pretty, on the outside. But where I'm from, San Diego is really on some Blood and Crip sh--. It's really got this sh-- going on. I don't glorify it; I put it to the forefront because we really get done bad in San Diego. I want you to be aware of what's going on because I know my folks down there are struggling. We don't have a lot of opportunities being Black people. [The city is] dominated by business and the tourism type of sh--, and you don't hear a lot of sh-- going down in San Diego 'cause they don't want it to distract the money flow down there. But we're nowhere near that."

Mitchy Slick's upcoming album Urban Survival Syndrome is due September 12. "I did this shit all by myself," he says. "I'm talking about every aspect, from picking the producers to sequencing the album."
