Hip Hop Isn't Dead... It Lives In The HOOD

Artist Name: Snatch'NGwap / C2daj
Song Title: Lick ft. QB aka Quincy Black

Calvin James Smith, aka C2daJ, was born February 13,1988 in Menlo Park, CA. Bred a Bay Area kid some of his musical influence come from other bay artists such as J Stalin, E-40, The Jacka, & Too Short. While also gaining inspiration from other artists including Tupac, Jadakiss, T.I, & Snoop Dogg.
Growing up with a love of music Calvin spent his teen years working on his freestyling and ended up writing his first verse at the age of 19. He met fellow artist and label mate Ronald “Ramdocious” McClain in 2007 and they just clicked. Freestyling together led to battling each other which led to the creation of their first group Da Mobstarz in 2009. After playing with a few different group names they officially became GWAP BOIZ and dropped their mixtape “The Takeover” in 2012.
Between the years of 2008-2013 the duo met and linked up with the rest of the current members of Snatch’N Gwap & dropped projects including “The Concept Mixtape” (collaboration with Igobythakid) & Snatch’N Gwaps “The Concept 1.5”. Fast forward to 2016 & C2daJ has recently formed the official Snatch’N Gwap record label, while simultaneously dropping his solo project “California Daze”! He took a short break after to work on hisself in the beginning of 2017 but he just dropped 2 new videos in September 2017 and Is gearing up to drop his new album “Street Views” October 13th 2017! He also has other projects in the works coming early 2018!
After years of setbacks, come ups, and fatherhood he managed to keep his determination, passion, and persevered through it all. C2daJ now has collaborated with multiple Bay Area & Sacramento artists and performed at many different venues including The Blue Lamp in Sacramento, CA, The Boardwalk in Orangevale, CA, and Club 6 in San Francisco.

This is just the beginning!
