(Crocodile) It is my first time in San Francisco, and my lover's best friend, who used to live in Seattle, now lives in the Mission District. My lover's best friend is a rising DJ. Her bedroom is packed with old and new rap records. She plays me everything that is important to her. And the most important record of the moment is Souls of Mischief's 93 'Til Infinity. Because Souls of Mischief are from East Oakland, bars and parties all across the Bay Area are playing their record from start to end. This is the birth of Left Coast hiphop.93 'Til Infinity shares its name with its most popular track. There is not a week that closes without its four minutes being filled by the sad melodies and pounding beats that make "93 'Til Infinity" one of the highest aesthetic achievements in hiphop production. The music says the same thing as the words. It is always about the diamond infinity of moments that, in glittering rings, radiate from 1994 until the present, the now, the moment that's being crystallized by the sorrowful soul of the looped electric piano, the lonely blow of the Pete Rockish horn, and the man-machine compression of the drum machine.
