JT the Bigga Figga, Mac Mall and Ray Luv appear in this rare behind the scenes footage at Ray Luv's LAST NITE video shoot directed by 2Pac.

Ray Luv, a native of the South Park district of Santa Rosa, California came on the scene of San Francisco Bay Area rap with his 1992 single "Get Ma Money On!" off his "Who Can Be Trusted?" EP. One of the producers of the album was the Khayree. Ray Luv formed a rap group named Strictly Dope with 2Pac in the late 80s. In 1995, he released "Forever Hustlin," which put him on the map locally. Ray Luv was part of the rap scene that grew out of Vallejo, California during the 1990s. Acts such as Mac Mall, Dubee Aka Sugawolf, E-40, Mac Dre, Young Lay and others put Vallejo's rap scene on the map during the 1990s. San Francisco based radio station 106.1 FM KMEL helped these acts get (locally) famous by giving them much deserved air time. Ray Luv is also a part of the group The Link Crew.

Along with better-known rappers like E-40 and 2Pac, Mac Mall was one of several who helped put the Cali Bay Area on the map in the mid- to late '90s as a hotspot in the rap game. He collaborated with many of the Bay Area's best producers -- Ant Banks, Khayree, Michael Mosley, and Rick Rock -- and helped define the scene's identity, particularly with his most successful album, Untouchable (1996), which featured perhaps his best-known song, "Get Right." His career simmered out quickly, however. He returned in 1999 after a three-year absence and few listeners seemed to notice. Mall was no longer on a major label and the Bay Area scene was no longer the hotspot it had been a few years earlier. Given his brief moment in the spotlight and his sudden decline, it was perhaps no surprise when Mall changed his style in 2001, incorporating a surprising amount of spirituality on his Immaculate album.

San Fransisco, CA based rapper / producer / record company owner. JT The Bigga Figga is one of the most notable independent figures in the bay area hiphop scene. He started his own label Get Low Recordz in 1992 at the age of only 18.

JT has collaborated with a wide range of artists in northern California, but also with artists such as Snoop Dogg, Juvenile, Daz Dillinger and Kurupt. JT also "found" and signed The Game before he joined with 50 Cent's G-Unit. JT owns the rights for about three unreleased The Game albums.
