Announcement and updates on releases globally

San Quinn - Oh La Ay ft. Freeway | Prod. By Monk HTS

October 2, 2020 

Almost three decades into his career and San Francisco's own San Quinn shows no signs of slowing down. Frisco City’s Real Mayor has managed to release countless albums over the years while continuing to make hits and work with exciting new artists. Quinn's upcoming album,“I Wanna Smell My Roses,” on burgeoning SF label Audio Vandals is a new watermark work from the rapper that sees him exploring different styles and flows while maintaining his consistency for strong lyricism. Fully produced by fellow SF native Monk HTS, the album has San Quinn putting a classic hip-hop twist on the Bay Area mobb sound. 

The latest single by San Quinn is now here, a lyrical party track featuring veteran Philadelphia rapper Freeway. “Oh La Aye” sees the two vets speak on their hustling nature over an upbeat party vibe that’s perfect for the dancefloor or cruising in the whip. Both San Quinn and Freeway have gone through more hardships than the ordinary rapper and it's exhilarating to hear them sound as fired up as they were at the beginning of their careers. The song is available on all streaming platforms with a music video currently in production.

San Quinn is also available for press inquiries/interviews about “Oh La Aye” and his upcoming album “I Wanna Smell My Roses”. For opportunities to premiere the single, write-ups, or other inquiries, contact

San Quinn background:

Raised in San Francisco's notorious Fillmore District, San Quinn has appeared on countless recordings over the past three decades. At the age of 14, Quinn debuted on JT the Bigga Figga's classic 1991 posse track “The SFC” and instantly made a name for himself as Frisco's most vital rappers. Since then, his reputation for raw, streetwise lyricism has earned respect from fans and fellow artists worldwide, including legends like Scarface and Snoop Dogg. In 1994, Quinn appeared on Master P's first No Limit Records release,  "West Coast Bad Boyz."  He went on to release legendary albums such as “The Hustle Continues” (1996) and “The Rock: Pressure Makes Diamonds” (2006), also collaborating with other Bay Area notables like E-40, Mac Dre, Keak Da Sneak, and Messy Marv. He has numerous hits under his belt, such as “Hell Yeah” (#19 on 2006 Billboard Bubbling Under R&B/Hip-Hop Songs Chart), “Ayo for Yayo” with Andre Nickatina, and the Hyphy Era classic “San Francisco Anthem.” In 2013, the hit show Sons of Anarchy featured Quinn's single "Paid" with Los Rakas. Quinn's next album, “I Wanna Smell My Roses,” will be dropping early 2021 on Audio Vandals and represents the culmination of his 30 years in the rap game. Produced exclusively by San Francisco up-and-comer Monk HTS, this album provides a cinematic soundscape for San Quinn to reflect on his impressive life and career, neither of which are showing any signs of slowing down.
