A nickname used in reference to Oakland, California. Founded in 1852, The Town is the eighth-largest city in the U.S., but what makes it stand out amongst other American cities is its diverse communities,distinct neighborhoods and turfs, and its culturally rich activities such as Sydeshows, Going 18 Dummy and the historically significant Pimp Game. The Town has birthed some of the most notable musicians and rappers of the 20-21st century, such as Tower of Power, Sly and The Family Stone,Too Short, Richy Rich,Keak Da Sneak, Keyshia Cole and DU. Also emerging from Oakland were The Black Panthers, The East Bay Dragons, The Hells Angels, and many other impacting culturally iconic groups.
