Oakland MC Z-man tops the bill at a hip-hop show at South Shore’s Whiskey Dick’s Saloon this weekend.

Z-Man will be joined by Bay Area hip-hop artists Tahaj Tha 1st, Otayo Dubb, Aukwin and Galactik at the Saturday night show. San Francisco producer and rapper Equipto will host the proceedings.

Z-Man’s most recent album, “California Brainwashed,” was released in 2013 and found the MC covering plenty of ground.

“On this album we find Z-Mainey addressing the state of the rap game, youngskins and apple pies living too fast, his life as an entertainer, and societies ills among other things,” according to an announcement for the album on

Otayo Dubb came up with Bay Area hip-hop group Co Deez’ but has since extended the group’s soul-influenced sound into his own hip-hop.

“Noting that underground rap encompasses a wide range of expression, Dubb defines his sound as ‘Blue Collar’ hip-hop (to paraphrase one of Co-Deez’ song titles), which he says everyday people can relate to,” according to a biography on “He doesn’t dumb down his lyrical content, yet he’s also careful not to go too far over people’s heads by “trying to be condescending or super-wordy.”

Equipto is best known for his work with fellow Bay Area rapper Andre Nickatina.

Whiskey Dick’s Saloon is located at 2660 Lake Tahoe Blvd. in South Lake Tahoe.
