After the success of their 2009 collaboration album “Blow”, which sold an impressive 10,000 albums in 7 months and peaked at #31 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart, the two only thought it right to release another follow up classic. “Blow-Blocks & Boat Docks,” features Brisco (of Cash Money), Yukmouth, The Jacka, B-Legit, Lee Majors, RnB singer Matt Blaque and more. Fans will also be surprised to hear San Francisco rapper & and local Hip-Hop hero San Quinn on the record, considering Quinn and Messy had a controversial dispute that lead to some reciprocating dis-tracks.

Berner achieves a hard-hitting line up of local Bay Area Rap heroes and major West Coast luminaries featured on raw gritty beats.
