CLYDE CARSON, 2003 san leandro, ca photo by d-ray
Clyde Carson was introduced to the world as a member of The Team back in 2004. Their regional hits amassed them a little attention during the hyphy movement, but unfortunately they, like many of their peers, never really enjoyed all of the fruits of their potential. Since then, Clyde, who always stood out in the group, has become a budding solo star and businessman. The Oakland native, true to the town’s hustling nature, created his own energy drink, Hyphy Juice. He’s also signed to Capitol Records through The Game’s Black Wallstreet imprint. With enough marketable characteristics to make him a star, this image of Clyde pre-fame is bound to be a collectors’ item some day.
