Representing Sacramento's "Oak Park" Community, is the duo Mula Gang, consisting of of twin brothers Mula & Polo. Growing up in the heart of Sacramento, Mula Gang combine the struggle they have seen at a young age, with a rhythmic and melodic flow to establish a unique take on the modern trap sound. They released a project at the end of 2016 called Twin Stories, solely produced by June On The Beat and features from IamSu! Since then, they have built a strong buzz in the Bay Area. Their new project CH.1, (short for Chosen 1s) is set to drop later this spring. The 1st song "Flip It" is produced by super producer Zaytoven.
