Burn a dollar bill and just stare at it while you play this one, Raz back bearing his hustlers soul over some cinematic sounds. Time is everything, and money means nothing.
Cognitive Dissonance: Part 2 Coming Soon
We back! Episode #2 of We Out Here Radio will air today on Juice Radio @ 5pm PT. This month, producer/rapper Stewart Villain joins Mac Smiff and I as we interview our guest, discuss my Damian Lillard sighting, Stew & DJ Fatboy’s tag team-style stinging contests, and pretty much clown each other for an hour straight. Today’s episode also features music from Stewart’s fellow Soar Loser members Vinnie Dewayne & Myke Bogan, Tacoma’s Cally Reed, PDX’s Amine, as well as unreleased music from the Villain himself.

Hometown hero Trox recently announced his upcoming collaboration with Sac-Town MC, C-Plus. Rentals - en EP – will be available early 2015, but they were nice enough to leave us with a teaser. Check it #OutHere.
That said, Trox definitely needs a WOHM sticker on his laptop. C’mon Troxie, let’s get it.
Portland-based producer Sam “Samarei” Waldo first caught my attention when he produced Strange Fruit for Hanif (the artist formerly known as Luck One) in Spring of ’13. Since then, the Portland State music composition major has continued to work at his craft, teaming with Green Luck Music Group and producing for artists near (Illmaculate, Rey Totem, BigMo, Keegan Baurer) and far (MC Lars, Open Mic Eagle, MC Lars) with his distinctly musical sound.
The laid-back artist recently showed out at this month’s iStandard Producer Showcase in Portland, and before he went on to win the thing, we had a quick conversation in which he excitedly let me know that he had a tape coming out soon. I thought that by “soon” he meant winter, but when this gem showed up in my inbox this last weekend, I must admit I was equal parts shocked and impressed.
In addition to some of the usual suspects (listed above), Best In Class also features contributions from Philadelphia nerdcore star Random, Seattle’s XP and J. Pinder, as well as Portland heavy hitters Farnell Newton, Tope, Epp, Rasheed Jamal, Glenn Waco and Mic Capes. We Out Here Magazine is beyond proud to premiere this amazing project, and we hope you enjoy it as much as we do. We also took some time to talk to Sam about the project, so read on as you listen in. #OutHere
Turtle knows Fall does not mean its time to turn down your active level. Although if you haven’t harvested enough skrill to survive the winter you might wanna get your hustle up cuase the winter is rough enough to interrupt life. Up in the SEA Turtle and the Nu Era Crew threw a release party for the video in Belltown (Check out a lil release party footage below) #KeepSummerAlive2014
NW newcomer, Bishop Bishop, put out a promising project with Seattle’s mega-productive production team HDxMulla. Only 22, the young rapper boasts a distinctly clean sound over dirty production. The 14 track project is kind of all over the place, but I swear, Tacoma is a breeding ground for dope rappers.
Might have to see about Drew getting that interview. #OutHere
Pyrex Drex didn’t take much time to follow up May’s The ReFIX Sessions Vol. 1 with a sequel. The second installment follows the ADHD direction of the first, dropping single free verses over 5 proven beats to create short songs for an EP you can get through in 10 minutes or less. Unless you hit that rewind button… and you might hit that button a few times. No features, all Drex, check out out.
I’ve been hearing about this Biggie exhibit at One Grand Gallery since early this week, and I’ve definitely been planning to make the trip. So naturally, when DJ Nature let me know that town staple Live & Direct was partying this Saturday AT the gallery for it’s final day, I went ahead and made plans. Oh, and it’s FREE.
You can show up as early as 2, and stay as late as 9, but music starts at 6. I particularly like this timeframe because it allows me to hop over to kick it with WOHM’s own DJ Dizz at the Rose Bar afterwards for The Rewind. If I just planned your Saturday for you, you are welcome and see you there. If I didn’t, I’m sorry and promise to try harder next time. Not really.
Heaven Noise Recordings has a promising new compilation coming up. All Your Friend’s Friends will feature production from Smoke M2D6 in which he exclusively uses samples pulled from indie rock label K Records to create original hip-hop records.
The first single, Cynic Syndrome, is a clean introduction to the project – slated for a November 11 release – and the promo video provides an encouraging view into what else you might expect. Naturally, you can find both right here.
