Cassow – Magic (Prod by TYuS)


Cassow never sends us his music – I  have no clue why – but we came across this short diddy recently on our own. Looks like it’s been getting some spin on the Soundcloud. Mellow per usual, it’s def worth a few listens. Peep.

Xperience – Evolve Away (Prod by Smoke)


Seattle’s Xperience is well known as a do it all, I’ve watched the Oldominion product rap, sing, and DJ at his own set , so I’m well aware of his talents, but this might be the first time I’ve seen him sing a full on song. No rap here, just clean vocals on the latest leak from the upcoming release of Heaven Noise recording’s All Your Friend’s Friends.

In related news, XP also let loose his #16BarChallenge over the weekend. Peep that HERE. You’re welcome.

PropaneLV x D. Shuts – Suicide Squeeze [Album Review]


Have you listened to PropaneLV’s new album, Suicide Squeeze yet?

Few Portland rap artists command the sort of attention that Propane seems to keep at his fingertips. Just this weekend, a colleague looking to downplay the rapper’s success said something to the effect of, ”He has like a million views, but does he do shows?”

Well let me tell you, Propane is actually approaching FIVE million YouTube views and he has a show TONIGHT downstairs at the Roseleand with Jon Bellion, in what makes for a rather sensical pairing of cinematically inclined crossover artists and a show that even casual fans should thoroughly enjoy.

Shabazz Palaces – Motion Sickness [OFFICIAL VIDEO]


Have you ever wanted to feel like you were on a acid trip while making fun of reality TV and imagining a undercover drug bust going down? Oh boy does Shabazz Palaces have a video for you. Some amazingly well produced visuals with a budget the size of which we don’t see too often on WOHM, but thats what you get when your signed to Sub Pop.

Q.Z.Tha Leader – Blood Stained Chanel (Prod.By CoDa) [Official Video]


PDX transplant QZ Tha Leader gets the assist from angel-voiced 18 year old Briana Marion for his latest single, Blood Stained Chanel, and something tells me we’ll be hearing from her again. A moody video from Martin Van London frames the release well. Not turn up music, this is a song you listen to.

Hanif on The Bar Exam


Portland laureate Hanif (fka Luck One) may be crashing at #FakeOswego while he’s in town for a few days, but I had to find this recent gem on my own via Kevin Nottingham. The following free-verse was recorded during a recent trip to the nation’s capital and captured by Radio Rahim. #BOARS #OutHere

From the depths of St. Johns, Rasheed Jamal grabs fellow Resistance members Mic Capes and Glenn Waco and plot on godly ascension. A vicious cypher-style track, Mt. Olympus takes me back to the heartfelt era of competitive rap tracks.

Very proud to introduce the latest track from Jamal’s highly anticipated upcoming album, Sankofa.

G Force – ERYKAH ft. Farnell Newton

g force

This is just what I needed this morning.  LA by-way-of-PDX’s G Force breaks out the drum set again and drops another remix, this time featuring trumpeter (and North Portland hero) Farnell Newton.  ERYKAH is a reboot of a Ms. Fat Booty’s (no disrespect…I mean she knows, right?) classic On & On, and it should be playing in every Starbucks in the nation.  Sip some burnt coffee & enjoy.  #OutHere

The mostly behind the beats member of The NuEra Crew, NEP raised Andrew Savoie drops a raw set of unmixed and unmastered beats he’s collected in his stash over the last couple of years. Dope for spitters who want somthin to vibe out and write to as well as pretty much anybody who likes to use beats as mood music for work or whatever. You know, music for life.
