Trailblazer Flash Mob At Lloyd Center

RIPCITY
  

Contrary to popular belief, the Seahawks aren’t the only pro team making NW waves. In honor of the recent playoff berth, Yung Jordan, DJ OG One and Andre Miller of the Blazer Gang organized a rather successful flash mob at Portland’s Lloyd Center.

I haven’t heard the official count, but the video seems to indicate that there were hella people at Lloyd Center. Not sure if the fire marshall showed up. Yung Jordan’s song, Welcome To Rip City, played during the event which was sponsored by Adidas, Killer Burger and The Lloyd Center itself.

The controversial game one road win should keep the Blazers’ fans in high spirits. Game 2 tomorrow! #WelcomeToRipCity

“Now she asking ‘What’s the move?’ like my name is Tre…” 

LC Jetson dropped a cool track over a slap from InfinitRakz. Video by Mac Shoop: parental advisory suggested (as always).

Cool Nutz – Crushed [VIDEO]

Cool Nutz - Premium Tunnel
  

Not gonna lie, I was skeptical when I heard Nutz will be dropping an album called EMO, but this first single - Crushed – just got me really excited. He goes in on struggle rappers in the most somber way possible. It’s awesome. Dope visuals from Mr. Limbocker complete the package.

So May 6th, huh?

LC Jetson – Chasing A Dream [Album Trailer]

ChasinADream
  

I remember when Salmon Street Studios was Momentum Studios… Melancholy memories of my rap days aside, Portland hip-hop artist LC Jetson is preparing for his upcoming album, Chasing A Dream, and shared a little insight into his process. Mac Shoop (no relation) captures some fun scenes of Jetson and talented singer Aaron O’Bryan as they work on a track.

There’s also a little 2-bar Tuesday action from AOB in there and a cameo of famed engineer Zebulon Dak’s Seahawk jersey.

Epp – Diamondback

EPP
  

Epp is really cool, raps extremely well, and invokes the best childhood memories with his song titles. His latest drop, Diamondback, is a great look as the TxE vet uses the hook to shout out many important rap folk in the region. Nice.

A must listen.

Grynch – Carry On

Grynch
  

Few invoke the essence of #OutHere like Seattle’s Grynch. The King of Ballard is a wildly popular rap vet across the region and beyond, and the big homie dropped a new video today for Carry On. Produced by Elan Wright and Neema, the song will be on Grynch’s upcoming album – Street Lights - available April 29th.

Aminé – April 18th

AmineBaby
  

Aminé turned 20 on Friday and celebrated by releasing an original track for his fans. Super late on the post from one my favorite NW artists, but happy belated to the youngin’… Next year I’ll buy you a drink!

Drake – Draft Day (Alexander Devine reDesign)

Off top, I said I didn’t really want to hear any of these rappers’ Draft Day remixes. I’m not mad at a producer swapping out the beat though, and architect Alexander Devine did just that. Cool flip.

Second Family – Everyday + Announce Grit City Tracklist

Second Family - Everyday
  

Tacoma’s Second Family released a trunk-rattling first single, Everyday, off of the upcoming 21-track album, Grit City. They also released the tracklist and some art work which leads me to assume that Rider - with a feature from popular Def Jam recording artist August Alsina – will be the next single. But let’s not get too far ahead of ourselves…

Astro King Phoenix + Ike Watson – The New Wave EP (WOHM Premiere)

THeNewWave
  

The progression is real. Astro King Phoenix teams with Ike Watson for his second “micro-EP” in the eight-part 8th Realm series, The New Wave, and the result is flat out impressive. An unexpected switch up from the prior installment, Road To Dreamsthis second installment feels a bit more cohesive while replacing a layer of his trademark artistic grit with intentional aesthetic.

WOHM is once again proud to premier Astro’s latest and greatest. Enjoy!
