Weeb – House of Cheeks Party Recap

Portland rapper Weeb has been on the move lately, and his new video for House of Cheeks serves as evidence.

The Thesis: Stewart Villain, Bravo Domo, Epp

Putting up three rappers and a special guest is fun and all but I want to be honest, I get tired of the template sometimes, and I know you do too. So here in May, for the monthly first Thursday hip-hop extravaganza we call TheTHESIS, we’ll be switching it up and doing something a little

Lang X Mic Capes – DOA II (Mixed By Drae Slapz)

A couple of weeks ago at Mic Check, Mic Capes (no relation) crashed the Rare Vibe set debuting a new slap with Lang that quickly won over the crowd. Already somewhat of an officially unofficial member of Portland’s rarest crew, Mic deepens his ties to the upstart rap crew with this bar-riddled vibe.  With a

abstrct – Progress EP

It’s safe to say, Adrian ‘abstrct’ Anaya is a diamond in the rough that Portland has yet to find. The Portland native has taken time out to re-establish his sound since his debut release, Patience, in 2014. This year he brings us a 5 track EP. Anaya mentioned that he took a hiatus after the

Brookfield Duece Addresses The Unwilling

I think it’s safe to say that I don’t have to explain who Brookfield Duece is, or what he does for the Portland music scene. In the City of Bridges, Duece brought his talents all the way from Brookfield to share his life story through music. I last saw Duece after performing at The Thesis:

I’d been hearing about these Dead Phone Dummiez, but after doing a little research, I’m seeing some major potential. The PDX/Vancouver camp is ripe with talent and creativity, and I’m excited to announce that they’ll be bringing their high-intensity set to February’s edition of TheTHESIS, joining Bocha and Foday for a show full of deep
