Originally hailing from North Portland, Ki$ is no stranger to the 503. He moved to Dallas at an early age where he developed his infatuation for double cup music and the southern sound.

Burn Money Music Presents: Bridge City Cypher #3

RC Spitta, Kid Indigo and the rest of the Burn Money Music camp light it up (both literally and figuratively) in this premeditated cypher vid. I’ll admit, I’m not too familiar with the squad, but I like what I hear and their studio space looks pretty awesome.  Don’t be swayed by the nonchalant opening bars, these

Sadistik – God Complex [VIDEO]

Seattle rapper Sadistik dropped Alters back in April and his second single from the new project is wild. Impressive lyricism meets the ever-so-clean camera of Tim Slew for blasphemously gorgeous results. Safe to say Sadistik just keeps getting better.   The video premiered on niche site Beautiful Bizarre, and if you like the song the related interview is certainly

The Bad Tenants – Altitude Check

Seattle best (and only?) blues/rap band is at it again, with an upbeat new single in Altitude Check. The soulful hook-driven jam makes great use of the Tenant’s signature horns over production by Rudy Wilmington and the seemingly ever-present IG88. But don’t let the band vibe fool you, this song is explicit and the guys
