HV Gutter- Blaze Jays 2

Hv Gutter is always working and staying moving. If he’s not writing, he’s keeping busy producing. “Blaze Jays 2″ is a testament to that fact. The 19 track tape is his 19th project recorded to date. Many of the beats will sound a bit familiar, as they are remixes to popular joints that have dropped

Cool Nutz – What You Think I’m On ft. Illmaculate & Mistah Fab

Veteran rapper Cool Nutz came through with a slap last week, a good sign for his upcoming EP, Terrance, which is slated for a late September release and features Nipsey Hussle, Bosko, Drae Steves, and more.

Myke Bogan – Gravy ft. Michael Christmas

Myke Bogan has been active lately in preparation for his new album, Pool Party, and the release of Gravy (which features Boston’s Michael Christmas) is his latest lure. The bouncy track, produced by Pool Balls creator Tim Fontane, is a certified headknock and Myke does his thing, sliding syllables where you didn’t think they belonged.

Blossom & Hot16 – Tease [EP]

Portland’s favorite young soul singer, Blossom linked up with Liquid Beat producer Hot16 to drop an unarguably popular EP, titled Tease, that showcases the talented underground artist’s sound and energy.  Blossom is no stranger to solid production, but the bounce on these boom-bap inspired beats adds a layer to her ever-vibey sound. Her sultry voice, addictive

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

China Marie ft. Ray J & Jamari – Policy [VIDEO]

Portland native China Marie has been making some crazy moves down in LA, most recently linking up with LA bad boy Ray J and rapper Jamari for her latest video single, Policy. The upbeat yet light and vibey track floats out of the speakers, and is certainly enjoyable enough. The video takes it to another level
