Fatal Lucciauno – Blame Fatal

Seattle legend Fatal Lucciauno dropped a dark gem last week; nothing to step to, this one’s for the bad guys.  Fatal stepped in last minute and killed it in May at The THESIS in Seattle performing this very song, so I had to take the time and post the full track. And I have it on

Mic Capes – FRNZY (prod. by Drae Slapz)

Mic Capes knows the value of a solid album, but that doesn’t mean he won’t let the loosies fly. With Drae Slapz on the cybal- heavy beat, FRNZY features an inspired Mic on offense with no clear target – and no hook – for almost 3 minutes. Album fodder or not, the high energy single

ThatKidCry: Surfer Jack and Finding a Positive Escape

Addiction is the worst. It leaves us reaching for help in the very thing that is destroying us. We all know people dealing with it and the majority of us battle our own demons every day. Last week ThatKidCry sent me his new video. His song Surfer Jack is a tribute to this familiar destruction

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

In case you hadn’t heard, Danielseventwo will be making his debut appearance at the next installment of TheTHESIS in July, and we’re pretty stoked about it.  A 21 year old rapper with a slow flow and potent bars, Daniel recently linked with his old buddy Fyra (FKA WhoIsColson) and dropped a little slaplet for our listening

Yung Mil – God Bless [VIDEO]

Fresh off the heels of his decidedly impressive remix of Drake’s Portland, the city’s youngest rap veteran, Yung Mil, and his self-owned video production company Aeon Visual dropped a video gem for his latest single, God Bless. With thick religious themes and striking cinematography, it’s truly a joy to watch; and the song – produced by J.Ross & Simms

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
