Mic Capes ft. Aaron O’Bryan Smith & Lauren Steele – Black Pearls [VIDEO]

Mic Capes really did the thing with his video for Black Pearls, holding off for nearly a year to drop the melanin-inspired video during Black History Month.

Complete with a powerful opening poem from Jefferson High graduate Lauren Steele (who is not the model at the beginning of the video) and cameos from dozens of women from the Portland area, Mic and A.O.B. truly let Black women take center stage as they appreciate their natural power and beauty.

A growing legend in his own right, Mic has long been known for his lyricism and ability to touch on urban themes from a conscious perspective. For more work from one of the city’s brightest, check out Concrete Dreams on your favorite streaming service.

Epp- Sammich (Sxlxmxn Remix)

The artist formerly known as Stewart Villain is one of my favorite producers in town. Sxlxmxn not only makes insane beats, but many different types, styles, and niches of them. This time around he decided to Remix his fellow EYRST artist Epp’s banger “Sammich“. This song is gritty and guttural at first with heavy drops and baselines, then eases into something a little more mellow, making for a seamless transition before changing up one last time to end the jam. Make sure to hit up “The Thesis” tomorrow night where Sxlxmxn will be performing a beat set, among other great artists from the Pacific Northwest. Peep.

Tre Redeau- Clientele

 

Tre Redeau is back with another single to vibe to on this rainy, gloomy afternoon in Portland. This time the track is a bass heavy, fast paced banger that inspires shipping packs. With “Clientele“, Tre taps into his talented array of flows and drops something truly worth playing extremely loud no matter where you happen to be. Be on the lookout for much more in the future from the promising “Soar Losers” emcee. Press Play.

Also if you haven’t checked out his latest video for his couple month old single “Beef Plates“, you can do so HERE.

Stevo The Weirdo – Whateva [Official Music Video]

One of my favorite Portland rappers, Stevo The Weirdo, dropped a chill single with a dope video earlier this month in Whateva.

A couple amigos (what’s up, Garry!) some free PBR and Black Mannequin gear are all Stevo needs for a fun afternoon on the town. While doing the most is commonplace in rap vids these days, the ATL-bred PDX rapper reminds us that it’s not what you have, but what you do with it.

Peep the video below, and then head over to Spotify and help the homie rack up the plays. #OutHere

Al-One Releases “Back 2 The Northwest” On Stand Alone Records

Just six months after dropping his 2017 album, Sharptongue, Sandpeople alum Al-One is back with another full-length album with Back 2 The Northwest. While the crafty NW vet’s discography dates back to the late 90s, B2TNW is the flagship project for his new record label, Stand Alone Records, and what an entrance it is.

The unique album screams “Sandpeople” while keeping with the dancy and upbeat musicality Al-One has always been known for. An eclectic cast of vocal features add energy to the decidedly lyrical project, and I couldn’t help but smile to see names like Brown Caeser, 9DM and TOPE grace the credits. Spreading the love around, B2TNW also features fresh verses from Madito, Phades, Big Saages, Uncle Suel, KP and Killer Reece, plus vocal support from Joya Marie and Lovely.

Be on the lookout for a Back 2 The Northwest release party at Mississippi Studios in the near future, and peep the appearance on DJ Klyph’s Welcome To The Neighborhood if you haven’t already. WOHM is proud to premier the first project from Al-One’s label Stand Alone Records, and encourage you to check it out on Spotify. The project will soon be available on 12” vinyl as well. #OutHere

Bocha – Bounce

Today we’re proud to announce the latest WOHM Exclusive video, “Bounce“! The previously released,  Chevy C produced track is full of charisma and energy, much like Bocha himself. If you have ever had the pleasure to see this man rock a crowd then you have seen those qualities first and forefront for yourself. The Riley Brown shot video also reflects these attributes as Bocha jumps around shooting inflatable hoops and tackling eight foot tall blow up gorillas. This video drops as a promotion ahead of his next project “M.A.A.N.” (Maturing As A Nigga). The EP will be entirely produced by “Sxlxmxn” (previously known as Stewart Villain). Press play.

Webb Wavvy – Apply The Pressure [EP]

Webb Wavvy is a rap name I’ve heard thrown around for a while, and after a couple of spins through his latest tape, Apply The Pressure, I can say he’s well deserving of the attention.

When he’s not gracing the cover of weed mags alongside Seattle cool kids Gifted Gab and Kung Foo Grip, you can find the Fine Malt Lyrics rapper rocking shows and barring out. ATP started a little slow to me but picked up in a big way, providing the type of gritty raps that I can get down to on my birthday weekend. The trap rapper bars out – especially on the uptempoOG – and that’s not something you always expect with this brand of hip-hop.

Definitely worth a few spins, check out the latest from Webb Wavvy. We’ll be keeping our ears peeled for future drops. #OutHere

Paris Alexa – Bloom [ALBUM]

Singer/looper/producer Paris Alexa dropped her highly anticipated new project, Bloom, this morning, and it’s everything we wanted. 

The 7-track R&B/Soul experience is solid from top to bottom, putting the 19 year old Seattle songstress’ skills on full display. Acoustic and upbeat production pairs wonderfully with Paris’ powerful voice, lending to a sensual and intimate listen. 

Deadhead is my personal favorite, but the story-telling throughout the project is impeccable. Definitely something you should not miss.

S. Loyal – Trapping Is A Hobby ft. Trap Kitchen LA (Prod. by 6ix) [VIDEO]

Portland rapper S. Loyal hops off tour and makes his WOHM debut with a clean new video with cameos from Spank of Trap Kitchen, as well as FLIBOIMOE and Mikey Vegaz. Slangin’ out the food truck is the theme as Loyal does his thing over a tough beat from 6ix

Buzzing locally with their new Portland location, Loyal makes a smart bet attaching his brand to the Trap Kitchen which has already garnered attention from celebrities across the spectrum. The high-energy anthem stands on its own two though. Peep game and give it a spin.
