Just wanted to take a second to show some support to everyone who’s been riding with WOHM rain or shine, we see you and we appreciate you! Thing’s have been going well but they could always be better. Having said that, I am now officially back from my blogging hiatus in hopes to cover as much music as possible. Portland has been brewing some amazing music within the last few months so I’m here to make up for lost time.
First things first, there isn’t a better place to start than with Portland emcee Epp. The rose city native first got his start being apart a very successful rap trio TxE which consisted of producer Calvin Valentine, rapper Tope, and yes you guessed it Epp. The group concluded about 2 years ago but since then all 3 members have been making waves in their own unique way. After being on a little bit of musical hiatus himself, Epp was recently signed to new Portland record label Eyrst which is collective of some of the best artists Portland has to offer. Gaining his momentum back from performing at many shows such as this year’s SXSW and constantly being in the studio, it’s safe to say that the talented and creative rhyme sayer is back and this time he isn’t wasting any time.
Teaming up with the heavy hitting-bass slapping producers over at ReignState, Epp releases his first single off of his upcoming project “There’s A Place For People Like You”. This electric track is reflection on the gruesome police brutality that has been happening in our society for far too long. If you have attended our monthly event The Thesis at Kelly’s Olympian, then you know this has become our unofficial theme song.
Check it out for yourself below and be on the look out for more music from Epp, I promise you wont be dissapointed.
