Cooper Glass decided to make his WOHM debut as he packs his bags and heads overseas to Thailand. The newly established Portland artist has taken some time to step back and observe the scene while he re-establishes himself as a brand. The lyrical loud mouth rapper lays out his rhythmic flow on his newest single, Showtime.

Glass shows his versatility by fading between bouncing lyrics to subtle singing. His wordplay coincides with Portland artist Nick B with a line that pulls directly from Nick’s hit single “Moves”.

The Rare Vibe spokesman, Nick B, takes the helm on the second half of the turn up, delivering chop after chop with those catchy ad-libs we all know and love. I can hear this single playing inside a packed out venue, you will too. He speaks truth in verse as well, saying “I been doing this for about ten months and I got buzz in the town”. I’m already looking forward to what the next ten months has in store for both of these artists.

This single released at the perfect time. Most of Portland’s biggest brands are performing and showcasing their art at the Moda Center tomorrow for a collaborative event called Culture Shock. The Portland Trail Blazers have endorsed this event, proving that Portland continues to keep a symbiotic support system intact.

Sit back, roll up and roll out the red carpet. It’s showtime.
