Seattle rap group State Of The Artist is comprised of three MC’s from the West, North, and South ends of the city—and are garnering a significant buzz as the 2010 summer season begins. The group’s strong array of production and memorable approach to lyricism has helped define the new age direction Hip-Hop is taking this year—and it will continue to set them apart from others as they continue to progress.
Always thinking forward when it comes to their music, as well as fashion and presentation the trio of Parker, Hyphen8d and TH are emerging as another mainstay in the ever-evolving Seattle Hip-Hop community. In the past 2 years, SOTA has performed in a handful of major cities and shared stages with Gym Class Heroes, Goodie Mob, Snoop Dogg, Wiz Khalifa, Fashawn, Mickey Factz, and a majority of Seattle’s hottest acts as well. After 5 mixtapes, the Hank Moody EP, and trips to LA and New York, the group recently released their debut album ‘SeattleCaliFragilisticExtraHellaDopeness,’ and are planning a fall tour.
Less than one month after its release, the LP has since charted as high as #1 local album in stores such as Easy Street Records, gone into “heavy rotation” at 90.3 KEXP, received airplay from Kube 93, as well as college stations nationwide.
