Straight off a successful summer release of ‘Thank You, Mr. Tokyo’, the world’s most beloved Uber passenger continues the streak with an inevitable banger with known producer K SWISHA. Is Seattle even ready for The Private Club‘s city debut? I mean—you should’ve been with the first drop from female MC Salma Slims? Or…or what about that mad crazy-wavy slap from Noah Wood$ and MyNamePhin? Tuh…I don’t know. You have some time to get familiar but not much. We here at ReignCity are more than ready. Be like Royce Rizzy; flex up & win by copping your tickets for Sunday‘s lituation. - b.

In the midst of police brutality and systematic racism, Seattle Hip-Hop Artist and Community activist Yirim Seck has teamed up with Seattle producer QREEPZ to release his latest single “We Call It (Murder)”. The song offers a candid depiction of the injustices people of color suffer at the hands of law enforcement, and calls for systemic change. Within this framework Yirim Seck also brings focus to the children who witness such atrocities and the psychological toll it has on them.
Through this powerful single, Yirim Seck manages to capture the emotions and concerns people of color are feeling around the world. This powerful track is supported by musical production that is equally emotional as the lyrics Yirim delivers.
To capture the essence of “We Call It (Murder)”, Yirim Seck enlisted hip hop artist and music video director Notework. Together they collaborated to create a stunning visual portrait of family, community and those most effected by injustice.” - Yirim Seck

Seattle’s experimental hip-hop scene has spread like wildfire in the last few years giving us sounds like Shabazz Palaces, Sic iLL, Taylar Elizza Beth and so many others. California-bred transplant DoNormaal is and has been a very unique addition to the modern age sounds of hip-hop; giving us sweet hymns over complex beats and almost creates this synonymous feeling giving you something familiar while teaching you how to respect something new. ‘Y U Even Came’ featuring Raven Matthews is one of my favorite female MC releases to date. It just vibes with my vernacular, homie. Listen to the stream below. b.

Fresh off a successful release of his full length project ‘Tomorrow’ with Sango, Dave B releases ‘Mister Softee’ with yet another notable Seattle-based producer- Jake One. 2016 is looking nice for Dave; I mean this cat makes it feel like summer all year long. Vibes are mastered and crafted in his favor as we anticipate damn near anything new from him. If you’re lucky enough to see him live at Atlanta’s A3C, SO BE IT. If not, consider the ReignCity blessings of another Dave B headliner November 12th thanks to PCA & KEXP. Peep the chill below. - b.
Great new video from Doomtree member Sims off the new album ‘More Than Ever’ dropping 11.4. Sims will be at Barboza December 2nd! - Josh
S/o to the plug on this one! Seattle’s Malcolm Rebel and FML lyricist WebbWavvy team up for a collaborative effort in chef’in up some very unique bar placement over fire production. This tape includes a great amount of slaps just before the summer ends officially. We can’t tell whether it’s supposed to rain like sh*t or if we can still roll up something nice in the Northwest sun but this makes it easy nonetheless. Peep the EP on the Soundcloud. - b.
