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.

“A lot of people don’t understand all the work and sacrifices it takes to move how I move, yet they still want to speak. Trapanese is a language attached to a way of life so I’m saying if you’re not living anywhere near the way I’m living then you don’t speak my lingo and you definitely can’t understand me. I don’t want to understand you, so don’t talk to me. My real ones will understand and appreciate this shit.”-Raz Simone
