New Music: Terrance Brown - “Not California”

Swamp Life

That’s that fire, boi! Terrance Brown (FKA Wolfbaybe) delivers ‘Not California’, the first drop under his new alias. Terrance combines his saucy Louisiana influence with some lesser-gritty bars that seam up like some A.P.C slims. The West-Coast influence shines bright on the BIV produced track & we’re mighty thankful. This cat is finding his way around these slick Seattle streets. Peep down below. - b.

New EP: Crow - “Crow’s Nest”


The new modern wave of trap has arrived in Seattle. Among the likes of Thraxxhouse’s Mackned, Crow gives me those chilly, intoxicating vibes that is almost new to Seattle and it’s contingent music scene. The six-track EP features classic Anvil produced joints with special appearances by Teezy and a rare BB Sun wave. We’ve been seeing these releases more often from Crow, also 1/2 of RUDE with Mogli- so the project is right on time. Stream the drop below. - b.

New Video: YUNG MIL - “Long Run”


New Video from Portland Emcee/Vocalist Yung Mil who got that co-sign from Russell Simmons & Kevin Liles. - Josh

New Music: Fatal Lucciauno - “Speaking In Tongues”

Fatal Lucciauno

A lot of time, my words fall on deaf ears. It’s very difficult to express my pain responsibly and in a way that MY ppl can digest. I like to make things a tad bit challenging for listeners to grasp instead of making police reports via rap music. A recipe of black anger, decoding of biblical secrets, hidden riddles, and hood tales cloaked in mysticism yet made for mass consumption. Speaking in tongues is a look into my personal maze of emotions and convictions. I hope you enjoy. - Fatal Lucciauno

Masta Killa

Some new Wu shit to finish out the week is sweet music to my ears. - Josh

New Music: Key Nyata - “Solo Boy” (prod. Key Nyata)

Key Nyata

Key Nyata  is known for worldwide bangers across these platforms - working with collective ‘Thraxxhouse’ on many projects, completing fire joints for Vince Staples and more; we are never shy to a new ‘17 Key addition. We were gifted Dad Of The Year, a nice release for Key back in November. Peep Solo Boy, a self- produced slap that seems to please Key’s spooky-confident aesthetic just fine but wait- don’t forget to peep the newest #7Slaps w/ Carrick Wenke. IMPORTANT. You can stream this right here. b

#ICYMI: New Video: “7 Slaps In The Sack”  Episode 29: Shawn Parker

Shawn Parker

Tacoma’s own Shawn Parker blesses the #7Slaps w/ Carrick Wenke stage, bringing the cool in his edition of Wenke’s special interview series. “What’s it like being one of the youngest to do it so huge in your city?” a question I’m not shy to ask Parker. He’s made huge moves for 2016 making us anticipate his year to come. With more recent and respected inspirations like Lil Wayne’s ‘Rebirth’ and Gucci Mane’s 2016 release of ‘Everybody’s Looking’, it’s not uncommon even for The Game’s 2006 release of Doctor’s Advocate to be part of Parker’s gritty approach. Nonetheless, he released Before The Storm  right before the new year just so we can let it marinate. Stream the jump below and stay woke to catch the next #7Slaps. - b.
