Blue Scholars – Coffee and Snow (video)

Posted in Artists, Joints, Music Videos on January 7th, 2009 by Hyphen

(I recommend watching in high quality here)

While some of us were making completely pointless videos during the Seattle snow, the homies Geo and Sabzi were killing time making a better song and video than most artists do with huge budgets.  Seriously, are you kidding me?  About 95% of the artists out there wish they could make something this ill.  The clip was directed by Saba’s brother, Zia, who continues to churn out some of the coolest visuals I’ve seen recently.  Very dope.

Jake One wins Sound Magazine artist of the year

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews on December 17th, 2008 by Hyphen

(Watch in HD right here)

Yeah, I already posted up that interview we did with the big homey Jacob Wizzle, but since he was recently awarded “artist of the year” by Seattle’s Sound Magazine, I thought I’d post that up again if you missed it.  You can read more about that interview right here.

Also, be sure to head on over to Sound Mag’s site to read their ‘best of’ piece on Jake and some other great Seattle talent, though pretty much all non-hip-hop…[Jerry] not that there’s anything wrong with that [/Seinfeld].  Oh, and lots of quotes from yours truly were used in Jake’s piece.  Read all about it on page 66 in the digital edition.

Big shout to Katelyn for helping Jake get the town love he so rightly deserves.  Cop that White Van Music if you haven’t already!

Blue Scholars on Grounded TV

Posted in Artists, Other Peoples' Interviews, Videos on November 6th, 2008 by Hyphen

I guess we should probably get back to some hip-hop related content, huh?  Well, Obama is definitely hip-hop, but yeah…here’s a new interview with the homies Geo and Sabzi, collectively known as Blue Scholars.  Peep some words from two of Seattle’s dopest.  TBM.

Red Bull Big Tune 2008 – Seattle

Posted in Artists, Live Performances, Videos on October 22nd, 2008 by Hyphen

I’m glad this video is dope, because otherwise I’d almost feel contractually obligated to post it.  Let’s see…

  • It features a ton of my good friends.
  • It bigs up the 206.
  • The Red Bull Big Tune was created by the other half of Sound Session, J. Moore, along with the homies Jake One, Vitamin D, and Marcus.
  • I was in the building.
  • It’s a great event.
  • Budo is hilarious.

I could go on, but the video is pretty self explanatory.  Congrats to Brainstorm and Rising Son for advancing to the finals in NYC.  Let’s hope we get back to back Seattle champions…
