Jake One ft. Vitamin D, C-Note, Maneak B, & Ish – Home (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on May 27th, 2009 by Hyphen

Yessir!  It doesn’t get any more 206 than this one.  Big shout to everyone involved in this video, many of which are my favorite folks in this industry/community.  Great to see everyone get some shine and I’m still a little disappointed I wasn’t able to hit up the shoot too.  If I remember right though, I was coaching my 6th grade select squad to some Eastside ass-whooping, so it’s all good.  Would have been nice to get a little U-District/Ravenna repping though hahaha.  The end of this song (“peace out homey!!!”) will always be a great memory, as that soundbite was taken from one of our crazy SNSS callers when Jake was in the studio one night.  Classic.

Special props to Jake, Zia, & Pinder for doing a great job with this clip.  Townbidnassmane.

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!

Sound Session #175 (10-5-08)

Posted in Episodes, Sound Session on October 8th, 2008 by Hyphen


Apologies for the brief delay on posting up this week’s Sound Session, but best believe this was a classic night.  We were joined in studio by the big homies Jake One and Brother Ali to play Jake’s entire album, White Van Music, and talk all about it.  Well, we almost ran the entire thing.  Sorry Keak.

Since this is such an important piece of music for our hip-hop community here in Seattle, we had to celebrate.  That celebration carried on officially the next night at Jake’s release party, but this kind of kicked it off.  There were a ton of great stories told on (and off) air about how the project came together, so sit back, relax, and experience White Van Music.  Oh, and then COP IT IMMEDIATELY.

Our video expert Brian was in the studio documenting the night, so I’ll be posting up footage of the interview portions with Jake and Ali as soon as it’s ready.  Same goes for the release party the next night.  In the meantime, enjoy the SNSS audio through one of the links below:

Posted in Artists, Videos on October 3rd, 2008 by Hyphen

You should already know by now, but here’s another clip explaining why you need to cop Jake One’s White Van Music on Tuesday.  And for my Seattle people, remember that Jake will be sitting in on Sound Session this week to play the entire album and talk about every joint.  Plus, on Monday, we’ll all be at the War Room for the official release party.  Ali will also be in the building for a performance.  Don’t miss it.

Jake One ft. Elzhi – Glow (Demo Version)

Posted in Artists, Joints on September 19th, 2008 by Hyphen


With White Van Music scheduled to drop on October 7th but already circulating (in clean form) on the net, Jake has decided to post the demo version of one of the standout tracks, “Glow.”  This edition is slightly different than the final track, plus it includes a 3rd verse from Elzhi and no appearance from Royce The 5’9”.  Whichever way you slice it, this joint is classic.

Jake One ft. Elzhi – “Glow (Demo Version)”

Stay up to date with the man himself on Jake’s new blog and be sure to tune in to Sound Session on October 5th to hear more behind the scenes stories about the album.

Jake One – White Van Music (trailer)

Posted in Artists, Videos on September 16th, 2008 by Hyphen

This album is in my deck right now (yes, an official copy…you bootleggers) and it’s crazy.  Not only is this one of the best albums of the year, but it’s one of the most important and dopest albums in Seattle history.  Be sure to cop it on October 7th and tune in to Sound Session on the 5th to hear Jake in our studio breaking down the backstories behind every song.
