Woah, this video goes hard.  Bambu links up with Geo and MTK for this joint off his upcoming project, …paper cuts…, dropping soon.  Seattle folks will get a chance to see Bam perform here later this month when the Blue Scholars lock down the Showbox for back to back shows:

Macklemore – The Town (video)

Posted in Artists, Music Videos on December 23rd, 2009 by Hyphen

The long awaited video for Macklemore’s ode to Seattle and our hip-hop community is finally here, and as expected, Mack and director Zia Mohajerjasbi knocked it out the park.  Shout to everyone involved in the song, video, and our scene.  It was an honor to make a quick cameo in a clip that’s sure to be a town classic and I hope y’all enjoy it as much as I do.

But my-my-my-my city’s filthy”

Macklemore & Ryan Lewis – The Vs. EP

Posted in Artists, Mixtapes on December 15th, 2009 by Hyphen

The homies Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are not only two of my favorite artists from the town, but they are also two of my favorite people in the Seattle music scene.  They’re just really cool dudes who love making art and take it pride in everything they do.  When you mix in their incredible talent on top of that (need proof?), it’s mandatory to check for everything they’re involved in.

Here’s their long awaited collaboration, The Vs. EP, where they sampled some contemporary bands and combined rock with hip-hop.  Don’t get it twisted though, this isn’t some half-assed, corny mash up project.  Instead, it’s an excellent piece of work where Ryan’s lush soundscapes are complimented perfectly by Mack’s heartfelt and sobering (quite literally) rhymes.  I can’t recommend this highly enough.
