Westcoast and Eastcoast has always had dope Hip Hop artists. And I always felt that the NorthWest has been slept on. Living in Washington, I’ve heard of many artist all around the state. I put a few Seattle based artist/groups/duos/producers together to share the music. Some are better than others, but they’re all good in their way. I may be missing a few.. but these are all artists that I’ve been listening to for over a couple months, to a couple years.
I tried to put them in alphabetical order. Bolded are the ones I listen to the most, Italic are producers and the rest are other artist, you may have heard from RhymeSayers or may have never heard of.. either way.. ENJOY:
Abyssinian Creole Blue Scholars Boom Bap Project Common Market Dyme Def Fresh Espresso Gabriel Teodros Grayskul Grieves Grynch Jake One KnowMads Macklemore Shabazz Palaces (Ish from DIGABLE PLANETS is in this duo) Silent Lambs Project The Saturday Knights The Physics Vitamin D
Jake One has had many successful colaberations. My favrorite song he’s ever done though is this remix. The orignal was already really great, but Jake One turned it into something truly amazing. I’ve played this at a lot of the parties I’ve hosted. If all of your friends are MF DOOM fans it’s an extremely effective song to set the mood. The original version of Hoe Cakes is off of MF DOOM’s outstanding album MM.. Food, and this remix is off of the corresponding remix album MM.. Leftovers.
On the strength of Freeway’s two tracks on Jake Uno’s most excellent White Van Music and Free’s series of bombs on bloggers in 2009 comes the official dough infusion hip-hop seemingly always needs, The Stimulus Package.
I happened across Pitchfork this week and saw that they gave this album 6.5, which means two things, really:
1) They still don’t get hip-hop.
2) Correctly adjusted, this is album actually gets at least an 8.5.
This isn’t about P4k though. This is about a great emcee and a great producer hooking up for the real deal. Freeway’s always engaging flow does wonders on top of Jake One’s soul-crushing grooves. And it shines in part because of that “group”-style consistency that’s so often missing from modern day hip-hop albums.
Dog...you need to hop off that macklemore tip. He sucks
Haha, I don’t understand people like you. I’ve been a fan of his since 2009, and he’s been a legend in Seattle for years, which has an incredible hip-hop scene. Grieves, Jake One, Dyme Def, Blue Scholars, Grynch, Sol, and Nacho Picasso just to name a few, and he’s been more famous than them for longer than just this year. Just because his album The Heist is his best album and a truly amazing piece of work doesn’t mean he’s all hype. He’s been in the game for over a decade. He’s more than earned his current success.
Not gonna lie, I haven’t been this excited over a new track in a while. Dave B teams up with Sol & producer Jake One on this killer track. We’re hoping this means that a new album is coming sometime soon. Until that happens you can check out the track here.
