Moor Gang/Cloud Nice affiliate Steezie Nasa dropped a brand new seven-piece three days ago. The usual Moor suspects have their fingerprints all over this one: MackNed, Rob Skeetz, et al. And Caz Greez lends bars to one track, thereby closing the circle on two of the Town’s best rap collectives.
The latest collab from Moor Gang member Steezie Nasa and Harry Clean of Detooz Films concerns some less-than-reputable behavior. Dig it. (D Valley is the guest and Raised By Wolves the pad jockey.)
This short film, inspired by and featuring instrumentals from Sax G‘s Tu Me Manques, was conceived and directed by Roger Habon (aka 10.4 Rog). Per the Cloud Nice blog:
The story is told without words, the actors using only body language to convey powerful emotions. Takiyah Ward’s bold choreography contrasts delightfully with Sax G’s subtle expressions, invoking all-too-familiar feelings of love and distance.
Tay Sean and P Smoov are trading remixes of their crew’s respective tracks this week. This exhibit right here is a remix of “Benihana” off Fresh Espresso’s latest album, Bossalona. Check the last remix from P a few posts back and stay tuned for a brand new Fresh Espresso EP coming in a few hours.
Kingdom Crumbs (Cloud Nice’s Tay Sean, Jarv Dee, Mikey Nice, and Jerm) are creators of the best Seattle rap album of 2012, at least in this blogger’s humble opinion. Make sure to download the crew’s swagged-out, heady self-titled debut, here.
New today is this remix of Kingdom’s “The Mezzanine,” treated with due respect by one half of Fresh Espresso, P Smoov. The two groups will be performing at the same City Arts Fest show at Neumos on 10/19. Go here to check the science.
The now week-old Kingdom Crumbs debut album will likely remain fresh in listener’s ears for the remainder of the uno dos. Cloud Nice alums Tay Sean, Jerm, Mikey Nice, and Jarv Dee cast pristine drops of sound on the local rap scene in both the fashion to which you are already accustomed, and in brand new ways entirely. It’s worth the time and hard drive space.
