VIDEO: “Steve Jobz” – Benadrill & Lake House Ent.

Tip of the hat to Lake House Entertainment‘s RoofDogg who passed along the crew’s latest video, “Steve Jobz”, a tribute to the man of the song’s title and a lament over the loss of the LHE’s famed Lake Washington home — damn you, reverse mortages! Here’s hoping the idiosyncratic collective finds some new digs soon.


VIDEO: “Light Skin” – Benadrill

Thanks to Luke and the rest of the Lakehouse Entertainment team for linking me to Benadrill‘s new video for “Light Skin”, a track off the MC’s The Burna Supremacy (stream below) which dropped back in June. I’m not always feeling what this crew puts out, but I do appreciate the fact they do the damn thing with no false pretenses.

Click album cover to D/L.

Local producer Keyboard Kid is making a name for himself in the based/cloud-rap underground, contributing key tracks to artists like Lil B and Mondre MAN (of Main Attrakionz). This in addition to recent compositions for local collective Lake House Ent (see: Young Dollas’ “Navy Based” video, below.)

The Kid’s Video Games and Blunts Vol. 1 is old by rap standards (it came out in May of last year), but this overworked blogger is just getting to it now. True to its name, the album is flush with 8-bit synth and hypnotic glitch hop. At a walloping 34-tracks long (most of which extend for an entire song’s length), enduring this thing is a bit of a listening marathon, but if you’re late to the producer’s game like I am it’s a good way to get filled in.

The LP is available for free download, here.  And his subsequent drop, The Mind Is So Complex When Your #Based, is available for purchase, here.

Northwest good life is lounging at a house on Lake Washington, skating and making hip-hop music. The Lake House Entertainment team knows what it is. Their Dollas & Some Change compilation album dropped yesterday. Get it, here.
