Former TRACKMEET competitor Mike Champoux dropped a new single, “The Outside,” from his forthcoming The Come Up Vol. 1. Promising young Seattle rapper or Macklemore wave-rider? You decide. Grab Mike’s previous album, LIFE, here.
“Life” is the latest track from Rockwell Powers and Ill Pill’s Kids In the Back 2. Tac-town rhymer Rockwell carries on his introspective vibe with a little help from Solzilla. Ill Pill’s production is dense and soulful — he remains one of the more under-appreciated beat makers in the Puget Sound.
