NEW MUSIC: “Everyday” – Second Family

Second Family - Everyday

We here at 206UP do our best to also stay up on the rap happenings in the South Puget Sound. Tacoma’s Second Family have been one of the blog’s favorite crews for a minute from that region. “Everyday” is the first drop from the duo’s upcoming Grit City which is scheduled for a June release.

Tacoma’s Second Family is street rap exemplified. One of the best representatives of that sound the Pacific Northwest has to offer. The crew has two new projects coming up, Excellence of Execution and Grit City. “Brim Low” is the first preview from those efforts.

#LatePass. This dropped on July 6, but your dude is on vacation right now so I’m automating this post for July 19. Gotta spread the material thin to keep you fools interested. You ADD-havin’, attention span-lackin’, download freak flag flyin’ ma’f-ckas! (Just kidding, I love my readers!)

Gateway Drug is the latest drop from the South Sound crew Second Family. MC’s Element and NoQuezt keep it gully, grimy, gritty, and all other g-based euphemisms for “gangsta.”

The South Sound has been buzzing about this mixtape since May so #LatePass on this one. Second Family is the Tac-Town duo of Element and NoQuezt. Their deliveries exist at opposite ends of the spectrum. Element brings a gruff hardrock flow (something like a Pacific Northwest version of Bun B) and NoQuezt has a raspy, high-pitched smoker’s intonation. Streets are the subject matter, typical to a lot of 253 sh-t these days, but what sets the men of Second Family apart are their MC skills, which are far and away better than most of their peers.

“Can’t See ‘Em” is a recent drop from Logics‘ forthcoming project, Vintage Flow (hitting pavement June 6th). Classic Cali sound right here. I didn’t know Logics had beef with The Pack, so that’s noteworthy. Element on the hook, Tryfe on the beat. Bump this in the summertime.

(Shout-out to Mitch at Northwest State Of Mind, where I caught this.)
