    by  • August 11, 2015 • 0 Comments

    This year’s #4 Freshest in the Northwest, Myke Bogan, called-in to the show and we asked him about what it was like touring with King Chip, what it was like when making “The Anthem” music video with Tre Redeau, how he landed that Stussy sponsorship, and what’s so special about his fans. And he...

    By far, Nacho Picasso is the most consistent emcee in the Northwest and nails the criteria down every year with quality music, incredible crowd turnout, invigorating social media interaction, and the respect he holds as King of the Moors. The Dark Sith of Seattle had another big year returning to that Blue Sky Black...

    mykebogan

    For two years running our #1 fan voted artist for Freshest in the Northwest has been Portland’s Myke Bogan and we finally took a serious look at Myke and came away astounded. You could argue he stays under the radar not getting the same major looks his fellow top 5 brethren such as #5...

    The Freshest in the Northwest panel has never been more split than this #5 decision! Choice, formerly known as Royce The Choice, has burst onto the national scene in the past 6-8 months behind the co-sign that is DJ Mustard. After moving from Seattle to L.A., Choice became Mustard’s first signed rapper to his...

    Last year’s #5 Freshest in the Northwest artist, Tope, had an even bigger year this time, yet finds himself one slot lower at #6. The Portland emcee released Broke Boy Syndrome in December with an enormous blog response on all the major sites with a shout out by Erykah Badu over one of his samples...

    sol

    It doesn’t get any more cut and dry than this. Sol makes his 4th appearance on the Freshest in the Northwest list out of 4 years of us doing this at #7 for continuing to grow his already crazy buzz on the net and off it while touring the Southwest with Zion I, The Grouch, and...

    Fresh Juice 2014

    Good times with the Tacoma Boys Josh Rizeberg and Awall 2 Piece as Almond Roca. Their self-titled album, which is technically all one track, features many of the Build and Destroy members that also are working on Whitney Brady’s Tacoma City Council District 3 campaign. Things stay political with our Public Enemy review of their newest...

    Meek_Mill_All_Eyes_On_You_Cover

    Meek Mill may have dropped the ball on his diss to Drake, but his Dreams Worth More Than Money album cut “All Eyes On You” featuring his girl Nicki Minaj and Chris Brown is worth multiple listens. #8 Freshest in the Northwest rapper Dave B dropped another fresh single “Do You” produced by our...

    Last year’s biggest exclusion, Dave B, upped his game in all areas in 2015 earning him a solid #8 spot on the Freshest in the Northwest list. Always being a low-key guy, he surprised the interwebs with a 2-track EP Loosies in January and then treated us with a loose single about once a...

    The Moor Gang’s arguably hardest lyricist, Jarv Dee, makes his Freshest in the Northwest debut entering the list at #9. After dropping his debut album in 2012, Dopamine, which is considered by many to be a NW classic, he’s languished from the public eye showing up for the occasional performance yet still riding a...
