    Thaddeus David Breaks Through to be #9 Freshest in the Northwest

    by  • July 8, 2013 • Freshest in the Northwest • 0 Comments

    Thaddeus DavidThaddeus David instantly was initially approved by the panel after he was named number 10 Freshest in the Northwest to open the list with a declaration that 5 Moor Gang artists would soon follow by Q Dot and would later climb to #9 passing Neema. Thaddeus has owned the stage getting active draws at his shows opening for some big names this year plus the release of the Trapitol Trill EP and a couple loose singles with a solid video game. There may have been universal love for Thaddeus, but things got difficult quickly when it was announced that Thaddeus beat two artists by only two tenths of a point who were Raz Simone and the PDX veteran Illmaculate.

    The young gunner Raz Simone is hot off a fresh year having released a solid solo EP and an EP with Sam Lachow which preceded a national tour. On the other hand, Illmaculate continues to uphold his battle rapping roots having just came back from his second Europe tour and released the Chron: Legacy EP. Based on the criteria of the past 6-8 months and a passionate speech delivered by Luvva J about paying respects to the battle MC, when D-Money proposed a vote the panel decided to keep Illmaculate alive over Raz 5-1 and to hold the fresh spitting talent for a future list. It quickly became apparent that it was a very close battle now between Thaddeus and Illmaculate as the panel was split if they should honor hip hops roots of battle rapping or expectations and commercial success. In the end, the vote was split 3-3 and it was the fans that spoke giving Thaddeus David the #10 spot! Afterwards, Thaddeus was voted past Neema unanimously to move up to the #9 slot! Did the panel make the right decision on #10? Chime in on the conversation on Twitter and Facebook with the hashtag #FreshestintheNW
