Gotta support the boys at ALL NATRO!  If you want a break from all the Hip-Hop going on this month, come out and chill to the righteous vibes of ALL NATRO!

Hosana & Maleko

Been waiting for Hosana album!  I also heard about this vid too. Well produced and a hype track.  Good to see the homies killing it.  Hosana will be back in town for the Siq 2year anniversary!  Huge up!

Your Boy Maleko, drops a little knowledge on his come up.  A lot of the people mentioned in his bio has also help myself and the LS.  Really good history lesson on West coast underground.

Beatroot Aftermath + Sentric.

Ultra props to all who came thru and supported. Good things came out of a stressful situation. 1-we got super good sound lock down for next time, try guess. 2-Beatroot June is on lock, sign up now. 3-we actually made money to pay out $200 to 1st and $100 to second.  Got a recap later…but Sentric wanted to send his love and submit his remix of Chi-towns “Devils Sweet”.  Sen and Heardrums out of Seattle have been rocking shows recently and have been creating a buzz up NW.  Yall gotta hear the live set, killah!
