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!

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.

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!
