Featuring guest appearances by beastly Seattle MCs Language Arts (“Back Track”) and Macklemore (“Good”) as well as one of the year’s most buzzed about local duos, the fresh-as-all-hell females of Thee Satisfaction (“Radio Head”), High Society dims the lights on the laidback aesthetic established in Future Talk and invites the listener to get real grown—and enjoy it. While this EP may feel like a main course, don’t get it twisted: it’s merely just a taste of what’s to come, a prelude to an additional as-yet-untitled release slated for later in the summer.

Check out a very special edition of "Culture VI CRIBS" with 88-Keys. He shows us around his Harlem Penthouse!
Okay, so his Super actually let us use an empty penthouse in his building, so we decided to do a mock version of Cribs. You GOTTA see this - Keys is a funny dude!
He also talks about his friendship with Kanye West, and makes a HUGE announcement about Kanye (EXCLUSIVE!!), and even spits an old Kanye never-before-heard verse!
Death of Adam in stores now!

Was riding in the whip bumping Jay Stay Paid and came cross track 18 titled "Glamour SHo75 (09)"...needless to say it was over for me. I had most of my verse done by the time I got home.. *I DO NOT ENCOURAGE WRITING/DRIVING but I consider myself a victim because this beat is a mmmmooonnnster. Parker and TH "Straight Up." Shout out to Dilla without whom I wouldn't be making music....or at least hip-hop. It's all for the love. Straight up.

Wicked, wonderful stuff from Choklate -- a record that we dig even more than the singer's great debut a few years before! If you're digging for underground soul, this set's definitely one to dig -- as it's one of that rare breed of record that grabs you from the start, and makes your smile grow wide with the satisfaction of unearthing an undiscovered funky nugget! The beats are crisp, but always understated -- and there's a nice electric crackle alongside the keys -- never too much, just a touch of cosmic energy that makes the whole thing sparkle wonderfully -- setting a wonderful scene for Choklate's vocals as they slide in smoothly to the mix.

(Part 2 of 2) Save Our Sonics and KJR 950AM put on a tribute concert for the departed Seattle SuperSonics in Jan. 2009, eight months after the team played its last game in Seattle. This video features appearances by the Sonics Dance Team, Sonics legend Slick Watts, former Sonics center Zaid Abdul-Aziz, SOS founder Brian Robinson and performances by Wizdom, Spaceman and Grynch. After 41 years of loyal support from Seattle fans, Clay Bennett and David Stern moved Seattle's team to Oklahoma in 2008, leaving a huge hole in the heart of the Emerald City. Intro/Outro music by Neema.
Grynch, being the King of Ballard that he is, has blessed us peasants by giving me permission to leak an exclusive track off the EP. “Smoke & Mirrors” featuring Tunji & Geologic is a mellow thought provoker produced by Scenik, who is featured elsewhere on the EP.
You've been hearin the buzz for this unique project from GMK and it finally drops today. Tracks 2-5 have more than just one song, but you're best to just cop the whole album!
