D.Black - Special f/ Fatal Lucciauno MP3


via 206Proof

Following the release of his well-received Sportn' Life/MYX Music Label debut Ali'Yah, Seattle-based MC D.Black is showing no signs of slowing down in 2010. Teaming up with fellow Emerald City native and frequent collaborator B.Brown, D.Black is gearing up to release a brand new (and free!) EP entitled Black and Brown – D.Black will be handling all the vocals, while producer B.Brown provides the beats. In anticipation of the release, D.Black is leaking the first song from the forthcoming EP for public consumption. "Special" is about taking a stand against the destructive ways that most people live their lives. "We got a generation dying over wealth, but we constantly chasing our self," raps D.Black. It showcases the lyrical skills and sophistication you have come to expect from D.Black, smooth production by B.Brown, and features a guest spot from fellow Sportn' Life Records label mate MC Fatal Lucciauno. The trio prove that, just in case you weren't sure, Sportn' Life Records and MYX Music Label are a force to be reckoned with.

They Live! Now Known as Mash Hall


They Live! can now add the phrase, "formerly known as" to their name as they recently switched their style up due to the governments. Check Ear Candy for the details and just know that Mash Hall is now the name. I'm sure they'd appreciate a follow to their Twitter. Question is, which one? @THEYLIVE206 or their @MASHHALL account?

Megalodon Clothing

Jordan Nicholson started the Megalodon brand last year with a few tee's and now he introduces his first beanie. So, what does the name mean? I've been told that it "comes from a prehistoric giant giant huge dinosaur shark... basically megalodon's are awesome" which means the brand is too!

Haiti We Stand - A Benefit for the Victims in Haiti at Nectar


Click on the flyer above for more details.

Seattle’s music scene is brimming with creative, hard-working artists who care about helping those in need—and who know how to party. In that tradition, on Monday, January 18, a handful of the city’s favorite DJ's will descend upon Nectar Lounge’s well-equipped sound system to provide the jams for a benefit party with proceeds going towards relief efforts in Haiti.

The impoverished Caribbean island, shaken to its core by a magnitude 7 earthquake earlier this week, needs every cent it can get to fund the efforts of those already elbows-deep in the challenging tasks of picking through the rubble and rebuilding their nation. Here at home, Nectar and its partners offer you the opportunity to gather in celebration & reflection to contribute what you can financially to the cause.
We’ll see you on Monday!

Evergreen State of Mind Seattle Remix VIDEO


spotted on 206Proof

Seattle has its own anthem to counter Jay-Z's 'Empire State of Mind' called Evergreen State of Mind. Lyrics below.

Yeah were rolling up Ballard, ride by Queen Anne
Wave to my main man
Matthews and his rock band
Drive down I-5, holla back Huskies
Our teams
eatin so much, they call 'em husky

I used to mug at Shorewood drinkin
mad Americanos
way up there in Lynnwood, dodge Asian-Americanos
Lightin
up a steamboat, ridin on the ducks blazed
Catch me in the bakery with
Douglas making cupcakes

Bussin through Denny, Nevermind the traffic
Ladies here got back so Broad, you'd think them plastic
This my stop in
CD, home of my boy Bruce Lee
used to break dem mofos and Kareem in movie
after movie

With Ryan on the Empire, Hanks on Alki
Pike Place the
right space for fish fly bys
Playa I be buzzed out, Sippin straight black
coffee
Tell by my plaid flannel, that i'm most definately from ...
Sea-Town, Emerald City where rain get played up
There's nothing but
green here

Now you're in Sea-Town
These trees will help you to
breath clear
Fresh air is here all year
Let's hear it for Sea-Town,
Sea-Town, Sea-Town

Catch me at the Safe with B.G. at an M's game
Junior made our team way more famous than an MC can
You should know I
bleed purple but i ain't a Yahoo!
I run Windows not crips, so I see blue

Clay molded the city and he brought em to their knees
Schultz sold
out Seattle and they locked the fuckin Key
And though they took our team KD,
Nick Collison
We still in Belltown with popped collars son

Remember
after the games, we'd eat @ Dick's with all the cats
Gotta message for
Howard, do the same without the @
Since I'm on the rap, and G Ell's on the
hook
If Jay's paying D Wade, I'mma pay Aaron Brooks

My money's wide
like the Amazon, free shipping when they sell it
Like hendrix with the
hammer on, this Sound's psychodelic
Space Needle soaring, Kingdome is long
dead
Long live King County, gem of the Nortwest thats ...

Chorus

Sky is crying on folks we blind to
Pulling off the freeway,
pretending theres no time to
Find the kindness confined to the well-off and
wealthy
Its the slightest of rights to be well-fed and healthy

Got a
spare coin, they like dimes not Nickels
Real Change is rare when youre livin
on a trickle
City so winded, its a sin that we dreaming,
While men on
the street sleep in ten under freezing

Cant make the bus fare, cant
fight the tide
Cant break the addiction, like a vice on their lives
Clearing tents in cities, its a scourge and
Seattle aint pretty, cant
stop the incursion

Stayed here for school, graduated to recession
Plant workers, engineers united in depression
Puffin on a Swisher, chase
it with a micro
Sleepless in Seattle is the only way that we roll ...

Chorus

Umbrellas in the air for the rain city
Street lights,
big dreams, all lookin pretty
No place in the world that can compare
Put
your lighters in the air, everybody say "yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah"
Now you're
in ...

Chorus
