the lack of truly open minded crowds in conventional Seattle club-ville is why I started & maintained The Rhythm Rug: 2nd & 4th Saturdays at the BLU Grouse - Seattle, WA for its glorious 3 year run. 9 months after its closure, the hunt is indeed on for similar digs to continue to push the eclectic genre & era jumping house party wave 🌊, & my sights are also set on touching US & international markets that are known to fool w/ my frequency, so stay tuned.

so filthy. absolutely flawless. kudos to whoever conceptualized & cooked this up.

THE HOOD INTERNET presents 40 YEARS OF HIP HOP

Over 150 songs from more than 100 artists representing 40 years of hip hop all crammed into 4 minutes. It’s not a chronological history of hip hop. It’s rappers from different eras finishing each other’s rhymes over intersecting beats, all woven together to make one song.
