PDX Pass The Mic - Presented By: Terminill & V1Creative
This is easily one of the best submissions we've received here at LOTB. The video features 8 of the dopest MCs from Portland Oregon. Here's a brief description of each artist and their respective styles:
"Inspired by the Pepsi Smash campaign of late, the crisp audio-video collaboration puts 8 of the city’s hottest, most explosive rappers on display. Serge Severe (of Animal Farm) leads off repping Portland on an incendiary digital beat loop, and makes way for Th3ory Hazit (Humble Beast) and Jon Belz (Chill Crew) to work magic on the track. A quick skip in the beat and it’s time for Luck One (of Seventh Science) to add his bit before Quiz Zilla flirts with double-time flows. Next, Mila Gordana adds a woman’s touch with her distinctively sultry sound before Cassow gets in it, leaving the final verse for Braille (Humble Beast) to drop knowledge."
Portland is now just latest in a long line of cities to create a Pass The Mic track. Houston, New York, Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Dallas and Chicago all have also done a Pass the Mic event. I didn't know Portland had so much underground talent but thinking back, we have posted both Luck-One and Quiz Zilla on the site before. Be on the look out for all of these MCs as I'm sure we will be hearing more from them in the near future. Also, grab the MP3 of the Pass the Mic event below.
