Not bad! It kind of reminds me of the early days of cruising around the streets with friends and being reckless. Are there any more videos like this that I’ve missed? I always appreciate bike-centric cuts.
Gotta show some love for my dudes Trash Talk. This new-ish video was produced by Tyler the Creator of Odd Future. The OFWGKTA crew has their hands in every cookie jar it seems, and with good reason. This is a nice display of like-minded musicians of different genres intermingling and making something that is entertaining on levels beyond the normal realm of music video production.
Macklemore just dropped a new video. It is pretty on point with the thrift store shopping theme (my favorite pastime). The locations in the video are places I frequently shop at so it’s pretty rad to see them immortalized in this video. A lot of familiar people are extras in the vid as well. Check it out.
Blue Scholars have been holding down the Seattle rap game for a minute. The song name is a tribute to the Seattle basketball legend Slick Watts and the whole vid shouts-out to a lot of great Sea Town locations. Directed by our friend Jordan and full of cameos from locals; so rad!
How to Fix Your Bike with Style

The Game featuring Tyler the Creator of Odd Future (O.F.W.G.K.T.A) and Lil’ Wayne? Yes please! I have been rocking out to this track for months now and I am stoked that they went ahead and made a video for it.
Yea the Seatown homies doing it acoustically in this video. Thomas is reppin’ that Zlog tee!

Solid stuff coming from these guys. Keep an eye on them!
Here is a nicely done bio-piece of local Sea-town musician Pearl Dragon.
Zlog fully supports Seattle Hip-Hop including our talented friends Thomas and Pearl of Champagne Champagne. Check them out and if you see them live, they just might be repping Zlog.
This newly released track from 1stPlaceMuzic is pretty catchy. You gotta love a song that talks about picking up chicks on a dirt jumper.
Dope music video. I wish they were all like this.
Seattle music group Viper Creek Club is on the up-and-up right now, and I am abashed to say that it took me until seeing this video to post about them. In Seattle, you can’t throw a stone without hitting a musician (or a barista), and it is hard to say which bands will emerge from the local scene and go on to do bigger things. I have a feeling Viper Creek Club is one of the next Seattle groups to hit the radio waves so keep an eye on them, or better yet, an ear.
Their new album Letters is available for download here.
The cut! 2Morrows Victory is a group of creative individuals who get together and produce dope music. They happen to ride some slick track bikes as well. The group consists of Greg B, a London Based rapper from Chicago, along with South London based producer and musicians Alan Baltic, Rafael Powell, Alex Gordon and Shegz.

I love Prolly’s Tuesday Teardowns, but I always read ‘tear’ as in eye drop not as in rip-apart. So here is my one-time homage to John’s post, with a slight emo twist.
The neofolk chantings of King Dude are downright hypnotizing. The new album has just became available for download. Give it a listen here.
Congo wised me up to this video of Jayren Mychael giving rapping to Kanye’s Monster beat while rolling on his Fuji Track Pro. More proof that track bikes are edging their way into hip hop and rap culture.
You can download the mixtape at his blog here
…into this guys mouth.
Hrmm, seems like this video is looking to generate some haters. Hopefully, no ball sucking will take place.
saw it at Prolly!
Saw this video over at Prolly’s. It is 8 minutes long, but the visuals are rad the entire way through. Props to our girl Kelli (pink hair) from LA, who makes several appearances. Hmm, it seems like this bike thing is catching on.
