Cool Nutz Hits MTV2 with Dirty repping That Dirty Life

Posted by Cool Nutz Lifestyle Blog |

Portland has always been a music town: It's notable for being the birthplace of the Kingsmen's "Louie, Louie" and the longtime home of famed singer-songwriter Elliott Smith. But much of the city's rich musical history involves influential bands, rather than platinum-selling ones. Dead Moon, The Wipers, Team Dresch, Poison Idea, Hazel: These bands still exert a sizable influence on the region's sound, and one can still find members of '80s sensations like Nu Shooz and the Motels performing around town today. But Portland's last decade has been one of transition from a quaint indie-rock community into a full-fledged musical economy. Bands from all over the country flock to the city, attracted by cheap rent and the success of groups like The Shins and The Decemberists. This is great news for area music lovers, even if it makes it tougher for good bands to stand out. There's plenty going on in PDX besides a thriving indie-rock scene: strong jazz, hip-hop, and experimental music emanates from Portland as well, often under the radar. The cliché is that many of Portland's hometown bands are received more enthusiastically in other cities, but some of them even seem to like it that way. They keep coming back for the music scene, the natural environment, the food carts (tons of 'em), and the disastrous job market. Home sweet home.

Cool Nutz Shows No Signs Of Slowing Down

Growing up in Northeast Portland, OR, Terrance Scott pka Cool Nutz always kept his eyes on the prize. Hip-Hop culture had always played a huge role in his life, but at no point did he think that Hip-Hop culture and business would mix to put food on the table. Using Run DMC’s “Rock Box” as his initial inspiration, Cool Nutz teamed up with childhood friend Bosco Kante to start their pursuit of the dream.

From the early days basement studio, to tours of Europe, Cool Nutz has represented Portland Hip-Hop not only on a local level, but has carried the city on his back on a global level.

From the vocal booth to the boardroom, Cool Nutz and Bosko went from aspiring artist and producer to the heads of independent powerhouse record label Jus Family Records. Using Jus Family Records as the outlet to release albums from Cool Nutz, it was also the vehicle to release titles from G-Ism, Maniac Lok, Izaya, Luni Coleone & Cool Nutz, D.B.A., and Kenny Mack.

With 7 critically acclaimed solo albums under his belt: Dis Niggaz Nutz(1993), Harsh Game For The People(1995), Speakin Upon A Million(1997), Verbal Porn(1999), Collabos(2001), King Cool Nutz(2007), and The Miracle(2008), Cool Nutz has stood up to the test of time, and is the blueprint of longevity and relevance from a truly independent perspective.

From features in national publications The Source, Scratch, XLR8R, Spin, Murderdog, and more, to cover stories in regional publications Willamette Week, The Portland Mercury, The Oregonian A&E, Eugene Weekly and more, Cool Nutz has proven that his musical creations and career moves are more then press worthy.

With over 500 shows under his belt, Cool Nutz has graced the stage with the likes of Wu-Tang Clan, The Game, Ice Cube, Ludacris, Tech N9ne, E-40, Too Short, Mac Dre, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Trick Daddy, Run DMC, The Clipse, The Cool Kids, Common, The Dogg Pound, Sir Mix A Lot, Redman, The Grouch, 2 Live Crew, Andre Nickatina, Baby Bash, and more.

Cool Nutz has seen the highs and lows of this ever-changing music business. From the excitement of signing recording deals with Big Beat/Atlantic Records and Universal Records, to the disappointment of seeing those deals take a left turn for the worst. But with the mindset of a champion, Cool Nutz would only persevere to have his biggest recorded successes on Jus Family Records.

Understanding that diversity is the key to success in any business environment, Cool Nutz has applied his skills and business acumen to open many doors for not only himself, but the City of Portland as well. From Clearchannel Radio’s Northwest Breakout Radio Show, The Portland Oregon Hip-Hop Festival, and Executive Branch Management, Cool Nutz has used his professional moniker to create revenue, opportunity, and a very fruitful business career.

Standing as a testament of quality, creativity, integrity, selflessness, and professionalism, Cool Nutz’s career is still in full swing. With his recent signing to Suburban Noize Records, he will release his most polished work to date on the “Young Obama” album, which is scheduled for and early 2010 release.
