Northwest heavyweight recording engineer Zebulon Dak isn't one to be pushed around. So after Cool Nutz pushed his buttons asking for his Accapellaz, Zeb felt he needed to address Cool Nutz's initial track.

Here is Zeb's response to "Accapellaz" from Cool Nutz. Check out "The Battle Of Yavin"..

Me and my good friend Zeb were joking online about him taking to long to get me my accapellas for a Funkdaddy mixtape, so I jokingly recorded a "DISS SONG" for the situation. Accapellas are serious business out here in these streets, and us rappers ain't playing with these engineers... Check it out.

Check out the new visuals for Jay Z & Kanye West "Niggaz In Paris"... This joint was an epic song 2011 and still rocks clubs, cars, and iPods.


When setting out to create one of the first classic albums from/for your city,
there’s bound to be some disagreements.
Nearly a year in the making at this point,
I could fill pages with how many changes this album has gone through.
Originally meant to be a FRSH SLCTS re-release & re-mix of their self-released EP
matched w/ half new/previously unreleased tracks recorded around the same time -
the group has since taken the project over themselves
& decided to mix some of their newest songs in w/ some of their first
for a more 360 degree of exactly who the Portland trio, TxE is.

Now included is a little bit of every style the group has incorporated to date -
from the region-defining back to basics boom bap of “Get It Back”
& the new official Trailblazers anthem, “The Basics”
to the talkbox-funk of “Around The World”
& gritty, trap-influenced trunk rattle of the Stewart Villain-produced “Laying Low,”
to the more downtempo introspection of “Sleepwalking”
& the live trumpet-assisted “End Of The Beginning” w/ Sam Trump -
TxE are definitely raising the bar for style & diversity
in a city that all too often can be stuck in the past
trying to recreate the sound of the early 2000′s underground acts,
or trying to perpetually catch up to whats “hot” at the moment w/o making it their own.

Mixed & Mastered by the group’s honorary 4th member, DJ FlipFlop
& artwork handled by Calvin Valentine himself,
We Get It In True is a true TxE effort through and through -
& the sound they’ve cultivated throughout it is nothing else if not their own.

As to whether or not WGIIT is the PRTLND classic the city had all hoped for -
only time will tell.

You can stream the whole LP before downloading below.
Be on the lookout for much more from the crew coming soon -
including WGIIT music videos, solo albums & side projecets from all three members & more.

1. The First One
2. Get It Back
3. Nothing New
4. Around The World
5. Higher (feat. Phil The Agony & Illmaculate)

8. All Of The Above (feat. Illmaculate)
9. Laying Low
10. Sleepwalking (feat. Caitlin Cardier)

12. The Basics (feat. Illmaculate)
13. End Of The Beginning

Portland Grandmaster Rapper Illmaculate drops what could be the Northwest Song of the Year in my book with his brand new joint "Rapper Of The Year".. This song is taken from his upcoming album "Skrill Talk" which drops on April 17th through Sandpeople Music/Wapikiya Records. The song is produced by Chase Moore and Hippie Sabotage. This is a clear demonstration of his incredible rap skills and if you don't like this you should slap your mother.

In another phase of the War of Words between DJ Chill aka Chilllest Illest vs. Luck One.. Luck One finally comes with his response with the assistance of his Brother Mac Smiff... Over the Rick Ross "Scheemin" track they respond to the initial verbal jabs thrown by DJ Chill aka Chillest Illest.. Check out "Assisted Suicide" right here and right now....

Luck One also uses this diss response as a great way to promote his upcoming project "Beautiful Music II" which drops February 21st via his website.



For those of you that haven't heard it, here is the initial song from DJ Chill aka Chillest Illest "Unlucky One" that started it.

In a page out of Hip-Hop Weekly comes an unexpected rap battle between 2 of the cities hardest working musicians. A few bars from the "PDX Pass The Mic" verse of Luck One got this whole thing allegedly started, as he stated "leave you crippled like DJ Chill".. Once heard by DJ Chill, Chill fired back with his response that has warranted a yet to be released response from Luck One. We will be posting the response from Luck One, as soon as it hits the streets.

Good rap competition can be good for the city and scene overall, just as long as it stays on wax.

Post your thoughts on the battle between DJ Chill aka Chillest Illest and Luck One..

This is where it allegedly started... "PDX Pass The Mic"



And this was the next step from DJ Chill aka Chillest Illest...
