BOTW #50 – Raz Simone

I first heard of this week’s featured artist last year at the premiere of the Seattle hip hop/rap documentary, The Otherside (which also featured other Seattle hip hop/rap artists like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Gifted Gab, Sam Lachow, and more). Since then, Raz Simone has been blowing up the DIY-music scene here in Seattle and there is no looking back for this guy and his local creative team!

Raz Simone is easily distinguished among the rapidly growing hip hop/rap scene with his gravelly-rasp singing-talk tone, and raw rapping style. Raz musically verbalizes real-life scenarios in a clear and authentic manner that makes it feel like you are rolling with him throughout the streets of Seattle and its surrounding neighborhoods.

March 6, 2014 marks the release of Raz’s upcoming record, Cognitive Dissonance: Part 1. Stay tuned for more tour dates, but if you already have your Sasquatch 2014 passes, you can see Raz Simone and his rad live band this year!

Peace, Love, & Rock n’ Roll,
