We've really been enjoying doing these interviews, documenting our scene and we hope that you've enjoyed them as well. We decided that in addition though we also want to have some opportunities to just hang out, chop it up and talk about whatever comes to mind. Sooooo... every other week we're going to be bringing you a new episode that we're calling "The Sesh". We are going to do our best to have a guest on each one as well but instead of spending the whole time strictly talking about their life/career, we'll have the freedom to talk about new music, movies, politics and much, much more! Expect to hear new guests and of course "friends of the show", so tell a friend to tell a friend that you'll now be getting a new episode (in theory) Every Single Week! #ItsTheBiggest
We had to do a special episode and dedicate it to the man we call "The Mayor" of Seattle Hip Hop. Jon Moore paved the way for so many of us here in the town so we got stories and memories from a bunch of people that were close to him to help keep his legacy alive and celebrate what a great man he was. #ItsTheBiggest
OG Producer/B-Boy/DJ and retro enthusiast Supreme LaRock came through to hip us to his storied journey during the evolution of hiphop and break down how he's managed to stay as relevant as ever just by doing him and playing the music that he loves. Lots of great town game, gear talk and Dj stories in this one y'all. #GetFamiliar #ItsTheBiggest
The man himself, radio veteran and self-proclaimed "Mayor Of Lake City" Eric Powers came through for a super dope conversation where we talk about everything from his childhood pirate radio station to interactions with 2pac and get surprisingly detailed about music and radio industry politics. If you grew up in the 90's or 00's in the Town, his voice was influential in a major way so #getfamiliar #ItsTheBiggest
It felt like we'd known each other for years when our new homie Jarv Dee came by to chop it up with us. This man has been killin it with multiple releases over the past few years that have had a huge impact on the scene and put his name up there as one of the town's illest MC's. If you're not already, now is the time to #GetFamiliar #ItsTheBiggest
NW HipHop's current leading lady came by to break down her rise in the scene, her musical roots and with the help of her Moor Gang family/ride to the studio Jarv Dee, we pretty much just cracked funnies the entire time. Don't sleep on this spitter cause she can sing too so #getfamiliar #ItsTheBiggest
Local creative visionary, producer/MC and self-proclaimed computer geek Tay Sean came by to drop some knowledge on us and walk us through his musical evolution. Pushing the music forward is not something he's setting out to do, but it happens every time he's involved with a project so #GetFamiliar with one of Seattle's most innovative artistic contributors. #ItsTheBiggest
One of our closest homies and biggest lyrical inspirations Mystery One came thru the podcast to talk about his lengthy experience in the hip hop game and give us some stories from his recent soul searching bicycle trip down the west coast. An instant classic with great music as well. #ItsTheBiggest
My guy Dom Sicily (formerly known as Def Dee) stopped in for an interview during his recent visit from NY. We chopped it up about his production evolution, being slept on as an MC and his latest collaborations with some rising talent. One of the Town's illest producers kicks game on his journey through multiple indie label distribution deals. As always... #ItsTheBiggest
Beatsmith, DJ and all around creator Able One aka Able Fader stopped thru to chop it up about his evolution in music and the jump to web show entrepreneur. Another Summit head and definitely a personality to add to the roster. Get hip to one of The Town's BoomBapiest. #ItsTheBiggest
My family Lace Cadence came through and we got his full story down from how I met him when he was in middle school to Blast Off, Clockwork and where he's come with The Flavr Blue. It's all familiarity and jokes with this one. #ItsTheBiggest!
Finally the first woman to grace The Biggest and it just happens to be my good friend Karen Wild. This lady has tons of great stories from her 19 year career in radio, plus this ep is packed with hilarity and anecdotes about some of hip-hop's finest that you've definitely never heard before. #ItsTheBiggest
The homie Pearl from the legendary Champagne Champagne came thru with some amazing stories, new music to share, and an impromptu ditty to wrap up the episode. One of the most fun we've had recording. An inspirational soul this man is and this needs to be heard. Get familiar. #ItsTheBiggest
Fresh off 8 months of touring with Macklemore, one of my closest friends, Brysen Angeles of the world famous Massive Monkees crew stops by to talk about B-boy influences, MM crew history, whether it's cool to bite and of course Downtown. Get hip. #ItsTheBiggest
My big bro DV ONE stopped by to give us some game on everything from jheri curls to DJing for the Seahawks. It's a plethora of laughs and dope history so get familiar with our latest episode. #ItsThe Biggest
Soooo... we did this interview with the homie Spekulation a few months ago and got to talk all about his production, how he gets his weed paid for and his plans for the future. Fast forward to 2 weeks ago and he ended up announcing that he was gonna stop rapping. We definitely had to get him to come back to explain his decision and he was kind enough to oblige. Pull up a chair. #ItsTheBiggest!
Fresh off a year-long stint across the pond my bro DJ Hyphen comes through for one of my favorite episodes to date. We spend minimal time on his back story and then delve into everything that comes to our minds from Game Of Thrones to Kanye. A true convo amongst music nerds. This is what The Biggest is all about. #ItsTheBiggest
Hella excited to finally put this one out. I reached out with a "cold call" FB message to the OG, Nasty Nes a while back, to come on the podcast and talk about his life in the hiphop radio game and he was nice enough to come and bless us with a super ill interview. The nicest guy with amazing stories. It's another one for the books. #ItsTheBiggest
My guy Prometheus Brown aka Geo of The Blue Scholars came through for an epic in depth convo about all things food and music related. From his formative years at UW to becoming a respected MC and his most recent adventure as a chef doing Filipino pop up restaurants, this is a tale you don't want to miss. #ItsTheBiggest
Our guy Jimmy James stopped by to talk about all of the work he's been doing and the projects he's a part of. From his work with Grace Love & The True Loves to his weekly gigs with Funky 2 Death and everything in between, Jimmy has cemented himself in this new soul revival that's making some major waves as of late. #ItsTheBiggest
My long time friend and part time gate keeper/key holder Larry Mizell stopped through to talk about literally everything we could think of. From his family's history in the music biz to his own contributions, NW message board beef to writing his own weekly column and embracing the changes in today's mainstream hiphop. This is an extended episode you dont wanna miss. #itsthebiggest
We had a chance to sit down with "Mr. Thrift Shop" himself Wanz for a great convo about his musical history, touring the world nonstop for three years straight, whats next after having a platinum grammy winning song and transitioning back to a 9-5 job in the meantime. As always #ItsTheBiggest!
So glad to finally sit down and talk with my brotha Marques Lewis aka Risk One. I had to get down to SF to make it happen but it was well worth it as we talked about how he randomly fell into DJ-ing, building his brand in the remixing game early and of course the battle with Cancer that he's been going through for almost a year and half. So much good conversation came out of this trip and this interview so we're excited to get it out there. Joe wasn't able to make the trip so shout out to my guy Chad on the impromptu co-hosting. We're still evaluating your future with the company. LOL! #ItsTheBiggest
My guy Aaron stopped by and we got the full history of his musical journey from student of music to band leader plus we got to chop it up about how he fell into the opportunity to help bring The Legacy of Seattle HipHop exhibit to fruition.
On the day of my man's sold out homecoming show at The Showbox in Seattle, we present you with the definitive Sol interview. We talk about everything from racial identity to his interesting super hero cousin and delve into the thought process behind his new album and the team that helped him put it together.
