I don’t cover that much hip-hop but I was like why not this one because Myke Bogan is on this label called Eyrst Records.
That labels happen to have The Last Artful, Dodgr who I caught at Capitol Hill Block Party in Seattle.
Myke’s upcoming album Pool Party drops on August 18th.
Have a listen to the song Gravy which features Michael Christmas
Portland’s hip hop and r&b scene has really come into the public eye within the last year, and Eyrst Records, an imprint that was started by producer Neill Von Tally and former Portland Blazers player Martell Webster, is in the middle of that scene. The label’s next release is LA-by-way-of-Portland MC, Myke Bogan. Past Bogan releases hit the number 14 spot on iTunes Top 100 and the Bandcamp hip-hop charts the day it dropped, and he’s been covered by AllHipHop.com, The Source, Flood, Okayplayer.com, Hip Hop Weekly and even XXL’s The Break. He has successfully set the precedent for his stylized visuals and dynamic delivery, coupled with a charismatic and fiery persona, earning him more than 800,000 video views and landing on the same stage as hip-hop legends Snoop Dogg, Bone Thugs-N-Harmony, and more. Myke played a bunch of festivals this summer and fall tour plans are firming up.
