(Vera) This all-ages bill features three of the fastest rising (for all the right reasons) rappers from the greater Northwest. Cam the Mac, Moor Gang member and West Seattle repper, excels at a classic brand of smoked-out pimpery—think Devin the Dude minus the singing. Mack Ned has already flexed his ultra-modern ambient sample/booming drums production skills on countless Moor Gang tracks, but his first single, "Fireworks" (apparently from his upcoming album Alice Glass), proves he can hold his own as a rapper who's "poppin 8-bit drugs/choppin 808s up." Portland's Cassow burst onto the proverbial scene earlier this year with his Cold Winter mixtape, which, in addition to solid, varied beats and a thorough, hungry-sounding delivery, includes big-name features from Danny Brown and Smoke DZA. This one's a can't-miss for local rap heads.
