One of my favorite NW hip-hop groups, the Blue Scholars just put out their 2nd single from the Bayani LP [buy it here]. Don't miss the DJ Sabzi playing the part of the bus driver.
As an added treat, check out this video of the Blue Scholars' fellow Massline Media label-mates Common Market performing live together with Geologic of Blue Scholars and Gabriel Teodros.
Add them to your collection!
Also, consider their associated act Common Market (same DJ, different MC)
