Seattle Vs Portland (1993-1998)

Unless you are in the know, Portland is not among the 1st cities one thinks of for hip hop. Oregon is a state with less than 4 million people. Like it’s northern counterpart Seattle, the scene in Portland was largely unnoticed on a national scale during the golden era. It’s not that artists like Cool Nutz didn’t get widespread attention, but perhaps to a lesser degree than artists in cities which were more well known for hip hop. For damp heads up here in the temperate rain forest, Portland and Seattle are the centers of hip hop output. The style up here is generally a little different than that found further south, in the bay area and southern California. It’s hard to put a finger on it but you’ll hear what I mean in the infectious scratching of ‘206in It’, the melancholy vibe of ‘Bombay’, the darkness of ‘Join Tha Team’, in the abstract sound of ‘Seattle Rain’.
