Va – Northwest Flava (1992-1997)

Ok I admit it. It has been way too long since I’ve posted anything from the  west coast. And I live out here now, sheesh. Alright Schenectadyfan, quit looking back east and check out what’s right in your neighborhood. Portland and Spokane don’t really constitute the whole northwest but damnit, I can’t really bring myself to take Spokane seriously as a breeding ground for hip hop. Spokanites feel free to flame me. Seattlites feel free to chuckle. Portlanders stand up! To everyone else, yes we’re a little crazy up here. Or maybe it’s just me. Must be the rain. While winter flogs us, kick back with some lime green goodies and put this compilation on your stereo. Download links and tracklistings after the jump as always.

    damn you guys get deep! the cat that made all the beats on that 206 family cd was my homies older brother ryan, last i heard he was a truck driver or somethin.
    i just saw d-sane a couple weeks ago, who was featured on your last northwest mix. hes still making music and mastered some tracks for this russian kid from seattle named avatar, hes also opening up a medical marijuana dispensary in the north end. you need to throw some of his old full time soldiers cuts on the next mix man, hit me up if you want some tracks, i got em all!

  4. Did the full time soldiers have anything out prior to 1996 ? I have a ‘demo’ tape from them circa 96, but wondered if they got their start earlier. On another note, do you or anyone you know up there have an album from ‘The Rat Pack’, out of Olympia. Came out in 1993 I think.
