NW on the map! Destiny City Hip Hop hits another level with 00G

Tacoma, WA native Greg Double releases “From Tacoma With Love” a throwback hip hop project, nationwide June 16th with First Degree The DE’s Fahrenheit Records.

4 years in the making, this album was originally entitled “00G: From Tacoma With Love” and had been slated for an independent street album, release was delayed after Blue Nose Music became an interest of Westcoast Rap Veteran First Degree The DE and Fahrenheit Records.

“Tac With Love” was broken back down into pieces, and completely re-mixed and mastered by the musical genius, now executive producer – Tacomas’ Cameron Couch. Next for the album artwork, originally designed by Goph of 19/85 Design, it had to be completely redone as to reflect the changes in label, contributing artists and to get “retail ready” shrink wrapped and barcoded. (Secondary graphic design credit goes to C Couch)

With beats ranging from jazzy to mobb – with an earie twist – “Tac With Love” is page right out of the book of Raps hay-days of the 90’s (producers include Sk8Beatz, 3HMB, Tony Snow, JohnnyESPN, Eripp, Phenom57 and Thurge) and boasts over an hour of funky beats to ride/ chill/ party to. 

Hot features in this! Guest starring (in order of appearance) are TaeBoi, 5ive 3re, TACtical, Lil Gr3y, Gamble, Tony Snow, Cameron Couch, Castroni, Awall aka 2piece, Thunderchief, and Goph – with scenes by OnOne & Shao Sosa – spread out over the 18 tracks.

In addition to physical distribution by City Hall Records, and a massive web presence thanks to The Orchard Digital, you can hear Greg Double’s music spinning worldwide via WindowsMedia, iTunes Radio and more thru Fahrenheit Radio.. That’s FahRadio.com for details

((*Editors note) Upon official release June 16th on iTunes, the album title is only “From Tacoma With Love” due to the way computers would sort a product starting with “Zero Zero G:” so the official title on Apple Music will be “Greg Double – From Tacoma With Love”)

With edgy lyrics over smooth, hard hitting beats Tacoma, Washington based Rap group Blue Nose is helping to maintain the old school Westcoast sound that has long since been lost in today’s music scene.

Under the guidance of Fahrenheit Records, Blue Nose has reached a whole nother level in the Westcoast Rap scene. With features from well known and loved NW artists like Shao Sosa, Awall aka 2piece, Tony Snow, Skrilla and Cali transplant King Scrub – along with an appearance from San Francisco OG Rappin 4 Tay and Mr The DE – First Degree himself; Release The Hounds is of a caliber never before heard out of the Northwest region.

Labeled as a compilation, The Hounds is actually a full length 20 track LP composed of all original tracks. Blue Nose showcases their versatility and aptitude for Rap with this album, grabbing ahold of their slot among Underground factors and holding it tightly. Artists Thunderchief, Greg Double, Tactical, and Castroni have been rapping and performing around the NW for a decade and gaining the respect of fans and artists alike. Artists 5ive 3re, Mac 9, Dank Xmas, and Lil Gr3y while younger in the game prove their worth with their appearances on The Hounds album. Wynter Brown, an extremely talented young artist hailing out of the West Midlands, UK joins forces with Blue Nose on a track entitled “Da Breed” along with Thunderchief, Greg Double and First Degree The DE.

The production credits behind this project are as impressive as any other element of this NW classic. Bay Area veteran producer 3HMB of Hotbox Ent, Oregon based Mobb style producer Tony Snow, Mainstream producer Sk8Beatz, Blue Nose’s own Phenom57 and Chuey Boy Tactical, Iballz of Tac Army Radio and Tac Town Records, Built Supreme up and comer Dank Xmas, StudioMike from Denver Colorado, and Mooch Music out of Florida set the tone for the grittiness of The Hounds and the bar very high for upcoming Underground Rap artists.

As of February 17th 2015 “Release The Hounds” is available on all major online retailers as well as in stores, with the help of Fahrenheit and distribution through City Hall Records.
