By the time you’re in your 20s If you don’t find yourself in one of two lifestyle deciding categories; cat people or dog people; I’ll just assume you don’t enjoy any other amazing worldly things and probably don’t enjoy listening to music.. 😐 for those of you who do, we appreciate you.

Its public information that the city of Seattle, Wa is a sanctuary city for all varieties of wild and domestic cats. Yet today we find the Puget sound native, city dwelling hip hop duo (Fahrenheit Records artists Greg Double and 5ive 3re) setting out to popularize another kind of cat; Rap Katz.

The two artists who connected thru social media sometime around 2010 or 2011, collaborating on self-recorded hip hop songs with what was then – little direction; have finally released their first OFFICIAL project. Their debut album “Chapter One” which is the product of countless hours of writing/ listening and recording and reflects their favorite songs of that era.. the first five years music.

Both 3re and Greg feel like by stressing the term Rap Kat they infer a deeper meaning and connection to west coast hip hop and it’s roots. By refuting the label of “Rapper” they seek to make known their stance; that everyone is a rapper/ and music has long since become lame saturated. “We understand that we’re venturing out of one overcrowded social construct (Rappers) and into a whole ‘nother classe system (the cat world).. but we’re ready to bridge that gap and we’re confident we can do it” -Greg Double

 

Their album Chapter One consists of mostly lo fi, westcoast style beats that you may be surprised to hear post-Y2K. It has an “instant classic” quality to it that becomes apparent almost instantly upon pressing play. With producers such as Sk8Beatz, Johnny ESPN, Tony Snow and Phenom57 the 10 tracks are laid out for the listener to sit back and relax to without hitting skip. Outside features on the album are few, bringing light to artists Thunderchief, Mae Dali, Cameron Couch, Payso and Subliminal Criminal. Artists which the 2 Rap Katz admit were considered very thoroughly, as not to disturb their groove.

“(But) this is meant as no snub to dog lovers” bandmember Greg Double wants people to know; he himself a self proclaimed dog person. The proud parent of two beautiful mix-breed dogs, one may be curious as to why Blue Nose Music (pertaining to Pitbulls) headquarters doesn’t have a 4 legged family member after its namesake.  “I watched too many dogs get mistreated, and arrested/ given away or euthanized in a short time and turned me off to pit bulls in the city of Tacoma.. but that is where the Blue Nose name came from. I may get one in the future.. who knows”  is the reason according to Greg Double.””2 Rap Katz” is about the real rugged and raw, the ugly untold stories” 5ive 3re was quoted as saying when inquired to regarding the reasoning behind the phrase.

You can find 2 Rap Katz music on any major online retailer, for as of yet it is only available in digital format. iTunes, Amazon, GooglePlay, Spotify and the rest, go check them out and stay tuned for a lot more.

I plead da fif! Couch and Fes-1 have the right to remain “Silent”

Blue Nose Music/ Fahrenheit Records recording artist/ producer Cameron Couch and Producer/DJ FES-1 are making noise by staying silent.

Tacoma, Washington musician Cameron Couch is known for creating unique musical projects;  that’s exactly what he’s done (yet again) with Silent.

In speaking with Couch I learned he originally created this project to collaborate with other artists – recording over his own instrumentals. After reaching out to 10 artists just to have most of them decline the offer – doh! He decided he wouldn’t put any vocals on the album at all. He would go all-out on the instrumentals, again that no one would record over.

The collab album idea started taking the shape of a (solo) rock/blues/jazz album with a Hip Hop foundation. Now Couch took to writing his project as a common love-story, reflected in the track titles, and played out over 15 tracks.

Somewhere during the creative process Couch got the idea to send “Silent” over to long time collaborator (Producer) DJ FES-1, whom Couch has over a decade of history with (and has never actually met face-to-face). FES-1 took to the project like his own, mixing/ scratching/ transforming the project into a molded-together masterpiece that they are both proud to put their names on.

Now word has come down from the top; long time Jazz aficionado, and Westcoast Rap OG – First Degree The DE is set to release “Silent” in the first quarter of 2017 on his label Fahrenheit Records. That means Couch and DJ FES-1 have a strong follow up to now label-mate Phonk Beta (of Brotha Lynch Hung, Madesicc Music fame) and his two Hip Hop/ Jazz instrumental albums “Symplex 1 & 2” as well as First Degree’s own “Instrumania” series.

Silent (imo) is a fantastic piece of music nearly 40 mins long that encompasses (what seems like) every type of instrument you can think of. You can set your playlist to random and listen to any one track out of sequence, but the album was made to be sequential – each track leading right into the next.

Look for Cameron Couch & DJ FES-1 “Silent” early 2017 on iTunes, Amazon & all the digital outlets from Fahrenheit Records, distributed by The Orchard/ City Hall Records.

What’s the US Military doing in Utah & Texas? Jade Helm 15: Secret Military Exercise

“Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare Is Becoming Our Reality” chronicles how America has arrived at the point of being a de facto police state, and what led to an out-of-control government that increasingly ignores the Constitution. Order today!

The looming Jade Helm exercise, set for July 15 through Sept. 15, labels Texas and Utah as hostile areas. Global Research also reported the military says New Mexico “isn’t much friendlier.” Other states participating: California, Colorado, Arizona and Nevada.

Some of the social media commentary so far: “The Pentagon’s ‘Operations Jade Helm 15′: The Floodgate towards Martial Law and World War III?”

And another: “Using Foreign Troops with Jade Helm Martial Law is TREASON.”

Yet one more poster pointed to recent reported Wal-Mart closures in Texas, California, Florida and Oklahoma with concern, saying the cited “plumbing problems” cited as the reason for the sudden shut-downs just don’t meet the smell test.
“Employees impacted by the Wal-Mart closures were given just a few hours notice about the six-month shutdown,” the blog Inquisitr wrote. “Approximately 2,200 employees will now be without a paycheck during the ‘extended repairs.’ … The abrupt Wal-Mart closures announcement has reportedly left employees confused and Americans pondering the existence of Wal-Mart underground tunnels and Operation Jade Helm conspiracy theories.”

One of the theories?

Inquisitr reports: “One of the widely circulating rumors associated with the Jade Helm Wal-Mart story on the Internet speculates that the military will use the underground tunnels to move undetected around certain states with the stores being used as either a communications hub or FEMA camps.”

The fear is ratcheted by the fact city officials who govern the areas of the impacted Wal-Marts say the stores haven’t filed any permit requests for plumbing problems, Inquisitr said.
So the question I want to pose to is Why are Texas & Utah declared hostile states and then share why I think the reason is? Likely because this elite covert training mission is to be carried out among “regular american civilians” without there knowing and as soon as an armed American shoots one of these “pawn soldiers” out of legitimate fear for his/her life & family, there will be “REAL AMERICAN VICTIMS” because the order for troops to shoot at will anyone who poses an immediate threat would soon follow. Also don’t buy into this STUPID WALMART SIDE STORY aimed to discredit whistle blowers and appear to the public like  it’s just “ANOTHER CONSPIRACY THEORY FROM THE CRAZY’s” so we ignore another one of these yet again…….In my opinion!!!
