The Northwest hip-hop scene has truly blossomed in the last few years, giving us some of the most talented young emcees west of the Mississippi. Seattle’s Thaddeus David, of the emerging State of the Artist and The Moor Gang rap collectives, is a prime example of the growing niche. Last week, the talented up ‘n comer dropped the second single off his upcoming solo LP.
On “NASA,” David goes in over the chill and laid-back production of DJ Semaj & 1stBorn creating an anthem of sorts with a motivational chorus fitting for the recent appearance of the Endeavour space shuttle in the west coast skies. This track is a perfect cure for a Saturday morning hangover with just the right amount of energy to elevate your mood. Stream this chill cut below, download it free, or support the artist and name a price, over at Thaddeus David’s Bandcamp page and look out for his upcoming project, Trapital Trill, due out on October 15th.
