If you were everything you dreamt of. What would it be?
Location: Your Mind
Myke Bogan has been a staple in the Portland hip hop scene for a long time now. He has a casual voice that relaxes you & his lyrics suddenly make you weak at the knees. For Myke, it’s all about the simple yet beautiful parts of life – cold sushi, morning sex, weed..
These days he splits his time between Portland and Los Angeles. He has a lot of new music coming out this year, so make sure to stay up on his grind. His project Rare Treat, a collaboration with Neill Von Tally and The Last Artful, Dodgr has pretty much been stuck in our head for a month.
Myke Bogan stopped by our HQ in downtown Portland to discuss a few things that were on his mind.
First and foremost is SILK JOCK STRAP, his new EP that releases TOMORROW, August 12th! Pre-Order it now or catch it on iTunes tomorrow! He also talked about his crew The Soar Losers and their new team member, Vinnie Dewayne! Then he told us about his feelings towards the last couple of lists of the top Northwest hip-hop, essentially, he disagrees with their picks… The always honest, always charismatic Myke does not disappoint . If you know what you are doing, you will definitely go get this project.
Having been off the grid for the Sasquatch Music Festival, this playlist is a day late. However, if I had posted this prior to the festival I would not have known what I know now. Black Joe Lewis, KONGOS, and the Flvr Blue are all worth listening to and did not make it on to the playlist originally. Also worth noting – Cudi still has it. One of the more fun shows on the main stage in my opinion.
Nothing even comes close to the show that Outkast put on. They hit all the songs I needed – ATLiens, Aquemini, Crumblin’ Erb, SpottieOttie, Two Dope Boys, International Players Anthem, and Hey Ya!. Sir Luscious Left Foot aka Big Boi brought the heat we have all come to expect from him and Three Stacks left me more impressed with him than I already was. Do not miss these two if they come to a city near you.
I could go one for hours about Outkast, and what happens at Sasquatch stays at Sasquatch. Get ready for some good summers jams.
