B.A.G. – “Nasty” (Video)

B.A.G. is Blimes And Gab; specifically, the duo of San Francisco’s Blimes Brixton and Seattle’s Gifted Gab. “Nasty” is nice work on a boom-bap approach to a non-boom bap beat.

(The tempo matches up for a boom bap track though, might be worth dropping their vocals on a Golden Era beat… Hint, hint to the remix gods out there.)

Gifted Gab Performs “No Days Off” in Convenience Store for Swisher Sweets Artist Project (Video)

Three years ago I traveled to Seattle to cover the annual Bumbershoot Music festival. That trip turned out to be as much of a networking and new artist discovery as it was for festival coverage.  I was introduced to a multitude of artists and Gifted Gab is one that I told people about after seeing her perform live.  She has continued to work hard, releasing new music along with performing at shows up and down the west coast.  She even rocked out here in Atlanta for A3C 2016.  Well she has caught the eye of Swisher Sweets who have made her part of their convenience store sessions.  Yes the title explains exactly what it is Gifted Gab performing live inside a convenience store unannounced, unrehearsed, with real customers.  Gab definitely has the personality to pull this off.  So check out this cool footage where the Seattle emcee controls the crowd while they are grabbing a six pack and some swishers!

Gifted Gab – “4/20 (Gettin’ Smokay)” feat. Jarv Dee (Video)

Picture a sunny day in Seattle, with your friends, good music and plenty of that medicinal green! Well that describes Gifted Gab’s new video 4/20 Gettin Smokay featuring Jarv Dee.  The first lady of the Moor Gang spits lyrics over this Syko produced beat.  This is definitely a smokers anthem to rock with.  I look forward to getting back out to Seattle and maybe getting some of that green, for medicinal purposes of course LOL.

Seattle’s “Gifted Gab” Pulls A Lyrical “187” For The Moor Gang (Video)

There is a lot of quality Hip Hop coming out of the Pacific North West these days.  With artists like Dave B, Raz Simone also part of that Seattle wave is the “Moor Gang.  The Moor Gang is a collective of emcees repping Seattle and their first lady is “Gifted Gab.”  She lets loose some fire with her video for the track “187” .  The visuals are nicely done as she & the directors creatively borrow from the 1979 cult classic film “The Warriors.”   This is more of a mini-movie than a video directed by Andrew Imanaka, Devlin Dinish and Gabrielle Kadushin .  I had the pleasure of seeing Gifted Gab perform live last year at Bumbershoot Festival & I can say this sister is on her way so stay tuned!
