The best kept secret in music


"Twin Tandem wield Hip-Hop"

In the Pacific Northwest hip-hop has evolved into a medium for motivating a positive outlook on life. The rap group 605 Inc. (consisting of five members, two being twins) have created a poetic platform of surviving with a positive perception and lifestyle. On their debut album, "Art of a Rappin' Poet" they seek to deliver their optimistic messages, while uniquely blending an original array of melodies with an emphasis on bass and drums. Enticed with the content of the groups lyrical delivery, being intellectualy sound, and utterly conscientous of today's issues, the group has introduced a style in hip hop that is able to teach and enrich the lives of others! - Portland YouthBuilders Newsletter


"Art of a Rappin' Poet"


Feeling a bit camera shy


Pacific Northwest Hip Hop given in an explosive array of poetic freedom. Robert Neal, Laeon & La'Traon Carter established Razor Sharp Records out of Los Angeles, CA and operates in the "Rose City", Portland, Oregon. Razor Sharp Records is organized to professionally promote raw, undiscovered talent. For instance, 605 Inc. (LaEZd, TriZeE' LoQ, Double N, Don Juizzy) a group that represents the root, the family, the branches of the tree, infiltrates the mental with spiritual, philysophical, and shady life conflicts. On "Art of a Rappin' Poet" various producers and young up and coming artist: Cutthroat & Baby Capone (Ehtylimaf), and Nacho inspired to deliver an album that has tracks full of bumps for everyone!

605 Inc. evolved in 1989 by freshmon from Grant and Jefferson High Schools in Northeast Portland. The core of the group are identical twins from South Central, Los Angeles (Laeon & LaTraon Carter), LaJuane Brown, and Nathaniel Burton. Seeing the lack of adequate resources for youth, in addition, being constantly bombarded with negative influences in the Rose City (gangs, selling dope, stealing, violence, drug abuse, police brutality), these young men started putting their energy and resources in being more constructive and inspirational to their fellow peers. Furthermore, instead of being followers, 605 Inc. thrived to become trendsetters dedicated to positively survive and not struggle in the catch 22 pitfalls of society. They figured together, as a tree, the root, the family, they could achieve their goals and far beyond!!!
