"Gifted Youngstaz Delivers Classic Seattle Hip-Hop On “Mike Permanent”"

Gifted Youngstaz just dropped a classic hip-hop vibed record with “Mike Permanent.”

The soul sample infused backdrop was produced by Pad Scientist. The layout of the record features a more traditional sound with a straightforward hook on a beat change while Gifted sprinkles words around sampled chops on the verse.

The Seattle based artist has transcended simply by releasing music and is the music/art curator for the local monthly hip-hop show Stay Happy at the Central Saloon. Every first Thursday, artists gather to showcase their music (note to artists, get in touch with dude!).

The record is one of the first singles from his upcoming EP Revenge Of The Iron Lung which is the follow up to his previous project Legend Of The Iron Lung. The golden era throwback sound featured production from Wizdumb, Akira Gautama, and Hekl the Mad Scientist.

So far, “Mike Permanent” shows a continuation of the same vibe created on the Iron Lung series but finds Gifted Youngtaz with a more full sound. We’re looking forward to hearing the series continue, stay tuned for the project and peep Legends below! - Respect My Region

Rapid fire flow, intellectual punch lines and endless endurance are the elements of any Gifted Youngstaz performance. A virtual unknown in 2017, Gifted's dual 2018 releases, "Legend of the Iron Lung" and "Revenge of the Iron Lung" quickly propelled him into the spotlight. Performing in historic Seattle venues such as the Nectar Lounge, the Columbia City Theater main stage, and the Central Saloon, Gifted capped off a strong freshman year by drawing a nomination among Seattle titans Parisalexa, Lil Mosey and Travis Thompson in Crane City Music's Town Love 2018 awards.

A purist, Gifted carries on the boom bap tradition, garnering comparison to Big L and Talib Kweli. His classic sound is bolstered by an all star production team that includes Wizdumb, Sendai Mike, Ear Dr.Umz, Akira Guatama, and Diogenes.
