"Music Monday: Old Seattle rappers make weird, funny threats, don't care if you're impressed"

February 15, 2010 at 4:53 PM
Posted By Andrew Matson

Scanning through Seattle producer RC Tha Trackaholiq's new album "Full Circle," I'm noticing my favorite songs are by old guys. And by old, I mean "people who were rapping when I was born" (1982).

Sometimes it's annoying to hear all these young, no-perspective rappers laughing at their own jokes, patting themselves on the back for lyrics that really aren't that clever. Sometimes I just want to hear old guys who aren't trying to impress anyone kick some solid raps.

Here, area elders Wojack and Silver Shadow D pokerfacedly dispense hard truths, free advice, and goofball jokes. "In The City" is a neo-Shaft groove, "The Blastoff" is throwback electro; both tracks are produced by RC Tha Trackaholiq.

"In the City" by Wojack and RC Tha Trackaholiq
"I'm praying your milk curdles"

"I hope a dinosaur really steps on you"
end quote

"The Blastoff" by Silver Shadow D and RC Tha Trackaholiq
"I'll rip your mask off/ Blast off to outer space with your face/ Man I'm laced... Jack and the Bean Stalk...."

"Like Mr. Coffee, I stay hard on the grind"

Toward the end of the song, Silver Shadow D suggests the listener focus his/her chi and meditate.

Silver has 2 released albums to his credit, with the second spawning a worldwide charted underground dancehall hit
titled "Come Fi Love" produced by Seattle's own R. C Croone of Cidewayz Productions on Silvers late Lost & Found
Recordings label back in 1997. Both albums, including a 12 inch featuring Ezzo and Don G of Seattle's Southend
famous 46th St Hustlaz, were released on Lost & Found Recordings.

His first release titled "Sleepless....Tha Brickkks" at it's release (1995), was a long awaited project received with
open arms as one of the Pacific Northwests first Hip Hop CDs on the market, and later in the year 2000 earned
Silver induction into Seattle's Experienced Music Project museum. Althought the museums exibit is hardly a full
representation of Seattle Hip Hop history as a whole, he's happy to be recognized for his efforts, representation,
positive influence, as one of Seattle's Original Hip Hop Sons.

The second album and semi-compilation was tiltled L.F.I.(Lost & Found Insomniax)....Tha Resurwreckshun.
album featured some of Silver's closest friends and peers on the local scene. Artists from the spectacular Super
Rye and Solo Doe, to special guest appearances from J-Boogie, 46th St Hustlaz, Horton B,
S.C.U.M.(Injekshun & Tilla Voorheeves), and WolfPakk Emcees (DEROXS & Rude Dogg).

A Quote from Silver: “I've been compared to countless artists. I believe that is because at all points of my music
