J. West album release party at The Whiskey Bar [Photos]

Vancouver, BC – In an attempt to branch our from the usual local Vancity rap talent we came across a cat named J. West. His recent release Better Late Than Never had us intrigued – clean production and raw energy with a fierce flow – so naturally when invited to check out his release party, we obliged.

Meanwhile, at The Whiskey Bar J. West had his clique in full effect with homies Master of Ceremony open the night. The trio played a few cuts before J. Dohe had his shot at the crowd. A whole other world of Vancouver rap was opening itself up on stage and it wasn’t too bad. Eazy T showed some Eastvan love while his partner in crime B-Day assisted in getting the room hyped for the main man.

West was wild. While champagne sippin’ and rhyme spittin’ he got a healthy sized crowd turned all the way live. We’re keeping these guys on our radar and suggest you do too. Cop Better Late Than Never here and check out the photo set after the jump.
