The People North West bring back the value of classic 808s with “Sure Shot”
Vancouver, BC – Shifts in the seasons brings new energy and growth, as well as the birthing of new collaborations and projects in the rap community. We’ve recently seen the uprising of a promising local rap crew called The People North West. The group is composed of three individually strong lyricists and local emcees: Creed Taylor, Young Budda, and Tee Krispil who delve into the uncharted territory of classic 808’s among the current trend of trap beats and synths.
What we love about this group is the smooth delivery of frankly honest bars, and their balance of feminine and male tones (because honestly, when was the last time we saw a rap group with both male and female emcees). Handling all of the production within their team, Marleau provides the majority of the beats with some additions from Mikey J Blidge of IMUR.
Their latest release “Sure Shot” dropped on Aug. 6, and it’s a really good look to formally introduce these guys. The Marleau-produced track has reminiscent tones of old school rap mixed in together with modern perspectives.
