When one thinks of Portland, Oregon, it’s likely that hip-hop does not come to mind. Well, North Portland native, Mic Capes is about to change that. A quick listen to Capes tracks on his SoundCloud page, and it’s evident that this MC isn’t into following trends and he has a valid story to tell.
The freshman rapper recently released the Puurple World-directed music visuals to his song, “Well Known,” produced by Drae Slapz, from his Sheesh EP. In this video, it’s just a regular day in the neighborhood that starts with Capes catching W’s in a dice game and ends with him getting robbed.
““I grew up off Fessenden, yeah that was my residence/ Bangin and dealin, yeah that elements/ I’ll let that settle in, schemin and meddling/ Yeah we was broke, broke as a joke, But we found the medicine/ Jackin and schemin, some of us caught felonies, i had a vision of rappin’ on melodies” he raps.
Watch the video above and check for Capes on Soundcloud or iTunes.
