You may say he is your cousin, and he could very well be, but for all intents and purposes, you can call him CuzN. A kissing CuzN? Well yeah, that’s kinda clever but we’re not talking about that, but we’re speaking of this.

There was a time when Kool Keith, as Poppa Large, considered himself the big shot of the East Coast. 25 years later, rapper Tairrie B. says she is the “Wicked Witch Of The West Coast” and considering it’s a Halloween weekend coming up, consider this the perfect time to check it out.

Oregon singer/songwriter Jackson Boone made an album called Natural Changes (which you can check out below via Bandcamp) and he ve made the first video from it in the form of “Runaway”, a wonderful acoustic piece that will make you wish for warmer days but comfortable blankets for bone-chilling nights with a significant other.
BTW: while the press release states Boone is from “Portland”, he actually resides in Cannon Beach, a town south of Seaside, Oregon, about an hour’s drive west of Portland. The video was shot in Cannon Beach and if the scenery looks familiar, you’ll recognize it as being used in the film Goonies.
That collaboration between Ras Kass and Jack Splash enters a new level, as Semi Hendrix (their united moniker) welcomes in Cee-Lo Green into the mix.
