The Twamps - A Journey Through Seattle Hip Hop by Davey D

Mers from Dred I Movement, emcee Julie C and B-Girl Chillz take us on a journey through the gritty sounds of the Emerald City in a new radio show they call the Twamps. Sleepless in Seattle?-You''re damn right. There's no way you can or should sleep on the talent in this town. Everyone is wide awake and making big time moves.

This city is ready to feed it, change it and recharge it with its collective energy.

Northwest hip-hop might be thriving, but it's still often overlooked by the mainstream media. There's no shortage of places to see and hear it. And at the front lines: young men and women who connect with their communities, their elders and the ones coming up behind them.

"The world is ready for a breath of fresh air. It's ready for authenticity and smart hip-hop," said Jace, a Seattle educator who is also an emcee with the Silent Lambs Project, a hip-hop group. "We are the last frontier, the Northwest."
