22 Sep Ep. 20 – Maze Koroma
Welcome to episode 20 of Crate Diggers!
Our guest for episode 20 of Crate Diggers is Portland rapper, Maze Koroma of the Portland hip hop collective The Renaissance Coalition. Maze has had especially memorable performances at Portland monthly hip hop event, The Thesis and as a crew, The Renaissance Coalition are being noted for their creative music and art. Maze chose a list of 10 songs important to him and Verbz provided the vinyl for this episode. During the interview, fellow Ren Co rapper Zoo? chimes in a few times as well.
Each episode includes a featured producer and guest producers to help provide the soundtrack for an episode. For episode 20, our featured producer is Richmond, VA’s Swank Noire. Swank first submitted beats as a guest producer but we enjoyed his stuff so much that we asked him to be the featured producer for this episode. Find his music on Soundcloud and follow Swank on Twitter @_xSwankNoire. Our guest producers for this episode are Buddy Hall (Soundcloud) apparently repping Brazil. Vagrant (Soundcloud) out Aberdeen, Scotland. And last but not least, SLOTH.TOES aka SLOTHRA (Soundcloud) repping COMABOYS right here in the Northwest. Shout out to his girl MoodyMoons for listening to the show! As usual, our in-house producer Steez also laid down some of his beats for the episode.
