Live Video: Raz Simone

photo by Bebe Labree Besch (view set)

Growing up, Raz Simone didn’t listen to the radio. He heard bits of gospel music in his house, but didn’t pay too much attention. In middle school, however, he began writing and performing his poetry over movie scores. At 14, Raz started to record his work. And now, some years later, he is making some of the best hip-hop music in the Emerald City. In addition to rapping, Raz produces, sings and does a myriad of creative work for his independent label, Black Umbrella. Staying a busy man, he will be releasing his upcoming project, Cognitive Dissonance: Part One, on March 6th. In the meantime, you can check out his in-studio performance with DJ Larry Mizell Jr. on Street Sounds here:
