Serge Severe & Gen.Erik ‏- Say Nothing‏‏‏ [Video]

Posted on June 25, 2015 by


The recent war between Hip-Hop and the Portland police department has been well documented.  As the PPD continues to target and shut down local Hip-Hop shows, very few artists are able to make a name for themselves in the city better known for Indie Rock.  Serge Severe is one of the few MCs that has been able to stand out despite recent scrutiny, consistently releasing high quality albums, and touring throughout Europe and the US with the likes of Slum Village and members of The Pharcyde.  Serge’s cohort Gen.Erik was also one of Portland’s most noteworthy DJ/producers, prior to fleeing to New York and eventually to LA.  Since his move, Gen.Erik has been invited to perform at a number of high profile events, including the MLB All Star Game and BCS National Championship, and was also a co-founder of the first annual Dilla Weekend in Miami this past February.
Serge Severe and Gen.Erik have worked together for seven years, but are only now collaborating on their first dual project with Serge handling the MC responsibility and Gen.Erik managing the production.  Their new video “Say Nothing” features Serge displaying his lyrical prowess over a hard boom bap beat produced by Gen.Erik.  The video was directed by Sam Lingle, who also directed the duo’s previous video “Stay Alive”.  Their album is scheduled to be released later this year, and features a whole slew of legendary artists and DJs to be announced soon.  Stay tuned.
