Serge Severe is a Portland mic-slayer on a mission. He is one of the most well-rounded, multi-dimensional MCs in the Northwest, possessing a formidable stage presence, strong song-writing skills, and ferocious freestyle ability. He has shared stages with Hip Hop heavyweights, Wu Tang Clan, De La Soul, Talib Kweli, Goodie Mob, Dead Prez and many more. He has been praised in Okayplayer and URB Magazine’s Next 1000 Column, which called Serge’s music “…a brand of lyricism and humor that are downright Ghostface-esque… Serge is a true wordsmith that isn’t afraid to be himself.”
Serge Severe and Universal DJ Sect have combined forces once again to drop their latest album “Back On My Rhymes”, available in March 2011 through Focused Noise. Severe mixes his razor sharp flow over Sect’s soulful and funky hard hitting production. This time around they effortlessly incorporate some of the Northwest’s best emcees like Braille, Cool Nutz, Illmaculate, Theory Hazit, Luck One, Destro of Boom Bap Project, and Gen.Erik of Animal Farm. Their last album, “Concrete Techniques” was received with great praise from fans and reviewers alike, and was named as one of the top Albums in 2008 by Rapreviews.com and Hiphoplingustics.com.
The first single from Back On My Rhymes is a Braille assisted track, “Can’t Stop, Won’t Stop”, and trust me, it’s rather dope. It’s strictly for the cats that love that old school flavor. I played it a good four or five times in a row.
Get it after the jump….
