Seattle Growth Podcast 4.4: Growth and hip-hop

How is Seattle’s transformation affecting the artists in its renowned music scene?

In episode 4 of the Seattle Growth Podcast, season 4, two local hip-hop artists put to words the range of emotions that they—like many Seattleites—are feeling as the city undergoes such rapid growth and change.

Hip-hop artist Draze, the Seattle-born son of African music legends, shares how his hometown’s changes have affected his music and his life.

And Dave B—who collaborated with Grammy Award-winning  Macklemore on the hit song “Corner Store,” performed in front of a sold-out Key Arena and on Jimmy Fallon’s Tonight Show before headlining his own sold-out show at Seattle’s Neptune Theater—offers an inside tour of the wild ride to prominence.
