DJ Quik, Suga Free, Cool Nutz, Chillest Illest

When: Sat., Oct. 5, 8 p.m. 2013


Rapper, manager, and host of the Northwest Breakout show (the only mainstream radio hiphop show in town), Cool Nutz has been active in Portland’s hiphop scene since 1992. His sound is much like the regional underground hiphop artists he plays on his Sunday night show, full of innovative splicing and sampling, and always the freshest of beats. He’ll be opening for Suga Free and DJ Quik, who is just beginning to play again after a six-year hiatus from his Platinum career. Between his hiphop show, hosting Portland’s only hiphop festival, managing his own record label, and recording and playing shows, Cool Nutz is the breath of fresh, funky air keeping Portland’s rap flame alive.
