X-RAY Chapter Six from Rostam Productions on Vimeo.

Portland Director Seena Haddad is back with Part II of his refreshingly unique Web Series, X-RAY. Starring an all star cast of Portland Hip Hop artists and community members including Fountaine, Wes Guy, Koncept, Mac Smiff of We Out Here Magazine and more. Examining the struggle between urban music and local authorities that many small towns face, Seena has taken matters in his own hands to deliver a creative way to tell the story and shed light upon much need issues. While people may have been skeptical at first of how the series was going to portray Portland and it’s budding hip hop scene, it seems Part II has been welcomed with open arms.
X-Ray follows the main character Marcus, played by Fountaine, as he develops from an aspiring rapper slash drug dealer in Part I, to finding his voice and the community beginning to embrace him fully. Reading like a book, Seena takes the audience chapter by chapter ranging from 4-10 minute episodes breaking down the realities of trying to make it as an artist and the challenges that come with success.
Watch Part II available now with music from Rasheed Jamal, Mic Capes, Vinnie Dewayne, Glenn Waco, Blossom, Brookfield Deuce, The Last Artful, Dodgr, Donte Thomas, Tribe Mars, Fountaine, Maze Koroma plus more, and be on the look out for Part III coming soon with appearances from Cool Nutz and Rasheed Jamal.

“Hands in the sky for your mans on a rise / One more time for the fans on the side / One pure rhyme for the feet on the ground / One more time for the beat that go BAOW”

Alexzander – Relentless III (mixtape)

You can tell how confident an artist is in his skill set by his track list. The less features he has, the more he’s ready to shine, or confident he can carry a project on his own. Mr. Alexzander is surrounded by tons of talent and he has tapped a few artists to compliment his skill set, but is ready to take the stage alone, and dominate every track put in front of him!
