Smoke DZA, Yo X! and Kid Kid, Stewart Villain, Cassow and Nottus
320 SE 2nd Ave.
[WEED RAP] Harlem MC Smoke DZA has been labeled a “weed rapper,” and deservedly so. His songs have names like “K.U.S.H.” and “Smoke-N-Dope,” and his latest album is aptly titled Rolling Stoned. This isn’t necessarily a bad thing. DZA, along with fellow endo smokers Curren$y and Wiz Khalifa, has carved a niche out for himself by creating lush, spaced-out hip-hop that floats somewhere between ambient electronica and “’93 Til Infinity.” Of course, this type of music sounds best when you’re stoned, so prepare to see DZA through a thick veil of smoke at the show, which is actually a release party for Seattle rapper AyeLogics. If a bunch of weed rappers want to have a release party, why not do it in Portland, right?
