A film about Northwest hip-hop from 2009
Hear Me Out
Seattle hip-hop blog 206UP picked this record as one of the “Top 10 Albums of 2009,” saying that:
The most underrated Seattle hip-hop album of the year. An unexpected dose of raw and real, Yirim Seck is an everyman emcee that just happens to be more talented than, well, almost every man in the local rap game. Like an expanded and Northwest-relocated version of A Tribe Called Quest’s 8 Millions Stories, Yid Seck experiences more lows than highs on his debut album, yet still perseveres like a champion. Hear Me Out neatly captures the pathos of the struggling working class as well as the current unbounded optimism of the local hip-hop movement.
