    Porter Ray ft. Cam The Mac - "Blackcherry"

    Sub Pop continues to kill it. First it was Shabazz Palaces, then clipping., and the latest hip-hop signing to the label that introduced us to Nirvana is this Seattle based rapper named Porter Ray. He's got some of the experimental elements of his labelmates, but there's a more straightforward, jazzy element to what he's doing. Plus, he's got a sharp tongue and a way with words that never allows for a dull moment. How did we not hear about this dude sooner? Luckily, it's pretty certain that we'll be hearing a lot more of him in the future. His debut album isn't coming until 2015, but there's plenty of good music to explore. Check out more here.—Confusion
