Macklemore and Seattle Rap Scene Documented on “The Otherside”

Aside from Sir Mix-a-Lot’s national anthem alluded to the natural beauty of big buttocks, Seattle hasn’t had a major influence on the hip-hop sphere. Following the musical lineage of grunge rock and Jimi Hendrix, the city’s scene is filled with talented artists. But in terms of hip-hop on a major scale, no artist has truly capitalized off their skill set until of late, with Macklemore & Ryan Lewis’ success, accompanied by the explosion of DIY digital music movement that’s settling as the norm for all indie acts. The film The Otherside attempts to document the scene that’s bubbling from the Pacific Northwest, featuring Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Blue Scholars, J. Pinder, and much more. No release date has been announced yet, but the teaser above triggers much excitement.
