Portland's dopest up and coming artists, producer Drae Slapz and rapper Rasheed Jamal

Drae Slapz has had a busy year holding it down as the live DJ for some of Portland’s most exciting hip-hop acts, including Mic Capes, Brookfield Duece, and Lang, as well as maintaining his own Saturday night residency at The Pharmacy. His latest announcement finds the popular performance DJ switching gears though, getting back behind the boards with a new single, One Mo Time, which features Rasheed Jamal.

“What’s your name, what’s your number, what’s your sign?” Jamal raps smoothly over the bouncy acoustic beat between hypnotic verses. Known for his trap-stylings, Slapz has long stood out amongst Portland producers for going against the regional grain, opting to consistently create swaggy, uptempo soundscapes that lend more to moving your feet than nodding your head. One Mo Time is no different, invoking a polished – even commercial – feel that’s both club and radio ready.

It’s been over a year since Drae dropped “Late Nights: After Hours”, but this single stands alone, with no announcement of an upcoming project. Rare Vibes indeed. Enjoy the latest from Drae Slapz and highly-acclaimed artist Rasheed Jamal, and stay tuned for more upcoming announcements this summer.
