Posts tagged ‘Sol’

Is it love? Many names come to mind when asked about the Seattle scene, but to save some time Dave B, Sol and Jake One decided to join forces for “Boathouse.” This incredibly smooth track has the makings of a great single. The hook (“tryna get my paper and my shit on lock”) is infectious […]

SD Freshmen ’14: Sol

January 10th, 2014

Fans of Sol know his story in the last year. To catch the rest of the world up: he was given the opportunity to travel around the world for a year. A once in a lifetime chance that made him even more popular. His already loyal fanbase eagerly awaited tweets and Instagram photos from his […]

Video: Sol – Turn Me Loud

November 25th, 2013

“I want to see your face when I change the game,” Sol says within the first 30 seconds of “Turn Me Loud.” This line isn’t just another boast from a rapper, though. It holds meaning. Starting in Seattle, that change is coming. His upcoming show at Showbox Market (1,200 capacity) sold out over the weekend, […]

More artists should be doing these kind of documentaries that give us a peek into their album, mixtape or EP. For Sol, he chose the latter as his return after a year of traveling the globe and detailed his journey with Eyes Open. In this five minute short documentary, we get to see Sol’s vision […]

Seattle heads will know all about “Pike & Broadway.” A lot of history in that area. Whenever you hear Broadway, you think about Sir Mix-A-Lot. The new generation is keeping the location in the scope of the rest of the world. Young duo Brothers From Another link up with Sol for this smooth record that’s […]

EP: Sol – Eyes Open

September 10th, 2013

“Waited 10 whole months for the beat to really drop,” Sol raps on the opening track of his Eyes Open EP. It’s a culmination of his journey around the world that took place for most of 2012. The records were written all over Earth and, with his upcoming headlining tour starting soon, was released today through […]

Sol Ft. Shayhan – Tomorrow

August 27th, 2013

While most rappers attribute the writing of their songs to their house, the studio or some other typical spot, Sol can’t say the same with “Tomorrow.” As he reflects on his experience of his worldwide trip, he crafted the song amongst three continents last year. That’s a creative way to do it. Pre-order Eyes Open […]

Sol is releasing his Eyes Open EP on September 10. The music was inspired by his recent trip around the world last year that opened him up to new experiences and new sounds. On the first single, “Jump In,” he rhymes about his love for hip-hop and how anybody in life should take a leap […]

The only reason why Sol isn’t in the top five this year is his around-the-world once in a lifetime trip that kept him occupied from music in the last year. Although, the point is made that, despite his absence, he continued to become a bigger name slowly and kept his fans entertained with all his […]

Sol is one of the only rappers who can go away on a trip around the world for a year and come back to a much bigger buzz. Granted, he only tossed out a couple records during that time period. That’s a sign. Sol is going to be a huge force in 2014. But as […]
