While New York seems to take most of the credit for creating the East Coast hip hop culture, neighboring city Washington, D.C. has actually made many contributions. In fact, graphic t-shirts, performing with a live band and many a slang word are trends that can be attributed to our nation’s capitol. Letting the world know that not many people can do it quit like they do, emcees Yung E, Mood Streetz and Dre Strong of Likeblood have released the city reppin’ single, Like Us. Over electric guitar-and-synthesizer production courtesy of fellow D.C. musicians Chucky Thompson and Endustreatz, the threesome provides plenty of reasons why their home city might shine a little brighter in the future. Their current mixtape project, WLBR: Likeblood Radio (Vol. 1), is available for download online.
