Getting into the hip-hop arena within an almost-forgotten trend, the MC-and-the-DJ label team Common Market place continues to be pegged as leaders of Seattle’s new-school rap movement. MC RA Scion and DJ Sabzi have obtained rave testimonials locally, getting in the Seattle Moments’ artists-to-watch list in 2006, showing up on leading cover of Audio Seattle magazine’s Sept 2006 concern, and acquiring the personal endorsement of hip-hop pioneer KRS-One as a fantastic up-and-coming group. Sabzi, a classically educated pianist and person in Seattle rap group Blue Scholars, and RA Scion found meet one another in 2004 for their similar ambitions to create Seattle a hotbed for hip-hop and their identical values as worshipers from the Baha’i Beliefs. After Sabzi lent creation help RA Scion’s single album, Live and find out, the two shaped Common Marketplace in 2005. Their self-titled debut record was initially released in 2005 but released nationally in early 2006.
