Izm White (aka Hayden Laybourn) has been immersed in the local hip-hop scene since the mid-'90s, when he first started heading down from the Western Slope to Denver to compete in MC battles and attend shows. During that time, he's had some ups and downs, including releasing multiple albums, taking trips to Europe and doing a stint in prison. Through it all, Izm has continued to build his name and has grown wise in the game, which has changed dramatically over the past two decades.

Thomas tha Franchise

Since 4/20's this weekend, we would be remiss if we didn't give you some great new local jams to smoke to. Nothing's better than hip-hop whilst being blitzed into another realm of consciousness. And we're representing all styles today: SP Double for the purists (though he gets a little rowdy on this one), Sole for bone-dry intellectuals, Anxious for that technical spitfire and Thomas tha Franchise for you party people. Enjoy.
