Blue Scholars

Side by side with companion Seattle-based rap groups Common Market and Boom Bap Project, the Blue Scholars led the charge in proclaiming the Pacific Northwest as a breeding ground for "true school" hip-hop. Perceiving themselves as blue-collar intellectuals, DJ/producer Sabzi (born Alexei Saba Mohajerjasbi) and MC Geologic (born George Quibuyen) used their music as a vehicle to promote their socially conscious objectives and to build a hip-hop scene in Seattle, WA, and its surroundings. The two first met on the University of Washington campus as students in 1999, but formed the group in early 2002. They bonded more strongly as a formidable duo during the course of doing numerous live shows. Avoiding the bureaucratic red tape of record labels, they took the D.I.Y. approach and self-pressed their debut LP, Blue Scholars, in early 2004. Sabzi drew on his Persian/Iranian heritage, classical piano training, and affinity for jazz to compose light and breezy beats to complement Geologic's enlightening rhymes. The album's widespread reception exponentially increased their demand for live shows and performances, something the progressive duo didn't anticipate. They also didn't expect the Seattle Weekly to name it Album of the Year, which helped push the album to be picked up for national and international distribution in 2005. Instead of recoiling from the spotlight and the local fame, Geologic and Sabzi were bent on cultivating a movement. Sabzi teamed up with another former student of UW, RA Scion, to form Common Market in 2005. In summer 2006, they established the independent imprint and multimedia company, Mass Line Media, with MC Gabriel Teodros (of Abyssinian Creole). ~ Cyril Cordor, Rovi

Blue Scholars~! 206! Seatown baby. I always thought they were Macklemore's role model because they both performed at the same shows and they're so damn real and so damn good.
Stream KEXP and listen to NW Hip Hop.

These guys keep representing the 206 and coming up with both intelligent and chill songs with great production!

The best rap group to come out of Seattle in ten years besides Macklemore. If you are not listening, you are missing out.

Free thought is repressed by the white goated man who wants you, positivity lives in an empty cardboard box on the broken steps of capitol hill. Now that's said, this is definitely an amazing group of guys with a greater capacity of intellectual talent.

Ordinary Guys is a great song. Never heard of these guys. Thanks Pandora.

Wow. Songs singing about U.S. foreign policy and Americans as ignorant, bloodthirsty , the only culture that (apparently) celebrates the martial aspects of its history, and, of course, a country that wages war for oil. Pro tip, guys: Anyone who is telling you that the U.S. is fighting pretty well anywhere for oil and so it can quench its thirst for oil is not in any way, shape or form an actual scholar - blue-collar or otherwise. It makes for good Newsweek-lev e l political analysis, but, then

Saw these guys live in Seattle, great show and the openers were great too. Support these guys and other underground ARTISTS like them, keep real rap alive and support the hip hop culture positively. Mad respect.

The lyrics and flow really caught my attention. I will be following up to find out more about these guys, very opposite of what I am used to hearing from the west coast. Pleasantly so

a lot of their appeal for me is in Sabzi's beats, super jazzy and catchy. Would like to hear a Sabzi solo album maybe with a bunch of different MC's, including Geologic.
