TxE MFNW Set at Hawthorne Theater 9.4

TxE MFNW Set at Hawthorne Theater 9.4

When it comes to PDX rap group TxE, I would hesitate to classify their tunes as rap due to its clear influence from old school hip hop. Samples from Biggie are no surprise in their music because it is focused on poignant lyrics with solid delivery. The grooves are mellow with traces of soul and are mixed together to uplift the beat into a danceable track. Most people do not correlate hip hop with Portland, but TxE (consisting of members Calvin, Epp, and Tope) can hold their own with some of the best in the country. By sharing stages with the likes of Lil Wayne and Macklemore they have proven that good verses can travel far and wide, especially if you know how to throw them down. TxE are taking part in MFNW at the Hawthorne Theater for a rappers showcase tonight. - Colin Hudson
