Street Level Records Signs Seattle Rapper Mac Minati


23 October 2012 No Comment

Seattle based STREET LEVEL RECORDS—known to fans worldwide as an independent force in hardcore Hip-Hop—is proud to announce the signing of rapper/actor/comedian MAC MINATI, their first artist signing since SLR’s reactivation in 2011. Mac’s comedic style and sly street wit is a perfect fit for Street Level, one of the Northwest’s oldest and foremost indie Hip-Hop labels, whose catalog has been in high demand by lovers of quality street poetry since the 1990’s.

Formerly known as Mac Gamer, the rapper came up in the Rainier Beach neighborhood of Seattle’s notorious Southend, under the wings of Seattle street supergroup Lac of Respect. Now known as Mac Minati, he’s a force all his own, with a hardcore sound and streetwise vision for 2012 and beyond. This versatile artist also recently wrapped up filming on a pilot for a new FOX TV sitcom called “The Carter Family,” starring opposite of Nickelodeon teen star Ariana Grande.

On October 31st, just in time to scare all shook ones, Street Level Records will present Mac Minati’s street album, “Paranormal Mactivity,” which features guest appearances by Crooked I, Game, E-40, Birdman, 151 and more. Mac’s as-yet untitled next project, due out in January 2013, will feature high-powered production from platinum producer Kane Beatz, Cash Money producer I.N.F.O., Seattle Hip-Hop veteran D-Sane, as well as guest appearances from Young Jeezy, Crooked I, Freeway, Seattle notables Grynch, Neema and Wizdom alongside Mac’s own stand-alone rhymes. More news and music is coming from Mac and SLR—so stay tuned and get ready!

About Street Level Records

Street Level Records (SLR) is an independent Hip-Hop & urban record label founded in 1998 by owner and in-house producer/engineer Dave “D-Sane” Severance III. SLR has been a leader in the Northwest music scene since its beginnings and was the first NW Hip-Hop label to go online in 1999 with www.streetlevelrecords.com. SLR also boasts one of the largest catalogs in NW Hip-Hop with 27 full length albums and several mixtapes.

After releasing numerous critically acclaimed albums and dominating the Seattle area retail stores for many years, SLR went on a six year hiatus in 2005, so D-Sane could focus on his production and audio engineering company, Not 2 Sane Productions. SLR was re-launched in 2011 and is back to reclaim its spot at the forefront of NW music. Be on the lookout for much more music from SLR in 2013.
