Silas Blak

Silas Blak is the definition of a local hiphop veteran. From appearing on both of the definitive mid-‘90s Seattle compilations “Do the Math” (with a verse on the title track posse cut) and “14 Fathoms Deep” (with Blind Council), releasing low-key classic “Soul Liquor” with Silent Lambs Project and solo effort “1986”, and his current work with soul/rap fusion group Black Stax, his contributions to the city’s hiphop community span decades.

Seattle veteran MC Silas Blak has a lengthy and established reputation in Seattle as one of the most intricate rappers in the area. Blak is confident touching on a variety of complex issues, such as his own philosophies and political views, all the while taking listeners down an often convoluted journey of verbal constructions. As a member of Black Stax, Blak has an ongoing and long history with Seattle music, formerly of Blind Council and Silent Lambs Project, and as a soloist.

More recently, he released a string of singles as part of his #BlakFriday series, which were collected and released as #BlakFriday: The Mixtape over the summer of 2015. This mixtape builds on his style, with producer Kjell Nelson behind the boards to provide the gritty soundscape. 

His first album with Cabin Games, Editorials: (wartunes), was released in the fall of 2015, again featuring production by Kjell Nelson.
