I know, I know, I know…we’ve been promising this album for almost a year now, but we really really mean it this time. We Get It In True – the full-length debut from Portland golden childs, TxE WILL be available for free download right here soon enough.
Making good on that promise, first thing we have to offer from the project is the first single, “Higher” – a longtime crowd favorite at live shows, released here for the first time in its full form w/ a lead verse from none other than Strong Arm Stead-ian, Phil The Agony & an assist from Illmaculate – the official 5th member of the 3-man TxE squad.
Produced by G_Force – the team’s one-man band, the synth-heavy, anthemic chugger is the perfect cannon for a live one from Phil -who shines here in rare form right from the song’s jump, sending a nice alley-oop to TOPE for the second verse & then a strong victory lap of a third from Epp. Add to that some shit-talking phoneticism from Ill on the hook, backed by some Big L and Phat Kat quotes cut up by 4th member DJ FlipFlop & there you have it – the bar for PRTLND has officially been raised
Now go ahead & talk it out.

Finally, after well over a year in the making – we are ready to present the world to one of my favorite groups, TxE – & their official debut album, We Get It In True.
Well… not quite yet – but it IS coming! & today, we let you in on the first sneak peak of the project.
Since combining forces in early 2010, TxE (pronounced “T And E”) – made up of MC’s Tope and Epp, & producer, G_Force (AKA Calvin Valentine) – all three solo acts in their own right, have come together to form one of the most well-rounded groups hip-hop has to offer right now. & through relentless live performances, collaborations & self-released projects, they’ve quickly worked their way to the forefront of the burgeoning PRTLND music scene – & with this first full-length project from the group, TxE hope to take that worldwide as well.
Shot last October (hence the Halloween get-ups in the live show), by wiz kid, Paulius Kontijevas, this EPK, “Day In The Life Of TxE,”
is meant to serve as an informal (re-)introduction to the group – showing the true friendship & casual camaraderie of its members in their everyday life, & how that translated into the studio when it came time to record the album.
Included in this Day is the group recording the track, “Nothing New” – one of the newer songs on WGIIT, which found G_ pulling out some makeshift bucket drums to give the track a more live feel, which then inspired Epp & Tope to write some of their more personal verses to date.
You can watch the full EPK below – & look out for much more from TxE & WGIIT coming very soon, including leaks, music videos & finally… the full album for free download.
