Dyme Def: Game Changers

I recently stumbled across Dyme Def. A Seattle-based hip-hop group with some serious talent and unique creativity. They entereed the game in 2006 and haven't looked back.  Consisting of three MCs (Brainstorm, S.E.V., Fearce Villan) and one DJ/producer (Bean One) they are not your ordinary hip-hop outfit.

Dyme Def's unconventional size gives them impressive vocal diversity

There aren't really many comparison that come to mind when listening to this group.  Perhaps one could draw comparisons to other Seattle-based groups like Boom Bap Project and Common Market. They are also similar to Living Legends; this makes sense as DJ Bean One worked with Jurassic 5 and Living Legends.  Dyme Def, nevertheless, is still difficult to categorize.

Below is what I've found and enjoyed from them thus far:

A take off on the Beatles' "Let it Be" this song packs more of a punch than the 70s hit.

These guys may no be tearing up Billboard's Top 20, but they've certainly made an impression on me.
