Cool Nutz – Artist
Radio host of the Breakout Show on KXJM JAM'N 107.5 & Jus Family Records
Cool Nutz is most known for his involvement and promotion of the Portland, OR and San Francisco Bay Area hip-hop scene. He co-founded Jus Family Records in 1992 with Bosko Kante. His musical style originally used primarily G-funk synthesizer elements but has evolved to the addition of vocal and instrumental samples in his tracks.
In 1995, Scott co-founded the Portland Oregon Hip-Hop (POH-Hop) Festival. He has worked very hard to create and maintain the hip-hop scene in Portland and has worked with many rappers from the bay area, most notably "E-40" and "Yukmouth." In 1997, he signed the group G-Ism, made up of fellow Portland rappers Ray Ray and Young Randall to his label, Jus Family Records. They released their debut album, "On a Mission" in 1998, under Jus Family Records. G-Ism disbanded in 2001 following the tragic and untimely passing of Young Randall.
