In all things deemed "typical Portland," a slew of our news outlets, including KGW and Willamette Week, have covered local rap artist Moshow over the past couple days. Setting aside Moshow's ability to flow at the drop of a hat, his particularly adorable schtick is the predominant facet of his viral appeal. Winning the most clever approach to music ever, Moshow is Portland's feminist cat rapper. Just let that sink in for a minute.
Yes, a feminist cat rapper. Those three words could not be more Portland once they're put all together. He climbed the viral ladder quickly on his Instagram, posting clips of himself spitting that fire with his main ladies, three Sphynx kitties named Sushi, MegaMam and Tali, along with cat memes and pictures of other cat lovers. He says he identifies with the hairless beauties. "They kind of remind me of myself. I'm kind of a human Sphynx," he told KGW, also stating how much he loves "crazy cat ladies."
Moshow supports cat lovers of all varieties, but shouts out men specifically with his "Men Love Cats Monday" theme on his Instagram. "I want guys to man up and show your love for cats," he says.
Since our gloomy town reigns when it comes to cat owning residents, I imagine most of you will enjoy his YouTube channel.
