What was Reigncraft?
Reigncraft was a series of eight compilation albums that were executive produced and released throughout the mid-2000s by a Seattle Hip-Hop enthusiast named Ken Denim (KNDNM). Ken networked with local artists, producers, and studios, gathering music to feature on his compilations, which were used as promotional tools for the artists, and overall to help artists work together to share each other’s music and progress the music scene as a whole. Originally, the idea was to release a new volume every season (four times a year), which was an ambitious goal, but there were never more than two CDs released in a calendar year, and the compilations were eventually abandoned in 2009 after the 8th release. There were never more than 1,000 CDs pressed up for each volume, so these are definitely rare and hard to find!
