Cool Nutz

Growing up in Northeast Portland, OR, Terrance Scott pka Cool Nutz always kept his eyes on the prize. Hip-Hop culture had always played a huge role in his life, but at no point did he think that Hip-Hop and business would mix to put food on the table. Using Run DMC’s “Rock Box” as his initial inspiration, Cool Nutz teamed up with childhood friend Bosco Kante to start their pursuit of the proverbial dream.

From the early days in the basement studio, to tours of Europe, Cool Nutz has represented Portland Hip-Hop not only locally, but has carried the flag for The City of Roses on a global level.

From the vocal booth to the boardroom, Cool Nutz and Bosko went from aspiring artist and producer to the heads of independent powerhouse record label Jus Family Records. Using Jus Family Records as the outlet to release albums from Cool Nutz, it was also the vehicle to release titles from a roster made up of G-Ism, Maniac Lok, Izaya, Luni Coleone & Cool Nutz, D.B.A., and Kenny Mack.

With 11 critically acclaimed solo albums under his belt: Dis Bros. Nutz(1993), Harsh Game For The People(1995), Speakin Upon A Million(1997), Verbal Porn(1999), Collabos(2001), Every Single Day(2007), King Cool Nutz(2007), The Miracle(2008), Incredible(2009), The Cook Up(2010), Portland(2012), Bars(2013), and #BRUH(2015), Cool Nutz has stood up to the test of time, and is the blueprint of longevity and relev
ance from a truly independent perspective.
