Portland's hip hop scene is definitely still in it's infancy as a whole because I think how young the city is compared to the rest of the country. However, that doesn't mean the talent here is in their infancy. Cats like Othello (of Lightheaded) and Ohmega Watts have been holding it down for years with some amazing artistry to their work. There is also a surge of "live-band" hip-hop groups or groups to have integrated hip-hop into their music, like The Manimals.
The indie-rock scene here is striving for sure, the PNW has always had a more dominate position for that scene of music, which is great. It doesn't mean that's all there is and that anyone has to diss on it because it's popular, I saw use it as a spring board to prove something here in the NW and Portland in particular.
