    Behind The Art: Erik King

    Behind The Art: Erik King

    Thank you for all the love I received on my second release ‘Ear’. I honestly didn’t think people would love it as much, considering how short it was but I was obviously proven wrong. This week I have a new release with my day one, Erik King. This guy stuck by my side during those Soundcloud days, my ups and downs, and back when I wasn’t shi- (you get the idea). He has watched me grow both personally and musically, and I have done the same and have supported his music and dreams from day one. The vocals from ‘Lost Souls’ was originally from his song called ‘Salmon Street’ but he allowed me to put my own twist to it. I hope you guys enjoy the release and also this read.

    How the Brooklyn Drill movement is NY's most unique contribution to rap

    How the Brooklyn Drill movement is NY's most unique contribution to rap

    Would it be crazy for me to say, out of all of New York’s contributions to rap — and trust me there’s A LOT of them — what I’m going to share is it most unique ever? Now keep in mind, what I said: Unique. Not greatest. Not the biggest. Heck, I didn’t even say most influential. All I plan on doing is explaining how a sub-genre within New York’s huge rap scene became its most important sound, during this rapidly-growing time in our culture.

    What Is Hip Hop ?

    What Is Hip Hop ?

    What is Hip-Hop? Throughout recent history, many scholars, philosophers, writers, and other prevalent scholars have attempted to define Hip Hop as well as what it means to be Hip-Hop. Google defines Hip-Hop as a “style of popular music of US black and Hispanic origin, featuring rap with an electronic backing”. Although, Google has provided this definition I believe that it is overly general and inaccurate to the roots of what create what we know as Hip-Hop. Through research and multiple interviews i have discovered that Hip Hop is more of a culture that cannot be accurately defined by one simple sentence. Hip-hop has many facets; it can be fashion, poetry, and or art, because to put it plainly, Hip Hop is heritage. It is all these things. In this essay, I will analyze and identify what exactly Hip Hop means as well as give an example of who best embodies the representation of what is means to be Hip-Hop.

    The Logistics of the Rap Crown

    The Logistics of the Rap Crown

    The rap crown is arguably the most desired accolade in music history. Since rap music became mainstream so has its top spot. Now that rap music is one of the most influential aspects of pop culture, it is more coveted than ever. It’s customary for every rapper to think that the top spot belongs to them, but it’s usually the general consensus that they need to put in some work before they can truly justify their place at the top. Rappers that fans often indicate as top tier and deserving of that spot include Eminem, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Biggie, Tupac, Lil Wayne, Nas and many others. Some people think that the crown is simply transferred from one rapper to another after a certain period of time, others think that it has to be earned and once it is acquired, someone better has to come along to take it.
