THE INDIE HIP-HOP SCENE

Who needs to sign to a label when the indie hip-hop scene is flourishing? You no longer need radio stations to spin your records thanks to the Internet, and the powerful force we all know as social media. From Chance The Rapper to Kevin Gates and back to Hopsin independent artist are making a killing! Numbers don't lie from their fans to the dollars signs indie artist are banking! A lot these indie artist aren't just popular garbage, their here for a reason. They got skills and talent not to mention a shit load of loyal fans.

I wonder what state has the most independent artist? Texas? New York? Cali? I have no idea but what I do know is that there is a lot! Ever been to SXSW show up with an empty backpack and end up leaving with a full bag of CDs and demos. No lie, so many artist out their trying to get heard and signed. It gets kind of crazy out there, some say its starting to feel like theirs more artist out there promoting than their is fans. If you ain't never checked it out give it a try you make like it, you might run into a drunk Snow Tha Product yelling at pedestrians "The Baby Dinosaur" yea it gets weird.

Anyways once again thanks to the Internet, sites like YouTube, band-camp, sound-cloud, Twitter, blogs, and everything in between has made it easy and simple for an artist with a small budget to share their music to the whole world within seconds! Just like that target kid who became famous because of Twitter fanatics, rappers can go viral just like that! Ever heard of JJ Fish, or J2? I honestly think the whole XXL freshmen class of 2014 were all internet sensations. For real! I ain't never heard but one or two of them on that list till then. I ain't hating I'm just trying to point out that the Internet has indie artist set up pretty good. The underground ain't so bad like I said numbers don't! SPM an underground legend was making over 400k a month way before tools like FB and Twitter were around. That was till he got locked up. Free SPM! The underground is alive and well, with plenty of good artist around.

If you only fuck with mainstream artist I want to encourage you to checkout some of your local artist. You might like what you hear and become a fan. Support local talent! Support the underground! We right here! The underground ain't going no where son!
