The New Rap Language panel will include discussion and commentary surrounding the importance of hip hop blogs in urban music media, including an in-depth discussion answering the question: Are hip hop blogs/websites having a larger impact on the urban music industry than labels for today’s artists? This panel will be moderated by Beats & Ballads Editor-in-Chief, Tia Danae. The event is free and open to the public. So if you’re in the area or thinking about being the area, come check us out.
I rarely leave my crib unless it’s to run errands, DJ an event, see my niece or the more-frequent-than-occasional alcohol run, and those times I’m usually just keeping to myself the entire time. Having to actually be put on the spot is a rarity, so I honestly have no idea what I’m going to say at this event or what exactly is going to happen. April 16th should prove interesting. Hope to see you all there.
