As an independent Hip Hop artist, I've learned that building relationships and developing a rapport with different people is priceless. Aside from talent, if you're trying to "come up" on your own, you still need people in your corner per se. Anyways, all I'm trying to say is that no matter what your product is, it won't go anywhere without some sort of marketing. I'm not an expert but I know what I'm talking about at this point. With that said, my interview with HASHTAGHIPHOP is up! HASHTAGHIPHOP is an East Coast, Tumblr-based blog that promotes up and coming, serious Hip Hop/Rap artists from around the world. I personally follow them because the blog is ran by artists as well. They listen to the music that artists submit, there is no charge to get posted , and most importantly they build a relationship with you to continue networking together. Special shouts out to my friend Gio Martin, a crazy talented MC who is making waves in the New Jersey and New York City area, and also one of the owners of HASHTAGHIPHOP.
