Hip-Hop has come a long way over the last two decades. From it’s dancable, rhythm-centric origins to gangster rap, hip-pop, and even ‘frat rap’, Hip-Hop has evolved to become as fragmented as rock with just as many genres and subgenres. We are very proud to be representing some incredibly talented hip-hop artists, all of whom have their own unique sound, style and vision of what ‘true’ hip-hop is – they run the spectrum for sure!
Each artist is available for interview and/ or review.
