My favorite music forum just went down. Anyone's got any recommendations of sites/blogs to follow to stay up to date? I mostly listen pop/rock/folk/electronic, basically the kind of stuff being posted in this thread.
Maybe we could keep a list of sites/blogs? I'll try to get it rolling...
Posted the awesome "Check on me" in the 2012 thread, pretty excited for this, set to come out January 23rd:
Southern hip-hop is indeed a truly resonating sound. The accent, slang, and on record ego of down south artists separates their craft from others. King personifies the southern culture of the rap game. With an infectious voice and recognizable sound, King is a true industry vet with the hunger of a rookie. Having been signed to Def Jam in 2006, King is bringing an undeniable rawness that will propel him back to the plateau for which he once achieved. While the South has often been criticized for lack of lyrical content, the Check On Me rhymer is masterfully incorporating catchy hooks and melodies, with thought-provoking punch-lines and wordplay. His music offers samples from everything that makes the south unique, with the diversity and multi-faceted nature that connects with all regions. King is hip-hop. King is the south. King is the embodiment of what the industry, along with the underground, has grown to expect and desire from that specific region. With a strong reume’, following, and industry sense, King is putting himself back on the map. As he drops new singles and gears up for his 2013 release of “Kush And Yellow Diamondz” the MAG spitter is sticking true to the connotation of his alias and aiming for the hip-hop throne of the south.
