Keep in Mind that I'm a Lover of Music!! My 1st Love is & will always be Hip Hop but I fell that I'm fortunate enough to live in a City where there is Influence & Inspiration around every corner. This list comes from a Genuine place and is not designed to slight anyone. Nor is this list the STANDARD for which all other shall aspire to. I just want to introduce My Fans to Artists that keep Me going when I feel like this Music Shit ain't for ME any longer. We don't have the conversation anymore in this Town and I wanna hear what You think. Did I leave anyone out? Was there someone(s) that should've been included? I feel that DJ's in this City need to play more of Our Local Indie Artists than they do. I also feel that We as Artists need to make Music that Club & Radio DJ's will want to play. We're about to begin a NEW DECADE and if we all don't step Up we're gonna get left behind!! See You guys in the New Decade and as always #FOLLOWTHEHAT!!
