So you want to write for Dead End Hip Hop? Dead End Hip Hop is the home of hundreds of thousands of hip-hop fans all over the world, engaging in discussion of what some consider to be the most important genre in music…hip-hop. Along with our YouTube channel, we also have a Writer’s division, that posts music from artists and keeps the conversation going in a written format.
Our current writers exude a knowledge of hip-hop and are able to keep up with trends inside and outside the mainstream realm of music. We’re not only keeping up with the Kendricks, the Drakes and Chances of the world, but we’re also digging deeper and looking at the Aesop Rock and the MF Dooms of the world.
Moreover we’re discussing how hip-hop impacts our world and visa versa, it’s not just about the music, but the impact the music has on us and the world around us.
