HAPPY 44TH BIRTHDAY HIP HOP – Google Doodle (VIDEO) ft. FAB 5 FREDDY via @lisafordblog

Google and the legendary Hip Hop artist, FAB 5 FREDDY, partnered up for an awesome Google Doodle experience. The “44th” birth date of of Hip-Hop stems from a fateful Bronx back-to-school party in August 1973. I’m happy to see that the genre and culture is celebrated by an American conglomerate such as Google and that video contains a small history lesson of how this internationally influential artform was conceived from “scratch”.

VIGALANTY: From MIAMI to the Top of the Charts

As the line between independent and mainstream music continues to blur with the coming of each new generation, Hip Hop purists with underground loyalty keep searching for the next rapper to surface with an allegiance to the realness. Enter VIGALANTY, a talented, dynamic, influential independent artist and lyricist from Miami, Florida, with serious mic skills, a mature ear, and new-school sensibility.

VIGALANTY’s story is not one of the average American rapper. Unlike most new rap stars, he is humbled, composed, mature, and palpably aware of how far he came within the ever-changing music industry. His plight to reach the top of the charts might be the story of how Hip Hop got real for independent artists in South Florida in 2016 as Vigalanty emerges from the sideline taking all the punches and blows it takes to survive.
