#12For12 - The Boston Hip-Hop Unity Movement
I’m not even going to come on here and lie. I’m not going to pretend like I haven’t been slacking on the actual blog. I’d never sit here and lie to your face. YOU - the reader - you’re the reason why The Collab Projekt does everything we do.
Recently, we haven’t been providing you with the daily updates on new music anymore because honestly, we know that even though you rock with us for our hip-hop updates, we’re not your top choice when it comes to “the newest releases in hip-hop”, but we stay alive because we are still ONE of your choices. We’ve got a bunch of followers on many different mediums, and one thing we’ve gathered from those who have provided feedback - T.C.P. knows a bunch of hidden gems that people need to be put on to.
I’m writing this post because as the Founder of The Collab Projekt, I’d never want you think that we forgot about you. We haven’t. Even though we haven’t been posting hip-hop, our team has been out and about living it. From my trip to California for Paid Dues and meeting with my favorite up-and-coming rapper from L.A., Radio; to our involvement with The Fresh Heir and Boston’s buzzing hip-hop scene, we’ve been creating opportunities and experiences for ourselves and our followers.
As promised, The Collab Projekt will continue to put you on to artists you may have never heard of. And to enhance the reading experience for you, I am pushing the writers to go out and maximize their living experiences in the topics they want to cover.
The above photoset was created during our #12For12 Launch Event. For those who don’t know, for months now, The Collab Projekt and The Fresh Heir have been meeting and organizing a unity project intended to bring together the Boston hip-hop scene and create a web of support. We’ve chosen twelve artists from the city of Boston who are well-developed and dedicated to a career in music and we will be working with these twelve artists throughout the summer to create opportunities for everyone in this city - everyone who is interested in being involved in the exposure of Boston’s hip-hop scene.
This post is intended to apologize and explain our lack of posts lately; fill our followers in on #12For12; and get you guys ready for a nice 15-minute long video that will be dropping this week, a video that will definitely open your eyes and attract attention to the city of Boston.
Thank you all for continuing to rock with us. Honestly, we do this for YOU.
