Getting noticed in the highly competitive hip-hop industry is an uphill journey for most independent artists who do not have the support and resources of big label companies. This is a reality of multiple gifted artists then and now who do not have the financial means to launch their music on powerful platforms. Hip Hop Indie Music is attempting to change this plight for all independent music artists who dream of sharing their music with the rest of the world through its online platform. Giving all artists an equal opportunity to be noticed and known for their artistry is a good start.
The platform was established in 2017 by three friends, Paul Mauricette, Cordaryll Monroe, and Joshua Emmanuel. All three have a deep passion for music and an innate desire to make a lasting difference in the music industry in order to make room for all kinds of artists from different walks of life. They agreed to create a website that would commit to being community-friendly. They also chose to do it in a blog format, giving their audiences helpful updates about the latest events, artists, and songs happening in the hip-hop and R&B worlds. Finally, there was an effective and quick way for independent artists to get noticed and share their songs at the same time.
Hip Hop Indie Music is a haven for some of the country’s emerging and most promising artists of this generation. It showcases vast talents, both men and women, of different ages. From singles to mixtapes, videos, and EPs, the platform is overflowing with genuine and extraordinary talents.
Another unique attribute of the company, aside from looking after the welfare of artists in the platform, is its commitment to give back to the community whenever they can. The team sends basic items to Haiti to help in impacting the lives of so many underprivileged individuals, including food, clothes, bikes, and toys for children.
Hip Hop Indie Music is a platform that hopes to unite like-minded individuals towards a common goal – to have access to original music creations. It is for everyone who loves music and understands the pains the artists go through to write, produce, and release their songs. While hip-hop is one of the most popular genres today, it can also be the most frustrating experience for a new artist who has no idea how to navigate around the competitive industry.
Knowing the many new artists mostly start from scratch, the team is always open to working around an artist’s budget. “We know how hard it is to be in the music industry with low funds. So we try to work with everyone as much as we can. We care more about making a difference for the youth, and we want to show the youth that they can overcome everything,” the management explained.
The company is also very active on social media, specifically Instagram, where they give their artists additional exposure. The social media team of Hip Hop Indie Music publishes artists’ song covers, album covers, music videos, songs, and even teasers of their upcoming projects. Thanks to its passion and openness to help independent artists, more young singers and rappers can be encouraged to pursue their dreams and share their gifts with the rest of the world.
