Date : Friday - May 13, 2005 Official PR Release -- (ArriveNet - May 13, 2005) -- A new web site dedicated to independent rap, hip-hop and spoken word artists is now up and running. The site focuses on independent artists and news related to the independent artists and also offers ''help'' for those artist who are seeking exposure.

The site says “There are many good artists out today and many do not get the recognition they deserve or you never hear of them because they are not signed to a major.”

It seems that the major record labels are not really looking for artists out side of the ‘mainstream’. The site adds “More and more we are being sold the same artists with the same beats and we all know there is more of a ‘pool’ of artists than what the mainstream and the major’s are trying to force feed us.”

With the ‘face’ of hip-hop culture changing the site says: “Hip-Hop is changing, but the faces seem to be the same. True Hip-Hop is being lost to the corporations and it is becoming a money game, and the messages that we need to be hearing are censored and denied to be put on wax.”

“Most of us know that the ‘underground’ hip-hop music is a lot ‘fresher’ than much of the major stuff out now. We hope to provide a place to give exposure to not only hip-hop and rap artists but also spoken word artist”; “Remember that there is more music out there than what we are being sold by the majors and with stiff competition, the artists who are signed to the majors will have to step up their game to keep up with what most of us already know is out here”. the site admin. adds.
