‘Da’ What is Hip Hop? – Avant-Garde [Audio]

Posted on July 22, 2013 by


Avant-Garde is one of the great discoveries from my inbox.  I hadn’t heard of him before I received his submission but I could hear a high level of talent combined with a lot of potential as soon as I pressed play.  He recently linked up with some other underground, impressive emcees to form a collective known as OGTOMK and they put out a compilation that you can download here.  He takes his craft very seriously and works hard; I am sure that he will continue to improve and reach more and more ears as time goes on.  His hard work translated to this week’s ‘Da’ What is Hip Hop? where Avant-Garde sat down to discuss what hip hop means to him for over 20 minutes of high quality anecdotes, insights and thoughtfulness.  In addition to the release of this post, AG has also dropped his new solo mixtape “2 Sides of the Same”.  Take some time to hear what hip hop means to Avant-Garde and his region! And make sure to catch up on some of his old and new music!
