September 23, 2013 by


Born and raised in “The City of Hate”, Longshot and hip hop go way back.  Currently signed with legendary indie label Rhymesayers, he has relocated to Minneapolis but hasn’t lost any of his Chi-Town flavor.  A very talented emcee with smooth lyrics and a flawless delivery, his written prose is just as good.  Although he […]

‘Da’ What is Hip Hop? – Dumi Right [Editorial]

August 26, 2013 by

[…]

Atlanta. Ga emcee Skinny-C’s got something to say! Repping the dirty South and shedding light on hip hop’s path there, he takes us through the customs and beliefs of a Southern rapper.
