Buffalo’s Hip Hop scene is coming into its own these days. There appears to be good news around every corner, as artist after artist is being recognized on much larger levels. A number of these artists have even managed to attract the attention of some out of town bigwigs.
With recent additions from Buffalo to major labels like Quadir Lateef to Ruff Riders Entertainment and Westside Gunn and Conways’ (Griselda Records) signing to Shady Records by Eminem himself, Buffalo will see its first big Hip Hop acts on a bigger stage.
Thanks to the ongoing successes of major local Hip Hop events such as Battle@Buffalo (Verve/New Era), Hip Hop brunches, and plenty of open mic nights, Hip Hop artists have been able to get the exposure that they have been looking for, for the first time ever.
The Dopeness Project – Be the Change. Be the Light. Be Dope.
