It’s a good day for Hip Hop, and an even better day for NC after coming off of a weekend of
new releases from J Cole, Phonte and 9th Wonder. The “Bull City” has a lot to talk about
these days, knowing that the whole world has it’s eye on North Carolina for its raw lyrics
and driven, rich, ear tickling beats that have the entire Hip Hop community buzzing. The
releases of “Cole World: The Sideline Story”, “Charity Starts At Home” and “The Wonder
Years” usher in Fall like a cool breeze and offers some of the best music to date…period.
Each album has notable appearances from other North Carolina natives such as Big Remo,
Median, Rapsody, HaLo, King Mez and Carlitta Durand. As well as other industry
favorites such as Jay-Z, Elzhi, Pharoahe Monch, Raekwon, Masta Killa, Drake, Mac Miller,
Big K.R.I.T., Missy Elliot, Trey Songz and Eric Roberson. The entire music industry, as
well as the world at large is looking at North Carolina as being a source of REAL Hip Hop
and True Soul Music. It’s definitely not your typical Southern sound in the
Raleigh/Durham North Carolina area. Take note world, NC got next!!!! Let’s Go!!!!!!
