Album Notes
What is the true essence of hip-hop? It\'s a culture. KRS said you live Hip-Hop! So, it\'s a way of life that many of us have lived since day one of it\'s inception into urban society.
Nolonger just in the South Bronx, where it all started, it would be hard to go anywhere in the world without seeing, hearing, or feeling it\'s impact.
Yes, there is even representation of the culture in lesser known places like Des Moines, IA where kids still have love and passion for rap. Bombers still have a passion about their craft. Breakdancers stay innovative in reintroducing old moves and creating new. DeeJays still dig for vinyl, or in some cases compact discs (blah), and still rock parties and crowds of all nationalities, staying on the cutting edge by breaking new artist and they\'re music...being gatekeepers of their own regions, but talented enough for mass appeal.
On this cd \"What\'s Hip-Hop?!\" I, Tess-1, continue to craft together great music from a creative mind. There are hidden gems throughout the 14 song disc intended for the listeners. With guest spots by frequent collaborators Smoov-G, Kamikaze Pilots, G-Know, and Fat Mat The Gluton. This cd should hold you down and get you ready to hear more from one of D.M.I.\'s (Des Moines, IA)own...always creating in the studio...forming a solid union and a valid movement!!! Love and Peace
