The Rebirth of Hip-Hop in Florida
Florida has been know for its underground booty shaking, bass knocking music throughout the years. Like 2 Live Crew, Magic Mike, and so on an so on. None of them were really credited for their contribution to the hard core hip-hop game. The times are changing, and Florida is growing strong. People are putting real feeling back into their music, which to me is true hip-hop. Hip-hop is about stating your thoughts about society, and what’s going on in your hood and sharing them with the world, ya know, putting lyrics together like a surgeon. Only a few have accomplished this, but this has helped bring Florida’s underground hip-hop to the forefront. The first person that comes to mine is Trick Daddy; his lyrical skills are real because he’s true to what he says and what he feels. To the streets of Florida he is a pioneer. The dirty south is alive with talent and the world is starting to take notice. I think we can, no, I know that we can showcase artist that are lyrically deep and just as talented as the well known artists out there from the underground to the mainstream market of the hip-hop business. Now it’s time in 2006 too shine even brighter, and show the other reason that we are the sunshine state.
One of the many artist that’s coming to you from Central Florida, is a young man by the name Swish Baxter. His styles reflects the true pioneers like Public Enemy, LL cool J, KRS one, Nas, JayZ, Trick Daddy, and 2PAC, and just like some of the great Legends. I believe Swish will keep real hip-hop going. So check him out at MySPACE.COM/SWISHBAX or email me Doc of The Kountie Boyz at myspace.com/shadowentourage . Signing off from swamp headquarters, your man, swamp monster. Peace!!!
