Never before has anyone held the title of “Tight 32 Champion” as long as Naj Murph. Each month since January 2018, Naj has been entering the Tight 32 Contest declaring his spot on the throne. The combination of his New York attitude and high-caliber bars definitely make for entertaining and engaging music.
The rise of social media broke down a lot of barriers to entry of the music industry. No longer are people waiting around for that once in a lifetime opportunity, and no longer do record labels make all the calls. Fortunately, this allows for exposure to more artists, and more specifically, female artists. I decided to create a playlist showcasing the ladies. The Female Element is a playlist highlighting women at different levels in their musical career, as well as showing appreciation for their talent.
This week I took the time to talk with the man behind the world famous Mic Club, DRES Tha BEATnik. A powerhouse of all things hip-hop, DRES and I discuss exactly how Mic Club goes down and how to prove yourself on stage. Keep reading to find out what DRES has to say about survival as a freestyler and how to step up to the plate and be the best.
