"Hartford Hip-Hop"

Excerpt from the article in the Hartford Advocate d.08/16-22/07

Hartford Hip-Hop
A whole range of MCs labor away at making a name for Central Connecticut's hip-hop scene.

“One MC making an undeniable buzz is Oscar Black, who also serves as co-host to the open mic. Black said he has been rhyming for about ten years and cites Big Daddy Kane, Biz Markie, Nas, Jay-Z and 50 Cent as influences. With a nice, easy flow spread over bass-heavy beats on three mixed CDs, Get Gwap Vol. 1, Drops and Remixes, and the soon-to-be-released Get Gwap Vol. 2, Black plans to rope in the major record labels to the Hart-beat.
“I want to start my career here in Hartford,” he said. “I want people to come here, because I would be taken more serious as an artist if they came to me as opposed to me going to them.”
