The Ultimate Hip-Hop Blog Directory

This post was inspired by the 6 Must Read International Hip-Hop Blogs post that I put together earlier this month.

Originally I put together this list because I felt like artists were relying on a handful of hip-hop blogs. Putting together this list allowed me to research various hip-hop blogs (indie and mainstream hip hop blogs). This is an on-going post and the goal revolves around providing a Hip-Hop Blog directory.

As an artist I know how hard it is to market your music. Hip-hop blogs were created to ease this process.

I am a big advocate of relationship building and I believe that it is beneficial to communicate with a handful of sites and establish rapport with them (network).

This post will examine hip-hop blogs that accept music submissions. These hip-hop blogs are operated by people (not robots haha) that will listen to your music and offer feedback based on your submission (given the site of course).

Now of course your chances of being posted will increase if you establish a relationship with the bloggers/website. It would also be beneficial if you read 5 Tips for Getting More Blog Coverage.

Artists we need to be realistic in our approach; build the relationship first then watch the fruit of your work grow!

Your music will at least be heard (given that the submission fits the site). The submission information can be found on each website. (And now the blogs are in alphabetical order, thanks to advice from Josh!).

This list will be updated often (so please check back). Good Luck!

EXTRA: You can track who is posting your music by using Google search. All you have to do is type in an artist that you mirror (most likely a recent project) into Google Search. Then you can find out what blogs are posting your music. I added a video that I recorded last September to illustrate the point. Please let me know if it is beneficial.

Also check out The Ultimate Online Radio Station & Podcast Directory.

Take the time to get to know the people that operate these blogs/websites and I guarantee that your coverage on the blogosphere will increase.

The key is to present good material and network. Remember that coverage on blogs is good. Develop relationships and turn those music posts to interviews, reviews, and even sponsorship opportunities.

You may not get posted on all of these sites yet I can GUARANTEE that you will be covered by at least one hip-hop blog.

If you find this post helpful let me know by leaving a comment or sharing this post via Twitter, Facebook, Google +, email, and other social media sites.

If this list is missing any sites please drop a link in the comment section and I will add it to the list!
