Hip-Hop album reviews provide a great way to extend the life of your album.
As an Indie artist you have to work a tad harder to get your album reviewed. I put together a comprehensive list of hip-hop blogs or YouTube personalities that MIGHT review your hip-hop album.
The key emphasis is on might. I found the sites that actual review Indie hip-hop are few and far between so I decided to focus on a few YouTube personalities.
I could have easily added Okayplayer, Pitchfork, Vibe, XXL, SPIN, etc yet I decided to focus on realistic opportunities. My comprehensive list of Hip-Hop Blogs will assist you if you are looking for blog coverage (for singles).
I decided to include YouTube Channels because of the ability to reach more people due to our mobile nature. I have been pondering the idea of reviewing material via YouTube or SoundCloud for about a year (I might revisit it next year haha). As an artist you have to think outside the box, a review from Dead End Hip Hop can possibly lead to more fans.
