Creation of a New Genre – Blog Hop?
Far too long sub-genres in Hip-Hop have been split apart like cliques in high school at lunchtime. There once was a time in the not so distant 90s where Hip-Hop of all flavors could rock the same venue, spit on the same remix, and the youth was the only demographic. The average rapper nowadays must answer to whether his music is Underground, Mainstream, Ringtone-ish, Auto-Tune-ish, Southern, Gangster, Hipster, etc, when all along they share a common bond. Southern California artist Curtiss King has coined this bond appropriately as Blog-Hop (blOg-hop) n.
Curtiss King describes Blog-Hop as the up to date approach to a music industry making a transition to an even more digital age. Blog-Hop is identified by it’s viral song circulation through the form of blog-sites, websites, and downloadable links. Considered the middle ground between all sub-genres of Hip Hop, Blog-Hop is also described as music colossal enough to bring Hip Hop fans together and sound dope even on crappy computer speakers. And better believe Curtiss King has the credentials to represent it right.
Hailing out of Carson California, Rapper/Singer/Producer Curtiss King has pioneered a unique sound with Blog-Hop. Sprinkle in the pot a blend of fresh song concepts, a BEASTLY delivery, a flow smoother than suede on ice, and addictive choruses over arpeggio synthesizers, big drums, and samples from just about any genre…and you’ve got a Curtiss King serving of Blog-Hop.
But don’t get it twisted, Blog-Hop is not a ploy for Curtiss King to say he pioneered something. This is rather his attempt to bring that 90’s atmosphere of togetherness back to modern day Hip-Hop, and it’s now even broader audience.
And who better than Curtiss to make that happen? From a multicultural background himself, Curtiss King has a reputation of rocking out with just about any and everybody from all walks of life.
He’s been blessed to perform at numerous Top 40 playing venues in Hollywood, Cultural Festivals holding 10,000+, House Parties, Birthday Parties, and numerous college campuses…As well as Keg Parties 😉 …just to name a few.
With a grassroots movement Curtiss King has just about plastered his name everywhere. Through his production company he’s been able to produce for Up and Comers such as Ab-Soul, Young Rook,
Kandi Cole, Dana La Rock, Reign Major, & J-Smooth. Through his own negotiations he has also been able to get his music placed on TV with corporate giants such as MTV2, FUSE TV, and VANS inc.
Blog-Hop is officially the movement to move with.
Curtiss King is the ambassador and everyone is invited.
Listen 2 it, Love it, Blog It.
