Hip hop review

Greetings!!!  Summer is currently underway and there is a plethora of events happening.  From the Gamecock Baseball & countless festivals to various high school graduations & and some ‘not to be missed’ concerts; all are right here in Columbia, HAPPENING NOW!!!  Much love to Columbia City Paper for supporting the independent and progressive thinkers, movers, and shakers throughout Columbia and surrounding areas.  Since this is summer, here is a quick list of some new treats to fill your favorite sound device (there are so many to choose from).  Let’s get it!!!



Music is synonymous with the heartbeat of the world.  Originating as ideas and spreading globally like weather, music molds and shapes all who come in contact with it and even how this world spins.  Gospel, Classical, Reggae, Blues, Jazz, Disco, Zydeco, Folk, Country, Electronic, Hip Hop, and even Rock music can all directly trace their beginnings to someone’s need to express themselves.  Here are some great albums (artist & title) to add to our ever growing collection (in no particular order)…
