The Hood Hippie has been growing. Thanks to everyone that has been supporting this vision and see the true potential that we have right here in Independent Artists. When I first started writing I never thought that anyone would grasp the concept I was trying to create; I think this was due to the fact that I had seen so many great things in Jackson fizzle out due to lack of local support. However, since I began chronicling the indie scene last match, The Hood Hippie has reached almost 20,000 views.
I was unsure if this idea could really take hold in Jackson; but the growing artistic community of the city was just too amazing to let go by unnoticed by the masses (or at least a potential new fan). I decided to try and find the best artists working in the city in various mediums and connect with them. My hope is to give these artists a platform to display their work to the world. I want to reassure artists that there talents do not go unrecognized. I see what you’re building with your grind and I support it to the fullest.
The Hood Hippie will be updating our website very soon! We will also have a new posting schedule and new recurring features in our weekly updates. We will have more interviews with artists working in the rising independent scene and we will have a larger variety of content including: mixtape reviews, features, articles, opinions, music videos, web shows, vlogs, concert footage and much more.
We are also preparing to launch something else that is going to be a major asset to the independent culture. I don’t wanna say to much but check back in the coming weeks to find out what the next major move is going to be.
With that being said, The Hood Hippie is taking a hiatus from posting on our current website as we transition to a new home. Thank you all for your patience, we assure you we’ll be back better than ever before.
