Web Exclusive: Hip-Hop is Here to Stay by Alex Bieler
William Powell

As you might have seen, there's this really great new cover story about the renaissance of Erie's hip-hop scene. However, unless you decided to read the story aloud, you might not have really heard the scene quite yet.

Given the amount of talented local MCs, we thought that it would be quite nice of us to nudge you in the right direction. That being typed, we provide you with a litter of links, providing both Reverbnation and Soundcloud pages, as well as videos. Think of it as your playlist as you read our latest cover story. Unless you already read it, which means you must be pretty cool.
