DETROIT REPRESENT!

This post is dedicated to some of the newer local Detroit artists that are making moves! Detroit a.k.a "The Dirty Glove" has a lot of musical talent that is waiting to explode onto the mainstream side of the music industry. There is a strong underground hiphop scene in particular in Detroit, that has the potential to reincarnate the Motown movement from the 60's and the 70's if they worked together? Artists like Slum Village, Eminem, Paradime, Royce Da 5'9", D-12, and The Athletic Mic League have already taken Detroit hiphop to a global level, but the respect is still not there! When you think hiphop, you don't normally think of Detroit? On the soul tip, there are artists like Dwele, Platinum Pied Pipers, Amp Fiddler and Tiombe Lockhart that are getting some national and global recognition for their distinctive talents as well. There are many new albums dropping from Detroit artists in 2006, so hopefully I can do my part to promote these artists and get them some exposure?

Below, I put together a bundle of albums (old and new) from Detroit artists that I have been digging for a minute! This is just a glimpse of the talent here in Detroit, but I hope you will take the time to find out about these artists, and give them your support! I will have links attached to the album covers where they are available! If you need more info on any of these artists, hit me up, and I will try to find what you need!
