About RapRise

WHEN:
RapRise.com was founded in June of 2011 by Jeff Wood; and by July 2011 the site was fully launched.

WHY:
Jeff, being an artist, was tired of there not being a centralized location on the web for unsigned hip hop talent to shine. To get featured onto the industry-leading sites you have to know someone who knows someone who knows someone. And most times… you just don’t.
He also wanted to help bring the ‘community’ back to hip hop. To show that it’s not always about the major players. RapRise is by the artists, for the artists.

WHO:
FOUNDED BY: Jeff Wood
DESIGNED BY: Jeff Wood
CONTRIBUTORS: RapRISE, J. Scott, LG
