2012 RapRise Awards: Power Crew
By rapRISE |


The first of our awards today is for ‘Power Crew’. This is a new award that we felt was only right to include after seeing such a presence from the resurgence of hip hop crews this year.

Many ‘crews’ have released their share of music this year, but not many of them have delivered as a unit just as strongly as they do individually. The one set of artists that has been the most statistically consistent on our site has definitely been December Gang. Led by their most vocal member, Jelani Carter, the December City Music Group has made several waves on rR throughout the year. Not to mention their noticeable entry to the RapRise Cypher, which was owned by Rsonic and Lex Leosis. And Slick-T has always been a man making waves on our site. This crew has more artists than we care to count, and each have something to offer. Let’s see if they can keep this up in 2013.

Congratulations to December Gang!

I always like when Slick-T comes out of nowhere with a cover. Not necessarily as a businessman, because I hate when we’re a few hours late posting it. But as a fan, I’m always excited for his new music. Keep it up, Slick.

  • What’s Your Name?

    Who are you? Really. Ask yourself that. The first step to making a presence is knowing who you are. The one thing that should always be consistent throughout your brand, (yes, you are a brand), is your name. Occasional name changes aside, your name always be the same. But when upcoming rapper, let’s call him “Kid Magic”, releases new music and his YouTube account calls him “K.I.D. Magic”, song title calls him “KidMagic”, Twitter calls him “Kiidd Magic”, and so on and so forth, how are his fans supposed to connect to his brand?
