Why doesn’t Waco have a Hip-Hop music scene?

BLOG-6-PIC

     With more than 200,000 people in and around the Waco area, over 30,000 college kids, more than 20 high schools, an up and coming downtown area, 3 hip hop affiliated radio stations (at press time), and an over-abundance of artists; the question remains…..

    Why doesn’t Waco have a Hip-hop music scene?

    The 3 radio stations could (and do) provide some support to artist and the events going on around the city and is an invaluable tool. It should be mentioned that there are a group of people doing what they can such as; DJ Cyse, who hosts the 94.5 The Beat “Street Beats” every Sunday 8pm to 10pm, and DJ Magnum, who hosts HOT 104.9 “Waco’s Very Own” every Wednesday at 5pm , just to name a couple.

    Is support a problem? Why hasn’t an artist been able to connect with the college crowd of the city? Is it the venues that don’t give artist a stage to showcase? Or is it just something deeper that renders the city from reaching its full potential?

  Aside from the annual Waco Summer Bash Car Show & Concert, which pulls a few thousand attendees a year, hip hop shows reaching more than a couple hundred guests are a rare occurrence locally. One Of A Kind Records founder Pirscription mentioned that part of the reason he threw his Birthday Party/Concert last August was to give not only the OOAK artists, but some of his favorite other local artists a good opportunity to showcase themselves, and hopes he will be able to do it again this year.

    Many of the acts here in the cen-tex get lots of support when on the road, only to come back home and fall on deaf ears. What can WE do to change this? What can YOU do to change this? ….. Whatever the solution, just know that there are individuals out here laying the ground work today, for tomorrows success.

    Salute to the ones already doing enough, and we hope to see you at the top.
