Step 1: Produce a beat in your bedroom. Step 2: find an MC online to rap over it. Step 3: Upload it to SoundCloud. Step 4: Hit the Top 10. Just a decade ago, you rarely heard stories like this. But over the last couple years, artists like Lil Uzi Vert, Post Malone and XXXTentacion have parlayed their online success into huge sales and chart-topping songs, all while pioneering a unique fusion of hip-hop and emo that is changing the sound of both genres. Our panelists will tackle a host of fascinating questions about the rise of “emo rap:” Could this have happened without the internet? What kind of cultural factors do you have to consider when you’re combining two disparate styles of music? And what’s it like to collaborate with artists you’ve never even met? Stop by this panel to learn everything there is to know about this developing sub-genre.
Panelists: Lil Aaron, Charlie Shuffler, Kreayshawn
