My Twitter account has been blowing up lately which has been a true blessing. As a result, I have had the opportunity to connect with a lot of great people.  It shouldn’t be any surprise to you that I am a music connoisseur and I generally like all different genres of music. Lately, however, I have been on a hip-hop kick…mostly because my boys are into great artists like Lecrae, Andy Mineo, Social Club, Tedashii, Derek Minor, etc.  So as my Twitter followers have grown, I have been blessed to connect with some great independent hip-hop artists.

Here are a few Friday-featured hip-hop artists that caught my attention lately that you should check out and follow.
