INDIANA’S HIP HOP REPRESENTATIVE. EST. 2009.

BDTB Wrap Up Results – 2015 Edition

Thank you to everyone who chimed in and voted for their favorites in Indiana hip hop this year! To everyone that actually listened and watched the songs and videos, and made a conscious vote towards who you truly thought should win each category, props to you. You are gentleman/lady and possibly a future or current scholar.

The purpose of our year-end Wrap Up is to showcase the artists in Indiana representing us to the world. The ones that are out here putting out great quality music, and the ones who truly deserve to be heard. We share music year round for that same purpose, so we thank you for participating and getting to know those artists around you.

You can review all of the votes and music here, at your leisure.

What is amazing about these polls is how many artists emerge from seemingly nowhere when we launch the voting each year, and it continues to be a great way to get to know the wide variety of Indiana hip hop – and for us to learn about each other. This includes all of the great finds, as well as some that should have probably stayed on the hard drive. But I digress, this has been a great way to find, connect, and showcase Indiana artists today and in the future.
