Indiana Hip Hop // Playlists & Artist Resource Directory


BDTB has been sharing Indiana hip hop artists since 2009, and created a platform for local hip hop music to be in the conversation with the rest of the world. We went a step further in 2014 and created to be our primary hub for sharing everything Indiana-based hip hop. On this page you will not only find a playlist collection of some of the best music from Indiana and Indianapolis hip hop artists throughout the years – as it is a cumulative archive with the newest released music listed first – but you’ll also be up to date on the new music that Naptown hip hop artists are releasing. You can submit your music to be on one of our general Indiana playlists, or one of our international ones, through our submission system by following our guidelines. Visit our submission page for more details on being shared on BDTB.

The Indiana and Naptown hip hop music directory is an archived list of many different Indianapolis / Naptown hip hop-related entities that can help artists in the city. This includes studios, producers, engineers, videographers, photographers, hip hip media people and contacts, education/instructors, marketers, DJ’s, music attorneys, venues, etc. We understand the need for up and coming and established artists to have a go-to directory to help their journey in music, and we will be in the process of putting this together in the near future. We will also create a submission form soon for people to submit their own affiliations, so that anybody we may miss will be able to have appropriate representation. Follow us on one of our social media pages to know when it launches; we’re aiming for early 2020.
