BDTB has been sharing Indiana hip hop artists since 2009. We went a step further in 2015 and created hiphopindiana.com to be our primary hub for sharing everything that is Indiana-based hip hop. On this page you will find a playlist collection of some of the best music from Indiana and Indianapolis hip hop artists throughout the years, while also staying up to date on the new music that Indiana hip hop artists are releasing. Visit our entire Indiana blog archive here.
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 will include studios, producers, engineers, videographers, photographers, hip hip media brands 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 this is a work in progress. We will eventually have a submission form.
Chreece Presents and Live Nation
After the success of the first three festivals, Chreece Presents has been formed to promote Hip Hop Culture on a year round basis. While attending the Music Cities Conference in April, Live Nation’s Dan Kemer and Chreece Presents got together to discuss ideas on how to further develop Indy’s live Hip Hop music scene. From these discussions, Chreece Presents was born. The newly formed promotion company will assist Live Nation in promoting Hip Hop shows, curate local music showcases and assist in securing local opening slot opportunities on national tours. This is a great move for live Hip Hop in Indiana and will only strengthen an already burgeoning music scene.
