I read Thursday’s Daily Texan feature on rapper Kreayshawn and thought it was awesome! I commend The Daily Texan for choosing to chronicle what is a very real shift that is occurring in hip-hop. It is a scene that is not given its due respect, and there are so many young, talented rappers who are not getting the attention they deserve. Not only is it a disservice to the artists themselves, but also to the potential audience of people who can have their lives enriched by experiencing a rich culture that is transforming the music industry. The genre has entered a renaissance that can’t be ignored. I have to thank you all at The Daily Texan for not leaving any stone unturned and bringing to the UT community many promising artists and diverse representation from all genres.
