For the music industry, last Tuesday was not business as usual. Like many other media companies, 1VIBE participated in the #TheShowMustBePaused
initiative which was created by two black women in music in observance of the long-standing racism and inequality that exists from the boardroom to the boulevard. It was a day of reflection after the death of George Floyd
, who was laid to rest at a Houston funeral
The purpose of our weekly newsletter is to highlight the best stories we’ve recently featured on our website. Right now it is our duty as the front page of hip-hop
to bring attention to the racial inequality and police brutality against black people. It is our responsibility to continue to amplify the voice of a movement that has a clear message: Black Lives Matter
. There is a lot of progress to be made, change does not happen overnight, but we promise to do our part in amplifying the voices of black citizens and the hip-hop community.
Below are a few of the stories we’d like to bring your attention to but if you’d like to dive deeper we’ve compiled a collection of 61 stories
(news, music, and videos) that 1VIBE has curated from different publications.
