A few people have reached out to ask why we are not covering the Tekashi69 story. At 1VIBE we strive to bring attention to content that exemplifies what hip-hop culture is all about. The media would like us to believe that rappers are criminals and that our industry is dirty, but we know there’s a lot more going on inside America’s biggest genre and it’s up to us to shape the culture. Our focus is on feeding your curiosity with a mix of good music and interesting stories to help you cut through the noise which has become louder and really good at shifting our attention to nonsense. Time is something that we’ll never get back so let’s spend it doing stuff we truly care about.
