Are Rappers in Buffalo Scared of Success or a Challenge?
I like to support indie artists, but I am beginning to wonder if the rappers in Buffalo and WNY are scared of success or a challenge! I have a great opportunity for them to shine, but will they take advantage of it or just complain that no one supports them?! In order to show the rappers here some love, I put together a challenge to find out who will claim the crown as the King/Queen of the Queen City? But I've only received 2 submissions, which makes me wonder if it's really worth supporting the rappers here, because maybe they aren't willing to support themselves! If you are a rapper (and not scared of success or a challenge), submit your stuff! The winner will get a mini-documentary and be featured on Buffalo Alive! Hit the link to get the details!
