The music industry is in flux, leaving many artists with no real understanding of how to make an entrance or how to make a living. Even the major labels have no real roadmap for dealing with new and emerging technology.

Rap Sheet, the first Hip Hop Newspaper was launched in 1992 and by 1997, became the second largest rap music publication and the only one with Black ownership. After a brief hiatus, the publication and the website have been re-launched, taking advantage of cutting-edge technology to synergize and reinvigorate the music industry.
