Here’s what’s inside this directory…

  • A list of hip hop blogs that will post your music (with their Twitter profiles)
  • A list of Internet radio stations that will play your music (with their Twitter profiles)
  • A list of some of the dopest graphic artists who will design your covers
  • A “must follow” Twitter list of those who regularly give very valuable advice to indie artists

My fellow bloggers and I agree that submitting music incorrectly accounts for a large percentage of rejections. So also included are…

  • Common mistakes artists make when submitting music
  • Why you’re probably not getting posted
  • What’s wrong with your email blasts?
  • Social media promotion mistakes

Also, the Online Grind hip hop blog directory is constantly being updated with new entries. So as an added bonus, those who purchase it will exclusively receive updates of newly added sites and information by email. FOR FREE! So it always stays fresh!

 It’s important that you know where to send your music to get it properly exposed.

    i bought this yesterday and it looks like it’ll really come in handy once i start making music thanks for posting this :) made a mistake yesterday though, i posted my name and e-mail address thinking it was a subscription section but just read it properly now and realise that section is for people who want websites or e-mails listed, just a heads up letting you know there’s no point adding my e-mail address to your directory :P thanks again and keep the business/marketing/promotion etc posts coming

  • Rahat

    Really great resource! Saved me a ton of time I can focus on submitting my music to sites rather then searching through and finding places that will give me the time of day. Check out my latest single off of my upcoming ep “The Broken Ice EP” the song is called “Didi” its arabic pop infused rap song. (Rap is in english as is the first set of vocals).

  • Ecouia

    Just purchased mine and will be using it a.s.a.p. for my clients. I would highly recommend it! I do PR for alot of Indie Acts and I do alot of research and there was still blogs and radio stations I haven’t found.

  • JL Rida

    Thanks for the update Funkworm. I haven’t had much luck with the last version, but hopefully these new sites will be more open minded. Here is the project I tried promoting.
    Could you please give it a listen?

    Stand out tracks are: “Wildfire”, “No One Needs You”, and “That Time”.

    Thanks again,

  • Sammus

    Thank you! I really appreciate it — I’m a lady producer and rapper and it has been SO hard getting people to recognize that not only am I NOT a gimmick, but I am talented as hell in my production and rhymes. I hope these indie cats show me some love —

  • k.i.d.

    woke up this morning to a beautiful email and its much appreciated. being that im a producer, I like to listen to music A LOT. everytime this is updated, I find a new blog site that gives me new material to listen to and a potential new customer. this was a great investment.

  • K. Wagner

    How do we get the YouTube grind one if we already purchased the normal edition?

  • FuNkwoRm

    I appreciate the comment. Great beats on your site by the way!

  • FuNkwoRm

    Nice track fam. I think I heard this when you posted it on the Facebook page. I’ve put it in my queue. So stay on the lookout and thanks for following the blog!

  • FuNkwoRm

    Hey Sammus. You’re dope. I checked out the video you made for the contest and you definitely got the skillz. Hip hop needs more women to represent so I appreciate your contribution. I’ve bookmarked that video for later posting but I’m going to take some time out to listen to some of your other music. Keep in touch.

  • FuNkwoRm

    Check your email. Whatever email address you used to purchase the directory, is the same email used to send you the YouTube guide. Check your spam folder too. If you still can find it, let me know.
