The business approach to spreading the organic sound and feel of underground hip hop has finally been discovered. Gwop Ghettas & Associates have introduced the growing concept called, “Gwop Swap”. Point blank explanation why, to flourish indie “urban” style music (hip hop, reggae, reggaetone, spoken word, house, hard R&B). All the recording, all the great looking photos taken, even if you know Dr. Dre himself, goes nowhere if the music is not spread. So slide over 50 stacks and we got you.
Oh wait!! Who the heck as $50,000 like that. So? We looked through a glass to comb through and dissect a resolution. After careful research and trials, we came pitched Gwop Swaps to the indie underground world. ‘Gwop Swaps’ are simply artists in one market using their name they built in their local market to push another artist from another market and vice versa. Working together to push one another allows a solid penetration in new markets in which artists can perserviere effectively . With a little extra help from GG of course 😉
