JET and Rap Rehab Now Content Partners
CHICAGO, RapRehab.com – the go-to destination for hard-hitting critique on Hip Hop culture, race, and the music industry – announces a new content-sharing collaboration with JET, the nation’s third largest African-American publication, which recently switched from print to a digital app format.
Starting September 2014, JET and RapRehab will begin sharing content on a weekly basis. In addition, the platforms will team up for a series of interactive, live-streamed discussions, featuring rap talents and influencers, to talk about Hip Hop culture and its larger impact on pop culture, as well as consumer responsibility.
“JET is excited to team with RapRehab, which has established itself as an authoritative and knowledgeable voice in the realm of Hip Hop culture, and pulls no punches in holding the music industry accountable for its actions,” explains JET Editorial Director, Kyra Kyles, who previously co-architected and led a class on the sociology of Hip Hop music for Northwestern University. “There is no doubt this music is influential and JET looks forward to joining forces to uplift and reflect the best of what the art form has to offer.”
RapRehab founder, Paul Porter says, “JET’s legacy is unparalleled. It’s an honor to partner with an institution that has meant so much to so many people for so long.” The former program director for BET adds, “For the last three years, RapRehab has made a name for itself by speaking frankly about issues that affect members of the Hip Hop community. Joining forces with this respected editorial outlet will allow the discussion to impact a wider audience and inspire a new generation of readers.”
In addition to thought-provoking, socially relevant content, both platforms will continue to highlight the best in new entertainment from rising artists to international superstars.
