Tumblr is the new favorite place for musicians and fans to host their personal blogs. A lot of hip-hop artists are starting to take advantage of the easy to create blogging platform and the built-in social networking features that it offers.
Some rappers have even adapted to using Tumblr to host their official website. Below is a list of hip hop acts that you should be following if you are currently on Tumblr.
Beastie Boys~After twenty plus years in the music business, the Beastie Boys continue to redefine themselves and connect with music lovers of all ages. They were one of the first rap acts to cross over and gain acceptance by hardcore hip hop fans as well as the rock and roll crowd. The Beastie Boys have decided to host their official website on the blogging platform.
Odd Future~ With so many members in the Southern Cal hip hop collective, Odd Future, I decided to direct all traffic to the groups page. Tyler the Creator and Frank Ocean are without a doubt the most popular members of OFWGKTA, but no one man is bigger than the movement.
Snoop Dogg~West Coast OG rapper Snoop Dogg continues to embrace the internet culture and all of the major social media sites. From Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and Youtube Snoop Dogg is always one of the most followed musicians.
Asap Rocky~Asap Rocky brings his “Purple Swag” via his Tumblr page with his latest videos and pics with his friends like Wocka Flocka and Snoop Dogg.
Whiz Khalifa~Taylor Gang captain Whiz Khalifa just recently joined Tumblr and his page is one of the most visual blogs I have seen in a while. It seems since Whiz has got with Amber Rose he has developed a serious taste for high-end fashion.
Soulja Boy~Viral marketing superstar Soulja Boy continues to go where ever the people go. His Tumblr Page is full of picks with his rap friends like Bow Wow, Drake and even Trey Songz.
Azealia Banks~ Harlem female MC Azealia Banks is an artist that should be closely watched in 2012. She has a pop, rap, euro feel that is similar to M.I.A.
Theophilus London~ Hip Hop journeyman Theophilus London is another rapper who has decided to host his website on Tumblr. Times are Weird, but they are definitely good for the eclectic MC as he is currently embarked on a “Tour De Roses” tour.
