            1970’s… somewhere in the Bronx a “ghetto secret” was born. In the beginning the whole movement was all about the East Coast. Philly, New Jerz & of course NYC originated everything that's considered to be “Classic Hip-Hop” today. It doesn't matter what part of the country you rep cuz I bet that there's at least one East Coast “Golden Boy” on your list of Top 10 MCs. It's almost impossible to overestimate East Coast's impact on the culture. New York  ruled the game for decades establishing traditions & canons of the culture being the “East Coast” in the rap game for a long time. 1970’s, 1980’s, 1990’s & even early 2000’s… everyday a star was born. “Five boroughs” gave the world the biggest stars in the history of Hip-Hop. But as time passed the situation changed & the East Coast started losing the “boss status” due to all the tribulations, inner rivalry, commercialization and some other processes. All of a sudden the great past became less than enough to be the ruler… A lot of people claim that the East Coast ain’t as influential as it used to be. Well, if you turn on TV or the radio you'll hear the same voices you heard a few years ago. The “new blood” ain’t making noise like it's supposta & the “veterans” don't always keep up w/ the game. But does it mean that “the great past” has no “future”? Or maybe Hip-Hop is simply cooking a new “ghetto secret”… a “secret” that went underground to make the illest comeback & shake the whole world again? I'd been asking myself this question for a few years till the day when I ran into a stranger who looked so brand new & so familiar at the same time & that stranger was none other than New Jerz Hip-Hop. Hip-Hop's finest traditions mixed w/ honesty, free rebellious spirit, true love for the culture, mad talent, innovation, and hunger for greatness, success & recognition… “Don't talk about it, be about it” is the formula of New Jerz Hip-Hop. If 1970’s can be considered as the date of birth of Hip-Hop then late 2000’s be the Resurrection… the Resurrection of the East Coast Hip-Hop in its purest essence cuz while the industry is just getting ready for the next level NJ artists & producers like Verb Spielberg, Apollo The Great, YFame, O-Skeez, Floco Torres, VeloCitY, Haiti Da Poet, SneakerBox Chock, Greeph, Doochie Bass, Money Carsin, Prince Of Da Piff, ILL Gates, Eddro, Traxx Trigga, White Mike, Shizz Beats and many others already play the game on that level raising the bar not only for the East Coast but for the whole Hip-Hop community. Good ol’ Hip-Hop w/ absolutely new & sometimes even unexpected flavor is the bomb that's about to explode & put the new capital of Hip-Hop on the map.
