Hip-Hop… it’s prolly one of the most controversial phenomena. People love it; people hate it. Everyone knows the word but still no one can say what exactly it is. There are lots of definitions & everyone goes with their own. Some say that Hip-Hop is a culture, a movement, a music style, an art form, a lifestyle but most of all Hip-Hop is a mindset… I would even say “a soul-set”… cuz Hip-Hop is not just a form but substance… Cupid’s arrow that shoots you right through your heart & leaves a mark that never goes away… Hip-Hop is everything & nothing; it’s everywhere & nowhere. And even tho’ there’s a common opinion that Hip-Hop is restricted to its four main elements: Emceeing, Break Dancing, Graffiti & DJing; this phenomenon is much bigger than just that. Hip-Hop is self-expression of an individual who reflects the whole world in a piece of art… it’s so common & so unique… so brand new & so familiar… so revolutionary & so classic. It’s a voice that says things others might be afraid to say… a rebel who breaks the rules to make a difference & change the world… voice that says “I am” but means “We are”. It’s a spirit that knows no boundaries… spirit that lives through prose & rhymes, melodies & beats, paintings, moves... It doesn’t matter what exactly you are doing or how you express yaself; as long as you do it in unison w/ the spirit of Hip-Hop you are Hip-Hop… 

Now lemme introduce to y’all a young princess of Hip-Hop canvas, up-and-coming artist, Vanessa Cabarloc. When the illest lyricists create metaphors w/ the help of words, this girl paints them saying things that can’t be put into words but nevertheless can’t remain unsaid. A lot of things can be said about Vanessa’s art but Imma let it speak for itself. Welcome to the world of Vanessa Cabarloc…
