About is a fan site dedicated to hip hop providing the latest news, videos, performances, editorials, music and interviews daily.

The site started in early 2009 as a personal blog about the music I love but has now grown into a team of contributors, writers, editors, photographers, videographers and more. We aim to provide the latest news and work hard to create exclusive content. We cover upcoming as well as establised artists and have interviewed the likes of 50 Cent, Kendrick Lamar, Cypress Hill, Bone Thugs N Harmony, Immortal Technique, Nipsey Hussle and many more upcoming artists. Feel free to hit us up if you want us to cover anyone.

Artists put themselves out there to gain big rewards and therefore expect some criticism along the the way.

“To avoid criticism do nothing, say nothing, be nothing.”
Elbert Hubbard, US author (1856 – 1915)

We also cover events, listening parties, album releases, concerts and more. If you would like Killerhiphop to cover your event (New York, LA, London) or for any media requests you can contact our media team at info (at) Killerhiphop dot com.

Feel free to leave your opinions in the comments. We would love to hear what fellow fans think of the artists as well. Please keep it clean as there are enough Internet gangsters out there. Racist and generally hateful comments will not get approved.

Thank You’s
