I'm surprised it's taken the hip-hop community so long to get a serious music app like this together. There really aren't any serious contenders unless you can find and tune in to a dedicated hip-hop radio station app. The app is very simple to you use and looks quite menacing and brilliant on the slick looking iPhone. If you are a fan of the genre you are going to have to have a look at it and there are big plans to take the app even further. This free app was developed and is overseen by true hip-hop fans - and it shows.
