Let The Underground Speak! : How 6FT Is Developing A New Platform for South Florida
Written by Greg Harris
Florida's hip-hop scene experienced a level of explosion with acts such as XXXtentacion, Ski Mask The Slump God, Smokepurpp, Lil Pump, and more. During the time of this ascension of artists making their splash on the national stage, it wasn't a consistent platform that was following the stories of these emerging stars. During the time that these guys were becoming people's favorite new artists, something special was brewing up in the swamps of South Florida.
6FT Interviews has become not only a hot spot for artists to stop by and lay down their opinions of the industry but it also gives these on the rise performers a strong platform to talk shit on. Nick Torious has followed a similar format that famous LA-based podcast, No Jumper has taken by giving artists a platform to speak while also providing tips for viewers that range from how to get more subscribers to do's and don't of being in Miami. The interesting angle for 6FT is the fact he's paying so much love to underground he's making it cool to support the rise of artists rather than catching them in a time where they're already popping.
Although, the site is still in it's growing stages, when people look at the podcast down the line they'll see how significant this platform will be for artists and creatives in the Southeast, and also how beneficial this platform will be for the sake of Florida.
