Residing in the sunshine state of Florida, but having a more global influence with the help of the internet, is the music blogger and aficionado by the name of Ashley Outrageous. Being a female in this hip hop industry has both it's advantages and disadvantages but Ashley has pushed through them to make her name and site prominent on the ever-so expansive internet, earning her the nickname "the 5'2 giant." Not only does she have a popular music site but at 21 years young she also runs her own event company, Bread and Butter, with her best friend where they bring underground hip hop events to Miami.
Ashley and I met up recently while she was in NY and shot this in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. Vinny Picone, who I've interviewed for this site before, also tagged along and got some behind the scenes shots which you can see by clicking here. In this video (which is part one of two) we discuss some of the basics such as how she got started with her site, how she studied graphic design originally, her event company, and the future. Make sure that you stay tuned for more varied topics in part two!
This is the tenth episode of a series called 'Conversations of the Craft.' The idea behind the series is that interviews are too formal. Conversations are a natural flow and progression of words between two or more people. These are conversations with talented individuals discussing their craft and what they love to do.
