Without further ado...welcome to 2022, our 12th year of being in print!

We couldn't think of a better way to start it off than ask our friends @sidepresents

to curate the art once again! This time they chose nail technician and designer, Angie Michelle aka @pimpmyset...and let's just say...she NAILED it!

We'd also like to welcome a new column, PLATFORMS, by our very own Sam P!

This month Sam shouted out our favorite media platforms of 2021...from radio programs to zines to event organizers to pop ups...Sam has you covered. If you're new to Boston and our rag, we really recommend you check it out!

Go find a box, snag a rag and get to reading!

We are so excited for our newest program: The Tiny DAP Concerts!

As more eyes fall on New England Hip Hop, Tiny DAP aims to boost the signal of Boston’s hardest working hidden gems with an intimate, virtual showcase inspired by NPR's “Tiny Desk Concert” -- with all its national importance, but with a focus on what makes our city unique.

This web series (produced by Boston Compass Newspaper and Smokehouse Media) will offer professionally produced, pre-recorded performances highlighting emerging talent from Greater Boston artists who are at the top of their class in New England Hip Hop. Season 1 features five artists from the DAP Open Mic community and is funded by The Boston Foundation's Live Arts Boston Grant. Episodes will be dropping on the following schedule!
