Birthplace Magazine is the largest media source dedicated to New York-area hip hop news, artists, events and organizations, and we’re growing!

A presence in the New York hip hop landscape for years, has become the go-to destination for hip hop music culture in the tri-state area. From our investigative reporting, to our showcasing of up-and-coming artists, to coverage of A-list superstars, and pioneers and veterans is a thorough and professional site, fulfilling a void in local music journalism that has been long overdue.

If you are looking to reach this audience, young, urban, entertainment-minded people in the NY-area and beyond talk to us about how we can fulfill your advertising needs.

Here are a few quick points of interest:

We receive tens of thousands of visitors to our site per month. We have additional exposure opportunities in conjunction with our weekly, online talk radio program The NY Hip Hop Report.

We’re respected: Our coverage has been quoted by mainstream publications such as the Toronto Star, listed with the Columbia School of Journalism’s New Media Database, won awards and our content is constantly shared through social media networks, other major media sites and by major industry entities.

We’re everywhere: From concerts at the B.B. King Blues Club, to shows out on Long Island, the Brooklyn Hip Hop Festival to events in Harlem, New Jersey, Connecticut, we’re there. And not just here. Whether it’s documenting New York hip hop as invited guests reporting from Summer Jam Canada, SXSW, the A3C Hip Hop Festival or as the only U.S.-based media outlet at L’Original Festival in Lyon, France, is a staple of the New York-area hip hop scene.
