Josh Abramovitz From 4bar The “Vine” Of Hip-Hop – Episode 21

Today we spoke with Josh Abramovitz, the CEO of an app called 4bar. 4bar otherwise known as the “Vine” of hip-hop is a new musical app introducing the 4bar format where users can create their own rap clips and punchlines only using four bars to say what they have to say. The app allows you to choose a beat to record over or, for shy users, you can submit your lines through text. Listen as we discuss with Josh how the app works, why 4bar is aiming to be the next “Vine” for the hip-hop community and how the app will help up-and-coming rappers and producers get discovered.
