The critically acclaimed HBO hit series The Wire offered a candid reflection of how drug-infested communities, a poor public school system and government corruption tainted the city of Baltimore. Though the characters and lifestyles portrayed were in fact based on true encounters, still there was one aspect of the city, which the popular series did not explore—hip-hop.

The evolving underground hip-hop scene in the town known as “Charm City” is equipped with talent who are determined to partake in the art to overcome adversities. With the Ravens taking home the Superbowl Championship last Sunday, and The Wire celebrating its 11th year since the show’s successful premiere, the city, not yet known for its music scene, looks to flex its wings to be recognized as the next wave in hip-hop. —Kimberly Brown
