Periscope is an amazing tool to have. Twitter quietly purchased Periscope for less than $100 million in March 2015 and it looks like their investment will pay off in the future. The app allows users to have a live broadcast from anywhere in the world using their iPhone or android device.

The benefits of Periscope is plentiful, especially for rappers. It allows for live interaction with your audience. MCs can essentially create live Q&A sessions with fans directly and give a sneak peak to whatever the artists is doing at any point and time. The beauty about Periscope compared to Snapchat is that it doesn't limit the user to ten second clips. Artists can log into Periscope, show their audience what they're working on and quickly get fans excited for new content while getting quick feedback.

To follow people on Periscope, simply click on the People icon at the bottom of your Periscope app, search for the artist, follow him or her once you find them, and set notifications to on. Whenever an artists begins a new broadcast while you are on your phone, you will be notified. It just make sense for hip-hop artists to have Periscope. Some rappers are ahead of the curve and have been utilizing Periscope already. Check out the gallery above for the best ones.
