About Us

Culture73.com started as an online magazine in Gary, Indiana dedicated to balancing the perception of Hip-hop culture in mass media. Founded in 2013, Culture73’s objective was to gather a global community of hip-hop connoisseurs, taste-makers, and independent artists focused on highlighting the positive aspects of hip-hop culture.

Culture73.com co-founder and music critic Drew SoulQuest fears that the hip-hop industry is unbalanced and the encompassing culture of hip-hop is misrepresented in media.

HIP-HOP Formed on August 11, 1973 in the Bronx borough of New York City, hip-hop was created as a catalyst for social revolution. Hip-hop seeks change through expressions of the creative arts such as emceeing, deejaying, graffiti, breakdancing, and beat-boxing. Culture73.com maintains this legacy with exclusive coverage of live music and hip-hop festivals, fashion designers, artists, seminars, and featured interviews with major and independent hip-hop artists.

Now we are expanding our vision as Culture73.com’s content will emphasize stories, interviews, resources, and community events that empower the hip-hop community. Especially for the Midwest, Great Lakes Region. Those topics will include entrepreneurship, financial literacy, technology, health, and networking to name a few.
