BUFFACOLD: Many times the glitz and glamour of the “Big Apple” overshadows the efforts of surrounding communities. As someone who has roots in New York City but lives just eight hours north in the tundra- like confines of Buffalo, NY,  I find myself discovering an interesting parallel between my two worlds. Both regions possess a plethora of talent, a thriving Hip-Hop culture, and an almost overbearing sense of ambition. In a world full of limited opportunity, my contribution to the ether should not only be consumed by mega-celebrities already featured in their 4th issue of Vogue, but also with the kid on my train who sells his own beats or the girl down my street who markets her music on Soundcloud. With that said, I present another column, BUFFACOLD to my “minimalistic” blog. This is specifically for rising urban talent apart of the Hip-Hop scene in Buffalo. Be sure to check it out because sometimes the coldest places bring the heat. Yes, I came up with that.
