Hip-Hop Force Rocks Crossover Music Scene (366)
(NewsUSA) - Followers of hip-hop: get ready for Abie Flinstone. The 20-year-old artist brings a fresh but polished performance to the hip-hop crossover genre. Flinstone was recently featured in a video, "Get Outta My Way," with Qwes Kross, Karma and Kaliq Scott, and she currently has multiple projects in the works, including performing live and working on a studio album.
Flinstone began writing and recording her creative, lyrical music in her bedroom in the Philippines. She now lives in Lommel, Belgium, and is poised to make a significant impact on the music scene. She cites J. Cole, Jay-Z, Kanye West and Big Sean among her influences.
Flinstone acknowledges that the Internet has changed the industry as far as how we consume media. On her Soundclick page, she notes that the Internet helps any aspiring artist spread their music, but it still takes talent to get noticed.
Flinstone says her music started out as something she did just for fun, but she obviously has the potential to go far in the notoriously tough music industry. Her videos show a combination of innocence and attitude that's genuine and gives her audience a feeling of connection. She holds her own when paired with other artists or when performing solo.
Flinstone's current albums include "The Recycle Bin Vol. II," with the following songs: "The Thrill," "Love You Like Davao" (a nod to her home in Southern Davao, the Philippines), "Get Outta My Way," "Say You Will," "iGets Crazy" and "Let You Go." Her albums are available through Big Jake Music, a division of Seven Arts Entertainment. Big Jake Music is distributed through eOne, which aggregates content for multiple digital partners, including iTunes, Netflix and Amazon.com.
The music website ilovernbmusic.com describes Flinstone's genre as a combination of hip-hop, R&B and experimental pop. So far, the experiment is succeeding, as her career gains traction and her fan base grows.

"I try not to take anything seriously," Flinstone says on Soundclick. But her music is worth taking seriously.
