Two new episodes of Red Bull Music Academy’s fantastic series of mini-documentaries entitled H∆SHTAG that explore the relationship of new music and the web.  The third installment looks at hip-hop, more specifically the micro-genre of Cloud Rap and features some heavy hitters associated with the sound including  MainAttrakionzSpaceGhostPurrp, Flatbush Zombies and more who speak on their influences and how the internet has mutated a sound that was once determined by ones region. 

Episode 4 comes in strong with an all-star cast focusing on beats music and its origins in LA to the world-wide phenomenon it is today. Featuring interviews with the likes of Flying LotusTNGHTShlohmo, XXYXX, The Gaslamp Killer, Benji B, and more talking about how location, region and of course the internet has affected their genre and more specifically the opportunity for collaborations between beat makers and rappers living thousands of miles away from each other.
