The article focuses on the launching of the Web site hiphopcrack.com as a sort of MySpace, YouTube, download store directed solely at the urban audience, by Babygrande Records founder Chuck Wilson in the U.S. on October 1, 2006. The independent hip-hop impresario, who also wrote the script to 2004 film Soul Plane, says songs will only be streamable at first.
