Trapital is supported by the Member Update:
The Member Update
The Member Update is my analysis on the most important hip-hop business news story of the day. I will also cover hip-hop’s intersections with the rest of the music industry, entertainment, pop culture, and more. Members will get three emails per week in addition to the weekly article. If you enjoy the weekly articles and want more, then the Member Update is for you!
Members will also get invited to a private forum where we can discuss articles, debate, network, you name it.
Read what others have to say about Trapital
“I’m an industry insider but I can’t front, I really enjoy the content even when it goes against our marquee artists.”
– Cory Sparks, Director of National Urban Promotions, Epic Records
“Dan’s ability to tell hip-hop stories with an eye for the business is very unique. The newsletters are timely but still read fresh weeks after their publication. Trapital’s insights are very important to the discourse surrounding the most popular genre in our industry.”
– Jacques Morel, On-Air Correspondent, Genius News
“I enjoy reading about culture. And music. And business. Somehow Trapital combines all of those subjects into regular essays that almost always make me look at the world in a new way. Huge learning curve from this newsletter. And fun to read!”
– Andy Weissman, Partner, Union Square Ventures
“Hip-hop music isn’t just the soundtrack to many of our lives, it’s the force influencing modern brands, commerce and celebrity. Trapital covers this culture with the respect it deserves and each issue dives deep into an original take. What would you call the exact opposite of ‘click bait?’ Whatever the term, Trapital embodies it.”
– Hunter Walk, Partner, Homebrew
