The Frontline- Blogging the Postmodern South

The Frontline began as a blog about
Southern hip-hop. It grew out of a
magazine column into a blog and has
since grown and changed into something
far bigger than any one genre of music.
Enjoy my journey down a mental Highway
61 into landscapes of the blues, soul, jazz,
funk and yes- hip-hop as well. In short, a
journey through the post-modern South.
