(Brooklyn, NY February 15, 2007) Faced with the realities of the shrinking music market, many independent hip-hop artists are embracing digital-only distribution through download services such as iTunes, Napster, eMusic, and Yahoo.com. Bay Area-based emcee, graffiti artist, and skateboarder Bukue One and LA-based trio Move.meant are among the first to adopt this trend. Bukue will release his debut full-length album Intromission via Alpha Pup Records while Move.meant will release their full-length debut album The Scope of Things this spring via their own label, Wax Paper Records.
