The New Breed is a ménage of talent from the middle of the map (PDA, Drakdee, MeduNetr, Playya1000 and Deeksta, MistaCain, Hotlink) to the East coast with acts such as Big Rec, LEWN, and Ntrepid. The New Breed mentality is a new fresh perspective on the Hip Hop nation. From beat to beat, lyric to lyric, The New Breed uses Hip Hop to show the world the good and bad in all of us. Oklahoma City is quickly becoming a breeding ground for The New Breed of Hip Hop.
