Alum rocks the BELL with hip-hop magazine

POSTED IN: The University of Iowa – fyi, The Big Story
Two years ago, UI student Tyler Hakes set out to create a publication that would reclaim the message of true hip-hop from the gangstas who had taken over that style of music.
Now mere months after graduation, Hakes is the editor-in-chief of his personally founded underground hip-hop magazine, aboveGround. Started roughly a year ago, aboveGround’s readership now stands at an estimated 10,000—a number growing daily.
