Best Blog (2013)

Ashley Outrageous

Who would have thought the reigning queen of South Florida hip-hop would be a five-foot-two, 22-year-old lil' lady from Fort Lauderdale? But it is so! Editor Ashley "Outrageous" Ocampo has been at the helm of all things rap since 2008 on her blogspot turned superblog, the aptly titled Fashion, breaking news, mixtapes, the hottest sounds... no matter how many snapbacks you own or "dope" rhymes you spit, she has the juice before you do. And whether it's sweet or sour, it's right there, accessible on her site. Not only is she blogging but she's also interviewing big names like Schoolboy Q and T.I. In keeping with her nickname, the petite blogger asks each rapper, "What is the most outrageous thing you've done?" She's also turned her talents south to help promote the enduring '90s hip-hop weekly at the Garret Peachfuzz, which never fails to make you sweat like a freak in heat. She's also set up some impressive local rappers like Sin as openers for headliners like Curren$y and Kendrick Lamar. If you want to know what the future of hip-hop is in the age of the internet, take a good look at Ashley Outrageous.
