Southside Archives was started by me, Chris, a 20 year old college student at Texas State University. I started this as an effort to set the first stepping stone in my music journalist career. I’ve been a fan of Hip Hop and Rap from an early age.

Growing up in Houston I was surrounded by music and was infatuated by it. I was about nine or ten years old when I first discovered Hip Hop, I stumbled upon BET’s ‘106 & Park‘ and caught a glimpse of 3 Deep’s ‘Watch My Shoes‘ music video and the rest was pretty much history.

I grew to love writing and in high school I knew I wanted to somehow merge those two passions together in hopes of one day starting a career out of it. This blog is my catalog through that journey.
