Discussion on: Welcome to the 1VIBE community!

Hey hey!

I'm Michael and I'm from Pittsboro, NC. I'm not too far away from J Cole's hometown of Fayetteville... also just did a brief search and learned that the producer/rapper 9th Wonder/9thmatic is from nearby Winston Salem.

Anywho, I discovered 1VIBE because I work at Forem (the platform that hosts this community) and lucky for me I really dig hip hop, so plan on sticking around. 😎 But, just to say that if anyone has any questions about how things work here, I'll do my best to help out. πŸ™Œ

Some fun facts about myself... I love playing music β€” all types β€” but most recently played in a classic rock/bluesy group. I also really like the outdoors β€” I like hiking, kayaking, and just generally spending time outside.

And hmmm, so what have I been listening to most recently? My tastes are very eclectic and I can probably find someone or some thing in nearly every genre of music that I like. But since we're on a hip hop site, I think I'll stay on topic... πŸ˜…

I freaking LOVE Anderson .Paak and have been following him for about 5 years now ever since I saw his Tiny Desk performance with his group The Free Nationals:

Yo @michaeltharrington once again thank you for all your help and support getting 1VIBE ready for the people! You know my πŸ’š for Forem runs deep 🌱

I also really enjoy the outdoors, especially going on long walks or drives. It’s when I get to enjoy listening to new music without all the usual distractions.

I have a feeling that Anderson .Paak will go down as a hip-hop legend. I’m sad that we have to wait until next year to get the new album from him and Bruno Mars. But I know the wait will be worth it and imagine those two performing live together. That will be epic!
