Hollywood, CA (March 14, 2013) – Urban culture has propelled beyond hip-hop music and has morphed into a significant lifestyle of its own throughout the decades. The latest fashion trends, brands, careers and nightlife only represent a portion of the urban culture growth. As the industry reaches a brighter era for the countless lyricists, trendsetters, and tastemakers on the rise, only an innovative viral presence will help connect them to the connoisseurs who are immersed in this culture. Enter the trendy and upscale online magazine Coool Flame.

As a teen, Henry pursued deejaying where he was influenced by the hip-hop tunes of old school artists Wu Tang Clan, EPMD and Jam Pony Express. Although his career would lead him to professional football, Henry’s flame for music never burned out, hence the birth of Coool Flame. Henry’s objective is not only ignite the flame for the culture by introducing readers to emerging and veteran figures in the industry but to also also give these figures a platform to bring their passion to life through their work and talent.
