WELCOME TO THE GLXSSHOUSE
What is The Glxsshouse?
The Glxsshouse is a content creation outlet focused on the exploration and curation of Southern Hip-Hop and Culture. We produce original essays, photographs, illustrations, and playlists.
What does The Glxsshouse mean?
The Glxsshouse is a flip of the word “glass house,”--a slang-term referring to vintage, American-made cars (i.e. Chevys, Cadillacs etc). Inspired by the Big K.R.I.T. song of the same name (“The Glasshouse” from his mixtape K.R.I.T. Was Here), we use “glass house” as a symbol to reflect our southern roots and as a vehicle to tell dope stories.
What are The Glxsshouse’s core values?
The Glxsshouse believes in holding meaningful conversations about the human experience, hip-hop culture, and the intersection of both. We’ve distilled our values into the five C’s:
Commentary: We believe in our unique ability to deconstruct and critique music and other forms of culture.
Collaboration: We believe in deep, organic collaboration to achieve original and credible storytelling.
Connection: We believe in sharing our understanding and appreciation of southern culture to further enrich the already diverse hip-hop community.
Curation: We believe in the importance of artistic and cultural gatekeeping as a means to embrace honest and skilled storytelling.
Creative Integrity: We believe in treating each content release with the same care and attention to detail as an artist would producing his/her debut album.
What makes The Glxsshouse different from other hip-hop and pop culture digital-media outlets?
Originality. Quality. Authenticity. In the digital world of click-baiting and content-aggregation, we rely on well-intentioned innovation in producing content that will last beyond one cycle of trending topics.
