"We want to provide a global perspective on a profoundly American genre". For years now, people from all regions of the globe have been taking hip-hop and flipping it with their native tongue and aesthetics, pushing the boundaries of the genre in many new directions. Until now, there has not been a central location solely dedicated to showcasing international hip-hop artists to American audiences. will fill this void, playing host to all things related to international hip-hop.

Flight 808 will focus on a different nation or theme every week, posting 2-3 short editorials alongside downloadable music and links to videos on the web. Foreign hip-hop fans and artists are encouraged to get involved and submit content or even write on behalf of their respective homelands. A truly international effort, has landed.
