About Me:

My name is Eric Bernsen and I am the creator of HipToTheGame.com. I created this blog as a platform for my writing on the subjects I am most passionate about. Like many, I have been a sports fan ever since I can remember and took that enthusiasm to Fairfield University (’12) where I graduated as an English-Journalism major and Marketing minor. During my time there I was the Sports Editor of the Fairfield Mirror (student-run newspaper) and also worked as an assistant in the Athletic Department. In terms of hip-hop and music in general, that interest developed in high school and it has become a part of my daily life. With this blog, I am taking pride in contributing to the culture of hip-hop and helping it move forward to the best of my ability. The only way I know how to do that is writing about the music that has the biggest impact on the genre as well as the music I personally think is powerful and deserving of exposure. Knowledge is power and as the website grows I hope I do as well.
