RawReport.com is a music, news, sports, entertainment and networking portal that is written and produced collaboratively by volunteers from all around the world. The website will serve as a portal for anyone looking for Hip-Hop news and exclusive editorials, particularly in the video medium. Contributing videographers, photographers and journalists include fans, artists as well as industry professionals who want to share their content with the music world. At the forefront of this content is Raw Report’s exclusive material, which will be most prominently featured on RawReport.com. Unofficially, RawReport.com is the Wikipedia of the music news world and a YouTube for the music world that produces and promotes its own high-quality material.
It will be the premiere location on the Internet for users to upload informative and entertaining news/content related to music and have it completely integrated into the site (making them Contributing authors). This will generate huge amounts of music news from across the globe. Presented in a clear, sorted manor, this will make RawReport.com a one-stop-shop for Local, National and International Hip-Hop news.

We have a lot of video content, we want the sight to be video content driven. We also want users to be able to upload content. I've attached a few example websites of some competitors. The video clips need to load quickly and fast, maybe just linked from other posted locations, i.e, Facebook, Vimeo, Youtube etc. Functionality is a must.
