who are we?
Off The Ave is a leading pioneer in the Hip Hop Underground scene. We began in July of 2006 as "Off Tha Ave" (OTAV1), a simple VB forum, but was quickly noticed as being one of the most popular tools for finding and listening to great Underground Rap Music, especially Chicago Underground Music. Over the years, our fanbase quickly grew from predominately Chicagoland users to users from all over the country, to all over the world! User's from places such as Australia, New Zealand, United Arab Emrates and Brazil (just to name a few) came to listen to our region's music as well as share their own favorites, their ideas, have convos and just kick it with like-minded members. Since then, we've became known by our members to have the best selection of classic and new Chicago Midwest Rap as well as Northwest Indiana (NWI) music to listen to.

Around April of 2010, "Off Tha Ave" re-branded to "Off The Ave" (OTAV2) and we started evolving our ideas on the growth and promotion of good music. As of Nov. 2011, we've implemented a slew of brand new features and have expanded our global user base. But we're still dubbed a haven for all good Chicago Midwest Underground Rap Music, as our roots are still deeply dug into the Chicago/Midwest rap scene.

So, interested in joining Off The Ave? Sign up! It's quick, it's easy and most importantly it's FREE! Becoming a member allows you to connect with our community, create a profile, upload videos, music, mixtapes, photos and much more!
Though we cater to all underground music, the majority of our music fan base is underground Chicago/Midwest.
