Hip-Hop Homepage Developer GGDigital Gets $3.5 Million

(I'm hoping this news means that I can finally write and talk about this site and no longer have to remain confidential.)

From DigitalMediaWire:


New York - GGDigital Inc., a company developing a personalized home page for hip-hop fans, has raised $3.5 million of an expected $4.5 million new round of financing, led by Accel Partners, reported.

Other investors included hip-hop impresario Russell Simmons, who also backed entertainment network 360hiphop.

New York-based GGDigital's founders include a number of former 360hiphop executives, including Navarrow Wright, Richard Slomovitz and Osman Eralp.

GGDigital is currently in a private alpha test for Global Grind, its personalized start page, which will allow users to aggregate blogs, social networks, news sites, video, photos and RSS feeds on a single page.
