MAN I WANT TO THANK EVERYBODY. THIS IS A REAL HONOR! THIS WHOLE YEAR HAS BEEN SO OVERWHELMINGLY POSITIVE…. FROM THE LONNIE SHOUT OUT TO AUSTIN…. FROM KISS SAYING WE HAD THE NUMBER 1 BLOG ON THE INTERNET TO TREVOR SAYING NOBODY’S FUCKING WITH US. IT MEANS A LOT TO BE ABLE TO GET RESPECT FROM MY CORE AND PEERS EVEN THOUGH EVERYBODY KNOWS I GET A LITTLE CRAZY WITH THE POSTS SOMETIMES. I’M ON VACAY RT NOW WITH A WHITE T ON. IT’S NICE TO READ SOMETHING POSITIVE FOR A CHANGE! JAY SMOOTH PIONEERED WHAT I DO NOW. HE WAS THE ORIGINAL TO BREAK DOWN DOORS BETWEEN “REAL BLOGS” AND HIP HOP WORLDS, DOING VLOGS ABOUT OBAMA AND RUNNING AROUND WITH THE MODEL CHICKS. HOF GET’S REAL FRESH. DALLASPENN HAS A GREAT EFFORTLESS SINCE OF STYLE. YN HAS SET MAD TRENDS AND IS THE SINATRA OF OUR ERA. NOBODY IS AS FRESH AS RALPH LUAREN HIMSELF, ONLY NATION AND DRE GET CLOSE BUT THERE’S STILL WORK TO DO. I THINK OLD MEN BLOG THE FRESHEST, NOT TRENDY AT ALL BUT SOMETIMES STILL COLORFUL AND INTERESTING. THEY’VE FIGURED OUT WHAT LOOKS GOOD ON THE SCREEN AND THEY STICK IT(PAUSE). THE UP HILL BATTLE WE HAVE AS HIP HOP BLOGGERS IS HIP HOP IS ROOTED IN TRENDS. TRUE RAP AND TRENDS VERY SELDOMELY MEET. THAT’S WHY WE HAVE A TENDENCY TO BLOG ABOUT STUFF THAT’S LAUGHABLE 2 YEARS LATER. WHEN I CAN SEE CRAZY STUFF I’VE POSTED AND PEOPLE LAUGH AT ME, ALL I CAN DO IS LAUGH WITH YOU AND THINK, I HAD FUN THOUGH. THANKS AGAIN, MR. ES

Speech inspiration. Full list after the jump.
