You been in this 10, I been in this 5, smarten up

Tuesday, May 25th, 2010


No shots. This week marks the 5 year anniversary of the launch of this website. It should come as no surprise that I never imagined that this little rap blog would alter the trajectory of my life so dramtically. 5 years ago this week I was working as a corporate drone network analyst at a big publishing conglomerate. I enjoyed my job, but like most people, I dreamed of getting paid to do something I really loved. I had discovered the concept of blogging probably a year or so prior and I immediately recognized it as a game changer. I had always enjoyed writing and rap, but I had never seriously considered pursuing writing about rap as a career. I had no formal training in journalism and no college degree to speak of. And magazines/websites don’t hire folks on the strength of their passion for the subject, right? But blogging was the great equalizer. It revolutionized the concept of self-publishing. An aspiring writer no longer had to bother with printing up zines or shooting off writing samples to editors with the hope that somebody would be willing to give them a shot. Now, any kid with access to the internet could share their unfiltered thoughts with the world in real time.

I saw huge potential in this new medium and I was intent on capitalizing on it. It really was one of those light bulb moments where you know something is gonna be big, and you have a chance to get in on the ground floor. Opportunities like that don’t come around every day. So I started a little personal blog on Blogspot and I started writing about shit that was going on in my life and rap and really just whatever I was thinking about at the time. You’ve probably heard the story before. And you know, like they say, the rest is history. So fast forward 5 years and the blog game is on a whole ‘nother level. Rappers shout us out. Bloggers actually matter to record labels now. People come to our sites 10 times day. A bunch of folks hate. And you know what? I did see this happening, I just never imagined that I’d have a front row seat for the revolution. And for that, I’m eternally grateful. Hit the jump for the shout out portion of the post.

XXL’s Top 100 Hip-Hop Websites List

Tuesday, November 17th, 2009

XXL Dec/Jan cover #1

Whew. That was close, but we made it. No ranks. I guess the majority of this list is respectable, but a few of these sites are not Hip-Hop as far as I’m concerned. If you’re gonna consider those kinds of fringe sites, then just call it an “Urban” or “Negro” list or whatever. You can’t call this a “Hip-Hop” list and then have Sandra Rose and Bossip, let’s be serious. (To be fair, the VIBE list had similar problems). Splash has forgotten more about Hip-Hop than some of these people ever knew. But I suppose if you’re not gonna rank the list, then you have to piss people off some other way. Because that’s why lists exist. To piss people off.

Cudi Tells Wale Not to Read Nahright Comments

Friday, September 4th, 2009


Well, not exactly, but he does try to talk him out of reading blog comments in general. Although at times it can be damaging to certain artist’s egos, it does show a certain amount of maturity to be able to sit there and read what people think of you. What I think eskay was trying to say was that although the people who leave comments on the site can’t exactly be categorized as your typical rap fan or as the stereotyped internet troll, outsiders who try to read the comments usually take offense to it. And that’s because most of the time, people just leave comments for the fuck of it, and that’s when people like Wale shouldn’t, but do, get frustrated. Not always though, because sometimes the commentary is dead on, but you know… we’re not talking about those occasions here.

But there’s also a flip side to all of this. Kid Cudi can’t say “who cares” about blog comments because before these two were GQ Men of the Year (like we currently are,) they were posing for XXL’s Freshman 10 cover… and it’s exactly this kind of internet fuckery on the comments under their post that contributes to helping them earn that kind of attention. Yes Dan, I know Wale has 5 covers under his belt already. No shots!!

I once had a conversation like this with Drake, who just so happens to be their GQ co-star, about catching a lot of hate in the comments (which he still does,) and that ultimately led to the “fuck what the blogs say” line. I think everyone should keep in mind that the comments on the posts are the necessary evil that comes along with getting this kind of love from the internet. It doesn’t always precisely reflect what people actually think about you, and these artists’ tremendous success is proof of that.

Read more of their back and forth after the jump.
