I vote for Sickamore:http://xxlmag.com/online/?cat=22The kid (22 is the new 30) has got an incredible insight on what's going on in the industry now. He basically agrees that everything sucks? He's made some bold statements like; T.I., Jeezy and Lil Wayne are the Nas, Biggie and Jay-z and that Andre 3000 has the best new album of the year (I didn't know he was coming out solo?).Who's yours?
that boy plum drank
Is there something you want to share with the community?
I feel like you have an untoward fascination with the boy.
He just sees him as a peer - did you know, he's the same age as Noz?
Agreed--would it affect your tender feelings towards Noz if I were to tell you that he tried to tell me dude was "legit"?
Also, Combat Jack.
Both dudes' writing reads like it came straight out of The Source circa 1992.
And Hashim Warren.
rap is something you do, beer is something you live
my bad dude i'm sorry that i didnt feel it neccessary to big up 'groovetime'
I don't believe Groovetime is a hip-hop blog...
but i know 95% of the soulstrutarians arent really into this
Tepid - zings are generally only humorous when they
maintain some kind of context. Thanks for looking, though.
In terms of music blogs, Noz def holds it down. Bust the Facts throws up a CD a day and seems to specialized in late 80s-early 90s. And personallly, I really like the approach of Wake Your Daughter Up. Readable content and full CD downloads.
for a dude apparently from australia (?!) he's got some pretty deep knowledge going on
Reads like the work of a bunch of 16 year olds.
you are always up on all the latest blogs,. I will have to peep these new ones.
Sickamore sucks. I enjoy noz's xxl posts tremendously. Next up is prolly byron crawford cause hes hilarious.
I acctually love the cocainblunts site and your contributions to xxl.
What I find interesting about Sickamore is that he's a NY mixtape dude who became an A&R at Atlantic records. He's got a very interesting insight on current hip-hop and the record industry - which we all can agree is in shambles.
I think you meant to say: YEAH CHRIS RYAN IS A GENIUS
Chris is my boy but I gotta ask him about this caps thing one of these days. Dude needs to get with some e.e. cummings steez.
Do you know anyone over 16 who cares about rap anyway ?
