Months ago I started this hip-hop blog because I couldn't find any good ones out there. Even a Google search of "hip-hop blog" doesen't turn up many good results. And the highest ranked result is for one of the wackest hip-hop blogs out there while one of the best isn't even in the top thirty.
What the deal?
**Blogging community take note: we can collectively help out these Google search results by linking Jon's specific post and giving it the label hip-hop blog. In a few weeks time anyone who searches those terms will find that post and therefore find what they're really looking for. Also, the blogs that Jon lists will move up in their Google ranking of that same term. Good news for everyone involved. To understand exactly what I'm saying, check out this great article on "Google bombing"
***UPDATE: We did it! If you click on the Google link you'll find that the first three listings are exactly what a user would be looking for if they did that search. However, I did not mean for this post or my site to becoming the #1 result. No matter...they'll still find what they're looking for by following my link to Jon's site. Thannks to all the bloggers who helped behind the scenes!
You wouldn't happen to know of any reggae blogs, would you? The Google search results are even worse than for 'hip-hop blog'. We need some better tools to find blogs by subject matter. Like some kind of smart, automatically built directory.
I just noticed that your 'evil plan' worked. Now if we could just get google to drop all those other wack blogs...
Hip-hop blows! Why would you waste your time! Zero talent + a rhyming dictionary and some stolen music = Hip-hop which all in all equals talentless crap!
Hey guys, what do you think about the bling craze? When I say craze I mean like this 14" medallion that I saw at the club the other day (see www.punkhop.com for a picture). I think it's pretty funny. Anyone else?
I just started Fr8train's Hip Hop Blog at http://fr8train.blogspot.com It has comments on old hip hop songs, one-hit wonders, and NO blatant ads for Benzino! Anyone wanting to trade links, let me know.
I'm fellin' your blogg, just started one my self. I review Albums and sugest the hottest artists to check.
your welcome to leave your comments.
DAVE CHAPPELLE HAS GREAT TASE IN HIP HOP WHICH IS RARE THESE DAYS ---- HE SHOWCASES THE BEST WHILE ALL I SEE EVERYWHERE IS ELSE IS TEH BLING BLING POP RAP THAT IS SO CHEESY IT MAKES ME GAG EVERYTIME ANOTHER 50 CENT VIDEO COMES ON ----------- I HAVE A DREAM THAT DAVE WILL ASK DIGABLE PLANETS (WHO RECENTLY REUNITED AND ARE WORKING ON THEIR THIRD ALBUM) TO PLAYON HIS SHOW AND THEN SPARKING UP THE PASSION OF PEOPLE LIKE ME WHO FEEL LIKE EVERYTHING THEY LOVED ABOUT HIP HOP AND EVERYTHING THAT FELT COOL HAS DISSAPPEARED AND LEFT US FEELING LOST ------ GET DIGABLE PLANETS ON CHAPPELLE SHOW AND YOU WILL SEE A TURN, EVEN IF SMALL, IN THE MOMENTUM OF HIP HOP.,PLEASE

I like your blog. Check out mine and maybe we can share ideas.
Pretty decent hip hop blog. I like the simplicity and you're right. Many of the other hip hop blogs are indeed trash and useless.
Solid hip hop information plus informative opinions is what a good blog should have.
So anyway, I'd like to add my 2 cents...
For any aspiring rappers looking to learn to rap, improve their rap skills, etc...there is a great new hip hop site called http://www.TheStateofHipHop.com that you will do well to check out. It was launched by some friends of mine a short while ago and is getting a really nice welcome to the net from visitors. It's got rap tips, rap advice, news, improvement articles, interviews and more!
Enjoy all and keep up the good work.
Your hip hop blog really works in google.
Maybe someone can buy some hip hop beats here. lol!
Hip Hop is here to stay
I am forty-four years old and I think that Hip Hop is awesome!
I am proud of the young and now not so young black rappers and Hip Hop performers that have set the world on fire with their rhymes, clothes, speech, and culture.
Many older folk are critical of Hip Hop artists. I think some of the critics are jealous of the notoriety and financial success of many from the Hip Hop generation.
The young Hip Hop entertainers and promoters are among the wealthiest people in black America.
Hip Hop culture is celebrated and copied world wide.
Not all of Hip Hop lyrics are pretty – but not all of reality is pretty. Hip Hop is an art form and art reflects “real life”.
One of my favorite Hip Hop artists is super star 50 Cent.
50 Cent had a hell of an upbringing in New York City and his records reflect what he knows “hard core NYC street life”.
I admire 50 Cent because he made his experience of being a street hustler to work for him instead of against him.
50 Cent’s debut album “Get Rich or Die Trying” is the manifesto for his music and ad career.
In Atlanta music mogul Jermaine Duprey was in the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Newspaper talking about how he would like to buy the basketball team the Atlanta Hawks.
And Duprey has the financial power to really buy the team.
Duprey while speaking about possible plans to buy the Hawks was wearing some big shorts and a tee shirt.
Duprey was clothed in the urban casual street wear symbolic of the Hip Hop culture and talking about BIG business plans that few of the Morehouse brothers in business suits can dream of or even begin to execute.
Hip Hop artists are creating and changing culture world wide and laughing all the way to the bank by marketing American urban street life.
Hip hip hurray for Hip Hop!
