Hip-hop Blogging

WARNING: I plan to ramble a little bit here and my spelling, grammar, and coherency may be worse than usual. Forgive me in advance. Here we go...

I was on a tear for about 3 weeks but now I've been a little mia from blogging. I can relate to how Lynne feels, sort of. I have so many things I want to do and write about that just thinking about them burns me out! Plus work is getting hard, and my friend just passed away, and I broke up with my girl. A lot on my mind, man. Times like these I just want to sit back and let others to the hip-hop punditry.

Ian of Different Kitchen is filling the gap. I really like his blog, even down to the color scheme. He writes well and he knows his hip-hop. And he's from Brooklyn. And he's Black (I'm assuming since he's in the Black blogs webring).

I was suprised he was Black. Not many of us hip-hop blog writers are, despite my first assumptions. Jon? He's Latino. Eric? White maybe? El-Keter? Jewish I believe. And Jay Smooth? I thought he was not Black based on Jon's old post but when I just checked it I see there was a correction made. Jay is mixed. Well, that last second clarification kills what I was going to say next. So uh...forget it.

And before I go let me also point whoever is reading to a project I'm doing with Eric.

And lastly, I would like to buy a Christmas present for one of the people who signed up to my blog through bloglet. There's about 43 of you. The first one to tell me where Juanita Ka$h Hawkins got her name from I'll buy you the new Gangstarr album. This is not a ploy to get more subscribers- this is just a one time thank you to the people who have supported my weblog this year. If anything it's a ploy to boost up sales for GURU and Primo.

So yeah, peace and love ya'll.

Madison, thanks for the props on my blog and for those who may care or are curious about these things, yes I am black. I'm surprised there aren't more black hip hop bloggers too but I'm glad to see quality writing about all aspects of this culture whoever they may be.

So the pic up at HipHopMusic isn't Jay? Much respect due, but in the world of blogging, where everything is kind of centered around the writer, isn't that sort of disingenuous(sp?)? Seems to imply that that's him on the wheels. Anyway, just my two cents.

Trent of Beats and Rants is black. I'm black. But you know that already. :-)

Join me in the New Year, andin Eric's project, and let's do for hip-hop what should be done with these blogs.

Man, you know how long it took me to find DieselNation? That said, I'm glad you're back and now I gotta play catch-up. I got your back. Hope to see you in NYC.
