We are a Hip Hop digital lifestyle magazine aimed at true Hip Hop heads. This site will take you back to the head nodding, graffiti writing ,beat hunting, breaking & popping days of the early 90′s, right up to the people keeping it real today.
The site is all about documenting an era, bringing all the quality content to you via video, images, articles and feeds. A vast majority of the content is researched and written by us but when we find great articles and content from around the world we will include and will always credit the original writter and provide a link to their website. Our mission is to be the best resource for industry defining hip hop in the world using all means available.
We do this because we love it and have lived the culture, if we make a bit of money down the line it means we have succeeded and have a large following…..happy days!
This site contains high quality Hip Hop from artist such as Pete Rock, Guru, Notorious BIG, Nas, Tribe Called Quest, L.O.N.S, De La Soul, Dangermouse, MF Doom Etc.. You will not find Tinchy Stryder, Chipmunk an the like as they fall under the category of ‘Urban Music’ and we do not cover that here! Thankyou for reading this health warning.[/highlight_1standard]

First thing I do if it is an artist I am writing about is load them up on Spotify and get into character. I write down everything I think I know and then set about research online. I check my album covers from that artist and any other resource I can lay my hands on. It’s a great journey of discovery for me as I really learn the people I am writing about along the way.
Obviously Wikipedia is a great resource and very reliable, but I also lean heavily on the extensive knowledge of my friend, Paul ‘Font Tha Cake’ Fontaine who usually has the answers to my many questions.
I don’t claim to be a literary genius, nor did I do particularly well in English at school, but just wanted to share some cool info on some cool people. Hope you enjoy.
