So I saw Vibe Magazine’s Eminem cover over at rapradar and saw this “50 Hottest Rap Blogs” cover line.
My initial thought was to hit up some of my homies at Vibe and try to get them to spill the beans on some off the record ish, but that would probably be a waste of time. Then I started thinking, I’m sure there are well over 50 rap blogs out there, but I doubt there are 50 good ones. If so, I don’t know about them.
The thing is, there are different categories. You have the nahrights, onsmashs and 2dopeboyz of the world who basically aggregate content, the bossips, ybfs and concrete loops providing the gossip and then actual writers i.e Ron Mexico, Byron Crawford and Dallas Penn.
That being said, ain’t nobody online messing with my three-headed monster. Whether you’re bigging up their personal blogs or their entries here on XXLMag.com, there’s no way Bol, Dallas and Ronnie aren’t three of the 50 hottest bloggers/blogs in the game right now. The thing is, I’m not sure how Vibe broke it down. So they may not meet the criteria. Who knows.
I’m sure the aforementioned aggregators and gossipers will be mentioned. Miss Info, Nicole Bitchie, Gyant and Jay Smooth are just a few of the other bloggers who should make the list. What do you guys think? Who do you think Vibe has on their Top 50 Hottest list?
