Elliot Wilson of XXL fame has launched his new website The site seems to be in early launch because many of the sections on the site are content free; Elliot seems to his placed in getting his site up live after his promotional hype around the hip-hop blogs. The site is still lacking other things like an About Page and an RSS feed.

Elliot Wilson has called a Huffington Post like destination for the hip-hop blogosphere. had the same idea but has failed to take off as promoters had hoped.

Will be successful? Maybe. It does have some good content like an interview with Q-Tip and T.I. but do I really want to read about what Pam from Martin thought about Biggie.

DMCA Blog Takedown

Wednesday, November 12th, 2008

Blogger took down this post because someone accused it of being in violation of the DMCA. Blogger did not tell me who accused it of violating the DMCA act. The post just vanished without me even suggesting that my use of the content would qualify as fair use.

My guess is that it is because I embedded video of a performance of Digable Planets appearing on In Living Color. I guess the corporate powers that be would rather people not get excited about In Living Color or Digable Planets.

I would suggest for those of you concerned about DMCA to get involved with EFF, the ELectronic Frontier Foundation to try and roll back the excesses of the DMCA.

Laws Are Dumb

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

Laws are dumb or at least some of them are.

The Club for Growth can be a little apologetic of the Republicans for my taste. However, The Club for Growth has come out with a great new blog called Dumb Laws. The blog covers just that subject, dumb laws. It even has a feature where you can search the blog’s Dumb Law posts by state.

Site Recomendation:

Monday, February 11th, 2008 is a new site covering hip-hop and politics. It is fairly new but it looks like it will prove to be interesting.
