I think I qualify as an O.G. in this hip-hop blogging thing since I’ve been covering hip-hop on and off since October 2001. Back when I first started blogging it was just me and hip hop anonymous. Times have changed, now the record industry can not deny the influence of hip-hop blogs.
Hip-Hop blogs in 2008 have such great influence that other sites react to them. Here is a video of Kidz in the Hall responding to a poll featured on unkut.com
Kidz In The Hall should be happy, they came in last place in the poll.
To defend themselves Kidz In The Hall holdup a silk screened t-shirt of Obama. The interview seemed perplexed about how pointing out that a pastel colored t-shirt defends them from the accusations. They also claim they are the first artist to put out a pro-Obama song which may or may not be true.
