Site Stuff






Just a quick request for today.  Take a look at the list in the sidebar.  No, not that one, the one with all of the artists that have been written about on HHID. 


Now I know most of you are aware of the ongoing project I've forced myself to deal with, where I'm trying to finish up the catalogs of most of those artists before I either tackle some new ones (or figure out exactly what I'm trying to do with this blog, but that's neither here nor there right now). 

What I'm asking is, let me know in the comments below which artists you would like to see me tackle first.

Bear in mind there are no guarantees; I'm just trying to gauge interest overall.

Note: this is not the space, nor the time to request new artists to be thrown into the mix.  In fact, any new artists that end up in the comments section run the risk of being blacklisted and may never actually appear on the blog.  Okay, that probably won't happen, but please keep the requests limited to my original question.  

Thanks in advance,

-Max

    1. Nobody's actually written about Below The Heavens, so I'm not sure how we jumped straight to Blu and Exile's second project together.

    I'd say Madlib, but I imagine you'd want to do something that could realistically be finished.

    Go Nas since your pretty close to being done with him.

    Danny Brown (when he drops album Old), Action Bronson, Freddie Gibbs, Mr Mfn. Exquire (his new mixtape Kismet), The Pharcyde (labcabincalifornia),and Tyler the Creator's Wolf. I honestly feel like you've given most if not every rapper on here their fair due.. I think you could take the blog in whatever direction you'd like.

    If reader reviews count, I'd be curious to know your own thoughts on Scarface's catalog, as well as the DOC's debut. Tossing that aside though, Common gets my vote.

    1. For the time being, Reader Reviews only count if I've also added to the artist's catalog on the site; this way, it actually chops some of the rappers off of my "to-do" list. Doesn't mean I'll never write about Scarface (I may throw something in eventually), but The D.O.C. probably won't pop up again (unless someone contributes a Reader Review of his third album).

  11. I'd personally love to hear your thoughts on Killuminati. Does my review negate any hopes of you writing one in the future? The same applies to Like Water for Chocolate. An Electric Circus review would also be nice... and potentially hilarious.

    Also, you expressed interest in the past about posting a revised review of Liquid Swords. Is that still a possibility?

    1. If I did, it wouldn't be for the blog. If I started revisiting older reviews, I'd never finish anything.
