Duck Down


Due to the snitches out there in the blogger world (whether RIAA or human), many Wordpress blogs, including mine were suspended or shutdown over the last few days for having music download links. And I wasn’t even posting any music that’s remotely current. It’s funny that it happened when it did because I had already been contemplating giving up the scanning of magazines entirely. I still haven’t been able to scan that December 1996 issue yet because of the ungrateful leeches out there. So from here on out, I’ll try to take it slowly. I may re-post a few magazines that I’ve already posted on Wordpress since no one has access to them any longer. If you have any specific request for something I’ve already posted, then let me know.
FYI - Before I begin posting magazines again, this blog will go private. Leave me a comment with your e-mail address if you want to continue visiting the blog.

  2. Thanks for all your hard work scanning the old Source magazines and tracking down all the songs for the Fat Tapes. Your hard work is appreciated and it's been fun checking your site almost daily and reminiscing.

  26. Not for nothing, man, but this is some real live bullshit. Your site is a gotdamn historical archive for hip hop journalism. I can't believe out of all the blogs that deal with the dl illegalities, you get shut down first.

    Fuck it. Out with the old, in with the new. Turn the bad to a good.
    Turning over new leaves and all that mess.
    Thanks for the invite.

    BTW- I got that BDP cover of Sex and Violence on my wall in front my computer. Dope shit.
    And you definitely should have been Top 5 on that Vibe list.
    Peace.. -- Verge
