I got a promotion

Appropriate that this is happening the day that King Louie’s “Too Cool” remix has hit basically every major hip-hop blog in the stratosphere, when it was his music that initially spurred my return to rap blogging back in early October, but beginning today, I’ll be posting on the Fader’s hip-hop blog a couple times per day. I hope y’all will follow me there, although I’ll do a weekend roundup post on Friday or Saturdays here to keep people up on it. I will probably continue to post here, just more irregularly & with specific content, interview transcripts, etc.

Anyway, my first post is on the “Too Cool (Remix)”, naturally, and I include another song of his that I think everyone’s been sleeping on, the incredible “Smokin Dope.”

I figured I’d do a quick chronological run-down of some of the posts-of-interest I’ve written for this site since I jumped back into blogging regularly two months ago. I skipped posts that were just videos or track links or seemed of nominal interest. As always, follow on twitter @somanyshrimp to get in touch.
