Hello hey hi
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:28pm mb:

Great work BronwynB! Coming thru in full stereo this week:)

Hippy New Year, all!! Heading out to get my comedy on. Billy Jam on the car stereo. Bumpin'
Avatar 7:29pm Billy Jam:

found myself enjoying instrumental (non vocal) produced tracks in 2017 - with so much great hip-hop production to choose from - also in these one hour shows it allows the vocal/emcee tracks in between to shine more IMO
Avatar 7:29pm northguineahills:

Everyone in the world! That includes me!
Avatar Swag For Life Member 7:30pm BronwynB:

haha thanks mb! that was so weird last time
Avatar 7:30pm Billy Jam:

  7:42pm spidermank nli:

when Billy gives you a shout out you know you aint all bad hahah , goddamn love you man
Avatar 7:42pm TheRapperWithNoName:

Idk how everyone else feels, but for me 2017 was a serious resurgence of some ill ill shit, even if buried deep in the soundcloud. HIP HOP is alive and well!
Avatar 7:44pm TheRapperWithNoName:

Hip Hop is pushing its boundaries, and in doing so, the experimental is reminding people of the importance of the fundamental. Full circle and all that. Please believe, believe it please!
Avatar 7:46pm Billy Jam:

@TheRapperWithNoName - I fully agree with you
Avatar 7:46pm Billy Jam:

also rest in peace to DJ Pam The Funkstress, DJ Stef, Prodigy and all the other artists who died too young too soon in 2017 - and wishing us all good health in 2018
Avatar 7:49pm northguineahills:

Avatar 7:51pm northguineahills:

@TheRapperWithNoName: True, for years it's only been a handful of tracks here and there, and suddenly there seems to be a wealth of decent hiphop, and as you said, pushing against the envelope of the genre. (and those who refuse to be hemmed in by a genre)
Avatar 7:52pm Billy Jam:

love Chuck D's commentary on Prez45Rags
  7:53pm spidermank nli:
