I'm not in a good mood at all today. I was gonna go ahead and write something completely different before I got hit with some bad news...I didn't make the Vibe list. Since I don't show up on Alexa, I'm not high of Technorati and I don't even have a link on Rap Radar (but I DO on Nah Right!) that didn't surprise me. What DID surprise me were the blogs that made it ahead of me and many of my blogging brethren. A gang of them I had never heard of before or even knew they existed. A bunch of them were celebrity blogs that don't really post anything except for pictures of shit, news about a certain artist or content from other sites. Thun from T.R.O.Y blog said people shouldn't bitch or complain about not making the list...Fuck all that, son. I'm mad.
First off all, if content isn't the main criterion for determining what makes your blog list then it's a bunch of bullshit to start. Secondly, if you don't post often or have a voice, state an opinion or have a definite purpose or mission statement then why does your "blog" exist? That's not a blog in my opinion. Just posting up random shit and calling it "content" is garbage. Posting up the same shit that everyone else in the bloggerverse did isn't "blogging". If you're a celebrity and you didn't write anything yourself...then you're not a blogger. Also, if your blog is nothing but a promotional tool for a specific artist then why does it even count? Is the reader learning anything from seeing a Kyte video of your brand new Air Yeezy's or pics of all your Polos and Supras? Are they? NO. Write something!
I'm over here busting my ass trying to write or come up with new shit every weekday to combat the copycat bullshit that's all over the bloggerverse currently and so many of the blogs on Vibe's Top 50 list have the opposite philosophy on blogging that I do. How the fuck didn't Wake Your Daughter Up, When They Reminisce, Hip Hop Isn't Dead, Model Minority, Rappers I Know, It's The Real, etc. make this list? How did they manage to miss so many other stand out blogs as well? I think we all know the answer to that...this Alexa/Technorati bullshit trumps original content. That means that Kanye Universecity will make the list although it really isn't a blog in my opinion. Also sites full of bullshit like World Star Hip Hop and VladTV will make the list over actual blogs where people wrote about stuff. How did The Megatron Don even make the list? Dude posts once ot twice a month and when he does it's like two sentences. What the fuck is that?
In conclusion, I decided that rather than bitching about not making the list on Twitter (seriously, how fuckin' old am I?) or walking around my apartment looking exactly like my avi I should continue to do what I always do...bust everyone else's ass and outwork them at every turn by my goddamn self. I'm so magnamimous even as Vibe shits on me with their wack ass list that I'll go ahead and do their job for them and create my own Top 50 Rap blogs list. Since they don't seem to know what a blog actually is, I'll just go ahead and show 'em. Also, the list will be in alphabetical order...not that arbitrary ranking bullshit (how can you really rank that anyways?). Maybe now I can get back to what I was actually gonna do today before I got a Gmail on my iPod Touch this afternoon telling me "Son, you're gonna be MAD!". LMAO!
