Clyde Smith: Current Hip Hop Projects [Post ProHipHop and Hip Hop Press]

Glitch Clyde

As some of you may know, I recently sold and exited ProHipHop and Hip Hop Press.  As a few of you might remember, I actually began blogging at Hip Hop Logic way back in 2002 when it was hosted at netweed.  Though I did blog at hiphoplogic.com for a bit a couple of years back, I shifted my primary focus to ProHipHop when it launched in 2004.

I'm going to be mostly low key in the world of hip hop media [though, given my history, who knows?] but I will be blogging and creating information resources at the following sites:

Hip Hop Logic - where you can find my weekly New Rap Albums report.

VidRap: Rap Videos - posting hip hop music videos.

Hip Hop @ netweed - where you can find such resources as the Hip Hop Albums database.

Hip Hop Research - focused on academic research regarding hip hop.

As I say, these efforts will remain relatively low key but you can send relevant news and video links to:
hiphoplogic(at)netweed(dot)com

Peace,
Clyde

Hip Hop Research: Book List at 51 Academic Titles & Growing!

Hip Hop Research, a new blog from Clyde Smith devoted to documenting academic studies of hip hop, has reached 51 titles with more on the way.

Entries feature the book's cover art, when available, and basic links to WorldCat, a world library search engine, as well as options from Amazon and Google for checking out the book's content.

The long term goal is to use this book list as a basis for an annotated bibligraphy of academic studies of hip hop but it's pretty cool just to see what researchers have already accomplished in this area of study.

Please pass this news on to students, educators, researchers and folks who like to know what's up!


Hip Hop Logic Now @ hiphoplogic.com!

So Hip Hop Logic now has a permanent home at hiphoplogic.com and the domains and related technicalities should be resolved by tomorrow.

Feeds should still be updated automatically and new content as well as a new design are on their way.  The new design may have to wait for some other issues to be resolved but this move should put Hip Hop Logic on much more solid ground.
