John G...Eye think I've stated this before but, it bears repeating...
...Eye can probably count on one hand the number of websites that Eye have been a regular visitor of since 2001. How many (non-corporate) sites can even say that they've been in the game that long???...and Hip Hop sites....other than SOHH and Art Crimes, Eye can't think of any others that have been delivering quality Hip-Hop fare earlier than 1998....impressive indeed.
You should be particularly proud of the forum that you started, JG. Eye was around long enough to have watched it grow from a spot where a few curious fans of the True School era and a handful of heads who witnessed it first hand got to reminice and drop a little knowledge, into a true online community, complete with fellowship, beef, politics and most importantly...an incredible exchange of information about the culture of Hip Hop, particulary the True School era.
Speaking as a fan, student, and member of the culture, Eye want to say, THANK YOU...just keeping the site up has allowed this community to exist...that, alone, is worth much appreciation.
Also want to say thanks to all the heads, past and present, who contributed to making this forum what it has been over the years...Eye have considerable respect for you as whole, as well as many of you indivdually.
Here's to another 10!!!
