Here it is...VIBE's Top 50 Rap Blogs list...plus my comments. Enjoy! Here is 50-40.
50. Twankie & Glisten
This blog is so awesome I can't find the link HAHA.
The meshing of other genres is cool...so are we allowing this now on VIBE's list? I'm confused.
What exactly constitutes a top Rap blog? 'Cause I fail to see it here.
The hell is this? How much did they pay for the #47 spot? Did they renew their VIBE subscription or something?
Nice looking site and definitely some shit you don't see at 30 other blogs. That being said, the blog even says they don't take it seriously. Should they be on a top blogs list?
A dope spot for more undeground heads...but a lot of stuff you see everywhere else.
He doesn't post very often...VIBE is establishing this doesn't matter. Some UK exclusives but nothing of great interest.
This blog hurts my eyes. Template fail.
I really dig Garland's spot. It probably should have ranked even a few spots higher.
I dig the collections but the posting is mad sporadic. February 25th and then March 4th?
It looks like bootlegs of old school Hip-Hop. Neat.
The pain continues after the jump.
A very solid Hip-Hop blog that is ranked much too low.
Some excellent content you don't see everywhere else but poor design.
I assume this person knows someone at VIBE.
Funny and entertaining...very much deserves to be on the list.
If some of these other cats are gonna be ranked so high, this is way too low.
Rosenberg is more entertaining than 95% of the list...so yeah...I approve.
They should get the best header award. Is there this much demand though for Bounce music?
It's not the prettiest thing to look at (but neither was Bahamadia). Ian's spot definitely deserves to be on here for its collision of Hip-Hop, politics and social commentary.
Great looking blog...not a Rap blog.
I know this blog has produced some solid content before but the current post up there talks about how its owner isn't really following Hip-Hop anymore. HAHA...fantastic.
Bol is an asshole. You hate him. He's ranked too low.
This list is terrible. We're all addicted to Twitter...thanks for sharing...moving on.
It's really just links to Cipha and Rosenberg shows haha. I'm sure even Cipha would agree this is kinda ridiculous.
Yeah it's cool but it's about one artist and it's essentially promo for Cudi's debut album. Does that constitute a top Rap blog?
I'm indifferent to this blog. I guess it's fine where it's at.
FINALLY...a real Hip-Hop journalist LOL. Is this a blog? "Cat Takes Shit In Toilet - watch the video" If that's your definition of a top blog, cool.
SOHH is the worst Hip-Hop site of all-time and looks like it was designed by a 4th grade art class.
They haven't posted since April 6th...fuck outta here.
Rizoh most definitely deserves to be on here.
A cool old school Hip-Hop blog...SHOULD NOT be ranked this high.
Obviously this is VIBE lookin' for brownie points from Just Blaze. A few cool things here and there (mostly related to Saigon and Atlantic Records)...doesn't post enough to warrant this high a ranking.
Please tell me how the hell VIBE didn't fuck up here? With 96% of the list being wrong they got this right. A video blog featuring footage you've probably never seen...or haven't seen in awhile...dope.
Not exactly a Hip-Hop blog...but since the rules flew out the window with #50, I'm fine with this.
This is ranked WAY too low. I assume it's because VIBE doesn't want to be sending video watching traffic to MTV.com
Who is gonna volunteer to show VIBE what a blog is?
They post mixtapes...so does everyone else.
Even though FSD only posts Chi-Town related content, they do such a good job of it that I'm totally fine with them being at #13.
It's a joke that TSS is this low. Top 5 easy.
Ranked ahead of TSS? HAHA...as Vince McMahon would say "no chance in hell."
I would say this is a perfect spot for the double R (no Ruff Ryders) after only a couple of months.
illseed hasn't been funny or interesting since...well since I was "The Mad Writer" at HHNLive.com and StreetCred.com.
I mean I don't need to tell you again that this list is ridiculous (I guess I just did). #8? Ummm...no.
Some very solid interviews...but again...ranked about 20 places too high. This list shouldn't be 50 to begin with.
and no illroots.com? mmmmk.
I don't think anyone will dispute that OnSmash should be somewhere around here.
This is the only one they got exactly right I think.
Posts almost identical content to NahRight.com. Not hatin' just stating facts.
Can't blame VIBE for lookin' for traffic. I actually am not hatin' on this as much as I thought I would be...it's probably ranked a little high though.
Ok are we back to talking STRICTLY Rap blogs? Yes? Ok then this is in the right spot.
