January Update


On to the month that starts off this new year. Last year we really began to see a rise in the sites activity and were able to start many successful activities. Let's keep this up and have an ever better year this year. 


Staff update

Arthur has stepped down from his Senior Mod spot and has became a veteran. With that being said, Endeavor has moved up to Senior Mod in his place. Crimson has also got a bump up from the street team to being a moderator.


OM King / Word Drop update


Congratulations to Self Activate for winning the OM King for November and December. The OM King for January and February has already kicked off and Endeavour gave everyone a nice challenge this time around. We already had one legendary verse dropped that has some shaking in their knickers. 


As for the Word-Drop I believe it is still underway if I am not mistaken, correct me if I am wrong and you are picking a winner already Sammy.

Nice job law! Looks like we got a lot of things underway. Site has been continued to pick up and seems we will be full steam ahead.

If the KOTM has the same amaze balls turnout it did for the last one, I think we may want to consider going back to monthly drops for that event in particular.

Also, glad to see the audio side has been picking up tremendously! If this continues on this route... who knows... we may start doing some audio challenges as well.

Hope to see all the participation continue to rise and help this site grow to its full potential. I mean, it's dope as is, but it can become rediculous.
