Drafting Of The Bloggers I’m The Number 7 Pick

Thursday, May 7th, 2009

Vibe’s long awaited and soon to be much debated Top 50 Rap Blogs list just leaked to the web. Cocaine Blunts (no comma, no bullshit) comes in much higher than I would have expected, which is flattering. But let’s talk about the rest of the list. Minus an obvious effort to preempt a hissy fit by putting Kanye’s design blog for aging homosexuals at #2, the top ten is pretty solid. After that it starts to lose me. But respect to the Vibe staff for opening up what could be an interesting conversation on what actually makes a rap blog great and hopefully getting us all a little bit of a traffic bump.

Full list and additional commentary after the jump.
