Whether you pronounce it Hip Hop "Livz," Hip Hop "L-eye-vz," or simply FilAm Funk, I am happy to present the 100th Hip Hop Lives post! It's been nearly two years, and we've really made it this far?? From a silly little idea to post up pictures from concerts, to an article-type medium which college students critically analyze (shout to Prof. Cheryl Hitosis in Chicago!) and a cultural learning tool that travels around the world to fellow Filipino artists, this humble little blog has expanded bigger than I ever imagined.
Where will it go next?
I often meet readers who approach me at conferences and community events and give me daps for the blog. I'm always surprised to find out who reads it. I have nothing but love for yall.
For new folks who just started reading, here are the top 5 topics, based on those receiving the most comments:
5. ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: A Tribe in the East with DJ Mike Rizzy
4. Fil Am Famous: Is dance how we'll "get noticed"?
3. Asian Pride on MTV! But, Where Did the Filipino Go? (with more accurate and up-to-date info thanks to commenters)
2. Stuff Fil Am People Like
1. Fil Am "Invasion"?
