Hip Hop Article Directory: Says it all, really. I’ve not got time to look through it but this looks like a really fascinating resource. It’s interesting that a genre comparatively neglected on the web (count the sales of hip-hop albums and the sales on indie albums: now count the sites dedicated to each) should throw up such a density of fascinating material. There’s very little theorising about ‘alternative’ and independent music online – which many would say is a good thing, but I’d not be among them. It’s probably the difference between local scenes and a more macro sense of ‘community’.
