Welcome to The Stoop.. Have a seat
So Alumnah.. a collective of the brightest and best up and coming bloggers in the game, ( I resent the term blogger, but more on that later) Has officially come to exist. We come from all over the country (that country being The US) and even some from Canada (smh) and represent the broadest spectrum of ideas you’ll find anywhere. Me… I’m from Brooklyn. Brooklyn NY in case you crack some slick Brooklyn Ohio shit. And if you’re from where I’m from, you know the significance of The Stoop. Shit even if your not from where I’m from I’m sure at some point or another you and your fam, your people, your brethren have sat down on your stoop.. front porch.. steps.. or whatever just to chill, kick it.. talk about whatever. That is what this blog will be about.
Now a Stoop is also as culturally relevant around here as, The Corner, The bodega.. all them spots where people congregate and ideas exchange. The first time I got into an argument about Nas bein better than Jay was on the stoop. (my thoughts have changed since then.. but we aint talkin bout that now) The reason I chose The Stoop as the name though.. is because if you’re here, you’re at my crib. We’re talking on the same footing. That is what this will be about. I can cover anything from Hip Hop top 5 dead or alive, to movies to why adult swim is HOT to Why T Mobile is the worst Damn service in the game.. to Whatever.
A lil background on me.. in case you didn’t click my vague about me section.. Wrote for mags, Ran a mag (indie) worked at labels.. (a bunch of muppetry there) and still grind to this day on projects (no one hunnet thousand.. infront of housin) What i find most important regarding that is.. if you can’t be yourself.. while building your history.. is it worth it?
Lastly.. I don’t refer to myself as a blogger (Just a hustler who blogs.. Yeaaaaa) anyone can have a blog.. and spew unwarranted hatred, ignorance, animosity etc. I like to think we keep it 100 here at the Stoop..
Oh yea.. tune in for exclusives, video interviews, original articles and all that..
Imma leave you with this video of a Brooklyn dude..(grew up down the block from the kid) lil old but if you never seen it.. its new to you.. GET FAMILIAR
