The HipHopDX 2010
At HipHopDX, we grew up living and dying by reading Rap reviews, and often purchased our records because of them. We want to carry that tradition onward. As one of the last remaining places that takes time and resources to comprehensively review your favorite mainstream, independent and underground Hip Hop releases, we celebrate annually with our 30 Reviews In 30 Days. Here, we give you a review every single day, looking at Hip Hop’s busiest release schedules, and providing you with trusted opinions of what to check for, and what misses the mark. This page is a one-stop for you to see the list happen in real-time, so dive right in.
~ Jake Paine, Editor In Chief
Each month, we decide which releases the DX readers care the most about, and what we feel they should know. We have relationships with nearly 100 record labels, and many more publicists, managers and people that get us the music. Based on what you, our readers have clicked on the site, what you’ve rated highly, and what matters to the culture, we assign the review. We specialize in reviewing nationally-distributed albums that are sold both digitally, and still released on CD and other formats.
HipHopDX’s Editorial Staff has over 40 years of collective professional experience in music journalism. From there, we enlist our respected and comprehensive staff of writers to collectively listen, evaluate, and determine what has the nod-factor, and what gets the gas-face. The Editorial Staff and the writer come to a rating, and we present you a review with audio, video, and purchase links to support the artists and the argument.
This year’s 30 Reviews In 30 Days writing staff includes our editorial staff. Jeff “J-23” Ryce has been leading DX’s review writing for a decade, while he is joined by our editorial staff, and trusted writers who have contributed to magazines, blogs and embody true gatekeepers of Rap taste-making.
This year's 30 Reviews In 30 Days also features contributions from the following writers:
