Insomniacs Club: Public Enemy, Ka, Blu & Exile, Aminé, Kemba, Dinner Party, Killah Priest & More

via BasketballForever 😂

Way, way back in the early days of HHIR (2007) - back in my college days, when I had way more energy and also more time to work on the blog lol - I used to stay up a lot. And I had this feature called Insomniacs Club ("rap insomniac, I don't know how to act"), dedicated to sharing music videos, mainly throwback 90s stuff. I've been neglecting catching up with rap videos, and I felt like it was time to jump back into that. So... Insomniacs Club is back. (And now... with GIFs!) Hit the comments if you've got something you'd like to share, too. Peace.

The HHIR Drive

Anybody like flash drives? I'm taking pre-orders on a 256GB drive with... lots of cool music stuff on it (i.e. everything). Sanitized before packaged and mailed out. Shipping to US only (for the time being, at least).

First pre-orders get a custom mixtape (yes, I'm talking actual cassette tapes).

Message me at: hiphopisread [at] gmail [dot] com if interested. Peace.

4/14 Update: Gonna include drum kits I have onto the drive as well.

4/21 Update: All out of tapes! Flash drive sale is still going, though.

6/15 Update: Thank you to everyone who grabbed a flash drive. I'm keeping that sale running til the end of June. Will be responding to e-mails shortly. Peace.
