Daily Operation 10.7.2021

Daily Operation.
Remember this feature of the site? Back at it. Gonna try to stay consistent with this and, yes, post on Hip Hop Is Read... EVERY. DAY.

Comment Section.
You may have noticed the comment section on new posts has disappeared. I've removed this feature of the site for a couple of reasons: 1. It's difficult for me to moderate comments. This site has been up since 2007(!) and I forever receive lots of spammy comments on posts, new and old. It's a headache I wanna rid myself of entirely. 2. With that said, I'd like to move any/all discussion over to Mixcloud. At least we'll see how that goes... Mixcloud has been good to me over the years, allowing me to share music without having to worry about DMCA takedowns, spam, deletions, re-ups, other bs. What I have in mind is for conversations to move over to Mixcloud. Wanna leave a message? Do it on my latest Mixcloud uploads. (The site also allows you to message me directly.) So feel free to say hi over @ The Tape Deck #478...
