Hip Hop In My Headphones

I’m Antwan and I am the sole operator of this fine establishment.
I post hip hop that I love, both mainstream and underground.
Artists and producers can get at me if you want to be featured on the blog.
If I don’t like it, I don’t share it. I’m not spreading negativity & I’m not sharing music I don’t like.
Let’s shift the focus of hip hop back to the REAL, together!
