Well friends, it’s official…today Clap Cowards is 1 year old!
Outside of a few controversial posts here and there, I haven’t recieved alot of comments from people who weren’t friends already. So I want to thank all of my quiet readers who check in everyday along with the jokers I hang out with regularly and the long distance compadres I clown often on Facebook. It’s been a blast to do this blog and I’ve been able to reach people across the world who might not have ever heard of me, Clean Guns, Beat Garden, or the Rap Pack otherwise. A BIG thank you to my good friend Jeff Weiss who put me on the game via my Beat Generation columns at The Passion of the Weiss and who motivated me to get this here blog up and running. And thank you to my good friend/Lady Killer Nicole, the first writer I ever hired to work for me and paid exclusively with beer tickets at rap shows.
Here’s a few of the most memorable posts (which generated me a lot of traffic from unknowing, righteous fans of Lil’ Wayne, Eva Mendes, and Vanilla Ice) sprinkled in with some of my persona favorite pieces. Enjoy, y’all!
