Throwback: 7 Weeks of XXLmag Blogs

I like to think I keep track of all of my clippings, in my Published Work section. Apparently I don’t. There’s a bunch of stuff missing like my short stint as a columnist for XXLmag.com. I’m baffled at how I left this out. It’s not like having your own column for XXL is small potatoes.

In 2006 when I started, Elliot Wilson was at the helm of rap journalism as Editor-in-Chief of XXL also leaving jewels of editorials on the magazine’s virtual identity. Also editing my half-baked articles was my homie Bfred (Yoda of the Internet). I had all the pieces in place to write my weekly commentary on videos that I felt could be deconstructed scene-by-scene like Lil Wayne and Birdman’s visual for “Leather So Soft”. There wasn’t really a lot of authorities on music videos, at least not online. I figured I could bring my at-home rants about music videos to a reputable site like XXL‘s to keep the computers-‘putin, since they racked up views for other columnists like Bol. So I was no Bol, but I figured I could at least be a little snarky about rap songs I felt would get videophiles excited. Below I collected the 7 links from one of my short side jobs.

*Shoutout to YN and Bfred for giving me one of my first shots at firing shots. Ha!
