Best In The Mix has been through a lot in the last couple of years of its existence. A few different owners, varying formats and themes, changes in style and content, etc. One thing has remained contstant, however: our love for hip-hop. If you look back on the various articles and posts from The Niftian and other esteemed guest authors, you'll see the proof that they live and bleed hip-hop. Whether it's the kid Loko waxing nostalgic about classic albums or Just Mic harping on the advantages of independant rappers, the site has tried to run the gambit of giving you the real, the raw and the varied. Look at Twon Johnson's 2011 Top 20 Album List for a sense of that statement. We don't pigeonhole ourselves here, and we damn sure don't plan on stopping. As a matter of fact, as the year goes on, we have every intention of giving you more. More album reviews (Loko will be covering a few Wale jawns soon on http://www.musicsofa.blogspot.com/), more Pioneer Series (will have two on Missy Elliott and MC Lyte soon), more artist talk (Big K.R.I.T.'s newest mixtape NEEDS to be talked about).
And as always, if there is anything you want to see, hit us up at TheNiftian@gmail.com and let us know! Comments, concerns, gripes, complaints, praise...whatever! We need your feedback to make this a premier hip-hop review and op/ed site! NiftyWorld is taking over and you're going to help us lead the way!
We're quickly approaching 5,000 pageviews and we're so honored that you've shared this ride with us and that you've been spreading the word. Keep getting the news out there, and we will keep giving you more of what you want. We have some networking to do this year and will make this site one to be proud of and one that you will WANT to tell others about. 5,000 down...let's get 5,000 more before the end of the year, hmm?
