The Smoking Section (Masthead) Respect Our Fresh!



We can't possibly listen to all of the music out there.

We don't need people to ramble like some of *cough*Gotty™*cough*.

What we need is more in the line of reviews. We don't want Amazon type reviews but we don't want "yo yo yo son this shit is hot! Cop it!" type bullshit either.

Instead, we'd prefer something like this what our constant prototype, regnyouth

Since our inception, cats have come to us for direction on what's hot, why it's hot, etc; what's different but good & worth a listen etc. so while we can put all the emotion we want into it tyring to sell an artist/album, it's that ability to be critical that gives them solid foundation to say "hey, aiight, let me give this a listen".

We want a good mix of musical knowledge & personal opinion, kept in a concise, easy to read form.

Genres don't matter. Anything that influences hip-hop as a culture, we're about that...So be it jazz, reggae, rock, alternative, soca, R& get the point.

Oh yeah...and you gotta be dedicated.

We post daily & update consistently to serve our readers.

We don't get paid shit.

Not now anyways. Maybe never.

But we still do it.

If you think that's you, let us know.

E-Street Team

To spread the word...put us in your sig in forums you visit, post this guerilla marketing shit on Myspace, Facebook, blase blah....

Subliminal messaging and word of mouth are wonderful things. Walk big, talk big...they'll think you're big.

We're major!

To repost, copy, paste, just delete the three *'s and any space

Like a street team plastering the streets with promotional items, put that shit wherever you can get away with it at. We need a few folks willing to post some stickers up as well in their area. We're designing some right now, and will send out to any willing recipients. Post them all around your campus, hood, favorite club, etc etc. Anywhere that will get us noticed. Feel free to send us photos posing next to the most interesting places you can put the stickers, and you might just get mroe than a shoutout.

Go help spread the word. But, consistently. Not just once. Several times. Several hundred times.

Technical Help

Our goal for the summer months is to increase the number of visitors while so many people have free time on their hands.

One of the keys to this is to increase our presence in search engines. We're working on that in several ways...

Expanding our offerings by doing more reviews & getting in touch with more artists for interviews. If we offer more, they will come.

Link-swapping and creating affiliations with other larger sites

Working on meta tags & the like

But we can always use more help in this area because none of us our the most technical human beings. Sorry, we're creative artsy folks lol...we produce the ideas and the words. We need folk to help us bring it to the masses by increasing our presence on the web.

All in all, we have more plans to institute growth.

But of course, we can't do it alone.

So we're reaching out for your input, suggestions and help.
