New Website Launch Update

The other week we at HHR got a nasty little email asking that we just disappear or better yet just die. Well in the words of one famous American we " Hip-Hop Republicans Don't Die We Multiply". Hey folks all jokes aside we just wanted to give our readers a heads up regarding the details of the new website. But before we do this we want to thank everyone who took the time to donate to the site; we appreciate all that you have done. And if you still would like to make a small donation, we would greatly appreciate it.

However what’s more important is our loyal readership of thousands of visitors each week. Ideally, we want the site to be up and running by Thursday of next week but if this is not the case, it should be up the following week. However, we will let you know when the site is up and running. Below are some of the highlights and features of the new sit and what to look forward to.

Thank You
