Critic: On this column we criticize or praise artistes and industry players. In Hip Hop culture, critics are generally and ignorantly tagged as “Haters”, but this is not true. Criticism are an important aspect of journalism. If you want to write as a critic, you have to be brutally truthful and honest. Do not worry, we got you covered.
An example is Top 10 worst rappers in Nigeria
Review: On this column we explain new material by writing out the details about it. We do this in order to get insight about new developments. We review albums, videos and other projects. Review writers should be able to write out balanced opinions about whatever they listen to.
An example is where can Nigerian gospel rappers post songs
Spotlight: This section is closed to staff writers.
Articles: Are you really good at writing and provoking thought? If yes, then the articles column is for you. I recommend this column for new and inexperienced writers. You can think of an important topic and write about it. You have the freedom to choose what topic you’d love to write on, but it must relate to hip hop.
An example is Should I but followers in Nigeria?
List/Poll: Hip Hop Heads love to scroll and see who’s who in the game. So we compile reasonable but controversial lists and polls to rate and settle opinion based arguments. Its a fun way to get people talking.
An example is top Hausa rappers list
Interview: This section is reserved for already rising artists. We introduced it to help acts get more exposure by bringing their profiles to the bulk of our audience. If you know rising artistes who’d love to get a feature or a biography, this section covers them. It’s free.
