(A Couple Reasons) Why I Love Hip Hop

September 1, 2012 by


Last week, a friend of mine asked me to give him a little schooling on Hip Hop. The dude knows a lot about EDM and Jazz, but wanted guidance on where to get started in the world of beats and flow. We both agreed that I’d help teach him about the music I love by […]

Alyssa B. – Watch the Throne: Framing Black Artistic Success in America (Essay)

August 27, 2012 by


As our site’s motto suggests, we believe that hip hop is more than music.  It incorporates a genre of music but further stems out to almost every facet of life to represent a culture within its self. With that in mind, we try to promote more than music at Da-What and want to include anything […]

Everything is a Remix

October 27, 2010 by


So, I just found this really cool project, Everything is a Remix. This is the first part of a 4 part installment by Kirby Ferguson on the history of remixes. While it doesn’t talk exclusively about Hip Hop (the first part has mostly to do with Led Zeppelin), I thought it was a pretty cool […]

I am going to start a series called “(Da) What’s on my Mind” and in this series I will just write about the music world and music business.  I am not doing this to push my opinion onto other people but to hopefully start a discussion and hear other people’s thoughts on the subject.  I […]

Vibe Best Rapper Ever Bracket

May 22, 2009 by


I have mixed feelings about posting this link cause if I do then Vibe was successful cause it sparked a discussion and got people to promote it. Vibe is currently polling its “readers” (if they still have some) about who the best rapper ever is. I saw the bracket and it is pretty disgusting, unfortunately […]
