Dan AKA DPK, (Contributor) is a full-time prep school student, hailing from the suburbs of Boston, MA. Dan got his start in the blogging game as an editor for Rap Genius, the lyrics explanation site. While he claims to enjoy listening to all genres of music, he listens to roughly 91.2% hip-hop, 1/8 of which is chopped and screwed. He is currently gathering signatures to petition adding the word “trill” to the dictionary.
Ronak AKA Nak, (Contributor) is a college student from the great city of Chicago. His love for hip-hop was apparent at a young age, when he was found as an infant floating across the river Nile in a wicker basket with A Tribe Called Quest discography with him.
