Below is the most comprehensive list of hip-hop blogs you’ll ever need.

The Ultimate Hip-Hop Blog Directory is updated monthly and all blogs listed are active. By my definition, active means they have posted in the last 3 months or regularly post through their social media accounts.

The blogs range in size, reputation and topics covered, but they all have one thing in common – they primarily serve to report on and discuss hip-hop culture. There might be a couple of sites that aren’t quite “blogs” on this list but I’ve felt they should be included because they might still be useful to you.

I have reviewed each and every one of these blogs manually and I will continue to maintain this directory on a monthly basis.

I have reviewed thousands of blogs and social media profiles in order to create this list. So, if a site listed below is down, has stopped posting or perhaps you think it just shouldn’t be on this list, just let me know by dropping an email to info@whenthebeatdrops.com or Tweet @wtbd. Having assessed and formatted so many blogs for this directory, there are bound to be some that don’t quite fit.

On the flipside, it’s entirely possible that I may have missed your blog or a blog you’re a fan of. If that’s the case, feel free to submit your blog by contacting me (at the address above).

If you want to know more about why I created this list and what else you can look forward to, read my post “Why I Created The Ultimate Hip-Hop Blog Directory“.
