This community exists to share rap, R & B, hip hop, etc. mp3s. I will not be held responsible for copyright infringements. I know that some people have problems finding some songs in mp3 format, or there are rare songs that you just can't find on CD, etc. A lot of people can't rip CDs for some reason or another and would like copies of their CDs on their computers--that's the purpose of this. If you don't own the CD and are asking for mp3s here, that's your choice not mine. I can't and don't want to know.
I don't want this to become a community of debating on what rap is and isn't, who sold out, etc. Post whatever you want so long as it's relevant to the scene. Anyone engaging in flame wars will be warned and then banned.
If you want to promote your music-related community here, go for it. I've got no problems with it. Trust me, I'm not bitchy about anything.
I don't have a problem with people posting playlists, but if it's long please put it behind a cut tag. (If you need to know how, check the LJ FAQ).
I would greatly appreciate if people left comments whenever they take something. We don't need another LJ community of anonymous leechers. Also, if you find yourself taking things often, please give back once and a while too. We'd all like to find out about some underground artists.
