Glad HB got some recognition but the music section in all honesty... "ain't bout that life":|

LOL.  Complex have a few writers who used to be HB fam at one point.  And it's not so much about the music forum. It's more about being early adopters.  Truth be told, I tend to hear about new artists super far advanced compared to other people just off hype beast.   The music forum could use some help though.

I don't think the music forum is dead. I think the main problem with it is that many users love to post all their work, pieces, sounds, etc but no one is willing to actually listen to each others stuff and give feedback. 

I prefer carcinogens to endorphins.

Somewhat true.  Truthfully, hip hop is the most image based that it's ever been.  If your image ain't right, no one's gonna give you a shot.  Plus, the day of the everyman is gone.  People don't really care much for relatable characters. They want larger than life, ridiculous, obnoxious, even scary.  They don't wanna listen to Ron from down the block who's still broke to remind them that they're broke. Hip hop is escapism. 

This is why dudes would rather listen to young lean over joey badass. 

Ultimately, my point is that most dudes spamming the music forum don't have a strong image. They don't have a presence. They still feel like the same 100 dudes who wanna rap that you went to high school with.  Some might even be skillful. They just lack the charisma to attract your attention.  Matter fact, I'm a stop ranting here and post this in the music forum. 

tl:dr
