It’s clear that Hipppo is pretty dead right now. As things came up in life, I shifted my focus away from the site to give my attention to some more pressing matters, and more recently have been personally affected by the current pandemic going on.

I was thinking about pulling the plug on this little project of mine, but I really don’t want to. I’ve put in more work than I could imagine to get Hipppo to where it’s at, and quitting on it just doesn’t sit well with me. So instead of shutting it down, I’m going to try getting this place a bit back up to speed.

About a month ago, I made some changes to the site in order to allow more focus on the producers among us, and those changes will remain the same for now. Fresh music releases, hiphop news, articles, discussions, etc, will all continue to be more than welcome here while also providing a place for those who create music to discuss their processes and techniques, whether it be just as a side hobby or a more professional activity.

I will be adjusting some things on the site as they come up, and if you notice anything that seems out of place or working wrong, let me know so I can fix it as soon as I can. As of writing this, I don’t have any big updates in store, but I do want to iron out some minor kinks in the website.

If you use Hipppo, don’t be afraid to invite some friends to help make the site worthy of discussion! It’s much harder than I thought to organically grow a new forum, but it’s essential to foster quality discourse and allow people a place to talk and share things they care about.

I hope you all enjoy the site, and I’m looking forward to posting some more interesting music as well as producer/rapper-centric stories in the future.
