Today begins a new tradition at HNL Hop Hop. As Sundays are typically slow news days and have more to do with kickin’ it I’d like to dedicate a few posts each Sunday to reminiscing on our past. We’re gonna cover videos, fashion, op-ed pieces on game changing events, throwback mixes, and more. Ideas on top of ideas as we strive to make HNL Hip Hop so much more than you average blog but the site that connects Honolulu to the world and the island to itself. This is only gonna get bigger…trust that. If you’ve got something you’d like to see in the Throwback Sunday posts than make sure to holla. We do this for the people. Bring it back one time…
