After 25 years of impact, Creekmur says AllHipHop is original.Creekmur spoke to rolling out to discuss why he embraces all sides of the emerging hip-hop culture and other topics.
How are you feeling at this moment?I’m great, man. It’s a celebration of hip-hop and a celebration of an accomplishment. It’s 50 years of hip-hop, and AllHipHop turns 25 this year. We’re celebrating across the board.
How does it feel to have a media platform that amplifies hip-hop culture?
It feels great. We grind so hard; we grind every day, and we don’t even take a moment to celebrate ourselves. This is almost like a finish line, but it’s like a new race. We’re just taking a moment to soak it all in, but I’m looking back, reminiscing, and feeling good.
What are you looking forward to seeing from the industry?
I know this is generic, but I’m looking forward to everything. With a website like AllHipHop, we celebrate every aspect of the culture: the old, new, young, unsigned artists, and [artists] globally.
What’s your hip-hop commandment?
You brought the old-school lingo out of me. My commandment is to be original. AllHipHop is an original, and that’s what I do.
