Have an Amazeballs Thanksgiving DJBooth Nation, We're Out!


Around the country people are leaving work early and preparing for an extended turkey coma/Thanksgiving vacation, and we're no different. Even though it may seem like the DJBooth staff only exists on the interwebz, I guarantee you we're all actual humans with actual families and actual desires to eat and not work for a few days. So except for if something truly significant happens, we won't be updating the site until Monday. That means no "Best/Worst" this week, no "This Week in Hype" podcast, etc. Sorry, but sometimes in order to keep making great stuff on the internet you need to get off the internet for a while. 

Before I sign off though, in the spirit of the season, let me run down what I'm thankful for. 

I'm thankful that I get to write about rap music for a living. Every day I recognize how ridiculously amazing that is. I'm thankful for every single person that reads anything I write or listens to anything I say, even if they think I'm a "bloggin ass hoe." I'm thankful for the DJBooth team - squad! I'm thankful for "Gangsta," that song continues to make me lose my shit. I'm thankful for this Slug and Eyedea freestyle, hip-hop is awesome. I'm thankful for Rosa Acosta stretching videos and Munchos and Shea Seranno's Twitter and everything else that makes life just slightly more enjoyable everyday.

Calboy Is a Trendsetter

Now go thankful the fuck out of your Thanksgiving DJBooth Nation. Much love.
