I posted this a while back but now I’m making this offer redeemable all the time. Here it is:
I have an idea! I’ve always enjoyed writing letters and I want to do more of it now since I have graduated into obscurity. Here’s where you come in. Do you like the site? the songs? Send me an email with a list of songs that you want on a single mix CD — your favorite ones. Even if you don’t like hip hop and you just look at this site to humor me, I hope you still do this. At no cost to you, I will make that mix CD and mail it to you. I’m not done yet. For a couple easy payments of zero dollars, I will write you a completely personalized letter (it won’t be about hip hop, don’t worry). Even if I don’t know you, I will still write you a letter. And hopefully you’ll reply but no worries if you don’t want to! Really, what reason do you have to not do this? Free catchy music and an awesome letter. Email me at nate.bentley [at] gmail.com and holla at me with 10-15 of your favorite hip hop jams off the blog and your name and address.
