Hip Hop Makers Update

Free Drum Samples

Hi everyone, I wanted to give a brief website update.

This month Hip Hop Makers turns 7 years old which I think is awesome. Thank you to everyone who has supported the site.

But I may not be making any new updates for a while.

Last year my mother was diagnosed with cancer and passed away in November. I try to keep my personal life personal, but in the last 4 years my twin sister and father have passed away also.

So with losing a majority of my family, I have really lost my drive and motivation on a lot of things I once cared about. I’m working on this.

I still have goals and plans for this site, but my heart isn’t in it right now.

So I wanted to post a update on why you may or may not see any updates soon.

I appreciate everyone who has supported the site.

I’m hoping in the incoming months things will improve and I can work on new content and get help with the site.

Please consider signing up for the email list to get notified when new content is added.

Thanks for reading.

Update on 3/5/2015: Thank you to everyone that left a comment. Sorry I haven’t been logging into the site. Thanks to everyone for understanding. I still have plans for the site, and hope to get back on schedule soon. – Mark

  3. First, my deepest condolences go out to you and your family…I can’t imagine what you are going through. However, sometimes simply sharing you pain helps…And, is often the next step in turning the corner towards healing.

I’m sure many of us veterans would love to help any way we can. Praying for you homie…Deuce
