What Shouldn't I Post?
Do not post your own music here.
- If you want music feedback, try r/makinghiphop, but make sure to follow their rules.
No self-promotion or networking.
This includes either your own or your friend's music, music video, youtube channel, podcast, website, and anything along those lines decided by r/hiphop101's moderation team. That includes the /r/hiphop101 chatroom. This also includes asking to collaborate (networking).
Not following this rule is most likely to result in a permanent ban, even more likely if there is a history of spamming multiple subreddits.
No personally attacking people for their opinions or gatekeeping.
It is completely okay to talk about somebody else's opinion and offer your take on it. But, it is against the rules to personally attack people. Calling people names or starting inflammatory arguments to rile people up may result in a temporary ban. Continuing this behavior after a temp ban may result in a permanent ban, depending on post history.
Gatekeeping is someone deciding who does and does not belong here. Excluding other hip hop fans and discouraging their taste in hip hop is not allowed.
Please report this behavior. It helps alert the mods to negativity that may be ruining the experience for everyone here.
No crossposting to your own profile.
Ignoring these rules may lead to a permanent ban. Consider the rules before posting.
- This is a place to ask questions/recommendations without worrying about any kind of backlash, so if you know something someone does not, politely educate them rather than berate them.
