Goodbye...For Now

As of today, Filesonic.com deleted all my files, as well as Ben's and King Skullie's. I had about 800GB of data stored there. It seems that all the filehosts are running scared because of Megaupload's trial and that there is nothing left to do and no other option but to quit. I made this decision as the creator of the blog along with Ben and King Skullie, that the blog must cease to be. There was too much work and time put into the creation of this place to have it all taken away by some greedy corporate fucks.

It was fun while it lasted, please remember this place as the first that started a wave of good material in outstanding quality. These three years spent with this blog have been a wonderful experience that none of its authors will ever forget. Stay strong, and whatever happens, keep your love for the music. You can leave any messages you have for us here.

Farewell,

MWDP


BTW--The domain is not going anywhere.  We are transitioning the site and things will change around here, so just be on the lookout for the new HQHipHop coming soon.

I know it seems like a sad day, but guess what...

WE ARE HERE TO STAY!

  4. fuuuuuu ... This really does surprise me since i figured the feds just went after mega like that from political pressure through umg people cause of that stupid kanye shit. I really don't think they're gonna start gangbusting the other hosts, that was a sucka move on filesonic's behalf, especially giving you NO WARNING to dl what was there, but i guess i wouldn't wanna take the chance of going to prison either.

    Well, this was the best spot for hq rips of hip hop online ever. Great job fellas, you won't be forgotten and i appreciate all the rips.
    Peace

  11. Wow...I noticed something was up with Filesonic because they pulled the plug on everybody's links within the past few hours. Sorry to see you guys go but I understand. I was with y'all the whole three years and can truly say that everybody here provided good quality shyt. Take it easy!

  12. damn, can't believe the shit is done. and right after the biggest net protest in the world. this site was amazing. thanks for all the hard work and uploads!!!

    remember way back when napster got shut down by the feds? all those other file sharing apps popped up and they didn't get busted. so just b/c mega got seized doesn't mean all the other sites will as well. esp now that the Internet censorship bill has again been rejected.

  17. You had the BEST site and were obvious TRUE MUSIC LOVERS!!!! I bought a FileSonic account through yall and I got lots of OBSCURE samples thanks to you. I personally know the HARD WORK that goes into a site like this, and if anything else, at least keep this domain ALIVE until all this BS slows down and maybe you can rebuild slowly... I would LOVE to CONTRIBUTE... -SCRILLZ

    ReplyDelete
  18. yeah, i think at this point it's best to wait and see how things pan out & see what happens with the cencorship bill, the megaupload trial, and the other filehosting sites & blogs. maybe you guys can bring it back later if the circumstances are reliable enough so you don't have to waste more time.

  22. Thx for everything it was great to have this site around. The LPs/Singles I hadn't hearc in many years was finally available to download for DJ'ing purposes & I appreciated it more than you'll ever know. I'll never forget you. Feel free to hit me on facebook (DJ-weezy) anytime. Until then...#Peace #DJWeezy

  23. Thanks for the last couple of years. Found hard to find flac's here checked the site everyday for something new to pop up. Best blog i ever found guess its back to torrenting for awile

    ReplyDelete
  24. Noooooo!!! You can't stop!!!
    This was the best site I've ever encountered for quality music. Thank you so much for all your effort and hard work. I know that losing all your uploads is certainly a terrible setback but I hope you would reconsider. I don't think they can stop download sites, the file sharing sites are just going to have to move the servers to countries that the U.S. can't reach. So hopefully you guys can take a break and come back better than ever. Have you ever considered putting up torrent files? Just a thought. Either way I'm really sad to see you guys go and eternally grateful for all the great music. You guys were/are the best!!!

    After the whole Megaupload thing, i was wondering what the next step was. This is bullsh*t man.

    My subscription at Filesonic just became useless!

    I wanted to thank you guys for the almost 2 TB of music i got from you.

    I will follow you guys every step of the way, and if needed, participate.

  36. Was thinking about you guys after the Megaupload fiasco and recent Filesonic business.

    This blog was amazing. As a DJ I relied on this site for so much. Not only quality hip-hop but in high quality. It was almost too good to be true.

    Thank you so much for everything. Glad I was able to contribute!

  47. to anyone who paid for a filesonic account and got screwed you should demand a refund b/c not being able to download would violate the terms of the agreement you paid for. if they won't refund you call your credit card company & file a claim.

    Thank you again.

  55. I'd read on The Smoking Section that Filesonic had decided to restrict download privileges solely to the person who uploaded the files...Obviously the first thing I thought of was the effect this might have on the good work you guys have put in at HQHiphop.....so I've just got in from work and discovered the worst has happened and this whole Megaupload fiasco has got the file hosting industry scared stiff, and FS - anticipating a knock at the door - have flushed the whole thing down the toilet.

    To be honest, I can understand why they're worried.

    But that doesn't make swallowing the pill any less bitter.

    So I just wanted to say thanks for all the unimaginable amount of effort you guys put into creating and maintaining this site, and more than anything a toast to your collective impeccable good taste in music. Thanks for sharing it with us!

  56. Goodbye for now, but awaiting the return. Cheers fellas!
