Earthquake Hits East-Coast of United States – First Hand Account From KillerHipHop Blogger
As you read the title you’re probably saying to yourself, “this has nothing to do with Hip-Hop.” That’s true but it does affect the Hip-Hop community. I, @EricTheKidd, live in the Tri-State Area which we truly felt the tremor that happened around 1:52 pm. I was sitting on my chair watching Sportscenter as my chair violently moved side to side which made me get up right away. My home began to move side to side and in that very moment my instinct was to get out of the house but I was in shock of what was happening, so I couldn’t move. The quake lasted for about 25 seconds (not exactly but approx.) Your probably reading this and saying, “Cool Story Bro.” But if you never experienced an earthquake you will understand how I feel at this moment.
A 5.6 magnitude earthquake hit Virginia around the same time the shakes began in NYC. It is very rare to have earthquakes on this side of America but it was meant to happen sooner than later since there are many tectonic plates on the East-Coast and there is actually a fault line on 125th St. in Harlem, NY. How does this affect the Hip-Hop community? Simple. Rappers are now invited to grab as much punchlines and metaphors as possible with this event occurring. So now it is going to be interesting to see which rappers are going to be first to mention this event in their songs.
For those who are worried about family members in the East-Coast, cell phone towers are down for a little until further notice but I am optimistic that everyone is fine.
If you felt the earthquake and was part of this historic event, leave us a comment of your thoughts and what were you doing at the moment when the shakes occurred.
…now back to KillerHipHop. Thank You.
