Earthquake Hits East-Coast of United States – First Hand Account From KillerHipHop Blogger

August 24, 2011 · Posted in news · 13 Comments 

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.

    If haitis earthquake didn’t affect the hip hop community then some small tremors in nyc ain’t. irrelevant news is irrelevant.

    Haiti’s earthquake probably didn’t affect the hip-hop community because it was something serious that affected people’s families & loved onesThe NYC tremors is all for fun because nothing serious happened (thank god). Haiti is a third-world country to not be made fun of. Their lives were turned upside down. So do not come on this article and post a comment of ignorance. if you read it with humor like humans have, then you wouldn’t be so bothered to let the author know that his story is irrelevant.

    I felt it! I live in Philadelphia and me and my mother were sitting in the living room. I was on my laptop sitting our are HUGE couch. this couch wont move even if a body builder pushed it. We brought it to last forever. Then around 2:10, our fish tank began to shake. I thought it was our cats trying to get into again but it wasn’t. The couch, tv’s, clocks, chairs and our glass jesus in our window ( to instil fear in people so they don’t come in our house. ) fell over. Me and my mother stared at each other in disbelief for about 15 sec. I yelled, “Is this a earthquake mom?” She said, “It isn’t possible. we are not on a tectonic plate or a fault. It’s because we are fucking up the earth.” and yes my mom curses in front of us but she always excuses herself and we truly know the difference between right and wrong. It was so scary but it wasn’t my first experience with a natural disaster. When I was about 5 I saw a tornado sweep across my block. Everything was a dusty gray. Both incidents were truly amazing. Shocking but amazing to witness. I pray that everyone is okay.
