Tis the Season to be Thankful

Thanks for Rocking with us in 2011

Thank you for hanging with us in 2011.  After a daily message challenge in 2010, we’ve taken it a bit slower on the Hip Hop Affirmation front.  Don’t get me wrong, we didn’t stop the party, we just took a break from dancing every song the DJ played.  Instead we hit the dance floor when we heard our favorite tracks.

With that being said we did have a couple of cool things take place in 2011 and we are grateful to be able to share them with you.

  • We added a partner to the mix. I’m working with my home girl Tonya Rapley to bring you the freshest, dopest and most motivating lyrics and affirmations
  • We Mashed it up. We introduced the Lyrical Mash-up which places a traditional motivational quote with a hip hop lyric that has the same meaning.
  • We continued to speak. We hit up a couple of colleges in 2011 to spread “7 Hip Hop Affirmations to Change Your College Life” and “7 Hip Hop Affirmations to Kick-Start Your College Life.” My full speaker kit can be found at: Bruny’s Speaker Kit
  • We started a Tumblr site: HipHopAffirmations.Tumblr.Com.  This is much more of an artistic look at the lyrics and affirmations you love.  Visit and leave us a comment here
  • We created a limited number of “Thank you” cards (there are a few left): What a great way to say thank you to the hip hop appreciator in your life.  Anyone can grab a thank you card from the local drug store, but this is going to be a collectors item.  Let us know what you think.  Grab one here.
  • We connected with some cool people: That includes Daymond John from FUBU and now Shark Tank, Russell Simmons and we had a chance to interview Wyclef Jean (see the article here: Wyclef Article)


Thanks for Allowing us to Rock with you in 2012

In 2012 you can expect to get more post focused on Albums as they drop.  We can’t promise that all of the hits will have awesome affirmations, but you know if anyone can find an affirmation in a song, it’s the hip hop affirmations crew.  There a couple of of things we would like to change in 2012.  We would like to hear more from you.  We want to know what is working for you and what isn’t.  How can we make hip hop affirmations work for you and what you are doing in your life.  Our goal is to be a source of motivation so you can do all kinds of things that you potentially didn’t think you had in ya.  We are hear to serve. With that I leave you with this last question:

What would you like to see in 2012?

We wish you and your family a Happy and Hip Hop filled Christmas.

Your Ambassador,

Mike Bruny
