My name is Jesal. It fills me with great pride to announce that I’ve bought out and completely taken over SuperCritic. It’s a moment of personal and professional joy, as a longstanding ambition has always been to own a music journalism website.
After days of negotiation with the previous owner – who was going to close the entire site down and delete it from history – I managed to get a deal that will not only ensure the survival of the site, but opportunities for expansion.
The 3 writers that have done such a sterling job previously have agreed to stay on, and I myself will now be writing about hip hop for the site. We are also hoping to create entirely new sections, not to mention an eventual redesign. This will take some time, so please be patient, but the content will be updated regularly.
Are you interested in writing for SuperCritic? It could be reviews, news, interviews or something else entirely. This is an opportunity for you to send in a CV and an example of your work (even if you’ve never written professionally before) and I will personally consider all applications.
I got my break in music journalism by writing for the biggest hip hop review site in the world, and have been there for half a decade now. Whilst I will continue there, I wish to take the knowledge and help push the Burban scene forward – fortunately, SuperCritic has been the best site around for critically assessing all things Burban, and this will only grow.
The praise the site received on the Burban Wikipedia entry was spot on. This is the first site of its kind, and I want to help push it on to the next level. Interesting stat: in 2011, the site grew in popularity by almost 1000% (yes, a thousand) and we wish to do even better now.
Since there are reviews of my own work already on SuperCritic, I’ve made the executive decision to take them down as a clear conflict of interest would arise. I’m also sticking to the hip hop reviews, and leaving the Burban and Bhangra side to the existing/future writers.
As owner and chief editor, I thank you for coming to the site and if you have any suggestions on ways to improve it, please email your thoughts or CV to SuperCriticTV@gmail.com.
