The former Music Editor of The Source (1996-1998) and Editor-in-Chief of XXL (1999-2008) is now preparing for the exciting launch of his official website, RapRadar.com.

Boss Lady (a former E-I-C herself, who founded Australia’s most successful on-sale hip-hop and R&B magazine, Urban Hitz, in 2003) sat down with Elliott for a colorful chat about RapRadar.com, his influence on younger hip-hop writers, his thoughts on Russell Simmons‘ recent announcement of becoming “editor in chief” of GlobalGrind.com, his close relationship with Jay-Z and upcoming role as Jay’s biographer, and the arrival of the “Flip Cam Rap Era”.

Check it out and let us know your thoughts! RapRadar.com launches March 9th, 2009.
