9 years ago this forum was created.
8 years ago a little Google search led me to this forum.
I was 15 years old. Now I am 23.
Been through so much in life, and and when I was young, TR was always here to support me when I just closed myself in my room and spent my time on the computer. That's why I grew so passionate about TR and didn't want it to die. Plus there were so many awesome members here.
If I was on the internet, I'd be on TR at the same time. I was in school... Fuck school, lemme check TR on my mobile instead. At work I'd be the cashier and at the same time (while there were no customers) argue with members because I did some Admin work they disagreed with. I've even had my private pictures released and photoshopped on SL because of this.
TR improved my English, helped me with my homeworks, taught me about other people in the world, and so much more. The greatest thing here was to witness and participate in the discussion of the release of The Re-Up, Relapse, Relapse Refill, Recovery, H:TS and MMLP2.
If there is one thing I never thought, it was that I'd meet several TR members. One of my long life dreams were to go to Las Vegas. I didn't think it'd happen before I was like 26-27, but last year I visited Las Vegas for two weeks. With who, you ask? A TR member (C-Riz).
And who can forget what happened in 2012... I went to London with my homie Trimss to see Hopsin. Even met him and his crew. Met the owner of this forum for the first time. Cool guy. Had a sub and some drinks with him.
I also fulfilled another life long dream last year. And many members here share(d) the same dream; seeing Eminem live.
Planned with Trimss and Lello, and although Trimss didn't show up (faggot), I still had fun by meeting up with Lello and his friend. After the concert (which was awesome as fuck btw), we met up with Rollefsen and his friends.
I have even met TheGentlePlayer couple times. He lives like 5-10 minutes away from me.
When I created this thread, I wasn't expecting to say much, just shout some member out, but here we are... Luckily I didn't write my whole life story, lol. If you do wanna read my life story, you can read the TR version of it here viewtopic.php?f=29&t=90502
Seeing this forum getting closed will be so weird. For the first time in 8 years, I'll have to remove "View Active Topics" from my bookmark. No more writing "TR" on the search bar on my mobile and then touch the link that pops up. Now I have to get used to write "Hip" to get to HHS.
I am trying to stop writing more, but I keep writing, goddamn it. I feel like shouting out all the people I've had some form of friendship with and talked to a lot, but there are sooooooo many to mention. If I had joined like only 3-4 years ago, it wouldn't be a problem, but 8 years? C'mon son. I'm already an old man. Shit, some of you have seen me go from being a 15 year old to a married 23 year old. Fuck.
Shoutout to all the people on TR I've been in touch with since the big bang, and a special shoutout to TRshady for this forum, and to Notalius for creating HipHopShelter. That forum is gonna be beast, man. My ears don't lie to me.
Special shoutout to my Whatsapp niggas | Facebook niggas | Skype niggas (oh wait, I have none except TR and Noddy) | Football thread niggas | The Ass Thread niggas | The whole motherfucking Shady Staff niggas | SacJb for all the money you gave me in 2009 and some this year | Revolutionary for all the fucking arguments we've had in the football thread throughout the years. I love you, man. |
Hopefully I'll see most of you guys on HipHopShelter
Umm, I guess that's it.
It's been real.
Now that I look back at this post, I can't believe I wrote this much, but it's typical me
