The wait is over, the much-anticipated bling47 site that has been going through some rewamping has finally launched yesterday. My friends, Waajeed (PPP) and Jackie O founded the site back in 2001, and eventually got Kenny Fresh (who later founded his own, by now popular music site, Freshselect) on board...I remember following the site few years back when Waajeed's band the Platinum Pied Pipers came out with their first album. Waajeed is from Detroit, and was a close friend of J Dilla and used to tour with Slum Village, so bling 47 was also a home for super exclusive Dilla joints. There is more where it came from...check out for instance this unreleased Ray J remix and the story behind it here.
