My last resort is online forums. My first resort is people, history and real life experience.
My education/upbringing in Hip Hop came from:
Real Life: visiting radio shows, collecting at record fairs and record stores, going to concerts, absorbing my neighborhood culture and trading music with family members, friends
Listening To Radio: find some shows based on what you like, it's a good, fun and quick way to learn. Nowadays you can use podcasts and other people's playlist on You Tube
Reading: You can still buy magazines if you want, most of them are online more than newsstands. I like Wax Poetics, XXL
Online Search: Choose wisely and be objective based on your experience from using the ways of learning listed above. Choose a source that is doing it for the love and no pay (ex: Stretch & Bobbito) before choosing a source that is corporate controlled and making their decisions based on a check (ex: Hot 97)
