    I found out a buddy of mine has a really cool domain that he hasn't done anything with for over 10 years. The name is Hiphopchannel(dot)com

    I want to buy the domain from him but I don't know what to do with it. Anyone have ideas for this domain?

    Thanks!

    Nice domain. I guess like a hiphop news type site - latest news in hiphop industry, bios, interviews etc.??

    well the obvious thing to do is set up a music video site. I run one myself, you can add adsense or any other ads on there
    If you use a theme like this http://labs3.kentooz.com/tuberuk/
    It's a good theme and costs about $15, easy to use and customize.

    That's a great way to get hit by the DMCA.

    yes your right, bit risky that. if OP wants to build a long term site then best to stay legal. Many in the music industry use web sherrif

    I would create a brand, using facebook and instagram. Target hiphop fans. Sell eventually t shirts with teespring or something. With a domain like that that should not be so hard, I think, when it's done right. Do you have any experience at all?

    Good Idea! I'm not very experienced. I'm an engineer. However, I am really interested in SEO and IM. I'm very willing to learn!

    Yeah, I wasn't looking to do anything illegal with this site. Do you think this domain has potential?

    Maybe get this script and make a hip hop spotify type site:

    You should have a hip hop news related website but heres the twist.

    You are mostly going to post fight videos, shocking racism vids, memes, and hot girls.

    You can always buy the domain and put it up for bid.

    To be honest I have no idea how this particular scene works. But there are plenty money making topics or journeys on this forum which can educate you in a way which you can use for this website. Just compare a few things, combine them, and rock. There is not a real guide but just try one thing and go for it..

    edit: try to spend some time on this forum for quite a while and you'll understand. But you need to start trying and experiencing things otherwise it won't become anything at all.
