Binyameen Friedberg, who created the website, “Tha Threshold,” is a high school student. He originally made the site for his friends who like music and graffiti. But within only 8 months it became a small business.

It links to many hip-hop sites, and it also sells demo tapes from independent artists, [Hieroglyphics] and features a chat forum.

Binyameen says he is very happy that he was able to start this website while in high school, and he will continue to work and improve the site even when he attends university next year.
