    RSS feeds are XML files. Unless you want to hard code them (very doubtful), you need a way to grab information (i.e. from database) and output an RSS file with the data in the appropriate tags. The URL for your first site is
    http://everythinghiphop.ning.com/profiles/blog/feed?promoted=1&xn_auth=no&key=99ea332a6d16bef6f3333e3d80b9f5f5
    the key value looks a bit funky, but AFAIK, thats what you should use in your feedreader etc.

    For the other 2 sites, I suggest you find some kind of plugin/widget/application that can periodically get the info and output it as RSS feeds, unless you're good at writing your own code.

    BTW, the link in your sig is missing the "hop".
