Old DJ's vs. New DJ's [Video]



This brother is right on point! Don't get me wrong I 100% respect Dj's who spin vinyl and enjoy the vintage sound and feel myself. I understand how old school Dj's feel. Shit I'd be pissed if I had to carry around heavy ass crates, turntables, speakers etc. However, bashing or calling DJ's of the Digital era fake because they don't use vinyl does not make you a better DJ. It makes you a bitter DJ (Wham, Wham). No matter what the situation - putting someone down never makes you any better. Instead try extending a hand. I never want the art of Djing to dissipate so it's vital that all Dj's unite no matter the method of expression. If you are passionate about the art the skill will follow. So to all the veteran Dj's stop it. Get off your high horse and understand things evolve but that doesn't mean you have to.

Angie Martinez Interview on Power 105.1


I have to admit. I was a little upset when I first heard "the voice of New York", longtime radio personality, Angie Martinez was departing from Hot 97. She is a part of Hip-Hop history and I can't imagine her not being on radio. Her leaving felt like the end of an era; then the bomb dropped! She was  leaving only to go to the rival station, Power 105.1. Is it about better opportunities and brighter horizons or more money or both. Either way it's BUSINESS and I respect that she handled hers. Can't wait to see her next move. It ain't easy leaving behind something you've know for sooo long... #Salute2Angie #LivingLegend

[Video] Ab-Soul "Closure"



First let me say I am really diggin TDE's entire movement - on some real Psychedelic, space age type   shit. I don't just listen to music, I study music. I study the artist and Ab-Soul is most definitely on my radar as are the rest of the TDE artists. Much deeper than what meets eyes.., #PaidAttention. As we await Ab-Soul's much anticipated album "These Days" due to drop June 24th the visuals are a perfect tease... - Dj Nia Boom
