In a recent interview with MTV Diddy said, "People have figured out the formula when they make records for radio, and DJs ain’t DJs no more. DJs don’t break records no more. DJs don’t play album cuts. DJs play what is going to move the crowd. DJs, they don’t expose you to the newness. That was the DJs’ thing. Hip-hop is in a recession also.”

Mr. Chestnut, you couldn't of said it any better. People are afraid to make their own lane and thats's the problem!

Mr. Chestnut said:
Personally, I think that every artist and DJ has their own agendas. We are in a new day and age. So if you know how to promote your record and treat people with a great deal of respect to assist you, don't cry about it, be about it. Find another class or unit willing to assist you or form your own crew of noble technicians and media personnel. What I have found out to be shocking and sad is the fact that you will find people of other nationalities and races willing to help you quicker than your own race regardless of your sex or gender. Some DJ's and executives just have an uncureable case of a new form of cancer and arthiritis of the hands and wrist...I call it .........Realtalenthateritis.... or RTH!

Hey, I was asked a question just yesterday at a seminar..., Mr. Chestnut with the economy being the way it is today, what is the purpose of a DJ Pool for aspiring artists or labels who are unsigned or signed and have a budget? What can they do to help me today..? How can I get in contact with them when no one returns our phone calls to help us?

To me this is what's effecting our economy and urban communities on top of killing HIP HOP and the culture and making the founders of this gift very upset and dissappointed...because of poor business practices from regular human beings who feel they are God's gift because they have an accredited position in the music and entertainment industry or finally apart of something and too selfish to help someone else reach their dream. My advice to all executives, DJ's, etc.....never under estimate a persons worth, please fix your business practices and don't be afraid to create your own lane.

You just might get that blessing you have been looking for! Stand Up For What You Like and Run It! The Money Will come back to you 10 fold if you really love doing what you do for God first, he is the creator of music. Start showing him some respect you will be amazed at the doors he will open for you if you share your gift of spinning new hot music and artists with a purpose. To those of you that this does not apply thank you for being professional and original!

I personally feel that DJ's play very safe. If it's a hit they play it. Do that make you a "GREAT" dj or a a safe DJ? When I DJ on the radio or at a club I always look to break records. Whats the purpose of us being in record pools and purchasing albums. And when I break new music and see the crowd slowly dispearsing I never hit the panic button and quickly throw on Cupid Shuffle or a Fatman Scoop track to save the crowd. HAHAHA.
The DJ has always been the backbone of Hip Hop. Hip Hop is a little watered down, but you can't just put it on all djay's. Some blame has to go to some record labels to some degree. I mean you hear what's on the radio. The Djay is playing what he's told to play at least I'd like to think that.So to some degree Diddy is right. The formula for getting spins is sit at home and come up with craziest dance and boom you in there. Me personally I wish djay's would break more local MC's. As my man KRS says people think record sales make you the dopest therefore it gets played. That's BiggTodd's stand what's yours?
the djs have changed the era from making the crowd listen to wack to making the crowd have an option to hear brand new hot music from across the globe. so fake artiste are gonna be wiped outand the big labels goin be signing tight futuristic musiccians, saving them a lot of trouble.
TRUE AS A FUCK..FAM

I agree with Diddy to the extent tht dj's don't BREAK records NO MORE!! It seems 2 be MORE followers instead of leaders..meaning.. many don't have their OWN mind!! They gotta wait 2 follow the Leader..Oh if the Most popular dj is playing it.. than I'mma play it too.. If the label cuts a check then I'm on it.. There is a lot of GREAT music that gets ignored if there isnt a major cosign behind the ARTIST or the record!! Newness is great!! Be a leader Not a follower.,.,
I agree with Diddy to a point. Let's face the truth, there are plenty of stations and DJs that will not play anything outside of the BOX. When you break it all the way down you got artists who make whack ish connected to DJs with big names that put them on, but ther are also DJs who strive to find that next hit. It's just who's perception of what a hit record is these days. In my perception a radio hit doesn't even matter anymore, cause with the availability of the internet people and good DJs will seek out the good music. This gets me to the programm directors and radio. Radio is now a gift and a curse. They play all of this bubble gum ish cause they are feed it by these big labels, but they also give DJs an opportunity to get artists out there in the way of mixshows. Even if you do not have a song that PDs support, if you get it in the mixshow and people like it the record will eventually break based on listeners feedback, which means that this is the kind of music that will have staying power. AS CLUB/MIXSHOW DJS WE ARE AT FAULT FOR BEGINNING THINKING LIKE PROGRAM DIRECTORS AND SIMPLY PASSING ON WHAT WE JUST GOT FEED FROM THE RECORD LABELS WITHOUT PUTTING THE MUSIC THROUGH THE SMELL TEST. We definitely are part of blame.

Lets be honest. DJs created situations for artists to have an outlet. In recent years artists have gotten lazy and the content of their records has become predictable. with that said there has been a split.. DJs have conceeded their creativity for a quick buck and artists have dumbed themselves down for ringtone record spins.

i dont totally blame the artists for talkin greasy like they have been. DJs have allowed them to feel comfortable with dissin DJs. If DJs spoke up about it then they would think twice before goin @ DJs for no reason. As a part of Core I have seen the influence that a DJ community has on the artists in the industry. We harvest GOOD MUSIC. If the shit is wack it dont deserve spins. Simple as that. Diddy didnt surprise me but I was disappointed because Bad Boy has been a part of our retreats since the beginning. So he cant be referring to all DJs. I should hope not. It is funny how when fuckas get in front of the media and wanna say something cute, its something fucked up about DJs . this coming from someone who signs an artist and drops one every other week not to mention changes his name once a year.

Ive been spinnin since 88. This pussy whipped no talent ass industry cant handle real DJs so they hire and manufacture DJs who will spin dumb shit on the air and in the clubs for the right price. I aint mad @ Diddy. Im just not honoring mufafkaz gettin comfortable with shittin on my craft because they lame asses runnin out of club songs

Speak Yo Clout

NOW WHAT SINCE DOES THIS MAKE.WHY DO INDIE GOTTA GO THREW THAT MUCH BS TO GET A RECORD SPUN..
ITS LIKE YOU HAVE MAKE MUSIC FOR THE DJ AND NOT FOR THE PEOPLE..CAUSE IF THE DJ DONT LIKE IT THEN YOU MIGHT AS WELL SAY FUCK IT.AND GO TO THE NEXT ONE.

BUT THEN YOU HAVE SPENT MONEY TIME WHICH IS A WAIST.I REMEMBER WHEN DJS WERE REAL MF GAMBLERS I MEAN.REAL I DONT GIVE A FUCK DJS..."IM PLAYING THIS SHIT CAUSE I THINK ITS GOT A SHOT AT SOMTHING BIG AND I WANT TO BE THE MF TO SAY I BROKE THAT RECORD"!!!!!!

ALOT OF DJS IS FANS TO ONLY THE HOT NIGGAS,THEY DONT WANT TO HEAR SHIT AN INDIE GOTTA SAY..FLATOUT...
YOU KNOW "NIGGA YOU AINT,GUCCI,WAYNE,ROSS,JAY I AINT PLAYIN IT" OR SOME NIGGA THAT FEEDIN THE DJ THEN OF COARSE THEY HOT CAUSE YOU WERE THEY T SHIRT AND ALL THEY LIL GIFTS LIKE A BITCH..

LAST BUT NOT LEAST I DID A EMAIL BLAST TO ALOT OF RECORD POOLS..AND SOME OF THE RESPONSE I GOT BACK MADE ME WANT TO PUT A PRICE ON THEY HEAD FOR THAT BS!

I JUST FEEL LIKE DJS HAVE FAITH IN YA INDIE AND TAKE THAT CHANCE,BECAUSE THE MORE CHANCES YOU TAKE THE MORE MF WILL FUCK WITH YOU AND THE MORE FAKE WILL SHAKE FROM YOU..SO THEN WHEN OR IF YOU WANNA HOST A MIXTAPE.NIGGAS WILL SPEND AND BUY..I WISH I COULD FIND A DJ IN MY CITY THAT WOULD TAKE A CHANCE OR OUT OF MY CITY ON US!

DJS! WE WILL DO BETTER IF YOU WOULD LET US...NIGGAS GIVE YOU THE SAME SHIT CAUSE YOU PLAY THE SAME SHIT..THATS IT
i think hes right. DJ'S in my city for the most part dont break records unless 1)your're their friend 2)you pay them 3) they think your bout to blow and will take them with you. its sad but im just happy for the few we got that are still traditional DJ'S and break records if ya shits hot they play em but thats rare and inbetween
WHO THE HELL IS DIDDY TO SPEAK? HAD ONE OF THE MOST ILLEST ARTIST SIGNED TO HIM. DOZENS OF HOT ACTS AND PLATINUM ACTS. WHERE ARE THEY ALL NOW? HE DON'T COUNT IN ANYTHING ANYMORE, THE ARROGANT S.O.B. YO, DIDDY, UR THE SELL OUT!!
BESIDES DJ'S DO THEIR JOB. THEY SPIN TODAY'S ARTIST AS WELL AS YESTERDAY'S ARTIST. THE DJ POOLS MIGHT NOT BE AS STRONG AS IT USE TO BE. BUT GO TO A CLUB AROUND THE WORLD AND YOU WILL HEAR BREAK THROUGH ARTIST, HARDCORE ARTIST AS WELL AS MAINSTREAM ARTISTS GET THEIR SPINS. DIDDY IS A CORN BALL......DON'T BELIEVE THE HYPE.
