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.”

You hit the nail right on the head!!! The recession had a lot to do with it, and you can't blame them because the family has to eat. But we have to give the new generation a chance and hear them out, even though there's a lot of music I rather not hear.

Take a Risk!

The entire music business is in a recession and the ultimate reason is that everyone is chasing money instead of chasing good music. Everyone is afraid to do "their thang", so everyone just follow suit and play it safe. That is why djs dont break album cuts, they just follow suit and play the "hot" or in my opinion "the not so hot" songs that everyone else is playing. Someone needs to stand up, be their own man and play what they feel is good music, not just what everyone else is playing. A&Rs need to do the same thing. DO NOT BE AFRAID TO GO OUT ON YOUR GUT and sign someone you feel is hot. Dont just look at numbers and say "Well, since that song did good, ima try to find someone that has a song like that!!" FIND THE NEXT HOT SONG!!! But, like I said everyone is chasing money and afraid of losing their jobs so they just follow suit and play it safe. But if someone dont take a stand, people will lose their jobs anyway because the public is tired of the same old BS the record industry is giving them. Thats why the people dont buy records anymore. We need better music. We need DJs and A&Rs to find and break this music, dont just follow suit with whats out there, because the people dont like whats out there!
I'm feeling that conversation!
fuck what diddy, talkin about. if your music is wacked, i want play it. thats whats wrong now wit the music. they play all that bull shit music on the radio, and exspect djs 2 play the garbage. big ups 2 dedaman.
check us out we are coming to bring hip hop out of its recession

Official #HnF Anthem "We Fly Highhhhh" ....

i guess the matter is its money over music. some people lost that same feeling to when they just started playing music or rapping or wtv the case. back then people would buss there ass to get there demo played and such hustle on the street to be heard. now the world has moved n the internet has taken over so ppl have gotten very lazy. and yes so some parts djs follow way to much then they should follow themselfs. a dj is here to rock the crowd promote new music n to make the ppl let loose. WTV happen to that feeling of jus feeling the music
ok let's sum it up!!! CERTAIN dj's do NOT break records because they only FOLLOW! These are dj's with limited knowledge of music or how to break new music. THEN, there are other DJ'S that only break music when they're "taken care of!" and THEY KNOW WHO THEY ARE!!! And if you are supporting these DJ'S, you along with them are GUILTY! Now, the real situation on top of all that is this: The labels control radio, which now has told lots of mixshow dj's to use songs only on their playlist!!! These songs have been "promoted" to the station via the labels, thru indi promoters, to the pds & mds, down to the mixshow dj's. DJ's that DON'T follow suit are either fired or re-assigned to play old school mixes, and there's a playlist of old school songs at that!!!

Listen to radio stations in markets competing against each other. The same songs play almost at the same time, on both urban and pop stations!!! Now that BDS has changed the way songs are added to stations,SOME DJ's are told to play ONLY what the station approves.

So, to DIDDY, the labels,the corporations that own the stations, any ANYONE ELSE that thinks it's ok to disrespect DJ'S....there's where the REAL fault or blame lies. Diddy, along with ANY artists/labels, etc. should FIRST look for DJ's that have SOME freedom to play what they wish, of course within the station's boundaries so they DON'T get fired. To lump ALL dj's in this is ignorant.
DJ'S PLAY MUSIC WILL ALWAYS BE IN THAT FORUMLA

"I think Diddy is correct but a little off to the left. At the end of the day, a DJ can still and always will have the power to make or brake an artist or band, provided that DJ is a powerhouse like a lot of the Mainstream DJ's that are members of the "Core" family. You cannot take anything away from DJ's at all in my opinion, the equivalent to me is liken unto, disrespecting your chef; he's cooking the food you eat. Every entertainment exec needs D.J.'s to bring thier artist to the forefront. Without DJ's the industry would be worthless." On the otherhand, DJ's have become so arrogant, and thugs. A lot of DJ's fall in that catergory unfortunately. The facts are as follows: 1. Radio broadcasters NEED advertisers to make money. 2. Radio stations NEED to attract listners according to thier brand of broadcasting so they can get advertisers in order to make money. 3. DJ's need quality content in their aired programs 24-7. With that being said, we do need each other execs, radio, and artist. There really is no BIG "I's" and little "you's", we're in this game together.
