Why Am I Not Playing Jay Electronica on HOT 97
December 27th, 2009 | By DJ Enuff
I’m listening to Jay Electronica’s latest tune Exhibit C Produced by Just Blaze. It is so good. I think it’s lyrical and the production is solid. Reminds me of some early Nas stuff,Then I ask my self : Why is it not spinning on the radio? At least during my time slot? Is it because there’s no dance tied to it? Is it because it’s not yet on BET’s Top Ten Countdown? Does it have to be a Club Banger? The radio isn’t a club. So why not Good solid Hip Hop? I have it on my website. I battle myself all the time when it comes to the radio. The job I love so much. I could make it the Heavy Hitter Pick of the week with no problem. Then what? I need HELP with this one. Any Suggestions Re: Real Hip Hop is Fading
Furthermore: I think people are getting it a little twisted. Enuff isn’t saying he is not going to play the song. More rhetorical; he’s confused as to why he hasn’t been already. What he’s saying is, after he plays the song and makes it the Heavy Hitter song of the week. Then what? That’s where the listeners, the fans, the lovers of good from the ground up hip hop, the jaded music industry cats, the know it all hipsters and down players, and you make the difference; by buying music they/you like, and casting their/your vote with their/your dollar. This is a good ol’ George Bush first term rigged American Democracy, but you can’t not vote just because the odds are stacked against you.
All of you goin’ hard at DJ Enuff, need to read a little more closely, and realise he just tried to open up dialogue a bit and get the people mobilized. Nation! You wrong for how you titled that Enuff post in Nah Right Lite!
