GetAtMe Whats Beef? Social media has to quit being the lighter fluid for attention seeking stupidity...#FRFR

GetAtMe Whats Beef?  Social media has to quit being the lighter fluid for attention seeking stupidity...#FRFR | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

What's beef?  Beef is when you need two gats to go to sleep

Beef is when your moms ain't safe up in the streets

Beef is when I see you

Guaranteed to be in ICU, one more time

What's beef?  Beef is when you make your enemies start your Jeep

Beef is when you roll no less than thirty deep

Beef is when I see you

Guaranteed to be in ICU, check it (The Notorious BIG)

 

Who is Tomi Lahren (exactly)?  Another talking head in the world of conservative politicized attention seeking, and before her rant about Beyonce’s Superbowl performance, she was just another element of white noise (excuse the pun) that comes out of that area of media politicized information.  Just another voice in the wind.

But social media may have given her relevance by allowing her to use a rap beef strategy to gain celebrity.  Now this is nothing new.  Donald Trump is running a whole campaign using rap beef strategies and what’s crazy is that it’s working.  Here’s the bad part, rap beef strategies were developed out of an entertainment escape moment, nothing to be taken seriously and definitely nothing to be used to politicize foolish attention seeking agendas.  As a matter of fact, when a certain rap beef grew so big, 2 hiphop legends got killed (and to this day there are those who still use these deaths to get attention).  Didn’t we learn anything?  I guess not.

Look Fox News is built off this kind of foolishness but social media has to make sure we are not the accelerant for a social explosion that when it blows up that all the talking heads run for cover in their gated communities (really like Rush Limbaugh or Glenn Beck is gonna fight anyone).  At its simplest this behavior is wreckless, at its worst, conspiratorial (but really y it’s just dumb)

Ms Lahren has a right to speak her mind, as did Beyonce.  What’s the real issue is Ms Lahren and Beyonce are using social media for an unconscious attention seeking moment and will either of them be in the streets if it goes bad or will they both be hiding in their building that’s being guarded by an underpaid doorman.

What’s real?  Social media shouldn’t used as a lighter fluid or distraction.   What’s funny is that more people gave this trending attention in the urban community than the presidential election New Hampshire primary (now that couldn’t have been the goal of Ms Lahren, that would have taken thought and responsibility).  Let’s keep entertainment, entertainment (that goes to you also Mr. Trump because as you saw with the Funny and Die spoof, that sword is sharp on both sides and they have just gotten started) and quit teetering on the dangerous practice of using distraction tactics to inspire those who are just trying to be entertained into being the crowd mob for some people’s personal attention seeking gain.

Rap Beefs are great for the hiphop media business but it’s still a dumb idea.  It’s even dumber in the social and political arenas.  “Ideas are small electrical charges that don’t stand up in the court of reality…”  Dean Martin.  Mr. Martin that was and is so true.

GetAtMe Urban Airplay Scorecard 2/10/2016 Rihanna's 'WORK' is #1... #Work

GetAtMe Urban Airplay Scorecard 2/10/2016 Rihanna's 'WORK' is #1... #Work | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Ok here’s this week GetAtMe Urban Airplay Scorecard (the cuts that have the most increases in airplay in urban radio this week and their sales on itunes).  Radio play vs sales is a key indicator to a songs real value in the market (a lot of airplay and no sales usually means that the song was more of an industry push…).  Here this week’s stats.

  • Rihanna’s ‘WORK’ went straight to the top with 595 spin increases and is num3 on itunes…
  • Drake’s ‘SUMMER SIXTEEN’ came in at num2 with 332 spin increases and hit num26 on itunes…
  • Jerimih’s ‘OUI’ is num3 with 330 spin increases…
  • Young Thug’s ‘BEST FRIEND’ had 275 spin increases (still hanging in there) and hit the top 100 on itunes…
  • DjLukeNasty ‘MIGHT BE’ had 275 spin increases but still hasn’t hit the itunes top 200…

This week urban radio and itunes were really in sync.  It’s always better that urban radio plays what’s selling as opposed to just playing new cuts to early.  “You can always be early on a dog but you can never be late on a hit…”  Urban radio has to show it can sell music (its core footprint) before it say it can sell anything else. (houses, cars, clothes ect)

GetAtMe Ciara says "enough is enough" sues Future for 15Million is a libel suit... #JudgeJudyWhereYouAt

GetAtMe Ciara says "enough is enough" sues Future for 15Million is a libel suit... #JudgeJudyWhereYouAt | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Ciara has said enough is enough.   In a well written (very well written) lawsuit, Ciara has let Future know that she’s done playing with him.  $15 Million is the pricetag for that mouth (since he said he spends $15,000.00 a month on child support.  That’s gonna be easy to prove...).

The Ciara/Future feud is finally gonna land in court and it seems that Ciara legal team is done with the games.  Why Future wouldn’t think that if his ex was going with a millionaire NFL football player who just got a multimillion dollar deal with Nike whose team owner is a billionaire business owner with one of the largest computer companies in the world was not going to have access to multimillion dollar legal advice is just stunning to me.

Whelp now them folks are in it, oh well

GetAtMe HotNewHit Nelly 'DIE A HAPPY MAN' This one's a hit... Score 54pts grade B #DidISayThisWasAGreatSong

GetAtMe HotNewHit Nelly 'DIE A HAPPY MAN'  This one's a hit... Score 54pts grade B #DidISayThisWasAGreatSong | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Man sometimes when I get these cuts I have no idea what to expect, but I always love it when I get a new and creative song.  Man this new Nelly is hot.  Nelly’s has done a cover of Thomas Rhett’s ‘DIE A HAPPY MAN’ and boy is it hot.  This is a flat out great song (is Nelly setting himself up to be the Lionel Richie of HIP POP?  Notice I said HIP POP).  Here’s the stats:

  • TRACK- This track opens well (intro sound like ‘SAME LOVE’ MACKLEMORE…) and the energy is cool (very mellow).  The break is the killer although (great hook but that’s country) and the song is just strong…  SCORE 18pts (out of 20pts) grade A
  • DEMOGRAPHIC- This cut is gonna test the boundaries of hiphop (that’s why I said It was HIP POP).  If Macklemore did this song it would be a no brainer.  Will hip hop except Nelly on this hit song (we already know HIP POP will…)? SCORE 9pts grade C
  • MARKET- of course this isn’t a traditionally street track for djs but the streets with the POP fan base are gonna love this track.  It will carry over into online (mixtapes will be in the air) and urban radio will wait and see (Pop radio and rhythmic should be all over this one #DidISayThisWasAGreatSong) SCORE 9pts grade C
  • HITFACTOR- Nelly is really developing a strong pop fanbase and all signals point to this one doing well.  The track is strong, the performance is great and the song is strong with already strong retail numbers. SCORE 18pts grade A
  • TOTAL 54pts (out of 80 pts) this cut gets a strong B.  This is a strong POP cut and it will be interesting to see how the POP world and HipHop reacts to this great hybrid of a record and music genres.

GetAtMe MC Eiht vladtv interview about 2Pacs death "You could've been here and left a bigger mark..."

GetAtMe MC Eiht vladtv interview about 2Pacs death "You could've been here and left a bigger mark..." | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

This was a great interview with MC Eiht on VLADTV.  Honest and truthful is all I can say.  Sometimes the truth is just that simple and folks put in their head, “it has to be more…”  Sometimes bad things happen, period point blank.

MC Eiht goes in depth about maybe Pac was in a place and arena that necessarily he didn’t have to be.  He had gone too far in life and maybe the others who were around him hadn’t gone far enough (which more often than not is the case in street vs reality situations).  A very honest and sincere interview from a very grown perspective.  Why is this type of interview the exception and not the rule in HipHop?

GetAtMe GoodBye Mr White and thank you for the music... Maurice White R.I.P. 'KEEP YOU HEAD TO THE SKY'

GetAtMe GoodBye Mr White and thank you for the music... Maurice White R.I.P. 'KEEP YOU HEAD TO THE SKY' | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

In a day where we are on a day to day basis inundated with information about who did what silly in hiphop and what rapper is beefing with who knows who, we forget that this business is about entertainment and the music.

Maurice White Passed on the 3rd of February and music has truly lost one of its giants (that could entertain and the music was always first).  He will be missed.  His music although from Earth Wind and Fire will be with us till the end of time.  Whether it’s ‘KEEP YOUR HEAD TO THE SKY’ or ‘REASONS’.  It could be ‘AFTER THE LOVE IS GONE’ or ‘LOVERS HOLIDAY’.  It could be ‘FANTASY’ or ‘BOOGIE WONDERLAND’.  Somewhere someone will be playing an Earth Wind and Fire song till the end of time (Like Beethoven…).  Someone will be enjoying the essence of this man’s music.

White’s music was a mystical blend of great musicianship, spiritualism and extraterrestrial existentialism combined with an exciting stage show with great performers and musician that to this day no one has matched its impact on the soul of the music and the soul of his music fans.  Like I said, Maurice White was a giant in mentality in a world of little man thinking in the music business and culture.  He will be missed.

Mr. White, I will ‘KEEP MY HEAD TO THE SKY”

Maurice White R.I.P.

GetAtMe Whats really going on with Tinashe? (I mean all the pieces are there...)

GetAtMe Whats really going on with Tinashe? (I mean all the pieces are there...) | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

From the very beginning we here at GetAtMe have always appreciated the artist Tinashe (we love the underdogs…).  We have always championed artist like Tinashe, Tink, Vanjess, Jessica Sanchez because they are special talents.  Tinashe and Tink are signed.  Jessica Sanchez is doing something with Interscope (we think) and Vanjess is still looking for that call from a label.  We got behind these act because they are strong.  Really Strong.

Tinashe blew up with the ‘2 ON’ cut and quite frankly, it’s a mystery why an artist with great chemistry, attractive, great music, solid fan base and talent is not in the same stratosphere as Fetty Wap.  I mean Tinashe has not only good product, she has the fire.  So what’s going on?

The cut she did with Chris Brown ‘PLAYER’ was solid and the new product is just as strong.  So what is it going to take for her to solidify herself as an artist?  She has all the tools and she has hits.  Only time will tell.  Is hiphop maybe holding Tinashe back?  Maybe, just maybe Tinashe is bigger than hiphop and the rest of the world knows that.  Like I said only time will tell.

It’s amazing that in the online hiphop threads and gossips sites, noone really focuses on her music (which is really good).  Its’ crazy that she’ll get more attention from this great complex cover (that’s really hot) and some will miss how special this young lady’s talent really is. 

Check out the cover article in Complex magazine for an in-depth look at this truly special talent.
