GetAtMe Why is Wynton Marsalis upset with hiphop (grandad you're looking real unfamilier..." Riley Freeman Boondocks)

GetAtMe Why is Wynton Marsalis upset with hiphop (grandad you're looking real unfamilier..." Riley Freeman Boondocks) | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

It’s no secret that Wynton Marsalis dislikes hiphop and he probably should be classified as a traditionalist jazz supporter.  Wynton has often made it known as to his displeasure with hiphop as an art form.  He really hates the genre.  I’ll paraphrase it for you “Its trash… “in his opinion.

Mr Marsalis has a right to his opinion (which in most cases isn’t followed up with an alternative investment solution that works for the investors or the artist.  “That 2 cents means nothing if it’s not on the bill…” Big Sean)  It seems that Mr Marsalis is forgetting that hip hop is a business ( a profitable one at that…) that drives quick investments and quick returns and if hiphop businessmen start trying to dictate consumer taste as opposed to reacting to it, well they’ll go broke (as is the case with most RNB and Jazz artist when it come to consumer sales demand in today financial marketplace,,,)  Mr Marsalis hiphop investors have never hid that they were in it for the quick buck.  Most  of hiphop investors never committed to the sponsorship of the craft (the ones who did usually went broke…)  Why, because our primary buying (and I emphasize buying…) is young and unfortunately in an effort to define their own culture as a generation, Cussing and braggadocios behavior is likened to women burning bras for their voting right (I know the comparison is extreme but you get the point) and, they have a short attention span when it comes to entertainment (they have a lot of options…)  In hip hop it’s not a great idea to try to legislate taste because 1, you will go broke and 2, the kids will find another way to define themselves.  That is a natural progression of generations.

Here’s a novel idea, why don’t all like minded jazz traditionalist create hiphop/jazz genre that sells and invest their own money.  Spend money to support the product and put these evil guys at the labels out of work.  I’ll wait…

GetAtMe InDaMixxx ft Ella Mai BOO_UP #0020 (and more...)... #NowThatsAMix | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Dear Client

What’s up?  It took a moment for me to really decide what I wanted to put on this new InDaMixxx.  Marketing people have really sort of messed up the music handicapping game by pushing product (their job…) that’s not selling.  We as djs have to use sales as our hot gauge at the end of the day (well I do…) when we are really trying to gauge a songs hit potential.  Over the last few months there have been many great songs that won’t make it because of today’s music marketing environment (all the Toni Braxton product is hot…).  So I felt I had to create a separate mix where I could place this new product that was hot but the product lack Muscled (the streets and online…) and Juice (clubs and radio…)  I decided to use the InDaMixxx for this purpose (this decision took months but I’m glad I finally made the decision.

  • We started out the mix with a BeatMakanixxx djsinglemix Ella Mai BOO_D UP (great summer cut…) and then went into the Drake’s hit NICE FOR WHAT (strong dj cut…)
  • Then we mixed in the new BeatMakanixxx djsinglemix Nicki Minaj BARBIE TINGZ (this cut’s energy is crazy…) and we followed that with a BeatMakanixxx djsinglemix of the master drummer Sonny Emory (from Earth Wind and Fire and many other great artist) new cut I ADORE YOU (here you go Sonny…) I like doing this cut and the jazz grooves and dance beats really work…
  • As with all out InDaMixxx mixes we blend in the GetAtMe Anthem WHO’S THAT DJ AGAIN and then we bring in the new BeatMakanixxx cut I BELIEVE N U ft MarqDean (I believe the truth is out there…
  • We come out of that into a great mashup by Hi-Lo ft Alien Technology/Bodak/My Way (this mashup is hot…) and that is followed by the Janelle Monae classic SINCERELY JANE (bet yall never saw this one being a dance cut… #lsmh )
  • All the new Toni Braxton product is hot ( #frfr ) and that’s why we decided to do a djsinglemix on her new cut SEX AND CIGARETTES (djs are gonna love this cut…) and then we mix in our Cardi B mashup classic by the BeatMakanixxx I LIKE THAT/WHATS UP ( we told yall she was the truth and this mashup let djs know that also…)

That’s this edition of our GetAtMe InDaMixxx num 20

GetAtMe DiaryOfAHitMan Hitman Chronicles-  Why is hiphop accepting living a lie as the new truth...?

GetAtMe DiaryOfAHitMan Hitman Chronicles-  Why is hiphop accepting living a lie as the new truth...? | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Dear Client

There is a horrible lie being perpetuated in hiphop, “sales don’t matter…” (which is the dumbest shit I’ve ever heard.  Why be in business if you’re not selling something. That’s not a business, that’s a hobby…)  Hip Hop has caught a disease of silliness where marketing matters more than sales (“if we just keep saying it’s a hit then they will believe it”  Really they won’t…)  The lie in hip hop has become bigger than the business and now the lie is the business model (this has gotta stop, it’s killing the genre…).  Here’s the problem…

Kid’s (our core buyer…) usually don’t believe marketers (you can’t influence influencers that have been influenced by a budget.  It doesn’t work unless you’re a marketing company getting said budget…)  Real fans buy based on they want it first and they are real supporters of a certain artist and their lifestyle.  Real djs want it first to have bragging rights for breaking a song first (the real currency of influencers…) So it doesn’t matter how much you market if it’s not a hit with 1st impact buyers and 1st impact djs (that cater to 1st impact buyers)   When the air is not certain on a new song’s potential then the deciding factor becomes the songs sales (not streams.  That’s like getting credit for a test drive of a new car.  Oh they’re financing test drives now?)  Sales become the determinate of potential demand and fans true connectivity and adoption to a song (radio plays only draws attention to songs, like commercials, but fans only buys a song if they want it or want to support an artist…)  Buying (“I spent a $1.29”) is the true test of a songs market buoyancy, not whether they just like they song.  Let’s be real, if your potential buyer won’t spend $1.29 on your music, then that means you have some work to do.  Get to work.  Now here’s the lie “we’ll fake the sales numbers to trick fans into believing it’s a hit…”  I won’t even go into how dumb that is.  Who expects to get paid off of fake fans with fake money that fake that they are buying (you see the silliness here...) and later wonder why they are on behind the music (“they didn’t pay me…” #smh )

The reason James Brown became such a success is because his ticket prices were always affordable (for his time and James Brown himself made promoters keep the tickets affordable or he wouldn’t perform #GoodBusiness ) and that allowed him way more exposure so that fans could decide for themselves the magic of James Brown and his music.  It worked then and it will work for you today.   One thing about the truth, you know the accounting will be right…  The shortcut to fame is usually expensive if it’s built on a lie.  Remember there’s nothing wrong with the record business that a good record and great performance can’t cure…”

GetAtMe-  The best bet you can ever make in life is on yourself... #JustFacts

GetAtMe-  The best bet you can ever make in life is on yourself... #JustFacts | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

You know people bet everyday on something. Whether it’s on a game, or a job or clothes or even meeting a new person, a lot of thing we do on a daily basis is a gamble (take that from a gambler…)  Safe gambles pay low rewards as opposed to riskier gambles paying high rewards.  The reason most people fail at gambling is because if you lack faith in something, then you will guess at the outcome and guessing usually lead to a choice with low risk intelligence because a person didn’t understand the odds in that specific bet..  Don’t spend your life guessing at what comes next.  Live on purpose and bet on yourself.  It’s the best bet you will ever make…

GetAtMe FriendsWithBenefits Ella Mai BOO'D UP/ Parker Mckenna Posey (damn lil Kady done growed up...) | GetAtMe | Scoop.it

Well damn, Lil Kady done growed up (I know that’s crazy right...)  Yep this is that sweet lil girl that was on the show MY WIFE AND KIDS (the baby…)  Parker is all grown now and you can follow her on IG @parkermckennaaa. It’s crazy to remember her as the baby on the show (boy how does time fly…)

She’s our GetAtMe FriendsWithBenefits this week on the Ella Mai song Boo’d Up (clearly this spring’s hot new groove…)  This cut already has urban radio in motion and that’s gonna translate into the streets, online and the clubs.  Remember, “there’s nothing wrong with the record business that a good record can’t cure…”
