First and foremost, Interscope artists aren't doing sh*t anyways. But according to Funk
Dick Rider Master Flex, Hot 97 is boycotting any music coming from Interscope. Which means Eminem gets no airplay. Dr. Dre gets no airplay-- if he ever drops his album.
"Understand it, Interscope Records, nothin is spinnin." Says Flex.
Great. This means no more Soulja Boy.
"Nino [Nello], you got 24 hours to fix yourself!" says Flex. "Or this goes some place else tomorrow!"
That was last night. Apparently, there's a head at Interscope who makes some heavy decisions, and this dude Nino has rubbed off on not only Flex wrong, but some others at Hot 97 as well. Because according to Flex, there are "people who control the music business. And they control certain artists that they do not want you to see. But they want the pop stations to have. That's where I come in. I'm the dude they pull out the closet to deal with this."
And Power 105.1 isn't playing any rap music. So whatever Interscope rap artist is in need of airplay better get that "money" right.
Not that I give a damn. I think I listen to the radio once in a blue just to see what they're playing. But then you can just go on the station's website and check the playlist for that. Not surprised at what I saw in the top 20. If that's what Hot calls "rap music," then I guess they're right... it sure isn't hip-hop." I'll make an exception for the mix-show DJs.
For the sake of money issues, I guarantee all will be well by "4 o'clock" today, before the Summer Jam announcement.
