Fire Pick of the Week
November 18, 2019

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and the Rap Attack DJ’s.

What is good my Hip Hop friends!!?
Hope the week has treated you well. I got something brand new for ya!
We are talking about the duo of Jayson and Jamal, also known as The High Children. With yours truly as their DJ, along with help from DJ Neebor (Seattle), DJ Shiftee (NYC), D’Lemma and DJ Royboy (both KUBE 93.3 Seattle), EVMB The BeatBox Panda, American Idol's Rocky Sandoval, the crew is also comprised of super-producer Robbie Rob (Minneapolis, MN.), along with Fysah (Seattle) and J.J. (Seattle) doing vocals. Hotness always hits the streets. With Takeshia Seward on the vocals, the boys just released “Get That Money” (White Label).
With an intro from DJ 3rd Degree, the keys kick in along with the beat, making the listener nod their head right off the bat. Jamal, aka
Mr. E., takes the lead on the vocals, layin’ out how he gets that money. After the chorus, Jayson (aka Mr. Too Many Aka’s) lays down how he’s getting that scrilla. The verses, along with the vocals from Takeshia, really make this track stand out.
It is a rocker for the radios and the clubs!! Here is a link to the dope video, including an appearance from the one-and-only DJ Nasty Nes!

If you're up in Seattle on Saturday November, 23
rd,
come hang out with us at the
Massive Monkey’s studio!

Let us know what you need! We got ya!
Til next time . . . Peace!!

Since 2001, the U.S. Department of State has been sending hip hop artists abroad to perform and teach as goodwill ambassadors. There are good reasons for this: hip hop is known and loved across the globe, acknowledged and appreciated as a product of American culture. Hip hop has from its beginning been a means of creating community through artistic collaboration, fostering what hip hop artists call
building.

A timely study of U.S. diplomacy,
Build: The Power of Hip Hop Diplomacy in a Divided World reveals the power of art to bridge cultural divides, facilitate understanding, and express and heal trauma. Yet power is never single-edged, and the story of hip hop diplomacy is deeply fraught. Drawing from nearly 150 interviews with hip hop artists, diplomats, and others in more than 30 countries, Build explores the inescapable tensions and ambiguities in the relationship between art and the state, revealing the ethical complexities that lurk behind what might seem mere goodwill tours. Author Mark Katz makes the case that hip hop, at its best, can promote positive, productive international relations between people and nations. A U.S.-born art form that has become a voice of struggle and celebration worldwide, hip hop has the power to build global community when it is so desperately needed.

#ARTIST TIP OF THE DAY
by DJ ADDITION



If you do not know what Sound Exchange is, please — do your homework. They are basically a master-side collection society
for all the internet radio stations.
What if you, as an artist, send a song to an online radio station without an
ISRC code? Then the routing of the money earned on those plays is very, very unlikely to ever get back to you. Factor in publishing plus lack of knowledge about publishing and there are probably close to 100’s of Millions of dollars NOT distributed correctly.

Truly sad and disheartening,
as this is mostly for independent artists and songwriters.

Do your Research. Do your Homework.

WHO'S LEGIT TO HIRE TO PROMOTE YOUR MUSIC TO RADIO?
by DJ Addition

Here are some tips and suggestions when looking
for the right kind of promoter for you.
What are the key, definable attributes that matter most?

Networking skills: One of the most impressive elements of a good radio promoter is how well they can network. Experience is a key factor.
Check their reputation: Look around online at what other artists make of them. Search their name on social media and Google. Look for reviews on places like Linkedin. Having no reputation is often as bad as having a bad reputation.
You should hire the one that comes across from more than one source as a good, stand-up person. You don’t want to hire a promoter who lacks moral fiber.
Project updates: Do they give you analysis on feedback, actual playlists and charts, listening details, etc? If not, why not? It’s a major factor in your business. 
Reception: One of the most annoying attributes of a radio promoter is when they don’t pick up the phone. Try and call a few promoters. See how fast they respond. Do they respond at all? Are they are slow getting back to you when you are paying them? That’s a definite warning sign that you might want to look elsewhere.
A good promoter will latch on like a piranha when you give them the chance to work. If they are slowly taking the work on with the promise of payment, think how slow they will be when they have your money.
Don’t put yourself in this awkward position. Instead, look for a radio promoter that you know can be trusted.

The above points are major factors, but the last one is something you should think of when making any new connection. How well do you get on? Is there a rapport and a general connection? And most important — is there trust?
