DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
Week of January 14, 2019

Happy 2019!


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

This year, we get to listen to dope new music from
one of Philly’s finest MC’s,
Black Thought.
Released on November 26, 2018, Black Thought, the Roots lead rapper, along with producer-extraordinaire Salaam Remi (Nas, Miguel, The Fugees), gifted us with “Streams Of Thought Vol. 2” (Passyunk Records/Human Re Sources). A 9-song collection, there are only two songs with guest artists appearing on them. The rest is all Thought, who is a master MC, story-teller and poet.
The album starts with a song called “Fentanyl” which, of course, addresses the opioid crisis we have here in America. Track 2, titled “Soundtrack To Confusion”, has this beautiful bass line, along with a pronounced snare drum kicking while Thought goes off on the beat. The songs on the album are straight Hip Hop, with amazing production from Salaam.

Thank you to all of you who follow us here at RapAttackLives.com, as we could not keep doing this without your support!
A blessed New Year to everyone!

Til next week . . . Peace!!
DJ 3rd Degree

#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?

(click to read more, click to get back)


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?
