CARLOS DE JESUS
Back in the day, I’d spend my summers in NYC with my sister and I would tune into this guy on NY’s 92 WKTU radio. My sis would also record his shows & mail them to me on casette. A lot of my on-air style is based on his — I so admired his smoothness on the mic.
Thanks Carlos! R.I.P. (Feb. 13, 2012)

DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
Week of February 18, 2019

What’s good fam!?
For all my true Hip Hop heads,
I got something super dope for you this week!!

It's been three-plus years since Brooklyn’s
Sean Price, aka Sean P., aka Ruck, suddenly passed away. During that time, lots of music has been released that Sean either recorded or was working on prior to his death. Well, this week’s fire pick is a new release from Philly’s own Small Professor featuring the microphone assassin Sean P. Titled “’86 Witness” (CoalMine Records/Ruck Down/Duck Down), it has 10 tracks, including an intro featuring the one and only DJ Revolution, plus two remixes.

This album is an absolute must for those that love the golden era of Hip Hop and Sean’s amazing vocals. He brings the ruckus (pun intended) on the single “Refrigerator P”, which features his
HeltahSkeltah rhyme partner Rock. The songs all bang with Small P’s production and equally rock with Sean riding along with rhyme partners Quelle Chris, Guilty Simpson, Elucid, Castle, AG Da Coroner, Your Old Droog, Illa Ghee, Reef The Lost Cauze, Curly Castro and ZillaRocca. Revolution cuts and scratches his way throughout the album.

I think this is a quality collection of music.
This is a must get for your collection!!!

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

Til next time . . . 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?
