THE MINNEAPOLIS HIP HOP SCENE
by Jessica Weber (Co-Sign)


To our Co-Sign friends and family,
Many of you know that over the years, our company has worked closely with both the Rhymesayers and Doomtree record labels, as well as the Minneapolis music community as a whole.
Late last week we became aware of allegations of abuse involving artists on both of these labels, as well as other clients of ours within this community.
We are deeply disappointed and saddened to hear about the patterns of toxic behavior outlined in these allegations, and the abuse these victims had to endure. It’s also upsetting to hear that these issues may have been brought up in the past and were not adequately addressed.

While the story is still unfolding, we've connected with our clients, demanding answers and accountability.
We are committed to doing everything we can to make sure the conversation is centered around the victims’ needs, making sure they are heard and protected so everyone can begin to heal.
Looking forward, I hope that this sparks  a larger conversation around the treatment of women within the music industry at large. Unfortunately, these problems aren't unique to the Minneapolis music scene, or to the music industry, and are still prevalent throughout society.
As we continue to fight for equality on the airwaves and beyond, we vow to make the conversation about the treatment of ALL women in the music industry and beyond a prominent one.

Thanks for reading.
I'm here to answer questions and offer clarification wherever I can.

Fire Pick of the Week
July 6, 2020
Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and the Rap Attack DJ’s.
What is good my Hip Hop friends!!? You ready for some new music?? Well, this week’s fire pick is now about a week old now, so you may or may not already know about it. If you don’t know, now you will!
Hot off the presses and again, right on time,
Public Enemy just released a brand new single titled “State Of The Union (S.T.F.U.)” on Enemy Records. Produced by DJ Premier, the song is a cry for all to stand up and fight against the injustices in our world and kick Trump out of office.
Hard-hitting, the song really grabs the listener from the start. A dope sample kicks it off, then
Flav and the beat jump in which adds an amazing texture of energy. Some cuts from Premier, some dope P.E. samples, and we are off to the races as Chuck sparks it on the mic. Politically and socially conscious in nature, this song speaks to all of us who care about the current situation in America and the rest of the world.
I am very happy to see and hear that
Flavor Flav was not actually kicked out of the group.
If you wanna check out the visuals for this one, here ya go:

Shout out to the Rap Attack DJs for sharing the love!
As I always do, dropping you with the knowledge on that fresh Hip-Hop.

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

This is the new music industry for those who have a fantasy about being signed to a major label. Basically, it isn't worth it unless you are simply using them to build your brand and your name globally. As far as making money, you would be better off as an independent artist "IF" you have the money to promote yourself independently!
THIS IS THE NEW CURRENT RECORDING INDUSTRY PARADIGM & THE BIG MONEY WILL BE MADE IN PUBLISHING, MERCHANDISE & LIVE SHOWS
(whenever this pandemic will allow for those concert events once more)!

During this unprecedented time of the COVID-19 pandemic, DJs have turned to social media to stay connected with friends, family and their communities. We are connecting to not only discover what’s going on in the world but to bring joy and comfort through music. Unfortunately, social media platforms such as Facebook and Instagram do not permit copyrighted music to be played on their platform. There have been many attempts for DJs to bring the power of music to ‘quarantine life’ but live feeds are still consistently cut off.

We are asking for change. Change that would permit music to be played without interruption and provide the appropriate compensation for the artist. There are many ideas on how this can be done and the technology already exists. We would like social media music outlets to reach a mutual agreement with music publishers, record companies and DJs so we can continue to unite worldwide when we are all so far apart.

We are asking everyone to join us to bring this matter to the attention of the powers that be in regards to how this problem is affecting our worldwide arts community with the hopes that in turn, we can stay connected with the people through music.

Sincerely - The Dj Community.
Thank you.

J.P. Maxfield: The Man All DJ’s Should Thank

Why should all DJ’s thank J.P. Maxfield? Because in 1927, J.P. Maxfield determined that records should be “12 inches” in diameter and played at the speed of “33 1/3 rpm’s” (revolutions per minute). How and/or why you may ask? It began with the film industry: movies were (and are still) divided into reels.

"The Heart of The Dragon" is an incredible short film/documentary about my Sifu Taky Kimura,
The relationship between Sifu Taky and Bruce Lee reminds me of the relationship between Sifu Taky and me, going back to when I was just 11 years old. In the doc, Sifu Taky says, "Why me? Why did Bruce pick me?" I could almost say the same.
My mom always shopped at Taky’s grocery store and developed a trust with him. A single mom, she would ask Taky for advice on raising me and he’d look out for both of us. Even though I was too young at 13, he invited me to be a member of his
Jun Fan Gung-Fu Institute.
Growing up, I was bullied and picked on, the butt of all fat jokes and had low self esteem. That all changed because of Sifu Taky’s guidance. It wasn't all about martial arts. What Bruce shared with him, Sifu Taky shared with me.
I am forever thankful.
Please watch and enjoy this documentary.

“I'm seeing a comeback or return to RnB music amongst lovers of Hip Hop. RnB was big in the 90's. Just about everyone in Hip Hop was feeling that genre of music. As a leader with over 40 years in this biz, I'm supporting the return of RnB with the debut of our first “RnBLives Top 10” chart. It lives right after Conference Call Picks on our Charts page.
