Fire Pick of the Week
August 19, 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 and super H-O-T for you during these steaming summer days! And oh yeah, the kids are headed back to school!
But, we pause . . . summer is still here!


OMG!! Sorry, I just listened to our pick this week and, DAMN, it is FIRE! No, I am serious, this joint is a straight up HIP HOP BANGER!

If you’ve been following my write-ups, most of you know by now that I am a BIG fan of the production of
9th Wonder, out of North Carolina. In my opinion, this dude is the modern-day Pete Rock. 9th is back behind the boards for Rapsody, his lady MC whom he's taken under his wing. She’s released her first single “Ibtihaj” from the forthcoming album “Eve” (UMG). It’s a tribute to American Olympic fencer Ibtihaj Muhammad, the first to wear a hijab while competing for the USA in the Olympics. Pretty dope!

The single features
D’Angelo on the hook and GZA, The Genius, from the Wu Tang, on the helpful collab verse. It samples GZA’s 1995 solo single “Liquid Swords” as the backdrop to this track. Soulful, the track gets attacked verbally by both Rapsody and GZA during their verses. I love the vibe of this track, how 9th cleverly flipped the sample, and how the two MC’s, plus D’Angelo’s soulful voice, really tie this song all together.

Check out the video: https://bit.ly/2Ks0ltQ


All right everyone, that’s the one for this week!
Keep plugged in to what’s dope by listening to the
RAPATTACKLIVES PODCAST.

Drop Of A Dime (DOAD)”, The highly anticipated forthcoming four-part limited-series film, written, co-produced and directed by John Dickinson aka Rosebudd of the critically acclaimed, hit-documentary, American Pimp.

Drop Of A Dime is the real life screen-adaptation of his books and the depiction of the winding, legendary, lesson-filled life of Rosebudd as he went into ‘the game’ feet first, experiencing the highs, lows, illusions and realities of life as a bona fide and notoriously potent pimp. This is the film too real for TV and to substantive for the studios. Pulling no punches and confronting the uncomfortable scenarios and realities of life on the street, fast lanes and big money and the costs that go with all of it – Drop Of A Dime, the limited-series film and soundtrack. Featuring the single “Paranoid” by Shannel Best, both available July 4, 2019.

#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?
