I watched "Roxanne Roxanne" on NETFLIX — I loved it! She comes from my era of Hip Hop. I have fond memories of seeing her perform many times in NYC. I also played her records on my "KFOX Freshtracks" Hip Hop radio show in Seattle. I had no clue that she came from a very abusive childhood. There was a lot of domestic violence, which many of us can relate to.

This movie took me back! You get to see the beginning careers of
MC Shan, Marley Marl, Biz Markie, Sparky Dee, Nas & The Guardian Angels. What I found dope was that they played two west coast classic cuts from Egyptian Lover, ”My Beats Go Boom" & "Egypt Egypt”. I don't remember the west getting any east coast radio love during those years. I highly recommend watching it.

In addition,
Rap Attack's own DJ 3rd Rail's "Dedicated" Hip Hop vinyl radio mixshow will play tribute to Roxanne Shante' and the Juice Crew on 4/9/18 this Sun-Mon 12 midnight-5am CST from Chicago's WNUR 89.3fm (www.wnur.org). The first part of the show will be strictly Roxanne Shante. The rest of the show will be Juice Crew Cold Chillin' members Marley Marl, MC Shan, Masta Ace, Craig G, Kool G Rap, Big Daddy Kane.

DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
Week of April 2, 2018

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and
the
Rap Attack DJ’s.
Great production makes for a great song.
When the first few notes or bars of a track grab you right away, you
know the song’s gonna be great.
This week’s fire pick fits that mold. “My Foundation” (Just Da Ill Music) is a brand new single just released by MicBles and features El Da Sensei (The Artifacts). As soon as you hit play, it really grabs you.
When a wonderful loop sample of strings and keys start the track, you begin head-nodding right away. Then Mic jumps on and gets things going, rapping about how Hip Hop is the foundation for his life and how he loves this music. Mic really rocks the mic here, no pun intended! The hook of this song is produced like a DJ Premier-style chorus, with producer
Science Green cutting dope lyrical samples. Then the legend El Da Sensei rocks the track, giving you his take on the topic, HIP HOP! Both MC’s do a great job riding on this beat.
The song is out now and, you can hear this track, along with others, on “The Coast to Coast Hip Hop Mix Show featuring DJ 3rd Degree” every week on www.endangeredspeciez.com.

Go grab it if you can. If you need it, DJ’s, let us know!
We got ya!!!

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

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?

On “
Boblo Boat,” Royce warmly looks back at his childhood growing up in the D, a proud, blue collar city that has not always received the most positive of accolades. On the song, Royce transports listeners back to a time in the ‘80s when families could take a boat ride to Boblo Island and forget, for just a few hours, the stinging realities of life for black folks
in
Ronald Reagan’s greed-is-good America.
Royce’s new album, Book of Ryan, will be released on May 4th.

HIP HOP LEGEND LOVE BUG STARSKI PASSES AT AGE 56
by Jay Quan
Love Bug Starski was right there
at the genesis of the subculture now known as Hip Hop, before it even had a name. With his Grandmother living only 4 blocks away from the Black Spade hotbed
(Click pix/text for more, Click to get back)

known as the Bronx River Projects, he made friends early with architects like Kool D.J. D and Afrika Bambaataa. Starski was one of the first to D.J. and Emcee simultaneously, and even though he got his start right there at Bronx River, he also carried equipment and records for the late great Pete DJ Jones who played for a more mature crowd. The Grandmaster Flash, who studied Jones and was impressed with Jones’ ability to preview records via the cue button on his Clubman mixer, introduced Love Bug to Jones. Along with Keith Cowboy of Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5, Love Bug is said to be one of the originators of the word “Hip Hop”. He rhythmically inserted it into his rhymes and used it as a segue, much in the style of Wonder Mike’s intro on the Sugar Hill Gangs’ “Rappers Delight”. It was Afrika Bambaataa who later used the words Hip Hop to describe the street artform, including Djing, B-Boying (breakdancing), Graffiti and Emceeing (rapping), but it was Keith Cowboy & Love Bug who are credited with the creation of the term.
Sylvia Robinson, who started the first notable rap music label Sugar Hill Records, attended a birthday party at Harlem World for one of her nieces and this was the first time that she heard rap music This is also where she formulated the idea to commit the music to record, as a way to get herself and her stable of record labels (Stang, All Platinum and Turbo) out of debt. It was the Love Bug Starski that she witnessed that night. Master Gee of the Sugar Hill Gang told me that before there was a Sugar Hill Gang, Rappers Delight or even Sugar Hill Records as a name, Starski was the first Emcee to record for Sylvia. He actually rapped to the track that would become “Freedom” by Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5.
Lovebug Starsky would eventually record for Fever Records (run by Sal Abbatiello, who owned and operated the infamous Disco Fever nightclub) as well as Tayster and Epic Records.He penned the title track for the soundtrack to the failed 80’s movie “Rappin’”. Lovebug Starski’s biggest hit and signature song is “Live At The Disco Fever” produced by the late great Larry Smith. “You’ve Gotta Believe”, which he recently remade, was a big hit as well. In addition to being an early Dj/Emcee, Starski was also one of the first to deliver an energetic stage show, using the entire stage when he performed.
Love Bug was an extremely private and guarded person, who rarely gave interviews.
Rest In Peace to one of the building blocks of the Hip Hop subculture.
