. . . to everyone from The Wing Luke Museum for letting me host the Bruce Lee exhibit on March 9th, 2018 and for the touching "Thank You" card. That evening meant so much to me. Together with the audience and my Jun Fan family, I got to honor both my hero Bruce Lee and my Sifu Taky Andrew Kimura.

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. Nasty-Nes

NEW WEEKLY LATE NIGHT SHOW PREMIERES THURSDAY, APRIL 12 ON COMPLEX
Complex Networks is jumping into late night with ‘Open Late’ with Peter Rosenberg, the first weekly late-night show for the Hip Hop generation. Hosted by the multi-media host and Hot 97 staple Peter Rosenberg, the new series premieres Thursday, April 12 at 10 PM EST on Complex. The show will air weekly from New York in front of a live studio audience.
Known as one of the most outspoken radio personalities of the last 15 years both in Hip Hop and sports, Rosenberg has made headlines interviewing superstars from Jay Z to Mike Tyson. He'll bring his unique perspective to "Open Late" on topics ranging from pop culture to current events.
"I'm so excited to partner with Complex on this new venture! This is a show based on my passion for music, culture and politics that recognizes the diverse interests of the generation raised on Snoop Dogg and Outkast alongside the generation raised on Kendrick Lamar and J Cole," said Rosenberg.
"This is a really big deal for us," says Jack Erwin, Complex GM of Content. "Over the past few years we've developed a slate of programming that hits so many touch points in contemporary culture, in the formats best suited to really explore the things we love. Late night is a natural next frontier for us. There isn't a late night show that talks directly to our culture the way that Complex and Peter can, so there's no doubt that this will be something completely unique."
Drawing inspiration from the classic late-night tradition, "Open Late" will bring together the most influential newsmakers and celebrities from Complex's world and will include exclusive musical performances throughout the season.The inaugural 12 episodes will be presented by Boost Mobile.
The new series expands on a growing lineup of digital series on Complex including "Sneaker Shopping," "Complex Closets," "Complex Cover," "The Blueprint" and "Everyday Struggle."

DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
Week of April 9, 2018

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and
the
Rap Attack DJ’s. We here at RapAttackLives.com take pride in bringing you the best in rap music and the Hip-Hop culture. This week’s fire pick brings you a collab of epic proportions!
This past week legendary NYC MC Kool Keith and his cohorts Dr. Octagon, DJ QBert and Dan The Automator released their brand new album titled “Moosebumps” (Bulk Recordings). Our feature single is “3030 Meets The Doc Pt. 1”, and has Dr. Octagon matching verbal blows with Deltron 3030 MC Del The Funky Homosapian. For those that aren’t up to speed, Deltron 3030 is made up of members Del, along with DJ Kid Koala plus Dan The Automater. So, Dan is the link between the two.
All of these members are North Cali legends, helping put the Bay Area on the map as the hub of amazing Hip Hop music.
This track jumps off with Del on the mic, with an awesome synth bass and very simple drums banging in the back. Then Keith jumps in, with his iconic off-beat (but always on-beat) rhyme flow. This is a funky track with DJ’s Qbert and Kid Koala laying the track with epic scratches as the track fades out.

The song is out now and, you can hear it, 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 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.
