DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
Week of April 23, 2018

Thanks for continuing to support indie rap music and
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!

Who is the hottest artist out on radio right now?
No need to respond, just asking a rhetorical question!
Arguably the hottest artist right now, male or female, is
Cardi B. This female MC from The Bronx, born Belcalis Almanzar and professionally known as Cardi B, has exploded onto the scene. Just three years into her career, Cardi has released “Invasion of Privacy” (Atlantic Records), her debut major album.

The album is chock full of guest appearances from artists including
Migos, Chance The Rapper, SZA, 21 Savage, YG and others. Production for Miss Cardi’s album was done by Murda Beats, 30 Roc, Boi-1da, Frank Dukes and more. Cardi debuted at number one on Billboard’s Top 200 list.
Her singles for the album are “Bodak Yellow”, “Bartier Cardi” ft. 21 Savage, “Be Careful” (my personal favorite) and “Drip” ft. Migos. This album has rap, latin, and trap beats, all flowing together. Her track “I Like It” takes
Pete Rodriguez’s 1967 song and flips it for a hot sizzling groove.

She can also flip it gangsta style as shown on her track with YG titled “She Bad”. It is dark and hard on the trap beat as both MC’s take it to the streets. Her single “Be Careful” is the latest one out. It has this really fun light vibe to it, with crossover appeal and a very catchy hook.

Cardi B shows off her diverse rhyme skills and, in my opinion, you are either going to like it or not.
I think this girl has a future!

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

Til next week . . . Peace!!

I made a decision to stop smoking & stop doing drugs on April 14, 2004 — that was 14 years ago.
I can never forget that day.
Huge thanks to
Suspens who drove me to the hospital as I was having a mild heart attack. Cigarettes, smoking meth, snorting —
it will all catch up to you.
I'm blessed to have survived and if you can relate, I hope you will survive too.
I hope you get my message. Make your decision. No matter what your situation,
help is available.
I’m living proof.

. . . 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 feel truly blessed.

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. 

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?
