DJ 3rd Degree’s
Fire Pick of the Week
Week of May 7, 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.

Music comes in so many different forms rap, rock, EDM, reggae, etc. And then there are the sub-genres within those many forms. Within rap, there’s gangsta rap and pop rap, just to name two.
This week’s pick fits into what I would call R&B/Rap. A versatile artist, producer, writer and DJ,
Shammy Dee aka Arash hails from Los Angeles. This is his second release to roll thru the Rap Attack DJ pool this year. The song is titled “Come Home” and it’s one of my favorite’s from Shammy.
A beautifully crafted song, it starts off with this light piano and Shammy singing on the intro. The song is about a girl and the relationship that doesn’t go the way he wants it to go. The track is piano based with light drums — nothing more, nothing less. Just a wonderful track that showcases Shammy’s great song.
I highly recommend it to everyone.

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

The Lost Scrolls Vol. 2 offers fans an exclusive look at 11 lost demos and remixes from the group's early output, from '96 to '99 when the group was but a trio consisting of rappers T3, Baatin and producer J Dilla. They were quickly heralded as worthy successors to A Tribe Called Quest.

The comparisons, although fitting, created a logical fallacy which in turn, landed Dilla the opportunity to work with his idols and many heavyweights in the industry.
The Lost Scrolls Vol. 2 is a treat for Dilla fans worldwide.

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.

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?
