A groupie fan, not a professional. In fact I blame them for a bunch of this drama on guess who? The DJ? Cause see in order to make a name for yourself, what do most of these cats do? Pop shit. Again, show me a mixtape emcee with a deal and I'll show you why, the Underground continues to get pushed underground. Anyway, back to my original point. What do they each have in common? A record label, distribution deals, faces on MTV, blah, blah, blah.
Somehow, I could careless about hearing the DJ. The last time I checked, it's the music that gets me hype, not the hype man behind the record.
Again while I won't retort the comments made by Star, I certainly as hell won't defend him or Envy for these reasons: 1. You have a responsibility to uphold once you plant your ass behind the mic. People call Tom Joyner a sell out, but you know what, Tom Joyner doesn't do dirt to get notoriety. How many HBCU's has he been working hard to help fund and keep open? Which is the problem with these DJ's today. As Funkadelic once said, "If you don't like the effects, then you don't produce the cause.
Funkmaster Flex assaultin another DJ, Dj's gettin beatdown, and now a war of words, which led to an arrest. They enjoyed bringing the groove to the ears of the listeners without all of the bullshit. Also, they brought a poly-sci, black power like stance to their comments. In other words, they wern't scared to keep it real. Whereas today, all I hear is how street you are. Some suggestions on how these sucka DJ's can improve 1.
Understand why you're behind the mic. Then realize that the role of a DJ is to play music, not be a robot 2. The minute you understand that communication and asking the real questions and not being a groupie and be in awe of a dude who is pretty much like you is imperative, you'll earn my respect. Leave all beef at the door, the airwaves is NOT a place to air out your grievances, and Jerry Springer like issues. Understand the music. Not just flip the wax. Know the music, understand the genre.
Don't be afraid to reach in the crate. Tell em where the samples come from, play the damn original. Respect your demographics. The children are listening.
Last but not least, quit actin like a bitch! Originally I was bout to post some more rare funk reviews, but instead, I need to get this off the dome. Even though I'm a funkateer, my roots are deep in Hip-Hop and it pisses me off when I keep seeing these untalented, ignorant and unprofessional cats gracing mics. Not only gracing mics, but carrying this brand of unprofessionalism to city to city. Club to club. CD to CD. And with unprofessionalism, comes ignorant entourages not having enough sense to realize, that this is a business.
Don't get me wrong, this business has had it's fair share of dirty dealings, but this is at a whole nother level.

Dudes with the iciest grills, most bullet wounds and grazings. Repetitively being pimped by the system are bankrolling hundreds not millions of thousands of dollars. In return, heres what I, the consumer gets in return.
A bunch of cats on wax, gossiping like they're on the couch on Oprah. I've got something like 10 or 11 Harvey albums going back to Cristo Redentor.

I might be wrong, but there is one called "The Snake" that dates back to If you like a taste of "early funk univibe," check it out. I like him because he was never afraid to seek a new groove and explore it. RoryGfan , Aug 18, Aug 18, 7. I think it's the one when he started using tapping.
Or am I wrong? John, Todd Rundgren, Linda Ronstadt, and others. Jimi Hendrix was there. We were all getting drunk. Then Harvey Mandel starts doing this stuff [mimes tapping]. Even the audience stopped dancing. Obviously, Eddie Van Halen must have picked up a few of those things. I have been mostly playing Parker guitars for the last 12 years.
