For those that don't know I am a ball fan! Last night when I should have been asleep so I could get up for my radio show (Worldwide Wake Up Show on CIUT 89.5fm 5:30-8am), I was watching the Golden State/Lakers game! All I gotta say is watch the #1 play of the night. Lebron did some damage as well last night, but Kobe Bryant - DAAAAMNN!

Diddy sure created a lot of noise with his statement "DJs Killed Hip Hop". I have had discussions with promoters, music lovers & other DJs about this topic. One thing people fail to realize is that a DJ has to want to break records. A lot of DJs are just content playing there Top 40 hit list week after week and month after month. I agree that if a DJ is not breaking records, he is not doing his job. Especially if that DJ has a following and can create a hit by playing a joint nobody knows. Some people get into DJing for various reasons - whether it be the love of music, money, sex, or fame! From Kid Capri to DJ Drama, Starting From Scratch to Jazzy Jeff, or Clinton Sparks to yours truly... we all thrive off of new music. DJs not only have the power to break a hit, but also make the hits - the rest will follow! I am that DJ.

Diddy had recently said that "DJs killed Hip Hop". Here is his response to "the DJ". Passion for music is real! Here's my take:
Let me say this... DJs didn't kill hip hop. Especially in Toronto.. As a DJ, if u are not playing new music and breaking records YOU ARE WACK! What ruined the life of a record is people relying on the mass media to dictate whether a record is a hit (i.e. BET, MTV, Much Music, etc.). Nowadays, DJs are searching for that next hit to say they broke it or played it first! Maybe some DJs don't take the risk in breaking a new record - but don't categorize us all the same way. I had the convo with many DJs - the "digital" game (Serato) can do 1 of two things... It makes a DJ even more creative & passionate or it makes them super lazy! Everyday is like Christmas to me... sometimes u get that record that blows you away. That would be like the "super gift"... that toy u wanted when u were a kid. Some tracks are like getting socks & underwear - just ordinary. Nothing exciting!
Basically... Don't blame all DJs! Those DJs who aren't willing to expand know who they are!
