gotta put some shit out, make some noise, rip a few shows, and talk to the program directors at some area rap stations about gettin yo shit spun. your quality gotta be pretty str8, they aint gon be playin no shit done on a radio shaq dynamic.
Radio play is full of so much bullshit politics, With the exception of certain smaller scale stations and University stations, DJ's onli play what has been established as good or what they've been payed off to play. If u can link up with a cool DJ, asking him personally is one of the best ways to do it. Get out there and network. Peace
dont expect to EVER have your song in any type of rotaion on any type of commercial radio without MAJOR financial backing...
songs are like ad's nowadays....record labels pump buku bucks into stations to have there songs in rotation...
a program director WILL NOT play you if you dont have proper representation...
and dont bother asking the djs to play it...cuz 99% of the time they have NO CONTROL AT ALL over what gets played...even though they may make it seem like they do
dont hold ur breath is all im saying..no matter how good ur quality is
wrd i'm only 14 so I can't like do shit til' i'm like 16 lol
yo mic.. u can use a radio shack mic and still get play.. as long as the qualitys good they wont notice that u used a cheap mic..lol..
lol^^^^^mic1tharula I mean I can't like perform live til' i'm like 16-18
^ why? im 15 and i've performed...
yeah...everyone quit dreamin
lead is right
u think its a co-incidence that only the same 20 or so songs play nonstop on the same stations every day for like 2 months?
radio shows are exactly like tv shows...just no picture..if u want a commercial or tv program to air...u gotta throw down sum loot
its like like the radio is sum ultimate destination, and just if, just if, sumone herd u, theyll play ur song, and then, bam ur a star, and u get signed. no. maybe that's wat growing up watching too much disney channel has you believing, but the truth is, u ain gettin on the radio unless you call in on the phone, win a contest, or ur on a label. if u wanna be on the radio, make a demo and send it out. and pray to god u get signed.
^^^ alot of radio stations have a local spins show...i know my local rap station does. they spin local shit for like an hour once a week, a lot of cats listen to that shit and if they like what they hear they'll go down and pick up the record.
theres this hip hop station coming to my city and they gonna be all 100% hip hop , promotin local cats and shit no wthats what yall need
werd I mean at like clubs I can't perform..but I will be performing in talent shows
networking and the ability to generate money will get you on the radio.
Werd I feel you on that
yeah..anyone can get on local stations..i think hes talking about hitting it big though..like, on sum hot 97 type shit or sumthing
u have to register whatever songs you want played with a publishing company otherwise as far as a radio station's concerned...they're not gonna play it. and yeah, there are a lot of stations now that have like a "local" night...u can try and get through those channels. There are a million options in gettin your shit heard, even if it isn't necessarily on teh radio. U make yourself heard the radio won't have a choice but to play you.
thats just not true.
^^^lmao yeah I mean on like one of VA's kinda unknown rap stations(they play some big time artists, but alot of underground artists)
