Radio’s relevance to hip-hop?

Rapper Saigon in Hiphop DX: “Radio doesn’t matter. Radio is so overrated right now when it comes to hip-hop. I know artists who are getting thousands of spins and can’t sell a record, and nobody comes to their shows…I just came from London. They treat me like Michael Jackson [overseas]. A girl fainted [at one of my shows] in Norway. I don’t need radio.”

File under vintage music tech or platform hopping?

The technology is not new, and neither are the books, but Largeheartedboy points to a recent newspaper article about Continuum’s 33 1/3 book series.

The edition covering Neutral Milk Hotel’s “In the Aeroplane over the Sea” is the top-selling book in the series. Fans’ least favorite? They brought the hate when it was announced that a Celine Dion book was coming out.
