Radio’s relevance to hip-hop?

by Josh Kimball

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.”
