Go Old Heads, Go Old Heads
The record label old heads got together in LA yesterday for
The Chairmans Luncheon. This luncheon is the opposite of everything I represent: progress, future, youth, flyness, Web 2.0, new ideas etc. They're honoring Berry Gordy for godsakes. I mean much respect to him, but I'm sure there's much more prevalent things to be discussing.

LOL I'd hate to be the millionth person to compare the music industry with the wrestling industry but this reminds me of when all the older wrestlers like Hulk Hogan and Macho Man left WWF to go to WCW which at the time had a bunch of hungry younger dudes like Steve Austin and Triple H and as soon as they got there, they didn't let any of those cats live, they wanted all the shine to themselves like they got in the WWF which was now letting younger cats live which is why they left. So of course the younger dudes got fed up with it and what was the end result of your Hulk Hogan not letting a young Steve Austin live?...Stone Cold was born. Probably THEE most popular wrestler of all time, becoming the modern day Hulkster and surpassing Hulk Hogan in his prime.
The Stack Bundles freestyle intro before the Joe Budden tribute track on MM3 put it best. "A bunch of opportunist that were given an opportunity to make a difference in music but gave no opportunity." Not to take away from all they've accomplished (and haven't) but its a little sad that the dudes who decide what "the youth" want, are in their 60+ yrs of age and can't figure out why everything is falling to pieces. I hear this alot in the political debates lately "21st Century problems, need 21st Century solutions!" ...but who am I.
Oh yea this was definitely an exercise in futility. This looks like a Poligrip commercial LOL! They undoubtedly served jello at this event, albeit caviar flavored but jello none the less. They really need to take a page from Obama and start incorporating some young people into their agenda smh.
i agree, the industry right now is run by Dinosaurs.... but thats regardless. They are now putting the right people in place, wat up SICK!. The only real problem with the music industry right now is it's distribution. We've seen the cassette tape go buh-bye and it's time for the CD to meet the same fate, It's killing us!! i'm currently putting together a patent for a little invention i like to call "Steve Jobs aint got shit on this"
I swear, in the next five years everybody will be distributing through eye.
Isn't Bulldog Entertainment the label/promoter or whatever that DMX signed with? New Media has gotten away from the labels, they are just not keeping up and by the time they do, the next wave will be here. I do believe I told an artist manager in 2005 to distribute his artist music to dj's, labels etc on flash drives. He did it then and it worked! That was 05- it's 08, like your boy said we will be distributing music through our eyes and finger tips next.
Only solution, hire young cats like you into these positions and let's make some moves
The old business model is a dinosaur and the meteor hit back in 1999 when Napster and LimeWire first surfaced. The industry become single based and moved away from signing artists and nurturing talent. Next, they did away with artist development altogether and began merging with each other non stop.
Between Unigram and the Viacom/Emmis Communications/Clearchannel monopolies the music industry became like the film "The Invasion"...everyone sounds exactly the same and everyone plays the same damn songs/videos ad nauseum. It's their own faults for not noticing what the average consumer responded or didn't respond to and adapting to it in time. I say let it all fall. Let the pirates create a new business model that works in the digital music age and the dinosaurs can all sit around, wait and buy into it later. The ARTIST and the MUSIC comes first...the business should help to get it heard and sell it, not overpower the importance of the music itself. One.
The "label" DMX signed with is Bodog Entertainment. They're an online casino with crazy paper that extended their brand to now include music.
