"It's not like andre would come in with the melody in the hook and big boy would deliver the versus although they did that clinton at times but plenty of times. He's the one who came up with the hook as well. So it's i think it's a much more balanced group than a lotta time. It gets sad we when you mentioned that to write it. It's sad the fact that people again are trying this stereotype or to fit people in boxes. All we'll how in the world can these two disparate personalities. You know befriends one is so gangster in one just wants to be like jimi hendrix. And it's like no man is not as is not as simple as as you want people to believe it to be. Yeah and they road. I mean you know. Big boy road with andre all the way through that run. I mean he kept up with cement and the other thing we didn't mention is it wasn't just that the first album was a mind blower. It said then the next album free people's shit that had already been into the first one end in the one after that does it again and a one after that. Does it again one after that does it again and and i think it's what happened. Andrei vis-a-vis fame. It parallels dave chapelle so much and it talks. I think it says something about our era. Where the pressures of fame and the distortions you know that comes back at you where it's impossible to create to take in information and create in the way that you had done before. Here's hey off with a million time got damaged. Here's here like hey off with a million. I'm glad to hear we go. Yup yup i mean the sensitivity need an artist.

It's what largest cities in the south one of the biggest african american citizen the country and yet look at the history of african american music in this country and it's not even in the top five most important cities i mean obviously got new york and la both massive cities for jazz and rb. Then you've got detroit with motown. I mean case closed. Their memphis way ahead was And halla wolf in the blues and all that stuff and new orleans with the birthplace of jazz and all the crazy jazz stuff the meters neville brothers and all that stuff atlanta like the biggest georgia artists. I could think of autists reading who went to memphis. James brown with cincinnati athens with rem had a bigger musical in atlanta. Going into we now. So it's interesting that these cats decided to come to atlanta and make something of the music scene and actually succeeded. Although i do not think i intended to take over the the hip hop world but just There but so then we we turn our attention to germain. Depre- was was Who had heard of although definitely a lot more about the new he was start as a kid. Dancer dance and as pets executive though. That's the thing he's executive yes right right so. This is a kid whose dad would get outta hinted at that during it like it was. That's why houdini was like. Oh he's a great dancer on tour and he had to carry out. His muscle wasn't good. I'm not saying at all it's just you know it's not like it's just some kid from the middle of nowhere gets in there and they finally had houdini. I was like oh this there. Hootie segment like a sad especially the recent passive ecstasy and salsa documentary about a german producer. Who is big with craftwork and all these guys and he produced one the houdini albums and they were actually. The movie was made by the guys kid and everybody was being addicted. Kim because apparently the dad had been really totally off not horrible but german and distant made fun of houdini. Were super sweet. Like excellent Reclaimed them when exit passed away. So yeah it was. It was kind of a bittersweet saying houdini on there. But i was glad that get in there. But then this is the guy who discovers criss cross. And i love his story at the mall. And there's these two kids that all the girls are treated like they're the beatles and they're giving them free cookies in the cookie store and hollered.

"As you inflate how much money you taken to report authorities so very interesting there but definitely did have local hits and was a paragon of the local saint. But they didn't talk about was this was. He had a national hit. Not that one but nasty dancer think a couple of years later was actually on the national rb charts. He signed with interscope in the mid nineties. Remember that fucked it. All up with the first degree arson conviction also know white barn down but yup come on. Come on come on now. We don't know that. He burned whatever he was arrested. Tried convicted for burning by. I mean he was old he was trying to keep it real. He was trying to so some kind of connection to new york in the roof and we heard the roof is on fire. Put that into work. The yep yep so anyway any any final thoughts on kilo ali. All of a sudden kito ali-like akito come on. No no no i. i'd like some real again. This would be like an addendum. Would it make good. Tv but something that if you know if this is gonna live later on some website if you want to drill down i'd like to see a real actual accounting. I'm as a person who makes music myself. I'm always dying to know what the real figures were you know and i got the day lots of reasons for not divulging but you know for example. Say pete rock came up. My sister's works with pete rock. And i said to you what's pete route. Dewey's she says she's he's producing some of my stuff but then in one of our back and forth on twitter pete. Rock is so huge in europe. He's like jesus christ reincarnate europe. Whoa so all. I've been so pete rock has rocketed who you know and i remember once playing some shows in hamburg. It'd be in there and public enemy was like playing the stadium there at hamburg. That was a i. it's just. It's i like a real honest rendering of accounting justified. That how people are making it you know and if you haven't had a hit slighty eighty seven and your free in the middle of the day to talk this canadian hip hop guy for substantial. I need to know what you're doing. I'm just. I'll seriously. I'm just i'm telling you if you can make it work. I mean why am i. Busted my mutton resident of the series because it appears that they fill most of these people in their homes or in a home and always very rebels prosperity in unnoticed. must steph scripts seemed to be pretty plush but marley morals house or studio wasn't so nice and most displays built by tv and soon money which is real money but in the nineties was real. Money and cds cassettes and music. So you know hard to say well. Let's keep moving. Then they talk by king. Edward j i definitely never heard of any any Very very local. Do a guy who owned a record store in atlanta came from florida moved to atlanta a couple record stores. I love that as a loss of as currently preaching and and he made mix tapes and sold them and then he started doing little personalized wraps on the mix tapes and apparently he was doing the thing where he would like to short did where he would do custom tapes for people who pay extra as well and then and then he started having dj's and other rappers come in and put out full on rick's tapes apparently sold quite a bit in the atlanta area. Because they would not play the local hip hop on radio even the even the.

The famous black folks airplane flight were coded is actually colored bright orange. If it really was black you'd never be able to find it after a plane crash and it was invented in one thousand nine hundred fifty eight by scientists david warren of the aeronautical research laboratory in melbourne. He thought typer coda in a secure box. Recording everything spoken in the cockpit of a plane would be pretty handy so he showed it to an important british air vice marshal during his lunch break and the vaas marshall could it was such a good idea. He invited into london to show it off to the minister. I the action. The rest of course is history. Mice rings didn't come back.

"Cares about the rock hall a podcast about the rock and roll hall of fame. I'm your host. Joke was allah. And i know entirely too much about the rock and roll hall of fame and i do a lot of research for this podcast. You know who doesn't do those things. It's my co host doesn't do research doesn't care about the rock and roll hall of fame. It's kristen stuttered. Hi kristen that's me Hello i do as much research as i've casually done as far as listening to the artists that we are going to talk about. Will that be enough. That's a fair listeners. To decide also maybe. Our listeners are are hearing and audio difference in your quality. You've got a brand new microphone exciting. I'm looking like a straight up. Nineteen forties radio announcer in in the zoom right now Got a cool aka g. mic and headphone setup. And i dunno. I think i'm sounding crispy and clear very cool all right. Let's bring in our guest today very to have her. She is a hip hop scholar. She's a she's calling in from atlanta and her upcoming book. Chronicling konia the rise of the hip hop south. I think positions are to be the perfect guest for this episode. Let's welcome dr regina and bradley. Thank you so much for so the first question. I always ask because it's a it's a weird subject this podcast. What is your level of familiarity with the rock and roll my to got on a scale of one hundred. It can be on a scale. I i don't really follow investors. Like i don't know a black artist is that bad. I think that's reasonable okay. It's very reasonable and most of you are in. I would say the majority as far as people who follow it or care about it. Welcome to my team. We represent the majority but Joe is the expert and then many of our listeners are deeply invested in what happens with this Wipe patriarchal institution. If we're yeah. I mean that's how it goes this year. You know we had whitney and Inducted this year and then last year it was janet and then presented a rosetta. Tharp was three years ago. The fact that i just know all this is mary. You're you're researching on the low christie. No yeah it's very. It's like my brain like a sieve and like as much as the information passed through as possible but a lot of it sticks around. Yeah oh and then nina. Simone got in the same year as a scissors are so it's been a very slow and terrible. Climb not not doing great in terms of living black artists either which is a bad thing about the hall is he can cross your fingers and say next year and that'd be disappointed next year every damn time. Okay so since you're the of scholar you're eligible for the hall of fame after twenty five years. Is it yeah. And the little wrinkle is. It's it's technically twenty-six but yeah they say they say twenty five sounds like some of the grammy rules about when you submit. Never mind any. Yeah i mean that like we're discrepancy becomes from. They determine the nominees at the end of the year. They become inducted At the beginning of the next year or so. It ends up technically being twenty-six although the pandemic has pushed that back so that it's all happening in the same year then. It's just twenty six now. Okay yeah and i guess before we we really get into it. A kind of review of the halls history with hip hop is kind of important for context. I suppose it's dicey like sometimes it's sometimes it's pretty good like they like biggie and to pocket run dmc public enemy all got as soon as they were eligible. And then you've got you your grandmaster flash and if you're is five were the first hip hop artists. That were inducted. Took a few years for them to get in a few ballots. Same with nwa. Same with beastie boys so there are seven hip hop artist currently in the hall and then part of the issue though is that it kind of seems like it's a one artist through per year only a token ring if you will right and you can kind of see the strategy there of you put one hip hop artist on the ballot so that you don't potentially split votes like if you want to maximize like say last year maximize big shot of getting in. You just put big in as the loan. Hip hop artists on the ballot. So then he'll have the easiest road to get in. But what happens. Is you get an artist like ll cool j. Who has been on the ballot. Five times and chronologically should have been an ready if you're going through the the history of hip hop but for whatever reason he can't seem to get in so you take a look a year like twenty nine thousand nine. The first year outcast eligible they were still like. Will we have to get the chronology right. So they put local jay on the ballot as the loan and then he didn't get in so that means no hip hop artists. Get him say boots math right there. So for operating based on how a hall works. It's you know everybody's kind of waiting their turn this upcoming year. Jay z becomes eligible. And we're assuming he will probably be a hill get in first year. It will happen without a doubt especially because he was in the biggie induction as well and there's just no way that and especially because you know beyond say would show up if he shows up and i feel like the yet. There's no way that he's not getting in. Unless i mean now. I'm doing speculating. But like unless he wouldn't come and then they're like because you have to go to cleveland. I think he'll come. I think it'll happen. I think it's a no brainer. I think that he will absolutely get in next year. I think i don't know when l. o. j. is ever going to get in. I'm like what's he going to have to do. Yeah we're gonna need it bio-pic yeah or he's going to need to dislike suddenly get back in the game and just spit fire on someone else's song out of nowhere they're like is back then people. I don't know it's outrageous that he's not in probably kind of interesting especially when you think about living black artists especially hip hop artists of these folks like they're still making good music so usually when you get enshrined that means that if iraq is over in a lot of That's not the case. So that's the only thing. I can think about what i felt kind of bad. Because in my head l. l. is the terrell of the rock and roll hall of fame. Like i don't know part of the two that spoke still so struck on east traditional ideas of genre by rock roles do x y and z in unfortunately a lot of rock and roll folks to understand it. Rock arose. Start black folks. i don't understand. i mean okay. But you know think maybe a.

"Hello. Welcome to the day punk ass I'm Laura Riley did today's senior correspondent coming to the end of my stint killing neo regular host Brian Mercy. So on today's show, I'm very excited to g she Donald Albright Donald Founder I'm president of. TV, which is an Atlanta based production studio is hidden costs. Vanished. Monster Linden in La. Many money. Combined the has reached more than five hundred, million dollars to date and TV as they would suggest is increasingly inking deals beyond podcasting, TV and even recently striking deal. So don't welcome to the. Past. Thank you for having me. Let Veer. And Eighty joining us from Atlanta today as you've been hung down. Yes I am I've been here for. How long has it been now? Feels like this. Browse data. Yeah. Monday or Saturday I can't tell but yeah. I mean Atlanta from California originally but. Moved here to Atlanta. After after I should go into college and then I love the city. Yes I was going to ask you she's a what brought you to Atlanta. I know your your background was in music permission an are. Yeah. Yes. So I'm from the Bay Area San Jose California my mom actually moved to Atlanta when I was in high school So I went to thousand state after graduating high school for about a year and a half, and then at certain point came to visit my mom and a friend of mine his older brother was going to Clark Atlanta University a historically black college. I went to the campus. Saw Beautiful Campus I saw beautiful women and I said I have to go here one day. So I transferred transferring from Saudi state to Clark Atlanta and the you know had half my family was already here so. Ended up staying and just building. Building out my business here, and it'll be started started in music industry in Atlanta. And in that time, he builds up a pretty enviable client list to have to say like Jay z outcast, can you take back to that time? What what can have brought e to setting? Is It D. Day and statements and some of the this the standout moments from that time. Yeah I mean so many it's been twenty years It all happened very much like podcasting kind of by accident I've always been into our entrepreneur started my first company when I was about eighteen years old shirt COMP design company Printing Company which I learned from Tom, this profit organization that I was working with. So I was always been business-minded my my dad his own construction company or has own construction company. So I've always seen him write his own business as well and. When I got to Atlanta. We just for in this music scene that was very Coming up like yet outcasts yet goodie mob TLC, usher and we kind of just. Went to this party and met a few people start networking a few business cards and decided, hey, we should just. Hang out with these people and start to promote and pass out flyers in. Other the company actually started because we were losing money I was the only one with a car. So it was causing gas money to go from point eight point be so I said, hey guys, we've got a pool our money together to share in these losses in eventually someone said, hey, how much you guys charge to put up those posters and we got to come up with a number that's count started the business but it evolved from there obviously from running a promotions company out of the Dorm Room Clark Atlanta to. You know taking artists like masterpiece in Yeah Jay Z. His. In promoting concerts in the going on the road with artists like outkast and Goodie mob and that evolved into management. An are in the and the names started getting bigger and bigger and not just the names bigger. But my relationship with the artists at first, you're a little bit. Distanced from the creative process, you're only on the promotions and marketing side. That I became more involved in the creation of albums, the management of talent stuff like that. So it was it's been great I mean I've traveled the world three times artists toured you know Africa with Chris Brown in the US with With usher festivals all over the world. So I there's so many standout said it's fun to talk about it because I forget a lot of them but the it's like having two different two different careers in two different lives. Almost you know I'm really interested in how you and your kind of tie founder at tend to fit came to mate. So you okay founder is pain Lindsey, and in a prior life he was in this hybrid even describe them. But like rap rock bands cooled rights here the tree. So interested in night walk forces combined that the you T to mate and and start working together. Is another interesting story so we I I didn't know who pain was, but I knew who the band was right his right side of the tree and he. Yeah the music was so and it's all. It's all about like how you introduced to something. It really has a big impact of what you initially feel about it. So I was managing an artist's name. Lloyd, who was on what he was on Atlantic or universal at the time. But big RB artists that Atlanta and he had producer that pain in his the rest of his band and they ended up collaborating in doing a song. So pain had a song with a very popular Atlanta artist. So new the band from from that perspective and like the music and then. Probably three years later or more actually probably the five years later I got an. Email from a guy named pain Lindsay I'm I've moved on in my career and I'm managing a new artist on on the verge of breaking through and I get an email from pain saying, Hey, I'm money's pain Lindsey A mutated director and I love the shoot a video for your artist and. I didn't know who he didn't recognize the name but a friend of mine who having dinner with me at the time I read the email and he said Oh that's pain from rice out of the tree I said okay. Well, maybe I'll give this guy a shot because before I wasn't sure if you we already have people to do our videos, but because of that connection already knew who he was like. Okay that's that's cool. There's. You know there's tried out. So we shot one video for a couple thousand dollars turn out to be great. He was able to I wasn't quite sure like how good he would be. So I kind of was forcing my creative ideas on him but any and you made them come out great and then we did that times and then I said man, this guy's good I should probably just let him run with the creative ideas and have him bring the video back with his full vision and when he did that the biggest got even better. So I just knew like we have a really good working relationship being able to hear each other right and being able to collaborate creatively and in respecting each other from creative and business standpoint. So. It was like the foundation of US later becoming business partners

Suicide Squad kill the Justice League is officially its title and game is about the suicide squad trying to kill the Justice League the trailer for the game opened up on a decimated metropolis. There was a weird glowing giant purple skull ship in the distance and it cuts to Harley Quinn on a rooftop goofing off and making jokes in response to just the General Radio Chatter. Then the rest of the suicide squad was revealed along with Harley Quinn. This game will also feature Captain Boomerang with a pretty intense Australian. Dead Shot and King Shark they had some comedic banter making fun of dead shot for claiming he never misses well King Shark absent mindedly popped green lantern and Batman balloons, which is interesting to me because there have been side quests about popping balloons in the past arkham games. And then Amanda Waller came on the line telling them they had to get to work or she would blow them up. Was All pre rendered but the next part of the trailer gave a pretty good idea of what to expect in terms of Gameplay Harley Quinn zipped around using some kind of Hook Shot zip-line thing and used her bat mainly to attack these weird purple enemies. King Shark looked slow but carried a big machine gun dead shot had a jet pack did a lot of shooting and Captain Boomerang had some kind of quick teleporting ability while he was also throwing boomerangs and other weapons. And all of this happened while outkast's B O b bombs over Baghdad played on top of it. After finishing off the group, they quipped that what they did probably will knock a few years off the sentence and then Harley remembered that there was an Alpha target they needed to pursue. And that's when Superman showed up with his classic Yellow Belt and red. Underwear look. At first, it seemed like he saved a helicopter pilot from a crash, but then his eyes start glowing purple and he killed the pilot prompting these suicide squad to realize they are meant to kill the Justice League, the trailer ended with. Superman. Not really reacting to getting hit in the head with some kind of pipe that guess King Shark through and it revealed a twenty twenty to release window for playstation five. Series. Exit PC. After that trailer host will Arnett revealed a few more details about the game with the voice cast from suicide squad who were in character Harley. Quinn specifically referenced getting excited about killing Batman and Captain Boomerang mentioned the flash. After that game director Sefton Hill showed up. There was this whole silly conceit that will Arnett was being transported around to his hosting duties and Hill had joked that they had just shipped him a green screen which was pretty good joke but he answered a few more questions. The game does play S- in the chronology. So it is technically a sequel to Batman Arkham night it's going to be a lot different, but narrative is moving the plot forward. They decided to do a suicide squad game because they consider their games character-driven and the suicide squad highlights. One of the things DC has always been particularly good at villains they appreciated how flawed they were. It also gave them the opportunity to create an interesting impossible scenario, which is, of course, hunting down the Justice League. The gameplay will be a hybrid of hero empowerment action and Gunplay, which is definitely a unique for rock steady Batman does not use guns. The game will offer up to four player Co op, but will totally be playable single player. If you're playing alone, the AI will handle your other members and you will apparently be able to swap between them seamlessly. You can also go back and forth between single and multiplayer over the course of game it is also an open world. That world being metropolis. The twenty twenty to release window really surprised me. Batman Arkham night released in two thousand fifteen they lent it a lot of support post release but I think it's pretty safe to assume they have been working on it at some capacity since that game released since arkham night released. A suicide squad game was also teased as early as two thousand thirteen where there was something at the end of Batman Arkham origins. So to learn it is nearly two years away. Surprised me. I'm not really disappointed. Honestly, I'm happy to wait just surprised I would have assumed it would be

Keep asking you put out another album. And his whole thing is like is not really every once in a while he'll get featured on track but as far as putting out an album. He's just because he knows he can't top themselves is. This is the reason that under big was the group. Outkast's andre by himself is not a rapper. no he's not an rv singer. No and he's not pop as not really pot the thing about under one thousand nine hundred eighty three six. He's a lyricist. And that's the thing he's not he's not a. He's not a rapper in the traditional sense especially with the new shit. That's coming out now. He's not a rapper and sense he's a lyricist. He's going to put some stuff out. Where that's the one thing that i like about andre. Three thousand Eminem stuff some of the wayne stuff. Because i can sit there and listen to it several times and i always kept something different or realize a double entendre that i didn't realize a play on words that i didn't catch the first time and i think that's the thing with eminem now is like he. He actually went through say on one of his records on this new album. Aware like okay. I went from being typical slim. Shady right that was angry about stuff and on blah whatever got clean came out and i was clean and woke or whatever and people hate that so i went back to being angry. People are like. Oh you're too angry. Shot to make something that was more of a mixture and as it went over people's heads so now fuck if people want me to. Just be the angry that i was and come at people or whatever and that's the thing is like he's always been coming at people maybe not to the point that he is now but he's always had beefs with with people and some of it was stuff that that he started with. A lot of. It was stuff that was in the beginning. It was like anybody that mentioned his name that he was coming after them and then he got to. The point was like it's not even worth my time to dedicate to them because they guy instead of destroying them. I'm giving them more views and stuff like that saw was for a lotta people where they were just calling them out just so that they could get because they knew they would get a response from him and then all of a sudden people knew who they were but at the same i mean that's not common with majority of rep now if all of us are three different artists and we come out with albums and we mentioned each other whether it's a good thing or bad thing we're all getting some sort of following from it started with with with you know what i don't know if it started with but it was you know the biggest one was between beginning. Yeah that was that one got. That was why goes way what the i'm not saying. It doesn't go farther back..

ABC's good like another bell vo to all those groups were around that time to where all you guys just singing because hip hop stuff to just thinking and I was the wraparound the group so wait were you rapping I was like the the the but if from immature who are the sexy talking I did the sexist seven and eight I'm telling you you know all this time I've been playing around Oh yeah I've been playing with my gi Joe's and pogs girl and I've been thinking about you I know I'm nine man that is hilarious I know I'm in third grade girl but I'm drinking milk yeah so that's kind of how growing up I was I didn't how to confidence to sing so they will give me the parts while I was more like mellow talking Canada rapin Canada singing Adams found my singing voice until like fifteen sixteen so you're fifteen sixteen are you still in school yeah definitely graduate high school yet okay so you're singing all the way through high school all the we are you known as that kid the kid in high school like we're all noticed something I was nerd I was known as the singer Okay so you're singing all the way through and as you go through up until about twelve th grade at that point what is your biggest break before you graduate high school Aw I mean we met with a guy named Dr Massenburg he was over at motown and we were about to do a deal met him at the Intercontinental Embark Eh right by mall he looked me my brothers and my mother in the face a y'all have no words Mama they've been able to take care everything we won't sign wing you sat like two weeks later found out he was no longer with Motown town that was one of the moments that was like a huge moment and then do you think he lied to your do you think he got fired in the process of signing you on if you got fire of he just some happen where he just left but I just know the deal didn't happen right and after that outkast we don't want to deal with outkast you know it was you know at that term life they would just a dope group whose from Atlanta like Guy and I remember me with them and they wanted to sign my younger brother to a solo deal so he's going to do a solo deal and then you know me and my older brother like okay cool ooh that'd be fine once he gets all the way where he needs to be he he brings home and then that didn't go away we plan to either you know what I'm saying they're signing him he ended up signing to a whole another deal and he came up with a song or a few songs and yeah I mean what what what when you meet with outkast do you actually meet with Andrei Big Boy Yep like the guy show up and they're like all right this is the plant so they were doing things outside side of outcasts way early even before they blew up they were they will Purple Label and my dad actually just takes me that pitchy like two days ago and my phone like of us in the same room with them without shirts on taking pieces with them yeah so that didn't work out you graduate High School Yep and what's the plan then for you musically 'cause high school probably big deal to graduate high school what's for me where am I hold my whole life I was told you know stick to my art I went to school for art I got a Bachelor of fine arts in so we're not college though from high school to College Okay Okay so you then you decide to go to school where are you going to school where did you go to school I went to you okay and your thought when you go to college is Blank Finish College or learn music or make friends and my really my thought would college was be the person that went to college and if that don't work out just note that music is always number one either way I went down just you know pretty much as their are had degree and what did you study in school art so you study art but you're doing music yup okay so you're studying well what does it what does study aren't though what does that mean I mean I mean you go through all our theory in like paintings yet I sculptures like an op the not even music like you're a whole different track I I did I did all that like sculpturing and websites from dream we would Mac with three D. and do all that so even less than digital art stuff too yep and then if you were to have this let's just journey off a bit and let's say the music stub you end up getting an art degree if you were to pursue that what would you have done an art Oh man you know cartoon network or something yeah voice overs with some animations I could tell just Bella anything you can yeah a Squirrel Squirrel Squirrel pretty good duck one one one one more minute okay let's do more does it isn't an easy one how about a platypus because we have no idea what applaud sounds like I don't know okay maybe but earnestly XLII music was always the forefront but I didn't have confidence to do it I didn't have the confidence in myself so I just I just wanted to figure out how to be a part of it I started engineer straight out of college I started engineering so like the sound engineering so if you're listening right now what that is you had a computer and and you're basically adjusting the levels of everything to break it down like a five years old so your your engineering music and where do you learn those skills to be a music engineer one of my homies hey daryl showed me how to use the controls twenty four and I start messing around with it and then next thing you know I was engineering engineering recording for the Wow Gospel compilations and stuff dip set itself taught yet your friend just said here here here's the kind of how to do it then you just took an indigenous

Being Multiplatform Is the Only Way to Stay Alive With Fader's Andy Cohn

"Welcome to the digital podcasts and brian morrissey this week. I'm joined by andy kern andy as president and publisher of the feeder which is celebrating its twentieth anniversary serie any welcome. Thank you for having me brian. It's great to be here okay so twenty years. You're not a failure at the time though you were at spend competitor right. Yes i was at spin and then i was at the source magazine yeah right around the time. Is this a different era for magazines right. It sure was so lots changed since then but the fighter has continued right and still magazine bimonthly but now i would guess it is a multi-platform brand. Yes it is multi platform because that is the only way for us to you. Know stay alive okay. I think i got there. I've been there sixteen years now. <hes> and came up through the more traditional you know the time period of print magazines were revenue was essentially if not a hundred percent ninety percent an advertising supported through print advertising and then maybe some events here and there some newsstand sales for some of the stronger newsstand publications ends and that was really the beginning of the end of it <hes> from a revenue stream standpoint and it was a boom period <hes> especially in music because as you head spin and vibe and the source and brands really starting to embrace hip hop as marketing platform and vehicle so <hes> <unk> brands as big as you know general motors ford coke and pepsi it wasn't just the street where brands anymore that were starting to really embrace that culture and <hes> to leverage you know the those that genre of music for marketing advertising so <hes> i think for those publications and what ended up happening is they became so heavily driven by circulation and celebrity and who was on the cover and had to just be as big possible artists as you can imagine the other you know jay z on the cover of the source or your radiohead and coldplay on the covers of rolling stone and the fader and <hes> the bigger the circulation got the more you can charge for advertising pages so zaveri simple business model you know at the time which <hes> changed as we all saw <hes> you know especially <hes> brown two thousand eight so it was two thousand eight the big inflection point yeah i. I think it's interesting because coming over to fater <hes> i came over in two thousand three at the time it was a quarterly publication which is what we're actually back to now <hes> and they the guys that started it were from the music industry so they started fater more out of access to music because they were doing a lot of non traditional early early day street team digital marketing for record labels for specific releases so they would have the first outkast album before it would be serviced to survive vibe or a rolling stone or is it then they didn't have print or journalism or magazine experience but they had this access and felt like they needed the document cemented so that's how feeder started <hes> was based on this early access so started as an emerging music magazine where it was artists that you weren't really that familiar with yet which called plan cover no coal plan the cover at the time it could have been at some point at some point so what what was interesting to me because i was a journalism major in college i grew up with my father was a newspaper editor at newsday and a writer you know for forty six years and i was obsessed with <hes> you know just music journalism and when i came out of college i got a job at spin on the business side of the magazine and you know it was. Was it like you said before. It was a very different time is very circulation driven. The whole business model was based on selling ads growing your circulation and your rape base so for me what happened was is because of that. I was at points in time at both of those publications where they were either sold <hes> quincy jones and and the people <hes> bob miller bought spin and brought it into the family with vibe and the source hit such a big mass kind of mainstream removed that you know to go up from there is hard and you have to really do things that weren't in your dna and your original mission statement so what happened was isley. Spin spin is an example is where it was the quote unquote alternative to rolling stone. They were putting artists like p._j. Harvey and tori amos and you know rage against the machine on the covers when rolling stone was now starting to put david letterman and buffy the vampire slayer as they were trying to become so big and more of like and entertainment weekly than an actual music and cutting edge lifestyle magazine which was in one thousand nine hundred sixty eight and for its earlier years so i think the example is when spin got sold. They started putting a lot of pressure to grow the circulation because it wasn't an independent privately held company any longer by bob optus tony junior who is a big music fan and believe in you know promoting these kind of upcoming artists they started putting kid rock and creed and natalie attlee imbruglia and really experimenting with very mainstream things that never fit or seem to fit with the original mission statement was for spin <hes> so you know you can call it selling out but i think what it did was alienated. The core audience of those music publications that came there for something in the first place and then those magazines evolved because of the business pressures so you know put became much less of a challenge much more predictable like you knew jay z. He had an album coming out he'd be on the cover of the source you know so that's like and then in ninety nine ninety eight you started hearing things like lime wire napster during the internet and all of a sudden those long lead publications couldn't really compete with the discovery nature of music anymore so they by the time these the longley publications came out everyone already listened to anne knew about a new of everything that was going on through the internet so you know when i was growing up as an older person had to go into record stores to find you know different genres of music and it was very intimidating. If you hurt someone talk about dancehall you're like dance all for for that now. Dancehall type it in two seconds and you're listening to dancehall like through napster and lime the accessibility to music and all of these genres were so far reaching now that it usurped. I think the purpose of the longer lead you know print titles so when fader first came out was really interesting and caught my eye was that the first issue i saw was the third issue had had most f- on one side and back with the angelo together on the other side and and i didn't really know of who those people were and i thought it was really interesting so i think that around ninety nine when fader started hit this inflection point where the kids were now growing up with accessibility to every genre of music there was not like spin the alternative music magazine ad source and x._l. The hip hop magazines you you know it was here's something that's really reflecting of. What's kind of going forward you know and in multiple genres of music like someone even myself i was i call myself from the walk this way generation which is seeing you know the convergence of rap crossing over into the the mainstream and i think you know starting to really get into music in nineteen eighty six in one thousand nine hundred seven all that just became like second nature to when i was listening to led zeppelin classic rock or public enemy and rock him and you know the fat boys and the beastie boys and run dmc. It was all l. cool to me. It didn't matter it wasn't segmented so i think when failure came out it kind of like captured this moment in time that was really well well timed <hes> because it was speaking to people that had that accessible so it had some kind of advantage over some of its bigger competitors that had gone very broad. Yeah i think what fader was at that. Moment was what was kind of a combination of the best of all of those other publications from when they first started and with what their original missions were when you look at spin starting in nineteen eighty five and rolling stone starting in nineteen sixty eight they were counterculture. They were edgy. Spin was writing and hiv aids column which it was crazy at the time you know very alternative rolling stone. Had you know a crazy investigative journalism pieces and p._j. O'rourke and all those hunter thompson awesome you know the things that they were doing so i think it just you know fader came out with this like fresh voice that was speaking like a and not to sound cliche but he was speaking to this new new generation of really hardcore music fans but the same kind of secular pressures i guess as they call them in the business world you know were exempted right. I mean in two thousand and two thousand nine <hes> if particularly if it's print advertising driven <hes> music industry's gone through a lot of changes <hes> explain that inflection point and sort of how the business needed to pivot because a lot of a lot of competitors didn't really make it as they were or made it in in shrunk informs ripe right. I think being that failures mission was to cover kind of what's next in music and knowing that we weren't going to be able to rely on celebrity for any kind of real scale or mass reach. I think early on <hes> we were very <hes> very interested in doing events and like not only just putting an artist that you've never heard ever seen before on the cover of national magazine but also like doing events bringing those artists out to perform live and finding ending ways obviously early days internet to continue the conversation online so it wasn't just like you were an emerging print magazine and then had to move onto the next issue you talk about a whole new host of people you're able to like start building the brand in other ways and be a little bit more diverse so i think because we did events early on and it gave us a like a real strategic advantage in that everyone then started to do events and i think we had an expertise and ability ability to do events that became a huge ultimately a huge revenue stream for was his fader fort back fater four was just eighteen years gold <hes> and i think that's become you know it's become a one plot digital platform for us like almost like a second brand go to to the fader <hes> but in two thousand eight when print advertising was decimated we were able to kind of lean lean more on these events and really lean on the fact that the events gave us a little bit more of like a multidimensional approach because we couldn't we wouldn't wooden of survived if it was just the print advertising or just going online or going online because there was display advertising even at that point in time was <music> very you know <hes> is very <hes>. It was unknown territory. The dollars were like pennies on the dollar versus what that the meaningful meaningful print advertising before collapsed was you know so like from a c._p._m. Standpoint from a total gross revenue standpoint it didn't it's not like one. Just filled filled the gap on the other side so for us. I i do point to the fact that we did tons of events and were able to really like you know you get brands involved on a multiplatform level <hes> so i guess like ten years ago or so probably ninety percent print right y- yeah yeah so what is it today. <hes> percentage wise print is probably i would say in like the twenty to thirty percent of the total revenue pie. <hes> experiential is probably the biggest experiential in video because through video. It's that means not only only us creating our own proprietary fater video but we also do a ton of white label video content for big brands so that come to us for ours boris that iq our ability to understand how to work with artists so companies land access to the art and i think that's the the real like magical thing about failure of over the years i think when you strip everything away is the artist access that we have because we have double down on these artists so early on in their career when no one else is giving them that type of platform yet that we've been able to establish these you know great long running relationships with both those artists and their management and not not have to go through agents or middle middleman like give an example of that an artist the the stuck with for i mean they were smaller. I guess when you started working <hes> i mean artists like i think drake is a great example <hes> just because of how he is and how big it's gotten he did make it.

Bushwick Bill, Bushwick And Bill discussed on On The Mic

"Today. Some, some sad news for hip hop fans, especially hip hop fans of a certain age, Bushwick Bill when the main members of ghetto boys passed away at the age of fifty two had been suffering from stage, four pancreatic cancer. When the ghetto boys came out, it was it was such a pivotal time in hip hop. History Ryan as music started to evolve and, you know, we have the term in hip hop, gangsta, rap, which I've never been a fan of. But it defines a certain genre of him on and the ghetto boys were definitely from that ilk. But what was different about them is not necessarily things they were rapping about, but were they? Were wrapping from gathering Lewis originated in Los Angeles. In that area, NWEA the Dr dre ice, cube the whole group, but the ghetto boys were from Houston and southern rap and southern gangster rat is different, as you would think, food from the south would be different cars from the south will be different based on where you live and the ghetto boys were the spear of that movement, and southern rat, and for, for the news today that Bushwick Bill died at the age of fifty two, I think, for a lot of hip hop, fans definitely gonna be a sad day. No, it really is. And I think you brought up, what was the very pertinent point to me was that they were from the south, you know, and at the time it was, it was east coast and west coast, east coast was the birthplace of, and then when you got in w became, you know, west coast was a big deal, but for us that was what you listen to, you know, when, when he came on day by day, it's more, you know, those things got you excited in for us. It was. Something that even if you couldn't relate to the life, they were talking about you relate to the things in the places that they were mentioning. And so it's, it's a huge loss, and I think not only people from the south or from h town from wherever you were listening to music from at the time, I think everybody will have some type of feeling about losing someone who is really a legend in creating a space for rappers from the south bay. You know, wasn't necessarily a huge deal before them. The a lot of respect being paid the Bushwick Bill. Some of you may not be very familiar with the group to get a boy's Bushwick, Bill himself. But what made him also unique in the red game is that he was a little person, right? And all about hip hop music at a certain era was about being hard and tough. And whether it's tough MC toughen streets. But you got this little person out there, who was, you know, talking everything you hear about the streets gave a different persona to certain people. And for little people around the country, they were in the hip hop, music. He represented them in a way, they'd never been represented before just way Ryan was talking about how the south was being represented right in music. But a lot of people paying respects to him including ice cube. He put on Twitter, quote, rest in beats to my homeboy Bushwick. Bill from the trigger happy blank, ghetto boys. He never backed down, even though he was low to the ground, a true original, you know, that's what was so. So funny, though, Eve's about his voice was that, that was the last thing you thought about what you thought Bush would Bill. You're right. You know. And I don't mean thing you saw lasting right? Right. I don't mean just as voice in a way it sound saying the voice, he created a rat like that wasn't even how you saw Bushwick, Bill. I remember one of my favorite mart episodes is more and God jumped Morton is I jumped on my little people, and Bushwick. Bill was the leader of that group. And the way he was talking to Martin Carrie. Himself. He was six to in his mind. Right. And that was the way he wrap. That was the way he carried himself. And after a while that was the way you felt about him. And so I think it's I think is really awesome. That, you know, these other great rappers these other legends and rep are kind of giving him his do as to what he meant to hip hop, who else thinks they're six to a closer to five to who's L Dunkin, but see. She got us a real six to kind of personality persona too. So I get it. I don't mess with her. Don't let it have some hills and be stopping into somebody's living room, real quick. To the contrary. I actually think have short man syndrome, which is where most of my attitude comes from, because I'm just all bark and no bite odor. I know a lot about the. Definitely scares you off enough to even try. Crazy. Right. Right. Right. Just don't wanna know because then you gotta make a decision, L, let me because we're talking about Bushwick, Bill passing away the age of fifty two in what the group ghetto boys min at the time, and most things music, always bring stuff to you. And we were talking about being from the south all three of you Ryan and I grew up in the south unit Lanta Atlanta had its own different aspect of southern hip hop music, and that whole thing, but the link of that, and the representation from the south being able to have voices could be heard on both coasts. How do you put those things together in the wake of Bush Bill passing away? Yeah. I mean you know you you've mentioned it. I think that Atlanta, especially old Atlanta hip hop. It's anonymous with fake outcast but even before head, you know, the dungeon family in general, and DJ's that used to come from here, and the sound that we kind of we had to kind of take Miami sound for that because it was the farthest south that really resonated nationally. So I mean it just meant a lot because you felt like it I would go back to the source awards booed off stage, and they just kept saying the same thing, which is has something to say and I just like that feeling so incredibly proud, you know, we didn't really have sports teams to cling onto in Atlanta growing up, so being able to have like Outkast who was hours. She talked like us and talked about things that we understood to happen. And later TI and paving the way for guys like future in to change. Now I mean it's incredible to sink, like how far has come in terms of hip hop, and how they're really powerhouse when it comes to putting

Now, they're providing gig fueled apps and solutions that exceed expectations and help businesses perform Comcast business beyond fast. Some Super Bowls are thrilling and summer like last night when the New England Patriots beat the Los Angeles Rams and the lowest scoring Super Bowl game in history. Of course, the game is only part of the spectacle, where the halftime show and the commercials anymore. Exciting. We have a tweet review here from one Rachel Martin of NPR news who writes, you wrote Rachel well that was horrible. Don't think you didn't love it very much NPR. Tv critic Eric Duggan's has his judgment the most unexpected moment in the Super Bowl. Halftime show. Didn't come from headliner. Maroon five or guest Travis Scott, it came courtesy of characters from the cartoon SpongeBob squarepants who introduced Scott's part of the performance. Musical genius who needs no introduction. The cartoon clip was a shoutout to sweet victory. Assam spongebob. Squarepants once played on an episode that parody the Super Bowl was a hip surprise. And a halftime show that also included appearances from Outkast member big BOI and a gospel choir. Maroon five frontman, Adam LeVine, stripped off, coats and shirt until he was bare-chested showing off his tattoos while singing one of the group's biggest hits moves like Jagger. Gives me. Show. It was professional mildly. Exciting the kind of ineffective Super Bowl halftime show that the NFL might have been hoping for after its controversies over players kneeling to protest police brutality. But it was also kind of boring like most of the Super Bowl commercials press to avoid social media backlash. Many of the ads in Sunday's game were not edgy groundbreaking or even all that funny. Consider one but lights commercials which featured medieval characters from last year's but light Super Bowl ads preparing to watch a joust a beautiful day for a date. Date things out lucky. Loincloth cold Bud Light comfy thrown I don't have the plague anymore when they're but night is killed by a character from game of thrones called the mountain then a dragon sets fire to the jousting arena. And the whole thing turns into a game of thrones commercial. I'm not quite sure how scenes of carnage and fire cells cans of Bud Light. Maybe it makes you thirsting Harrison Ford fared better in an ad that showed fictional failed products, featuring Amazon, Alexa, including dot collar. Ordering dog the Barco you'll want. I'm not paying for England dog food ordering gravy yet. There is nothing funnier than watching Indiana Jones chases small dog around his house, Pepsi earn some multigenerational cool points by having chance the rapper remix. The backstreet boys hit I want it that way. And the Washington Post scored with a serious ad ended reinforcing the value of journalists and journalism as images of reporters like slain columnists, Jamal kashogi appeared on screen. Tom Hanks provided a reassuring narration when our nation is threatened. There's someone to gather the facts. To bring you the story. No matter the cost knowing keeps us free. Now, I might be a bit biased. But seeing some of the most expensive real estate in television used to remind America that journalism is a key to democracy seemed like the best use of a Super Bowl ad that I've seen in quite a while Americans.

"Absolutely one hundred percent. I will never sit here and deny that I think that to have not done that would have been deeply responsible. So no one thought about it more than I do now and put more thought and love this. Adam LeVine said he struggled soul-searching with deep inside of himself. Should he or shouldn't? He, you know, what's funny. And if you see all of the acts that are they're performing the entire Super Bowl week. Right. And you see all the ones who are doing the the run up to the Super Bowl or after parties. But they're not doing the halftime show. It feels a little like this. I policy there, right? There are kind of like all of them are doing something in and around the Super Bowl. They're just not doing the halftime show. But the prop one of the prophets. I saw today was with Travis Scott is going to be performing have his shirt off during the halftime show. It's got to be during the halftime show or Adam LeVine is he going to do that as well. So will Andrei five thousand show up because he's from the I think there from the AT L big boy and Andre five thousand for Outkast and do their thing. It's gonna be interesting.

You know? No cut him off to they'll cut him off. Oh, yeah. No, doubt doubt. And they'll just play the music and people won't care because they don't want some righteous speech from this, dude. And you'll see those people jumping around all the fake models. The teen models that they have run down the field. And they kick them back out. The big day of bubblegum pop except the football. Dental even want the horror stories on the football. If they try to air some story on Tommy novas CTE, the NFL would flip out don't do that to our day of pop.

You did that that can't be easy. You know what I'm saying? So there's a lot of controversy when it comes to the Super Bowl as far as the halftime performer. Travis Scott agreed. A lot of people gave him a lot of heat for that. But he did get the NFL to donate five hundred thousand dollars to charity, which is amazing of his choice, and that's a hustle in my book, I'm not mad at that guy in the streets, hustling, everybody did that guess what the big corporations would have to pay. And the story is not over yet. Like last week about this is a huge still may pull off something else that what he uses this platform for the greater good. So let's find out what do now big boy Outkast is performing as well. Nobody seems to be talking. About that. As far as controversy. Nobody seems to be pulling his card. Oh, gee.
