    Why I Petitioned The FCC To Take Hot 97 Off The Air

    in Music

    We will be discussing the recent FCC filing of a Petition to Deny the renewal of WQHT Hot 97's license to broadcast by New York hip hop journalist and advocate Manny Faces.


    Manny says, "Often, such opposition revolves around content (i.e., is modern rap music indecent, suitable for children, perpetuating negative stereotypes, etc), however my petition pursues a different line of reasoning, stating that the station, because of its use of the term "hip hop," is attempting to redefine "hip hop" as a genre, rather than the more accepted definition, that of a culture. While Hot 97 plays much hip hop -- the music -- it does not serve the interest of hip hop -- the culture, or hip hop -- the community, particularly within their broadcast radius."


    We will be discussing this stunning development, and taking calls on the topic.

    Devastating Tito, Update on our Petition vs. Hot 97, New Releases & your calls!

    in Music

    The NY Hip Hop Report, New York hip hop's #1 talk radio show, is proud to welcome Devastating Tito form the pioneering rap group the Fearless Four to the show. 


    We always look forward to speaking to our hip hop veterans, especially those who have continued to work in hip hop music and culture their entire life. We'll be asking Tito about his early days with the Fearless Four of course, but also about Team Fearless and the yearly Team Fearless Hip Hop Honors, to find out how Tito has keep the original spirit and ideals of hip hop music and culture alive and well in these ever-changing times.


    In addition, we'll be giving an update to the filed FCC petition against Hot 97. You'll remember that even before Chuck D was publicly speaking out against Hot 97 recently, our Manny Faces had already begun a potentially devastating (no pun intended) action against Hot 97 and their corporate parent, Emmis Communications, filing paperwork with the FCC that could threaten the station's right to broadcast.


    We'll be giving an update to the update that was recently posted on BirthplaceMag.com.


    OF course, we'll always have discussion about other current events in the NY hip hop landscape, event reviews and previews, a breakdown of some notable new releases, and YOUR CALLS!

    R.I.P. Hot 97? Funkmaster Flex v. Jay Z? Classic Hip Hop on FM?

    in Hip Hop Music

    NOTE: We'll be paying respect to ASAP Yams on tonight's show as well, and talking about the Jay-Z/Hot 97 purchase rumor. The following was written before all that.


    Hip hop radio.


    It's a topic we've touched on before, paricularly in regards to New York's iconic Hot 97 and their lack of support for local artists, or the hip hop community at large.


    Hot 97 remains at the center of the discussion, in part because of their iconic status, but also in part because of their stubborn insistence that they be considered the "voice" of hip hop, even though much of their actions point in the opposite direction, and are even hurtful to the music and culture that made them what they are.


    We'll talk biting the hip hop hand that feeds them, and what might be going on at the station. A flurry of high profile and loyal departtures, new, out-of-town personnel with little to no hip hop radio experience, and a heated on-area airing out of Jay Z by once-prominent Funkmaster Flex has many of us who watch the industry perplexed.


    Is Hot 97 on the verge of a complete collapse, format switch, or something else entirely unexpected? Will they ever be more than a typical 2015 rap radio station that plays a forumlaic playlist and doesn't take any responsibility for helping to negatively affect the music and culture that made many of them rich?


    Perhaps they'll fall off completely and change to the radio "format of the day," classic hip hop! It's a format that many stations are rushing to change to, but our show host Manny Faces feels it's actually bad for hip hop, and likely to fail.


    Feel free to call with your thoughts. Do you listen to Hot 97? What do you think is missing, if anything? Are you an old-school head? Are you excited about the classic format idea?


    Tune in and participate. It's NY's hip hop talk radio, and it's all about YOU!
