Crooked I Says "F*ck The Radio" (Hip Hop DX Interview)

Crooked I Says "Fuck The Radio," Explains Reasoning

Quote:Crooked I explains that Hip Hop culture needs the radio, but that he doesn't get any airplay.

Crooked I has some vicious words for radio. During an interview with ThisIs50.com's Jack Thriller, the Slaughterhouse member said that Hip Hop culture needs the medium, but that he doesn't get any airplay and has some harsh feelings about it.

Crook said that Thriller should have his own radio show, but that radio is too afraid of having "real" personalities on the air. "They scared that you gon’ say some real shit that’s gonna be funny as a motherfucker. Same thing with the Rap shit. Nigga, we don’t get a whole bunch of radio play. I don’t get a whole bunch of radio play. Nigga, honestly, fuck the radio. We need it, but we don’t get it. So fuck ‘em," he said.

He continued by explaining how radio is valuable to Hip Hop, but that artists such as himself don't get any love from it. "I think you need the radio. But I’m a lucky ass niga. I’m finna do House of Blues, boom. I got a song out, radio don’t play it. But at the same time, I don’t care about none of that shit. I don’t give a fuck. I don’t think they’ve seen a nigga like me since N.W.A., to be honest with you, because I be thinkin’ like, who, who, who, who? What nigga can go without radio, can go without any of this shit and be right here shooting videos with Interscope and Jimmy Iovine and Paul Rosenberg over there? What nigga can do that? I got a new campaign: regular nigga.”

Why the sudden outburst? I mean, it's not like Crooked has ever gotten radio play. Of course, so much of it is his own doing. How many times did he say he was not going to sign a distribution deal with a major until one of his singles hit? Does he not realize that's completely backwards? You sign with a major, so that they can put your shit out there, because as far as I know, there's no such thing as an indie rap radio station. Maybe if homeboy had ever gotten his business sense together, he might have signed with some major label a long ass time ago and had a few hits.

Are we not considering Virgin or Deathrow majors...at the time of course? (real question I have always looked at DR as a major and Assumed that Virgin was at the time)

It obviously didn't workout so great those times I mean how many times would you sign to a label to just sit there for years, it's arguable he has had more success on his own

I mean, there were a few Crook solo joints that got play on commercial mainstream radio even if limited.

I tracked the progress of Dream Big and Villain for a while which did decent in some markets with no major label support.
