Global sensation Pitbull has taken the world by storm with his critically acclaimed album Planet Pit, which features a host of pop music luminaries such as Marc Anthony, Enrique Iglesias, Jamie Foxx and Chris Brown as well as star-studded producers Dr. Luke, RedOne, Max Martin and David Guetta. The album's knockout single, "Give Me Everything," reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100, Top 40 Mainstream and Rhythm charts.

Arizona Bill will Ban Subversive Latino Music from Radio PDF Print E-mail
Written by Orbson Rice   
Thursday, 03 May 2012 05:02

If Governor Jan Brewer gets her way, Arizona radio stations will soon be prohibited from playing Latino music over the airwaves. On May 3, the Arizona House will vote on a bill that would ban any music that:

 

 

1. Promotes the overthrow of the United States government.

2. Promotes resentment toward a race or class of people.

3. Is designed primarily for listeners of a particular ethnic group.

4. Advocates ethnic solidarity instead of treating listeners as individuals.

According to the bill, “Any music that includes more than five words in a language other than English will be reviewed by an independent commission for seditious overtones.” By these standards, many popular artists such as Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony, Shakira, Pitbull and Selena Gomez will likely find their songs banned from Arizona radio stations. According to Brewer, this legislation is necessary to “curb the growing use of subversive music to manipulate young Latinos into hating the United States.” Since entering office, Brewer has made a concerted effort to attack Hispanic culture. HB 2281, with surprisingly similar language, outlawed the teaching of Ethic Studies in Arizona schools. According to Tucson Unified School District board member Michael Hicks, “If there is no more white people in the world then okay, you can do what you want.” Until then, Brewer is doing everything she can to curb the flow of Latino music, books and history over Arizona borders.

Brewer’s supporters believe that the Governor is only doing what is necessary to protect the “American way of life”. Evelyn Rothchild, President of Ban Items Toxic to Christian Homes states, “Music these days is sinful. It’s all sex, drugs and violence. Ever since that “La Bamba” song came out we have been fighting against this evil Mexican music. What does ‘La Bamba’ even mean?  Do you know? It probably means America is Satan? Why would we want to put that on the airwaves?”

Governor Brewer is quick to point out that she is not banning Latino music, merely asking that it be translated into English and examined for “inappropriate” lyrics before airing it on the radio. “If a song has good wholesome lyrics, it can be played in our official state language. Artists can no longer hide subversive and incendiary material behind the Spanish language.” The Bill is expected to pass the House and be signed by Brewer on Thursday, or as Arizonians will now call it, “the day the music died”.

Romney Campaign Leak: Embrace Rap to Attract Black Voters PDF Print E-mail
Written by E. G.   
Thursday, 03 May 2012 04:53

If singing  “Who Let the Dogs Out” wasn’t an indicator of how out of touch the Romney campaign is with minority voters–try a strategy of embracing rap. Sources close to the Romney campaign recently leaked that Romney would profess his appreciation for rap music and make references to rappers as a strategy to attract African-American voters.  Apparently the campaign has been creating flash cards of past and present rappers, the states they are from, and the songs that made them famous. In addition, they’ve discussed the possibility of using hologram technology similar to the Tupac/Snoop Dogg show as a means to entertain crowds in urban areas.

When asked to confirm the “rap strategy”, a spokesperson for the Romney campaign replied:

“Mitt Romney loves all music.  The diversity of music in America reflects the diversity of our people. We understand the need to connect with people from all different backgrounds and music connects people.”

So, Mitt Romney loves the trees in Michigan, grits in the South, guns at the NRA and —Tupac in California and Biggie in New York?

R.I.P. Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes PDF Print E-mail
Written by Robert   
Saturday, 28 April 2012 05:59

April 25, 2012 marked the ten year anniversary for the passing of Grammy award-winning TLC group member Lisa “Left-Eye” Lopes. “The word anniversary means a celebration. For us her death will never be a celebration, it’s still something that hurts,” says T-Boz. Group member Chilli agrees, “Lisa is our sister. You never get over losing a family member. We love her and we miss her and that isn’t ever going to change.”

To commemorate the singer's passing, German-American digital label Block Starz Music LLC has made a previously unreleased collaboration between Bootleg of The Dayton Family and Left Eye. Recorded a few months before her death, Left Eye‘s verse on the song "Fantasies" is reportedly the only 16-bar verse she ever recorded as a feature. A portion of the proceeds from "Fantasies" will go to the Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes Foundation.

2012 is also the 20th anniversary for the group and is filled with many surprises for TLC fans worldwide. Chilli and T-Boz are very excited to be executive-producing a biopic on the group’s story in conjunction with VH1. “This project is truly a dream come true for us,” says Chilli. ‘What's Love Got To Do With It’ scribe Kate Lanier will pen the project, which documents TLC’s rise to fame with 1991's "Ooooooohhh… On The TLC Tip" and their follow-up success with 1994's "CrazySexyCool," and eventually selling more than 65 million albums worldwide making them the biggest-selling girl group in history.

In addition to the movie, TLC is working on a 20th anniversary package which will include tour dates, an album project with new music and several remixes on some of their favorite hits. Chilli and T-Boz say they are looking forward to giving new music to their eagerly awaiting fans and returning to the stage.
