Either way it is something I will always enjoy, browsing through the web and found some new music from Beenie Man the legendary Dancehall artist.

Baiyu - FIRE

You want to listen to some "Fire"? Baiyu the Indie singer drops of her newest single bleeding out some emotions.
What sets humans apart is less so the way that we look, and more so the things that aren't seen. Frankly, a lot of those things are still mysteries to us. We are resilient. We are dynamic. We are sentient beings. While each and everyone of us is a unique mix of all these factors amongst others, I want to believe that destiny ultimately places us in the presence of very specific individuals that have the ability to truly transform us. To embrace this is how we evolve


Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail Goes Platinum

#NEWRULES !! If you have been living under a rock for these past couple weeks you might be the only one who has not witness Jay-Z genius market scheme with Samsung to promote the NY Hip Hop legends 12th studio album Magna Carta Holy Grail. If you are like everyone else you have been aware of the million copies bought of the album for all Samsung phone carriers to enjoy the album before the official drop date. 

The question in the beginning was would the album count to the actual sales, and of course Jay-Z gets what he wants.  
When we first created the Digital Single Award in 2004, we elected not to impose any 30-day rule because there are very few digital returns. According to our auditing firm, digital returns on average account for less than two percent of sales included in reports provided by the labels for certification – most digital retailer Terms of Use/Service allow users to return products only under limited circumstances.
Also at the time in 2004, sales of digital albums were virtually non-existent and accounted for a small fraction of overall digital sales. Fast forward a decade and that’s obviously no longer the case.
We think it’s time for the RIAA – and Gelfand, Rennert & Feldman – to align our digital song and album certification requirements. That’s why today we are officially updating this rule in our G&P Program requirements. Going forward, sales of albums in digital format will become eligible on the release date, while sales of albums in physical format will still become eligible for certification 30 days after the release date.

“We Disproportionately Stop Whites Too Much And Minorities Too Little”

Point blank is people you must vote! I do not know how NY has elected this guy and still in the office. I am not fully aware of all the politics of New York but this guy is ridiculous.

I’ve decided to stray from the path UMG has laid for me and continue on the scenic route. I prefer to relay my music directly to my fans. Show them what it is I see. Share with them what it is I think. I enjoy letting you hear free-flowing ideas recorded in basements and broom closets. Who cares that they will probably never be heard on the radio? I want to be proactive and not reactive and I would rather nothing get in the way of the relationship I have with my family, friends, fans and my music.
