A new documentary was just released by directors, Charles Rand & T.Thomas, titled “Kill The Record Labels”.
For decades hip hop has been controlled by the record companies. They invest millions and profit billions from global cassette, cd, and now ringtone sales. Music moguls afford a lifestyle comparable to what we see on mtv cribs. Eventually hip hop artist would adapt the record company formula, and start to strategically promote and market there own music. This has created a conflict inside the industry. The Record companies, in conjunction with the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), have declared war. Offices have been raided, Mom and Pop stores have been closed, and many have been arrested. Hip Hop Artists, Djs, and producers have decided that the only way to survive in the music business is to “Kill The Record Labels”.
Watch the video trailer below:
I know you’re thinking, “Another one?! Seriously?!”, but this is the first time I’m posting anything about “A Milli”, so I’m allowed to get away with it.
Probably the most rapped on beat in hip-hop history (if you can think of another, let me know), “A Milli”, has been done by every rapper, singer and any other kind of vocalist there is. Yet, there’s still more coming out.
At this point, if you’re going to do a remix to “A Milli”, it better be worth it.
Well, there’s one more. And yes… it’s worth it.
After being bombarded on his MySpace page by fans requesting a verse, Asher Roth delivers the goods on the notorious beat by Shondrae “Bangladesh” Crawford.
Oh, and by the way – turns out Chamillionaire just did his own “A Milli” remix as well; in which he mentions Asher Roth around 2:50 into the song.
