    My Sirius acct wasn’t letting me log in this morning, you’re a life saver !!!
    Thanks for the post B.Dot :)

  • GTFO

    Hate on YN all you want, but he is pulling in some artists. (Pause) And he just started.

  • hatin is for sucka’s

    GOOD INTERVIEW B DOT

    thanks for that twitter thing on this site now, if only you could get rid of some of these retarded commenters

  • B.Dot

    ^
    thanks u guys…ya far too kind

  • As A Man Thinketh

    I don’t think its hate people have for YN per se, I don’t know him to say I hate him, but disdain or indifference might be appropriately stated. And I say this because he’s SUPPOSE to be a journalist. As a journalist, he’s should be more bi-partisan in how he interviews and approaches conversations with artists. It’s all good to have his personal favs, etc. But in my honest opinion, he comes off as a being on the jock of these particular artists. But I mean, we saw this when he was the EIC at XXL, his partisan ways towards Interscope & their artists. Even now, be clear that this site is funded by Paul Rosenberg & Goliath Mngt/Ent. (Em’s manager). So there’s a quota of stuff that HAS to be posted on this site.

    Just an example, I’m not a fan of Charlamagne the Gd, but I RESPECT him because he says what the real is and he states his opinion and doesn’t back peddle when asked or confronted about it.

    But listen to the questions, commentary and interaction in these interviews…are you as listerners, consumers and fans actually LEARNING anything new that you might now have read or heard in another interview??

    I can keep going but the percentages of those who don’t understand are higher than the percentages of those who do, which percentage are you?

    Listen up

    Really? u commenters and ur theories. hilarious.

  • As A Man Thinketh

    Peace B. Dot –
    I don’t have theories, I just know the real..i work in the industry…10+ year and have worked with (enter your fav artist here ________), I’m still at UMG getting a check, so God is good.
    But I’m just keeping it 100 with the fans/youngster out there. I like RapRadar but todays journalism, access, etc has a play a role along with BAD MUSIC in the demise of good artists falling thru the crack because of the machine backing what they perceive to be winners.
    You honestly know this is a microwave society we live in…attn span of a HOT artist is like 3 months. I remember when 3-4 singles could take an album for summer to summer, now its maybe 3-5 months.

    I just wanted to point out that YN/RapRadar is affliated with Em/etc, so the Shade45 situation was appropo..but don’t make it seem like that was dude to the hustle. That was the hookup…
    Keep it 100 and let them know the real. Why some artists on here get the shaft and some artist/post stay getting posted and the content is not good.

    peace

  • GTFO

    Drake isn’t the interview that you are going to find anything new in. He damn near puts everything out there for people to see. I don’t do hiphop politics, cuz I don’t care who likes who.

    You could be an asshole like Charlemagne and risk artists never showing up for an interview again, or play the middle and do a good interview and always have confidence in them showing up when called. But CThaGod is funny.

    At the end of the day its about the artists showing up at the station, which in turn brings in more subscribers. #itsstillearly

  • dannidavito

    awww drake loves j.cole lol

  • ZoomZoom

    DRIZZYYYYYYYYYYYYY! NICE INTERVIEW YALL SHOULD INTERVIEW HIM MORE INSTEAD OF BUMS LIKE J.COLE

    WAYNE THE GOAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    i’ll break it down. YN has been on the air before with Angela Yee. obviously, listeners are familiar. this is a temp thing until they find some1 perm.

    2. Why some artists on here get the shaft and some artist/post stay getting posted and the content is not good.

    Disclaimer: Rap Radar is NOT, i repeat NOT star search, American Idol, or the fuckin’ Core DJs. We cover and document the most current events and names in hip-hop. finding the new hot talent was never our M.O. when we launched. if we cover an unknown act, feel honored. It’s not OUR job to make YOU hot. if u wanna find out bout ur fav underground or sewer rapper, there’s 100 sites to the right of this page. go nuts.

    nice interview but i still hate/dislike (whatever) this bubble gum “rapper” aubrey

  • The Other P

    @B. Dot I get what you’re saying but I see what ole boy is saying too.

    Freddie Gibbs, Pill, etc. These are the cats yall consider current? No, them niggas underground. Shit I live in Georgia & I never hear anyone mention Pill like that. It’d be interesting to see the artists’ connections to RR through their managers, label execs or what have you. I’m sure there is connection whether you’d admit it or not.

    As far as familarity w/ YN getting YN the morning job gig…Shade45 could have brought back Leo G who everyone who’s had XM before the station merger is much more familar w/ from the XM66 Raw days. Or even put them afternoon/evening niggas Sear & Jude on in the morn, especially if it was only temporary. YN got the hook up, period. Not saying he isn’t qualified but keep it 100. How often is rapradar mentioned on the morning show? Mentions on air=hits on website

    B. Dot – It appears as if you took what I said personal, when I started the convo with peace…lol..all good. But let me break this down for you…bc please believe I’m a VET in the game and I’m still in the game.

    The “Other P” comment, he got EXACTLY what I was saying. I’m not knocking ANYONE..esp. a brother doing something legal to get money…keep striving. But don’t pass this shit off as what y’all doing is journalism, etc. I know its about hits, demographics, adspace, etc. I told you and I’ll say it again, I DOES THIS! No one ask RR to be Star Search, etc. but to act like some of this shit y’all post is DOPE and THE PEOPLE validate it is a lies, its because you or YN is hooking up a manager friend or label PR person that ‘yall know from y’all days at XXL. I know the real pimpin’ thats all im saying. And trusts, its all about who you know…Thus you and YN knowing Graph’s, Freddie Gibbs, Pill’s management get them posted..so I don’t knock the hustle or the game per se – but the fronting is at an ALL TIME HIGH! Because can’t know cat in here tell me the cats I just name make GOOD music.

    Again peace and we can agree to disagree.

  • KCMO

    cool interview, YN cut back on the laughing, thanks

  • http://www.flokitchen.com dashing

    The most newsworthy thing in there was Drake subtly mentioning that he thinks Kanye perceives him as a threat. I think that’s probably true to a certain extent. That may have had something to do with why he took Drake off “All of the Lights.”

    I also like how YN tried to goad Drake by saying “You been putting J. Cole under your wing.” but Drake was smart enough to not fall for it.

  • justmyopinion

    Real spit I see what As A Man Thinketh is saying I guess he’s asking for substance. I didn’t listen to the interview and I listen to Shade 45 literally all day @ work. I just didn’t listen for that hour block for one I’ll go with Andre 3000 on this one, son hasn’t proven himself and the ENTIRE rap industry is all over the rapper-pause-two personally, I don’t think he is a good rapper at all. THAT IS MY OPINION I’m entitled to that much. The minute you offer your opinion “oh you’re hating” NO i just think son is a corny rapper. But, I see what dude saying when will we get a rapper with as much critical acclaim that will give you a single that’s last more than 90 days? That’s the point he is making……substance.
    Aa A Man Thinketh…………you’re asking non-thinkers to think(not generally speaking)…….good luck.

  • Itz Yourz

    Good shit A man thinketh and B.Dot….see both yall points. A man thinketh even more because you just stating and B.Dot got defensive real quick…which have you to belive thinketh is saying something. Or he could be jealous or he could be a disgruntled wotker or he just pulling these niggas cards…keep it going. Its interesting.

    Im on many blogs…rapradar is one of my favs…the bloggers in here are the funniest.

    how about rap radar do them and you do you. its there site, its a free country( or at least is supposed to be). i couldn’t care less if eminem and them were somehow backing this blog, this is my favorite blog for reasons i dunno, but i keep coming back while this is 50 and all hip hop arent even on my favorites list on my comp anymore, and i’m not even an eminem fan like that.

    bottom line is, like bdot said they post links to other sites, so choose a site that fits your tatse best and keep it movin. dont waste your time complaining.

  • D

    I lot of people complaining in here. And B.Dot if you start with that ”don’t-come-to-our-site-if-you-don’t-like-it” bullshit then fall back homie. You suppose to take criticism. That’ what great journalist do. I like Drizzy, he’s like one of my favorite artist right now (next to J. Cole).But YN, with so much experience in this shit and an OG in this game, he’s sounding like a groupie or some amatuer radio personality. YN, your a legend, but chill out with that dickriding shit.
