1-2, CHECK IT…
i’m SURE most of ya’ll (IN SEATTLE / TACOMA) done heard that “one time” song ON THE RADIO (i.e. KUBE 93) by
(you know, the 15 year-old kid that got signed to Island / Universal & currently has hit songs on Billboard Hot 100)
(drum roll please)
Brainstorm of Dyme Def
as you can see, there is a problem with that picture.
what’s so funny about this shit is that KUBE 93 doesn’t even play the ORIGINAL VERSION OF THIS SONG, THEY ONLY PLAY THE “REMIX” OF THE SONG FEATURING BRAINSTORM OF DYME DEF…and boy do they play it…it’s in constant rotation on kube 93’s playlist.
anyways, of course i went to youtube to see if this “REMIX” was anywhere as “hot” as the ORIGINAL that Kube 93 NEVER PLAYS for some reason, and the comparison is staggering…
Justin Bieber’s ORIGINAL “one time” song has over 20 million cumulative views…while the “REMIX” featuring Brainstorm of Dyme Def doesn’t even have 1,000…ACTUALLY @ THIS MOMENT (10:30 am, Tuesday November 10th), NOT EVEN 100!!!
so, it seems we got a bit of good old fashioned SWAGGER JACKIN” goin’ on where a “hit song” comes out and a radio dj (i.e., B-MELLO) “conveniently” puts a certain artist OF HIS CHOICE vocals’ on a song, makes absolutely no changes to the song (basically), and puts the “REMIX” in place of the PROVEN original.
anybody in the “music game” knows that COPYRIGHTS PROTECT 5 THINGS:
1. REPRODUCTION OF THE WORK
2. DISTRIBUTION OF THE WORK
3. PERFOMING THE WORK PUBLICLY
4. MAKING A “DERIVATIVE’ OF THE WORK
5. DISPLAYING THE WORK PUBLICLY
i’m willing to bet that the “REMIX” that is playing in constant rotation hasn’t been “cleared”, in other words, not only are multiple copyrights being infringed upon, but the LESS POPULAR VERSION OF THE SONG IS BEING PLAYED IN HEAVY ROTATION…SMFH
people can say that the “remix” is the version of the song that people want to hear, but the youtube views PROVE otherwise…
KUBE, B-MELLO, BRAINSTORM, WHOEVER OR WHATEVER RADIO STATION…please quit SWAGGER JACKIN’ “hot singles” (like the Young Money one ya’ll swagger jacked too)
MAKE UP YOUR OWN ORIGINAL HOT / HIT SONGS and quit tryin’ to put Brainstorm on songs he has no business OR LEGAL “PERMISSION” to be on…
play the ORIGINAL TRIED AND TRUE VERSIONS OF THE SONGS AND QUIT FAKIN’ THE FUNK BY NOT PLAYING THE ORIGINAL VERSIONS –
just in case ya’ll forgot what SWAGGER JACKIN’ means:
To steal; to copy; to use as one’s own
those ain’t REMIXES…them joints is SWAGGER JACKIN’ UNOFFICAL BITIN’ AND FALSE ADVERTISING
