Brew Quotes: LL Cool J On Today’s Music

Posted by Witch Hazel | Posted in Brew Quotes, Brew Tube, grammy, ll cool j | Posted on 18-01-2012

I was listening to the radio on my drive home last night and it hit me, I’ve become my Mother. I find myself shutting off the loud, beat-thumping, arse-dropping instructing music that now passes as “hip hop,” in favor of the melodic tunes of my youth. Give me Shalamar over a Waka FlockaDeeDoodle any day. Apparently, I’m not alone in my disdain for today’s mainstream musical offerings. LL Cool J is no lover of the tunes that traditional radio is force-feeding us.

He tells Forbes:

“The biggest problem that we’re having right now… is radio. I think that radio has gotten to the point where you hear the same thing over and over again, so much, because you have a group of people controlling the airplay -no disrespect- they’re doing their jobs, but you have a certain group of people that are controlling the airplay to the point where it makes you wanna throw up. It’s crazy.”

While we may think we have the best career advice, just goes to show you- if you have a dream go for it. Our eardrums be damned! Did you know that Kelandria Rowland won a Grammy for best Dance Recording for her song “When Love Takes Over”. And bless her heart some more, she blogged her acceptance speech.

In the spirit of sisterhood, I will ignore that ‘hairline’..

Mary J. Blige Pops Off, Son!

Word on the innawebs is Mary J. Blige grabbed her nuts, flipped the fugg out and went straight up Yonkers on her band during Clive Davis’ pre-Grammy party.

MJB performed in front of an audience that included Barbra Streisand, Jane Fonda, Maxwell, Taylor Swift and other entertainment heavyweights. Word is Blige humiliated her band in front of the audience right as she was about to sing “No More Drama.” As the band began playing the song, MJB ordered the musicians to stop, waved her arms angrily and said, “Can we get the right music for Mary J Blige? Are we practicing still?” I guess you could hear crickets chirp in the audience. But, nonetheless, Mary still turned it out during her set though.

And then she promptly went backstage and slapped Kendu. Kidding. Or am I???
