10 Things DJs Are Hating On

I wrote this for Ozone Magazine in 2008 & it's still true.



10 THINGS DJS ARE HATING ON
1. GETTING PAID AT 3AM- AND I GOTTA CHASE YA ASS FOR THAT! YOU SIGNED THE CONTRACT ANTE- DA-FUCK-UP!

2. AMATEUR STRIPPERS IN THE DEEJAY BOOTH- UNLESS IT'S A STRIP CLUB LADIES KEEP YOUR DAMN CLOTHES ON! TRUST ME ITS NOT ORIGINAL AND IF THE DJ IS PAYING YOU ANY ATTENTION HE THINKS YOU'RE A SKANK AND BEING A SKANK IS WORSE THAN BEING A HO!

3. PLAYLISTS- ON THE RADIO IS ONE THING BUT IN THE CLUB LET ME DO ME! THAT'S WHY YOU HIRED ME ISN'T IT?!!

4. PDs WHO WANT TO BE PERSONALITIES- YOU'RE IN MANAGEMENT HOMIE…YOU GET THE BIG CHECKS SO WHY ARE YOU HATING ON MY CLUB GIG AND ONE HOUR MIXSHOW?

5. CELEBRITY DJS??!! WTF IS THIS??!! YOU'LL PAY A REAL WORLD REJECT $5000 TO MOVE THE FADER AND BE RUDE TO THE GUESTS BUT I GOTTA ARGUE WITH YOU FOR $500 AND A BOTTLE OF WATER?!! THIS MOFO DOESN'T KNOW BPM'S FROM MPH

6. WANNABE DJS- PLAYING WHAT YOU HEAR ON THE RADIO DOESN'T MAKE YOU A DJ. CAN YOU CUT, SCRATCH, OR BLEND? MIXTAPES INVOLVE MIXING IF YOU CANT DO IT –IT'S NOT A MIXTAPE IT'S A COMPILATION!!! OH AND YOU CANT BE A DJ IF YOU'VE NEVER JOCKEYED A DISC...NICE IPOD THOUGH

7. CATS THAT HATE ANYTHING HAVING TO DO WITH RADIO BUT NAME THEIR MIXTAPES "_________ RADIO"…TALK AMONGST YOURSELVES…

8. INDIE RAPPERS- NO I WILL NOT PLAY YOUR SONG THAT I'VE NEVER HEARD AT 1AM WHILE THE DANCEFLOOR IS PACKED. AND NO YOU CANT GET ON THE MIC EITHER.

9. DJ GROUPIES- THE FELLAS ARE GONNA HATE ME FOR THIS ONE- ARE YOU SERIOUS?? THIS MOFO WORKS AT UPS EVERYDAY EXCEPT FRIDAY AND SATURDAY AND YOU BEGGING TO GET BANGED SO YOU CAN GET IN THE CLUB FREE NEXT WEEK?! GET A LIFE! DUDE DOESN'T EVEN HAVE HEALTH INSURANCE.

10. GROUPIE ASS DJS- YOU CANT POSSIBLY LIKE EVERY SINGLE SONG BY EVERY SINGLE ARTIST AND BE IN EVERY DAMN DJ CREW. IF YOUR TAG LOOKS LIKE THIS:

      DJ SLAM-A-JAM
    CORE DJS/BUMSQUAD DJZ/ HEAVY HITTER DJS/    
    G-UNIT DJS/ BLACKWALL STREET DJS/ TELETUBBIES 
    DJS/ SANYO DJS/ WALMART DJS/ FANTA DJS/ ZYRTEC DJS/ HOV-AROUND DJS/ PERDUE DJS/DASANI DJS
         
DON'T KILL YOURSELF, JUST LAY DOWN & DIE!!

Just My Thoughts


 

We, as humans have to stop taking each other for granted. I was thinking today how we will let a good friend or loved one walk out of our life over something stupid. Like on Hoarders, when a parent doesn't want to throw something away & the kid does. They'll be upset with that kid for weeks over a stuffed animal of a blanket. Have you ever lost someone you cared about over something ridiculous? I gave up a friend over American Idol... we got into an argument over Kelly Clarkson being better than Justin Guarini... Seriously! We're cool now but just to think of how I stopped speaking to her over THAT ... I don't know those people... it's so silly.

 
I didn't believe in the Recession until I got layed off. Almost 2 years later, I can tell you- IT'S REAL THAN A MUTHAFUKKA!!! In the field I was in, the longer you're out the harder it is to get back in & with me trying to get back in in New York its double extra hard with cheese!! Well... maybe not with cheese because cheese makes everything better & if it was better it wouldn't be hard so ... you know what I mean. #AnywayDoe This recession shit is real & I need people to have a LOT more compassion for those that are out of work involuntarily. We're trying, jobs are hard to come by. When you see "90,000 jobs were created" on the news those are usually IT or some other specialized field. If you're like me & worked in Broadcasting for 12 years you aren't qualified. Go to school you say... Ok so how will I pay bills for the 2- 4 years I'm in school learning? When I get out I still risk not having a job because of the people that already went to school & have worked in the field & those graduating with me. It's a vicious cycle. "Take what you can get" I have & let me tell you- IT SUCKS!! Retail... Lawdhabmurcy.... I can't wait for the season to be over & the pay is DREADFUL. Some of us are trying, some are not... don't count us out though. Our comeback will be even more magnificent than our setback. BELEE DAT!!


I really don't understand the Keri Hilson backlash. She talented, pretty, & intelligent. She writes her & some of your favorite artists songs. I mean, why ya'll so mad? And WHY would you dog her but support Nicki Minaj & her technicolor wigs? I don't get it. Nicki professes to be the "best female MC" but she put out an R&B album with TERRIBLE singing on it and ya'll let that make it but get on Keri who is good at what she does. Oh... you got life fucked up? ok that explains it then- NEXT!!



Tiny had "Mrs. Harris" tatted on her hand recently. Now I'm torn usually when someone gets their boothangs name tatted on them it doesn't last but Cliff & Tameka have been together for a while & gone through a bunch of stuff so maybe they'll be the ones to defy this "curse" if you will. We'll see...



Congratulations Chris Brown! I'm very happy & proud of that kid for completing his class & doing well on his probation. Say what you want about him, he's working to make himself a better person. An abuser who does things just for press or to change what people think about him/her would never have lasted this long or kept up with their probation. Good Job Chris & keep your hands to yourself homeboy!


I have so many ideas for vlogs & blogs but TV saps my soul & sucks all the energy to be productive out of my body. Last year I only did 2 posts, this year I've done at least 125 so I'm getting there. Let's see what 2011 brings.... good things I'm sure. You won't catch me saying "2011 is MY year", every year you're alive is you're year. Make the best of it!

SON!! YO SON!!

I've watched this @ least 5 times already! Kevin Hart, Trey Songz, & a bunch of others were at Diddy's album release party for his newest coaster album "Last Train To Plastic Paris". I'd tell ya'll to buy it but I wouldn't mean it. I'm sure it's trash, this video however is PURE comedy!! 

Kev & Trey aint shit! LMMFAO

The Wendy Williams Experience

Mama Bubblin & I hit NY to attend a taping of The Wendy Williams Show. Guests on todays show were Ciara, Marcus Settles (?) from Gossip Girl, a chick from Life & Style who gave us the tips on some hot Christmas presents, & Arianna Huffington taped her interview for Wednesday's show.

We had to get there before 8am which kinda sucked because it was cold as a witch's titty today but once we got in everything was cool. Here are some pics:


The Waiting Area was packed!
 

How You Dewaaaan?



The guy in the hat is Kevin. He's a great hypeman & kept the energy flowing. The lady is Paula she & her twin sister were in line with us.


 

I should've told that girl I could see her track ... I'm so bad LOL


 

One of Wendy's Producers & Yes, I hit them up for a job LOL 


Mama Bubblin & I Stylin on ya'll




Wendy thanked us for coming. She's very nice & a lot thinner than you'd think. 

Now for the good stuff! 

We got 3 HUGE bottles of Vaseline's new Intensive Rescue Lotions, it's right on time because it's cold & I don't do ashy! We also got a Lia Sophia Bracelet valued at $150 & REAL Pearls from PearlSource.com valued at $450, plus a really cute snow globe ring from GlamGlobes.com- you can personalize them with your name, picture, or logo.

This picture doesn't do the bracelet justice ... how bout...



That's better! 

This has nothing to do with Wendy Williams, Mom & I went to see our cousin who works in the city after the show & look what he gave me!!! 


 YES! YES!! YES!! I almost cried! I LOVE WEEDS!! My New Years Eve is SET! Me, Conrad, Nancy Botwin, & I'm good! SUPER GOOD!! 


My VA Boo Tim snagged this pic of me from the show. My eyes were open I promise LOL

El Debarge @ Highline Ballroom

 On a really cold night in NYC, my homegirl Nina 9 & Mama Bubblin DRAAAGGED me to see El Debarge and it was AWESOME!!! El still has it & will give it to you... HARD! 

He does kinda strike me as the uncle who always hugs you 2 seconds too long and says stuff like "Girl you're all grown up now" O_o. At least he's never peed
on anyone... that we know of...

I digress...

The show was EXCELLENT!! Here's some video!
