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!!

Prosecuting The Victim

Today I had a conversation about the rape scene in “For Colored Girls” which led to a discussion about my experience with being attacked by a man. I was not raped but I was attacked. I have no problem talking about what happened or the fact that I took him back after the assault – that’s a different discussion- my issue is I became the person being questioned.

If you don’t have the same rage when fighting back you will certainly lose. In these cases, when attacked by someone you love, you wonder why and you become more
