If You Believe Trl And 106th And Park Are Real Countdowns.....
if you believe 106th and park and trl are real countdowns then you are on some shit.
all their claims (bet and mtv respectively i believe they are owned by the same company) about their shows being real countdowns controlled by the viewers are pure bullshit.
believe me. without getting into too much detail i would like to say this.
the countdowns in realty are HUGE commercials controlled by the powers that be of the stations which are in turn given rewards by the major record companys.
i laugh every time i see/hear station representatives deny that the countdowns are not fixed. everybody working on the sets (106th and park, trl) know the truth and are laughing too.
you think everytime carson, aj, and freee recommend buying a CD during the program is because they like it?
the whole purpose of these shows is to force feed music to all the impressionable young (black/white) music buying teens out there and to make them believe that the music on the countdowns is all the only music thats out and the only music thats hot.
if the k-otix (example) had a dope new video out and we somehow got everybody and their baby's mother to vote for it, do you think that it would make either countdown?
hell, it wouldnt even have a chance if both shows expanded their countdowns to 100 videos.
more than likely everyone who has been reading my posts is becoming sick and tired of all my complaining and hating....
so in my next post i will offer a possible solution to all this madness with my goal being to get lesser known multi talented underground rap acts nationwide exsposure
sometimes i do not know what to think about some of the people on this board..
as far as freee goes she has made herself look stupid several times already when she opens her mouth and spits her music knowledge.
i wouldnt be surprised if she just saw an ad for g rap's album in a magazine and just decided to try and represent
My friend was in New York on a school trip and got on the TRL thing where they have a person say during the video "Hi, I voted for blah blah blah because blah blah blah. (Scream very loudly)." They apparently told him what to say and what video to say he voted for even though he hadn't voted. So I would not be surprised if it's fixed. At least that part is. The show is bullshit, but it will someday most likely come to an end.
Radio stations are doing that legal form of "payola" where they pay a radio station to play their song a certain number of times. Limp Bizkit did it.
"you think everytime carson, aj, and freee recommend buying a CD during the program is because they like it?"
sometimes - especially Free - she told everyone not to pay their rent and go buy Kool G Rap's album when it came out this month.
also - do you really think we are stupid - or that we even care?!
i beleieve your wrong, the kids are brainwashed into voting for this stuff, but i got an emial asking me to vote for new kids on the block for trl, i didnt, but it ended up getting to #3 on the countdown becuase the email was forwarded to so many people. we should try it with co flows end to end burners video its a dope video
You're a fucking great investigative reporter. I wish you could somehow turn back time to when we actually didn't know all of that.
