Member makes it sound like he’s doing scratches on the hooks on their projects. If I remember, I think his brother managed someone in Low Budget and, later, when he got on NY radio, he reached back to put Oddisee on a few projects (although honestly Oddisee was doing quite well on his own). No one from MD on this one tho, as near as I can tell from skimmed a 2 Dope Boyz article on it, so I guess PR is another born again New Yorker.
Since the incident in the link there, Peter Rosenberg apologized to Chuck D and Chuck D accepted the apology, but it's beyond wild to me that Rosenberg would take it upon himself to throw shots at Chuck D in the first place when Chuck's initial gripe was with Hot 97, not Rosenberg himself.

Synagogue of Satan He made a statement about how that bar didn’t sit well with him as a Jew But doesn’t seen the irony in supporting others that use disparaging lyrics and imagery to portray the black community...see Chuck D reference above BTW, it’s a quote from the Bible
I thought dude was one of these guys buying back catalogues and suing artists over samples?
Don’t know why I associate him with that...but I honestly don’t know anything about dude outside of Ebro in the morning
Weird that folks are scurred to speak on it...but here we are.
20. "That segment was not real at all" In response to Reply # 5
He didn’t address any of Chuck’s points. His counter argument is rappers can sell out football stadiums? Rappers have been going on arena tours since the 80s. So what? Saying Chuck doesn’t “own” hiphop is also an absurd strawman argument. Obviously Chuck never said he was.
Defend your radio station with a valid counter argument. The best point he had was “Chuck has never liked radio.” But even that isn’t necessarily true because Chuck’s starting point in hiphop was....with a radio show. Sigh.

Y'all niggas need to get a life. This is music bro listen to it enjoy it or don't. All this catching feeling's because this dude said whatever about whoever stuff? Just stop. Stop. Rosenberg didn't smack your mom. I personally think he's the only dude even near the mainstream that is really pushing music I care about at all. If you don't, cool but everything else? You can shut all the hell the way up with that.
I haven’t heard a good reason to dislike Rosenberg yet. The album is good. Going way back, he’s been cool with the Low Budget crew, Little Brother, now he gets an album like this put together. What’s the problem?
12. "Man, The Juan Ep podcast was the first hip-hop" In response to Reply # 11
pod I ever loved. It’s back now and honestly it’s great. They recently had The Cella Dwellaz and Nick Wiz on for a whole episode. And a Phife tribute ep with Redman, Phife’s widow and Rasta Root. I mean what kind of hip hop fans ain’t into that type of content. The guy oversteps sometimes but supports good music all the time with Real Late. He also shits on himself regularly for his “mistakes” within social media and elsewhere. He’s aware of his imperfections.
I don’t listen to the morning show at all, I’m strictly a fan of the Juan Ep podcast from back when it started and because of that I support him and Ciph because they’ve given me hours upon hours of good entertainment and laughs.

>Y'all niggas need to get a life.
and don't worry about what other people are worried about. nothing wrong with wanting to know who is putting out what you may be purchasing, in fact a lot of the problems in Hip Hop over the past 25 years would have been solved if we did more of that.

21. "RE: I always wondered how this worked" In response to Reply # 16
To paraphrase the most recent podcast, he’s been working with some guy who hosts underground rap freestyles in his vintage clothing store. The guy has been feeding PR songs and artists for the Real Late radio show. They decided to start setting those songs aside for this project to have the underground artists and some bigger artists that Peter is able to pull in like Jim Jones and Ghostface.
But generally, I think with Khaled, Clue, Flex, etc, it’s just like hiring artists to jigsaw puzzle them together on different songs. The small part about the business end I heard doesn’t sound favorable but I don’t know the ins and outs.
