The Enigma Sept Hour 02.28.10

Street Lotto Pictures, Images and Photos

And I wonder...if you know....what it means....

To have a great show! Well I do and you can peep it out right now.

Check out my comments on the Yung Berg situation (or situations) as my WTH moment of the week.

I have down the weekly run-down of the hottest music in hiphop and R&B according to Billboard. Find out who's holding down the top spots. One clue: They both are quite sexy!

Finally, check out the interview with the homie Street Lotto
as he stopped by Hell'z Basement to discuss his hot single 'On My Gangsta' and how he's getting guap in the digital game.

Overall, I think it was a good show. Let me know what you think.

R U Not Entertained?!! - Music's Top 40 Money Makers

beyonce Pictures, Images and Photos released its top 40 money maker in the music industry this Friday. The results shocked me, to say the least. It should be understood that other businesses that these artists are involved in were not counted in the equation. For example, Will.I.Am's Pepsi deal wouldn't be a part of his earned income. It's all based on money earned by the artist(s)'s music. That would include royalties, album sales, concert earnings, etc.

One shocking fact: 10 per cent of the artists on the list are Black. Out of those four artists, on e of them is dead. Lil' Wayne is the only rapper (No. 30, 12.9 million). He was barely beat out by Tina Turner (No. 29, 13.2). The highest-earning black performer was Turner's modern-day clone, Ms. Knowles (No. 13, $23.7). Oh yeah, who's the dead artist? Tupac? Biggie? You've guessed it. Michael Jackson raked in $17.3 million the year he expired, landing at the No. 20 spot.

The No. 1 money maker in 2009 is U2 collecting more than $100 million. The super rock group earned double as the No. 2 money maker, Bruce Springsteen.

Despite notable hip hop and R&B artists like R. Kelly, Eminem, and Mary J. Blige didn't make the list, I'm sure they are still making a large sum of money. Artists such as Jay-Z and 50 Cent are known for making most of their dough in areas outside of music.

Still an eye-opener.

The Enigma Sept Hour 02.21.2010

Another week, another Enigma Sept. Hour.

I stated that I had four weeks of featured guests, but there were no guest this week. I don't know what happened, but aye it happens. #kanyeshrug

The show must go on! I started the show with my intro as usual.

The WTH moment of the week went to a viral video of some elderly white guy plummeting some wanna-be gangsta black dude. A real-life 'when keeping it real goes wrong'. Peace to Dave Chappelle.

I provided Billboard's Top Hip-Hop and R&B songs and albums of the week. The No. 1 song was 'It Kills Me' by Melanie Fiona and the No. 1 album was "Soldier of Love" by Sade.

I covered news bits from throughout the week including Drake's lament about fake promoters and Nas and Kelis' legal issues.

I closed out the show with a discussion on hip-hop bloggers. The discussion stemmed from a exchange on Twitter I had with DJ Greg Street about bloggers who are too negative or even slanderous. I actually got a caller! Yay! Let's keep it up!

Anyway, it was a decent show. I wanted to cut down on the giggles. I hate the giggles. Ugh.

Let me know what you think of the show. Thanks in advance!

The Enigma Sept. Hour 02.14.2010

This Enigma Sept. Hour fell on St. Valentine's Day, but I didn't want to make a Valentine-themed show. Nevertheless, I served up two tracks whose themes were based on love. Flamilia's 'I Wanna Be With You' and Enigma Sept. & Dermo's 'Stuck On You'. That was the extent of the lovey dovey stuff. LOL

The WTH moment of the week went to John Mayer's Playboy interview. Mayer decided to called his hood pass a "nigger pass" and his genitals "David Duke". I understood his twisted sense of humor, but some things are to be kept in private company. Unfortunately, he'll have to endure the consequences.

As always I covered the Hip Hop/R&B Billboard charts with Lil Wayne's "Rebirth" and Melinda Fiona 'It Kills Me' leading the pack.

This is the first of four consecutive shows with featured guests. I invited Lil 8/50 and Umbravo after I caught their performance of 'Tally Boy Drop' at a local club. During the interview, we talked about how they formed the group, their influences, and the motivation behind 'Tally Boy Drop'. They are cool dudes despite some of our difference in taste of music. ICP, really? LOL

Anyway, you can listen to the show at the jump below. Make sure to check out next week's show with special guest, P. Gutta.

A few videos from the Blu Colla/Slip-n-Slide Talent Showcase 2-9-10

Theses are a few clips from the Blu Colla/Slip-N-Slide Talent Showcase at Big Daddy's in Tallahassee. There were a lot of good acts with different styles. These are clips of a few of the acts. Unfortunately, the event ended with the shooting of Playboi, the host of the event. SMH The good news is Playboi is still here with us. We need to do better, people!

The Most Popular Enigma Sept Hour Ever

Apparently, I held a co-host contest for the Enigma Sept Hour. I was on some Steve Harvey trip and wanted to model my show after his morning radio show. The most random call ever came from a guy named Zack, who wasn't excited about one of the nominees. My homie Joni Michelle eventually won, even though her stint was short-lived. Regardless , it was a cause for high-drama and drew the highest archived listener count. Take a listen.
