“The Secret Meeting that Changed Music, Especially Rap Music, and Destroyed a Generation”


After more than 20 years, I’ve finally decided to tell the world what I witnessed in 1991, which I believe was one of the biggest turning point in popular music, and ultimately American society. I have struggled for a long time weighing the pros and cons of making this story public as I was reluctant to implicate the individuals who were present that day. So I’ve simply decided to leave out names and all the details that may risk my personal well being and that of those who were, like me, dragged into something they weren’t ready for.

Between the late 80’s and early 90’s, I was what you may call a “decision maker” with one of the more established company in the music industry. I came from Europe in the early 80’s and quickly established myself in the business. The industry was different back then. Since technology and media weren’t accessible to people like they are today, the industry had more control over the public and had the means to influence them anyway it wanted. This may explain why in early 1991, I was invited to attend a closed door meeting with a small group of music business insiders to discuss rap music’s new direction. Little did I know that we would be asked to participate in one of the most unethical and destructive business practice I’ve ever seen.

Drone Video Reveals the Parts of DTLA You Can’t Usually See


Sure, drones are always spying or dropping bombs on people, but they’re also always shooting super-dope videos of stuff we wouldn’t otherwise see. (A real mixed blessing!) Thank god, Downtowner Ian Wood has gone with Use Two in this beautiful video of Downtown LA, which, as he writes, “Above the grit and noise of the street … quietly provides some of the most amazing visual detailin its buildings and public art works.” He tells us via email that he spent about two months of weekends shooting this video with “a GoPro camera attached to a quad propellered remote controlled helicopter that looks a bit like a mutant chicken.” Besides revealing the little-seen highlights of Downtown’s buildings, he also hoped to show that drones aren’t so bad—on Vimeo he explains he followed all existing FAA regulations, shot early in the day to avoid people, and deleted “any shots inadvertently revealing private activities or people in a place of privacy.” Don’t think about it so hard, just enjoy:l
