He already broke down why Hot 97 play certain records, it's all based on research and ratings. Can't say i blame Hot 97 one bit, what fucking business is gonna market to a niche audience and not go for the highest ratings.
Business is business, all that appeasing some hiphop head can go else where.
From hot 97's standpoint Ebro was correct about the cycle of pop to hip hop. At the same time the so called "hip hop" music being played on hot 97 isn't really hip hop. Niggas clown Bob for going pop but future got that off key electronic autotune being played on hot 97. Niggas upset at rappers goin pop but most hip hop records sound as bubblegum and eletronic as a pop song and are played on hot 97.
Nigga made music Tyler Swifts can vibe to. No shade but the demographic of listeners that tune in to hot 97 don't wanna hear that. They want Drake.
i just slapped the shit out my forehead...
and you people call yourselves hip hop stans.
