Sean Price Reacts To Hot 97's Program Director Ebro Darden, Says He Was Dissed

After hearing a comment about him being for "the minor leagues," Sean P responds with a few messages for Hot 97.

During a recent show, Hot 97's Program Director Ebro Darden was asked about supporting "good local underground Hip Hop." In his response, he said that the station supports artists like Sean Price and others but that "those are for the minor leagues." When Sean P got a hold of the clip, he had some words for Darden and Hot 97's Peter Rosenberg.




Later, P continued by saying he was sorry but that he doesn't care about radio.

The video Price is talking about is below.

    hot 97 is a joe...sean p aint played on their because he isnt a commercial rapper that raps for the money or to get as big of a fan base as h can...he is one of the most skilled rappers and does it all without selling out...also, he is the only rapper ive ever heard say that he "doesnt mind when people illegally download his music because that just means that people actually want to listen to him"

    Sean Price plays in my whip. Hot 97 rarely gets burn so I don't know what he's talkin about

  • Mr Flamboyant

    This, ladies and gentlemen, is what RZA and GZA spoke about years ago with the A&R cornballs who want the fame and not to be in the background. Sean Price should smack the shit out of this herb when he's in sights.

    If Sean Price can sell 10k on his own independently without dickriding ass hot 97 playing his music, then what's the harm? This nigga Ebro called him out. This the same nigga that said he was gonna play Nicki Minaj even thought he was told by her not to? The radio station that is HOT 97 used to be for NY but their ratings are so bullshit at this point they have their program director coming on the air talking nonsense. Hot 97 is not the NFL of the radio. No one even listens to the radio..so just play the shit before we protest. Bitch ass niggas at HOT 97..SHIT, there's bitch ass niggas at Power 105 too but at least they give niggas looks. Rosenberg is a faggot too...confused talkative midget ass backpacker

  • FOH

    When did program directors start talking about artists on live radio? You don't see Power 105 doing it, why is Ebro doing it? This guy wants the fame and it's going to backfire when records execs start complaining about his ass. He's fame and power hungry. FOH.

    That wasn't a diss. That was just Ebro being the cornball exec that he is.

      That's how it'll be laughably dismissed as the dude is just innately a clown but, what he said carry's weight you know. The guy's an idiot for saying given what music they play and consider major leagues. It's mainstream.

    UNFORTUNATELY REAL HIPHOP DOESN'T GET RADIO PLAY ANYMORE. FUCK THE RADIO!!!

  • Radio is for old men

    Never heard of any of these dudes except for Ruck. What have these two idiots ever done except spin whatever records sell the most on iTunes. Hot 97 has been a joke since the late 90's. Fuck radio in general, why bother when you can be your own DJ in 2012 and not have to listen to ignorant 20 year olds screech over songs and in between them.

    Go back into the house and stop yelling at people grandpa. No one wants to hear about the 80's.

  • John Blaze

    Oh, and guys like Red & Meth are the NBA superstars who are late in their careers and have the choice to either stay in the league and accept fewer minutes & fewer shot attempts(Jerry Stackhouse) or go overseas(indie) & continue to ball out(possibly Kobe in 3 years.). I could break the whole game down like this but end it here.....

  • John Blaze

    Even tho Ebro & Rosenberg some bitch ass niggaz, They had a point. The point got lost when Ebro said Sean Price. Sean Price, Tech N9ne, etc. is like the guys who chose to play basketball in Europe instead of the NBA, still legends, still hall of famers, they just made the decision stay where they were. Joey Bada$$ like any other new guys in rap history are like high school or college stars(Minor Leagues), your wondering if their game can transfer to the NBA or will they just go overseas(indie) to do their thing. They had the idea right, they just explained it wrong.

    • Nah..

      But that's the problem with N.Y. radio stations, they don't support the artists like Atlanta, L.A. or even florida. They always want to act like they are the gatekeepers of hip hop when they are not really supporting local artists and come up with that bullshit that they have to earn to be played and minor leagues. Did Jay Z come out straight to the big leagues? NO. Hot97 is full of themselves and Rosenberg thinks he the expert in hiphop when hip hop is the most complex art form of music.

  • Killem Dafoe

    Sean Price should've been on Wu-Block

  • NIGGA I'M THROWED LIKE AL GOLDEN

    LMAO do people even listen to the radio anymore???

  • Twizzy

    complete bs, when NY stations dickride the music thats playing in the south, they dont check into whether that southern artist has put work in, they play it because its being played heavy in the south. Meanwhile in the south and midwest they support their local artists at radio as long as the music is good period. This new kid Trinidad James from ATL for instance is 1 mixtape deep..just 1. and getting love. and he was recently on hot 97. point proven

  • Anonymous

    if i was Sean Price i would've smack that bitch up...they act like they are doing a favor to hiphop when they play 2chainz,Wayne,Ross,Gucci and all that garbage all day on the radio...

  • poppa large

    sick of you conformist spineless non hip hop listening clones dissing P. Sean has one of the best albums out this year. here's the thing though: his music is not for the pretty people and the brainwashed robots, his shit is raw real rap- straight up grimy beats and skillful multi-syllable lyrics, crazy voice and hard delivery. not for pussies. 95% of the people who comment on this site dont know shit!

  • Fuck Brooklyn

    LMAO damn this nigga P all over twitter talking mad shit about Hot 97 if you said you don't care then don't care nigga

  • triPAUD

    yeah this is pretty ridiculous. Hot97 wants to act like they're all righteous, hiring nicki minaj to headline their show then calling her a sellout, "she isn't hip hop". Then they call Sean P who is taken as a hardcore hip hop act and say he's minor time? you can't have it both ways.

    • Word

      That Ebro is a program director who is talking way too much. Why didn't just stay behind the scenes like regular program director. I can't stand Rosenberg sometimes. He thinks he knows everything.

  • P !

    TRUTH ... Fuck White Ass Rosenburg and Bummy Ass No Talent Darden

  • P !

    HOT97 is for internet Hipster Honkeys,,Real talk,,look at all the Broadcasters. Bunch of shook as white boys thats never dug a shovel in dirt..Self Proclaiming ass Arogant white boys think just cuz they Mom was fuckin Puff in the 90s they got Wrek

  • Fuck Brooklyn

    Sean Bitch later wrote "There's a 50% chance of you not liking me but its a100% chance I don't give a fuck.......P!" you gave a fuck enough to get mad over this shit, didn't you bitch?!

    "Mic Tyson" wasn't Sean's best work (it was the first time he failed to advance his concepts at all) but it was still very good and-- here's the key-- Hot 97 was, is and always will be straight dogshit, including Peter Rosenberg who, whatever his better intentions, will never be more than a token there in every possible way. ALBUM OF THE YEAR is KA "Grief Pedigree" btw.

  • Anonymous

    I love how he talk like Sean P was never big time...His prime time may have been years ago because the game took a different more commercial direction while Duck Down and most others stayed true to what they do...But hip-hop fans didnt stop listening...I got every Sean P album and have performed with him many of times...Seen him pack clubs all over the place...How you gonna say he is in the minors on the come up? P been in the game for years and STILL makes better shit then 98% of commercial rappers...But because the hip-hop community got something against age, this is what happens...In the rock world, you can be 40+ years in the game (Rolling Stones, etc) and still pack stadiums..But becuase of our immature snot nose hip-hop community, your considered over the hill once you hit your 30's even if you still make dope ass shit...It's pathetic

    • Word

      I can't stand their show. That Ebro dude is full of shit and Rosenberg thinks he knows everything. Ebro is going to run that station to the ground because he's doing way too much for a program director.

    • Joey keys

      Preach on! A-Men! Ebro needs a serious reality check. Instead of being a sell out & peddler of HIT HOP that he pumps, he should get a HH 101 course, & seriously rethink his strategy of running this horrible station!

    so how long did it take Trinidad James to get major league play?

    • Noname

      Good point with Trinidad James. It's obvious that HOT97 is just a bunch of d*ck riders. They can't even keep it really real. F*ck em all.

  • Anonymous

    I guarantee you if there was a channel that played nothing but underground and 90's/early 2000's shit, they would get a LOT of listeners...All these tennie boppers and shit listen to syndicated radio...There's a lot of us in our later 20's, 30's, and 40's that still listen to what we consider classic and REAL hip-hop...

  • Gary

    I never listen to radio... didn't even know there was a cat named eyebrow as a dj... but I know exactly who Sean P! is. Peace goes out to Duck Down for selling records that matter with no radio. Thank you, Tru Hip Hop Represent-er.

  • Anonymous

    95% of their audience would change the channel if Hot 97 would play that stuff. I almost wish it would happen tho, like Hot 97 woke up tomorrow and said "THAT'S IT. FROM NOW ON ONLY UNDERGROUND REAL RAPPITY RAP HIP HOP ON OUR STATION"........ Then, 6 months from now when it went out of business, I could go back to the rap nazi's and ask them "Well, now what are you gonna cry about"??? Although I'm sure those whiny faggots would come up with a conspiracy theory to comfort themselves with anyway.

    • Joey Keys

      Typical non sensical young ass who is thumbing his nose @ the roots of what HH is TRULY about. What you don't realize is that is what HOT 97 USED to be about. Now it's all about pumping that non sensical psycho babble, on a repetitive basis, and calling it quality music. Then we have drones like you, who constantly defend it. SMGDH!
