E-A-Ski has been around the Hip Hop game for quite a while and his work with rap legends, particularly those from the West Coast, is extensive.
“‘Burn Radio Burn’ is really just attacking the powers that be and just saying it’s a lot of music out there but we only hearing one set of music and it’s not to discredit anybody’s music,” he said via a segment of today’s (August 27) DX Daily. “We came from the streets. We didn’t have to have radio, so now, these artists feel like, ‘If I have no radio, I have no career,’ and that’s not true.”
E-A-Ski also talked about the current state of Hip Hop and how “Burn Radio Burn” is a counter to a lack of balance in rap today.
“I just think the conditions of Hip Hop right now is in the state of programming,” he said. “The more Hip Hop has gotten more commercial, the more it has gotten to the point it has kind of ostracized a lot of music. When you’re hearing one style or set of music it really kills the industry and all the other that is great out there. There’s nothing wrong with a certain type of music but when there’s no balance that’s when Hip Hop starts crashing and burning.”
