Radio Station Stops Playing Rick Ross, Lil Wayne


Originally posted on AllHipHop.com:

A small radio station in Michigan has opted to remove both Rick Ross and Lil Wayne from their playlists.

Both artists have been particularly controversial in the past few months for a variety of reasons, ranging from drugs, to Emmett Til and, most recently, Rick Ross lyric that seems to advocate date rape.

“Many would say both rappers have taken their lyrical content too far and offended too many. The family and estate of [Emmett Till] have released a statement of disapproval over Lil Wayne’s disregard and disrespectful lyrics.

EPIPHANY

I am hair Stylist with 10+ years of experience in the field, radio personality, and at one point I aspired to be an actress. I ventured off to explore what my new love for the entertainment and music industry could offer me behind the scenes. I ended up learning more about Public Relations and the role of a PR professional. I have experience with promotions, marketing, networking and consulting. My goal is to build a strong foundation, expand my knowledge and skills as a business professional, and expand my experience, talent, and respect as PR professional. I want to earn the trust and respect of my clients and colleagues in the field by proving that I am capable of providing above average services. What I bring to the table is determination, motivation, and a strong will to succeed in any project that I take on. Failure is not an option and obstacles are only lessons that we learn to help conquer anything that may come in the way of achieving victory at the end of the day.

My advice is to never put limits on yourself, you can do and be who and what ever you put your mind to and work hard at doing. I love living life without limitations, and I love the fact that people who know me push me to follow my dreams. Where there is a question mark for you there is certainty for me. If I want to do it, I am going to do it, and if I fail, at least I know that I tried.
