This is the latest episode of the syndicated FuseBox Radio Broadcast with DJ Fusion & Jon Judah for the week of May 13, 2009 with some new and classic Hip-Hop & Soul Music, news and commentary.
This week's commentary focused on the absurd bill that Rep. John Conyers (Democrat - Michagan) is trying to pass through the U.S. Congress called HR848, that if it passes, will have various NEW music costs are passed on to all sorts of FM radio station owners, with the high possibility that great deal of Black-owned Radio Stations (and just regular radio station period) to shut down due to various economic issues.
We talked about the potential impact this could have culturally in the U.S. for not just the Black Community, but for the music community at large from music artists, to listeners and others.
We also had a great interview with independent Hip-Hop MC, producer, graphic artist & activist Ravage the MeccaGodzilla (http://www.ravagenrumble.com).
We covered everything from Ravage's influences, being one of the founders of G.A.ME (the Grassroots Artists MovEment) in NYC, his history with the music industry from being a member of the supercollective Monsta Island Czars (MF Doom, MF Grimm, etc.) and beyond, Ravage's vision of the growth of Hip-Hop & where it needs to go, his latest album project (the "Erroars" production LP) & upcoming music situation, the international scene and more!
We do have a new Black Agenda Report segment but no new Direct EFX segment this week.
