Kirk Baird of the Las Vegas Sun spoke with those behind today and tomorrow’s EAT’M (Emerging Artists and Technology in Music) conference which will showcase the Hip-Hop Action Network’s effort to build a “hip-hop grassroots movement.” Minister Benjamin Muhammad commented, “The purpose of that is to promote greater understanding, greater dialogue of the positive value of hip-hop. We’ve been at work for a year (and) made, what we feel, is good progress. The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) rescinded itself, the fine it had put on a radio station for playing Eminem’s music earlier this year. And the FTC (Federal Trade Commission), in its latest report, acknowledged that the recording industry was now making progress on the issue of marketing music which had explicit content. So, we’re making progress.”
