DJ Premier of Gangstarr spoke out about his disdain for commercial radio DJs in an interview with ChartAttack.com. “The conglomerates that own radio stations are giving these guys playlists, and they’re supposed to say ‘OK, in between these records I’ll throw in some classics from back in the day, then I’m breaking some new records’,” he explained. “DJs are supposed to break new records, but now, everything on their playlists is all they can pretty much play. Most DJs have to follow the boss, or else they’re gonna be fired. And they have the power to be like, ‘Well look, fu** you, all of us are going to do what we do or else we’ll all leave.”
