BRAND BRAND NEW Podcast from the big man Dj Storm. He presents us with a new mixed cd called:
2 Turntables & a CDX, which boasts: 227 instrumentals / 88 accapella’s all mixed, scratched and cut
together. A definite musical journey with Mister Storm! Feel free to also browse on his other podcasts as well!
BRAND NEW Dj Khaled banger that features Mr Rozay Rick Ross & Kanye West. Kanyeezy is displaying another side of his skills on beats that i’m sure most fans wouldn’t expect, but works quite well. This track was featured by Funkmaster flex tonight and had all new york tweeting about, that and some argument over some credit given/not given by rap radar. Not too sure no more, dude’s beefing too much lol… Enjoy
SO GLAD Lil jon & Kontrol touched this one up, because i have so skillfully avoided playing this tune. Like this, i feel less credibilty issues if need should be to play it.
If last month’s Forbes list didn’t tip you off, DJing can be a lucrative business. When the annual number-crunchers revealed their 2012 list of The World’s Most Powerful Celebrities, dance music had a couple of notable entries: Tiesto taking the #84 spot with a $23 million annual salary and relative newcomer Skrillex hitting #92 with $15 million in annual earnings.
But if you were wondering what sort of dough the rest of dance music’s big names rake in (including Forbes’ conspicuously absent David Guetta), website Celebrity Net Worth has released a list of – by their calculations – the 30 Richest DJs in the World.
It’s no surprise that it’s Tiesto sitting in the #1 spot with a cool $65 million net worth; Celebrity Net Worth even going so far as to suggest that Tijs will be the first ”$100 millionaire DJ” in the world within the next five years. What is a bit more curious is that Skrilly only enters the list at #21 with a comparatively modest $8 million net worth, which – with 20 other DJs between him and Tiesto – seems to contradict Forbes’ list. Rounding out CNW’s top 5 are Paul Oakenfold, Paul van Dyk, John Digweed and Armin van Buuren, all earning upwards of $40 million a year. Poor David Guetta hasn’t even cracked the top 10, instead taking the #11 place with an estimated net worth of a mere $25 million.
It’s not clear where Celebrity Net Worth are getting their (somewhat dubious) info from, but they’ve thrown up some interesting numbers: apparently Avicii charges $75,000 for a one hour set, while Deadmau5 rounds his set fee up to a cool $100,000. PvD, they reveal, charges in the area of $250,000-300,000 a show and Paul Oakenfold allegedly commands a mega $300,000 a gig. You can see the full list below – question is, do you believe it?

Ok so just a little recap, Pusha T threw a couple of jabs at the Wayne and YMCMB camp. Oddly enough, as 1/2 of the clipse, he did have a street anthem with Birdman with the single “what happened to that boy” in 2004. But hey things sure have changed since then. Now Lil’ Wayne replied witha diss track called “Ghoulish”. He also dropped this on his twitter page
Finally had a bit of time to put together part 2 to my dancehall mixes – included here are the latest and some current dancehall hits – a lil’ sumthin’ sumthin’ to hype you up before the club. Also if you are asking “well, where is part 1?” you can still get it right here
