    was surprised at how many people shared the same sentiments hence the thread.



    a former employee spoke up













    Dave Easts vigil for Nipsey was a label thing.




    Bobby Konders daughter worked there a while.




    and plenty others followed suit.

























    Nas apparently expressed concern.


    its wild how over the years there's been so many stories there are of people getting jobs on these media sites or labels and thinking it's their dream job and will be their career only for it turn out to be completely disheartening for them.

    That's a shame. We have a thread about these companies in our culture with white gate keepers. I forgot the name. You add this with the Big L doc debacle, doesn't look good for MA. I always wondered how people got hired there.

    In a nut shell, Mass Appeal teased a short doc about Big L. People were angry D.I.T.C had no input. His people came out and trashed the doc. They are working on their own doc. Peter said he tried to reach out but nobody got back to him. They eventually pulled it. I actually sided with MA because it's a tribute doc with younger rappers from Harlem talking about his impact. They never claimed to be a bio doc. But it is what it is. Some posts from MA were deleted.

    It’s obvious majority if not all of these Hip hop publications are ran by white execs.

    Damn that place is trash. I really wish we had a media company that We fully controlled so young creative and business minded black kids can get the opportunities they deserve without this type of bs.
