Re: “Iggy Azalea’s minstrel show is imploding

The hiphopcracy of the hip/hop rap community is disgraceful. This article mentions "dependent on black traditions" (read "rap music") as if it had high moral and community standards, instead of built upon violence, greed, and abuse of women. Then they not only dare demand justice for someone that robbed a store, assaulted the clerk, and fought with a police officer, but also ridicule others who didn't "demand justice"?

I truly believe that rap music plays a part in how young people view and live life. In fact music in general does. You remember when people thought Judas Priest caused devil worship and suicide? Many metal bands were involved as well as the US GOVERNMENT. They had to go to court. Other artists also testified, for example Frank Zappa and Dee Snider.

And yet Rap has gotten pretty much a free pass (if nothing else by government agencies) on BLATANT themes. Why is that?

The rap and hip hop community has no right to destroy another artists life and career based on moral principles.

Re: “Concert review: Fleetwood Mac lands at Amalie Arena in Tampa

Considering the age of the band, it's very fortunate for those who got the privilege to see and hear them in concert in such fine form to boot. Yet another concert I missed :-P

Re: “Trending 2015: Musical predictions from the ridiculous to the sublime

Please pass whatever you're smoking. There is little chance the "younger generation" will open their wallets for what WMNF offers. The format changes mentioned include less music for the new generation during the day and not more. Mostly all the same deejays are returning to play a bland mix of the same music heard for years on the station. You'd be hard pressed to find one under 50 but those 60+ are well represented. The same age group of those that control every aspect of the station as well as the vast majority of the aging listeners.

No Merchandise? I'm shocked! At the very least I expected to see the Voodoo Gurus on here somewhere.

Re: “An Earful (Local Edition): Tortuga Festival lineup, an Alexander & the Grapes Xmas tune, and Benjamin Booker makes Rolling Stone’s 50 Best Albums list

Hows come cl is obsessed with touting ben booker as a "Tampa" artist when he didn't even start his band until after he moved away but not before telling everyone that he couldn't wait to get out of Tampa. Granted, he did return briefly to recruit his friends to play in his new band but ultimately, it was to just convince them to move away too.

Re: “2015 Grammy Nominations Announced

If Streisand's duets album wins, this would be the first time in the 56 year history of the Grammy Awards (LOL) that the voice of the most ecclectic singer that ever lived is included in an album which wins in a category that is NOT the Gospel one. The voice of Elvis Presley.....
