TTPBA mu’bbe mad!

This post on Facebook by hip hop artist Chromatics and his label Highway Records is a good talking point to discuss the rights of performers vs the rights of broadcasters. What do you think?

I not only disagree with the TTPBA–I think their stance is immoral, possibly illegal, and short-sighted–I think we who love original, authentic and indigenous music should speak up against it.

Call your favourite TV and radio station NOW and request this music. If we all demand it they surely will begin to see the error of taking hip hop and related music for granted.
