I heard back in 2009 that Bow Wow was joining Cash Money Records, I thought to myself, he doesn’t seem like the type of artists for that label. At the same time I was wondering what type of music he would make with them. So I waited, and waited and waited and nothing ever happened. Eventually I didn’t really pay him no mind because, well he’s Bow Wow who cares. This week Bow Wow announced that he is leaving Cash Money Records to go back to the artists that got him his start in the first place, Snoop Dogg and Jermaine Dupree. He’s leaving Cash Money because he was getting frustrated making albums and they never come. Birdman was basically shelving him indefinitely, most likely to concentrate on putting out his other heavy hitters like Nikki, Wayne and Young Thug (wait what, Young Thug?!?). So let’s wait and see what’s good with his new music that he makes with Snoop and Dupree.
No more Cash Money. No bad blood though! All love… (This is my answer, so when i do interviews pls dont ask the question) thanks.

The British invasion of rock bands in the 60’s was revolutionary, changed music, lives and the way people saw the world. According to a study by scientists from Queen Mary University of London and Imperial College London Hip Hop was much bigger in the 90’s. Their study of over 17,000 songs over a 50 year period, the researchers studied trends in style and diversity as well as how harmony, chord changes and tonal quality changed over time. “We can actually go beyond what music experts tell us, or what we know ourselves about them, by looking directly into the songs, measuring their makeup, and understanding how they have changed,” said lead author of the study Matthias Mauch. “The rise of rap and related genres appears, then, to be the single most important event that has shaped the musical structure of the American charts in the period that we studied,” Mauch said. The study found the Beatles, Rolling Stones, Eurythmics and Duran Duran paled in the face of Hip Hop in the 90’s. A revolution that is still going on today shaped the way pop music is made with the help of drum machines and synthesizers from the 80’s. With that said, here’s a copy of my Old Skool Hip Hop mix with all the joints that revolutionized music.
