Pandora Radio follows us @dadecountyradio or @daoneradio and our partners on twitter and also looks to us for what music they will accept or not. I can tell you from personal experience that the music business is way more complex than you might think and to make things worse these laws change almost every week.
Pandora’s first comments came from Westergren speaking at the SF Music Tech conference in San Francisco. “There are a couple artists making over $2 million on Pandora,” TechCrunch quotes Westergren as saying. “Some artists making over $100,000 a year.” Those are pretty straightforward comments. Artists do indeed make money from streams on Pandora Read more at http://www.billboard.biz/bbbiz/industry/legal-and-management/business-matters-the-truth-about-pandora-1007978032.story#07eLytBCp8lgIYqk.99
LL Cool J says if you want to vibe with him, just vibe. If it’s business just say that’s what it is. In other words, if you attach hidden strings to your social relationships then you might be a “Ratchet”. What do you think?
Check out the new song and LL Cool J’s official website for more info.
I haven’t seen LL Cool J since he came thru and played basketball in the club with us in Miami back when he first started his career.

Thanks to those very special people who have publicly supported Auder Limits over the years. As with any young business endeavor things are always bound to change. That being said, they proudly announce that the team has recently undergone a name change in order to continue publishing new and original music from dedicated artists.
The company will no longer be doing business as Auder Limits. The team is pretty much still the same but will now be doing business as Dreams Come True Records.
Here’s a sneak peak of the team behind the scenes and information about it’s current project, “Better Part” by Money Rod ft. Leo produced by Huge Music Group for Dreams Come True Records & Publishing.
(DCT Publishing (ASCAP) is currently seeking other publishing partners for future releases)
Please follow them on Twitter @DCTPublishing
Money Rod and other artists I’ve worked with achieved their production and or label deals as a result of their hard work and a little push in the right direction because they followed my logical and practical advice. I can help you reach your goals and it’s cheaper than you might think. Call the station today and lets set up a 5 min. consultation and you can decide if it’s worth it or not.
We are currently working on the radio distribution for this and other projects. Look out for this song on your favorite radio station soon.
One of the CD’s in particular caught my eye because of its artwork and craftsmanship, which made it stand out from all the hand-written home-made CD‘s around it. That CD was a mix-tape by an artist called JIGG305 and it was his first mixtape entitled, “Test The Dope”.
Underground radio stations don’t make much of an income in the way of revenue from advertisers for obvious reasons. One of the ways the DJ’s earn a living is by charging the artists who want their music promoted a fee for promoting it. JIGG305 , however was one of those artists who I don’t recall ever paying this underground radio station a fee for promoting his music. “Test The Dope” was just one of those mix-tapes that had such a huge buzz on the street that DJ’s enjoyed playing it and listeners were constantly requesting it.
JiIGG305 was soon a regular at the radio station. I personally got to talk to him about the music industry on many occasions and had many good conversations and bad ones with him. I would constantly emphasize to him the things that needed to be done in order for his career to take off and not end up like so many other rappers with bad record deals. (myself included) He always strongly disagreed with me.
Whether my argument was correct or not remains to be seen but one thing for sure JIGG305 is without a doubt one of Miami’s hottest underground talents. As a music consultant though, he will always be known to me as the client that got away.
You can still find out what JIGG305 is up to by visiting his you-tube page @ www.youtube.com/JIGG305ONLINE
Back in 2008 DJ Khaled paid us a surprise visit. It’s not every day we read about celebrities giving back to the community. DJ Khaled, who still has the most popular radio show in Miami (WEDR/99 Jamz) and who’s 2007 “We The Best” album reached #1 on the Billboard Independent Chart, visited our Downtown, Opa-Locka – Miami, Florida studio’s.
It would be hard to accuse DJ Khaled of forgetting his undergroud radio roots.
We were surprised to see DJ Khaled’s signature Rolls Royce Phantom pull up to our front door. DJ Khaled stayed around for interviews and questions from local aspiring independent artists and promoted his album. We still have much love for DJ Khaled but it’ s not often we get to see him. A lot has changed since 2008. Follow us on on Twitter for more updates@DadeCountyRadio
Swazy came to us in 2007 for radio & publishing support and has since signed with Miami DJ Laz’s VIP Music Group.
DadeCountyradio.com founder , Smokey recalls, “I remember explaining to Swazy that although he had a real good promotion network it would only take him so far and that once he finalizes a few key steps that his career will take a whole new direction.” That proved to be true and Swazy continues to put out quality music and remains in touch with his friends and fans.
Here are some links for Swazy Styles:
