Diplo is showing artists how to take their destiny into their own hands

It is only a matter of time before artists realize that they do not have to place their faith in others anymore. The revolution is constantly happening in the digital space. Now BitTorrent – once the music industry’s scapegoat, because people were using it for so called illegal filesharing – announced a distribution and payment model, where the artists and publishers keep 90 per cent of sales. None other than Diplo is accompanying this announcement with the release of his debut album “Florida” via BitTorrent Bundles.

“Make it yours”: Rick Rubin takes us back to school (Video)

“I never met anyone that focused”, says Rick Rubin‘s former NYU-Rommate Adam Dubin in the Rolling Stone film Dawn of Def Jam. In the ten minute film Rubin visits his old Dorm Room, the place where it all started. The first Def Jam record actually had the adress of that room on it, which made LL Cool J send his first Demos there. So Rick Rubin was literally taking folks to school.

Listen closely, as the legend basically gives you the secret to his success: going against what was established at the time and not being afraid to fail. “It really was about the DJ’s place in Hip-Hop, being in a way equal to that of the MC”, says Rubin.

What happens, when you serve just that to an audience with taste, can be seen in this footage of various Drunken Masters live gigs of 2013. And yes: you can eat your insalata mista con pollo, too.
