CBS Responds to Over Censorship Claims

Tuesday, February 2nd, 2010


After websites such as NYMag’s Vulture, Miss Info’s blog, as well as  this one decided to speak up about the over censorship we heard (or didn’t hear) on last night’s East Coast broadcast of The Grammy’, CBS released this statement to The Associated Press (via MTV) today:

“It was a rousing musical performance, but words were edited from the live telecast that didn’t meet our broadcast standards,” said CBS spokesman Chris Ender. “We have great respect for artists’ creative freedom, but there are certain things you can’t say, or sing, on television.”

Again, if the artist in question omitted the words themselves, was there really a need for the blanket censorship? How about we sat through Lady Gaga’s face for three hours and didn’t get to hear half of the song.

Miss Info’s (who has some experience with these kind of things) hunch:

I know what the real problem was. When you hit the “dump button” for a curse word, it takes time for the system to reload. So…it actually takes out more than just the offensive word. Live-censoring is a sloppy science. When the awards aired on the WestCoast, they were able to finetune the clean-up.

That might be true, but throughout the whole broadcast they were showing scenes from upcoming moments before the commercial break, how did they let the one “iffy” performance be the only live footage they aired. Damn shame.

Uncensored: Lil Wayne, Eminem & Drake – Drop The World + Forever

Monday, February 1st, 2010

They must have told these guys in advance that if they swear, they’ll be censored… because they barely mentioned any curse words. That whole part at the beginning where they censor Lil Wayne… he was already censoring himself, so why was there 5 seconds of dead air on the broadcast. Plus there was a time lapse between the time they taped it, and the time we saw it – they could have easily gone back to fix it. These guys only aired one rap award and it was the safest one, of course didn’t give a fuck about this.

Props to Mel for the rip.

Someone tell Taylor Swift to sit her ass down.

Oliver just threw up a comparative essay of last year’s Grammy rehearsal for “Swagger Like Us” and this photo of Lil Wayne, Drake & Eminem rehearsing “Forever.”

Man how time soars.

Paul Rosenberg (Eminem’s manager) was quite fond of this moment.

Look out for Nickelus F’s upcoming project called Season Premiere.

Related: Nick speaks to HipHopDX about being on the original version of “Forever,” initially featuring only him before Lil Wayne/Kidd Kidd got on it. Someone should leak those reference tracks.

Ghostface Killah – Forever + Info on R&B Album

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009


Apparently there’s a new Ghostface Killah album coming soon. KILLAH!

Ghostface Killah – Forever

Bonus: Nas, Ghostface Killah & Lil Wayne – Hip Hop Forever (Produced by DJ Green Lantern)

(Blend off of DJ Green Lantern’s Sirius Invasion mixtape, same sample.)

UPDATE: Sumit from HHC just came through with some album info:

From what I am told Ghostface’s new album is going to be a little different. Its going to have more of a R&B type sound. It will be more of the Ghostface we heard on Beyonce’s “Summertime” Remix or Ne-Yo’s “Back Like That” Remix. From what I understand, the first single will be with Mary J Blige.

We’ve already known about the R&B aspect to the album, but the fact that there’s already a prospect single is interesting.
