    This move is probably a combination of two things. First…. He realized how much loot he’s missing out on by being controversial. Somebody let him know that since he’s always in some sh*t he may as well get paid for it.

    And secondly, he probably caught some heat for all of the stuff he’s been saying. A big mouth and big liabilities go hand in hand. They probably got tired of his sh*t.

      I have little issues with homie, but he’s funny at times. All I hope is Hot97 gets back to business again. I wonder who’s stepping up or stepping in from the out?

    97 need an NY nigga running that shit

  • Spirit Equality

    Get an NY OG to take over as PD. It would be crazy if somebody like Marley Marl or Premier was the PD.

    ps: Yes, I know Premier is originally from Texas, but he’s been living in NYC since the late 80s.

      lol, you are 100% right. It has nothing to do with him doing a reality show on VH!, it has to do with the fact that HOT 97 has dropped to #16 in the New York market, The Morning show is losing to the Breakfast club.

  • I can’t tell when is the last time I turned on a radio station since social media stepped on the scene….Radio is dead…The payola effect killed it for everyone.

    On his watch, he’s had a DJ “allegedly” beat his wife, as well as other women, and another DJ get caught with prostitutes multiple times and they both got to keep their jobs with little or no punishment. That alone would be enough to cost most people their jobs. Then add to that the ratings and the fact the The Breakfast Club is nationally syndicated and about to be on Revolt TV and you can see where Hot 97 see the need for a change.
