This give me a smile and horror in the inbox this morning!

In the email it says if you lucky person pay 50$ you can admit one of your songs for remixing by Twista but only one will be selected from the many we recieve!!

LOL, seriously first they try charging for remix stems to replace the falling sales and now we come to this, only thing this does to me is say 3 things!

1. Music industry is really starting to just live off the backs of aspiring musicians, it seems to becoming more and more apparent that its not in the industrys needs to sign new talent up but rather keep them unsigned and dangle a carrot in front of them, that way the money they make off this kinda shit would replace them, which has a musician disgusts me that some labels have swept to a all new level of shittyness!.
2. That the label(s) doing it are scrapping the barrell and are desperate
3. That twista is damagining his own reputation if he has one already.

Course this just my view so dont take offence if you like to pay to remix or send tracks to a remix competition, i just personally think its crazy.

Anyway random and got me thinkin about scene and stuff, i know at least 2 guys from my uni class that would do it! must wouldnt though thank fuck ! :).

Thoughts people?

Best

i know what i'd like to 'place' on his upcoming mixtape.

charging to enter a competition? isn't that gambling?

you know people who would fall for this? christ, don't let them do it! save them from themselves!

if i got this in my inbox i'd feel personally violated. it just cheapens music and is desperately sad.

Two things...

1. Who the fuck is Twista? (I'm guessing the guy in the picture, but this is the first I heard of him)
2. If some guy I've never heard of wants to remix my tune for his mixtape, he can fucking pay me.

So if you're listening Twista, sure I'll send you some stems to remix for your tape, that'll be £1000 please and I still own the rights, ok?

twista is a veteran of the rap industry. he has made his name known from rapping really fast, and able to control his 'toungue' to recite intricate delieveries of syllables in rapid succession.

that and he is an aging rapper whom his labels are looking for more ways to milk him
