Music industry veteran Paul Porter has released the book Blackout, an explosive look at the corruption running rampant in the music industry. Blackout details Porter’s experiences in the music industry, from his first stint in radio in 1976 – when the busing riots in Boston sent him scrambling into WRBB at Northeastern University – to his tenure at BET and some of the nation’s top-rated radio stations.

Blackout is a chronicle of my successes and failures, my dreams and disappointments in the music business,” Porter said. “It’s filled with the secrets the music industry desperately tries to keep, the stories no one tells. I wanted to expose the truth about the industry I love.”

Blackout takes readers on a ride through Porter’s whirlwind of media jobs, working for and with some of the music industry’s most colorful, well-known and scandalous players. It explores the insidious role of payola, an illegal practice that is firmly embedded in the music industry, deep in the grooves like tracks on a vinyl record. And it offers an inside account of how corporations killed Black radio and erased Black identity from mainstream Black music — and why Porter chose to fight back.

The book has already garnered the endorsement of major cultural figures, including Chuck D of Public Enemy, who called Porter a “guru and visionary” and said “Blackoutwill truly explain why things are the way they are.”

Tim Winter, president of the Parents Television Council, called Blackout a “compelling, personal story about how the music industry really operates” that “also offers an enlightening message of hope for the music industry and for its broader impact on our culture.”

Joy-Ann Reid, host of AM Joy on MSNBC, said “Blackout is essential reading for anyone who cares about the history and future of African-Americans in the multi-billion dollar music industry.”

Paul Porter has been a force in radio, music and television for four decades. His deep, seductive voice has resonated on the airwaves of many of the nation’s top-rated radio stations, and he spent 10 years at BET as Program Director, consultant and on-air talent. Porter’s expertise and activism have established him as a thought leader in the radio and music industry, and he is often sought out by major media outlets including CNNMSNBCSiriusXMEntertainment Tonight and FOX News to comment on music, culture and race. He is the Co-Founder of music industry nonprofit Industry Ears and music and culture website Rap Rehab and currently serves as Program Director at Orlando’s low-power FM station The Wire 98.5.

Blackout is available for purchase at here.

Mr. Porter was on our show talking about Blackout: My 40 Years In The Music Business.

During our conversation, Mr. Porter talked about:

– Why he believes everyone is important
– Memories of growing up in Queens, New York and his start in college radio
– When he knew that music would be his life and his first big break
– Some of his major obstacles and how he overcame them
– Why he feels his book has been successful
– Some of the problems with the radio industry today including payola
– How did his stint at BET happen and thoughts about BET today
– The effect of video on Black music
– The story behind the book and the response to it
– Some of his favorite artists
– How can the consumer change the music industry
– His advice for people who want to get into the industry

YOWronto is an annual International musical extravaganza produced by FreshKut Productions Inc. Presented as a celebration of Canada’s 150th birthday, YOWronto is a tribute to Canada, boasting a diversity of activities.

This two day musical event takes place at the Woodbine Mall on Saturday July 1 and Sunday July 2, 2017. Streamed live using the Peeks social commerce platform, YOWronto will be accessible by an international audience.

Vendors will showcase cultural arts & crafts along with a tasty variety of Caribbean foods and delicacies to savour.

Artists will entertain and music lovers both locally and internationally will earn LIFETIME rewards for supporting stakeholders.

YOWronto was founded with the primary goal of revolutionizing the way music & festivals are marketed. By combining a bricks & mortar event with live streaming and social rewards technology patrons, sponsors and exhibitors alike experience the thrill of a live event and the distribution power and convenience of the Internet.

Furthermore, to ensure that music lovers continue to support artists and sponsors that drive and support the festival, YOWronto integrates powerful social rewards technology.

Michie Mee is known within the music industry for her unique rap style of combining reggae and dancehall with hip-hop. Many successful artists have followed in Michie’s footsteps using this gifted technique. With over two decades in the entertainment industry, the Juno nominated rapper and actress is not only an inspiration for female musicians, but also all artists nationwide.

Michelle McCullock was born in St. Andrew, Kingston, Jamaica, later relocating to Toronto, Ontario at a young age. While in her mid teens, Michie began crafting her rap style, which quickly gained attention by both Canadian and American rap artists. Michie would also travel frequently from Toronto to New York City giving her more exposure amongst the hip-hop elite.

While performing in rap battles, Michie introduced a new formula by being able to switch back and forth between North American English and the Jamaican form of English known as Jamaican Creole or Patois. This daring move would ignite audiences and leave often Michie’s rap battle competitors stunned.

During a concert in Toronto, fate stepped in and Michie was introduced by Boogie Down Productions to perform on stage. This was a major accomplishment for a young Canadian MC to receive such recognition by a successful New York rap group. Michie would go on to team up with DJ L.A. Luv and form the duo, Michie Mee and L.A. Luv. By the late 1980s, Michie was featured in the Canadian hip-hop compilation Break’n Out, which was produced by B.D.P. members, KRS-ONE and the late Scott La Rock.

By the ending of the decade, Michie Mee would make history by signing with First Priority/Atlantic Records, making her the first Canadian rapper to sign with a major record label in the United States. Elements of Style was Michie’s first single with L.A. Luv. The single was successful in the U.S. and the duo also appeared on the compilation The First Priority Music Family: Basement Flavor on tracks Victory is Calling and On This Mic.

In 1991, Michie released her debut album, Jamaican Funk: Canadian Style, which infused reggae and dancehall elements within the rap album. The hit single, Jamaican Funk, received a Juno Award nomination in 1992.

Throughout her career, Michie has opened for many artists including Will SmithSalt n PepaHeavy D, and LL Cool J. She also had the pleasure of touring with Queen LatifahAudio Two and fellow Canadians, Maestro Fresh Wes and the Dream Warriors. Although she was a powerful force within the hip-hop culture, Michie’s musical talents did not stop there.

She went on tour with singer Sinead O’Conner and was a founding member of the metal band The Day After, formally called Raggadeath, once again showing her skills as a versatile musician.

In 2000, Michie released another album with Koch/E1 titled, The First Cut Is The Deepest, which would bring forth yet another hit single Don’t Want To Be Your Slave. The single featured Esthero and earned Michie another Juno nomination. That same year, while promoting her new album, Michie also toured hip-hop super group, Public Enemy.

Although Michie has a profound love for music, she has also showcased her talents outside of the music industry. As a member of ACTRA, she has acted in movies and television shows such as Short Circuit 2Night HeatLa Femme Nikita (CTV), Da Kink In My HairSoulfood, and has made a special appearance co-hosting TSN’s Off The Record. She was also co-host of Canada’s longest running rap radio show, The Powermove Show on CKLN Radio in Toronto.

Michie has starred in the groundbreaking hip-hop series Drop The Beat and appeared in the blockbuster In Too Deep starring LL Cool J and Omar EppsMy Baby’s Mama with Eddie Griffin and “Chicks With Sticks” featuring Jason Priestly. Michie’s vibrant nature in a work environment is frequently noted and she is often asked to host events, which she does on a regular basis.

Aside from her life as an entertainer, Michie is also a mother who makes it one of her duties to keep involved with today’s youth. Knowing first hand the twists and turns artists often face in entertainment, Michie is an avid supporter of children striving to achieve a good education. Michie herself left university after her music career began to soar and has always spoken openly about the importance of education.

Michie Mee has had an outstanding career in entertainment thus far. With her currently working on hot new music, acting roles and a feature in the 2011 CBC hip-hop documentary Love, Props and the T. Dot, this trailblazer’s saga still continues. Michie Mee’s reign as Queen is far from over.

Alexander Williams is from Lancaster, California. That should tell you a lot. Nonetheless, he also feels it’s necessary to state that he’s a Boston Celtics fan, an avid thinker, and a sap for experience. He cares about his disadvantaged Afrikan and Native American communities and worries that tomorrow could very well be his last day here on Earth. He’s a communist, an anarchist, and a pacifist. He was always the smart kid that you would tell your younger brothers about and the only guy you know with Dr. Seuss Chucks. He also raps, but then again he also writes, and then again he also acts, so he just does a lot of things.

Outdated masculine stereotypes damage everyone, so we’re doing something about it through diverse stories that show humanity is more important than terms like ‘man up!’.

Being ManKind Vol. 1 is a collection of inspiring stories told by men from all walks of life. Each is an honest account of their experiences, ranging from the ordinary to the extraordinary. From one man’s use of comedy to break the stigma around anorexia, to a paratrooper who lost his legs on the battlefield and now rows for Great Britain. They offer an opportunity for boys to draw on a diversity of experiences to decide for themselves what it means to be a man. The book wants to show that once you get past polarised gender expectations, you find that the only unbreakable code in humanity is kindness. The idea is that through the stories told, boys and men will be inspired to forge forward as kind and confident individuals, both for themselves and those around them, allowing everybody to succeed together.

For every book sold, another is donated to a school or youth organisation, so that these stories can start to create conversations from the earliest age. The project wants to build a community to make a positive change. This cannot be achieved through one book alone, but hopefully this is the beginning of something much bigger. People from both ends of the gender spectrum are being encouraged to join the conversation and inspire a new generation of kind men.

As Anthony Joshua writes in the foreword, “It’s easy to follow the crowd rather than make your own decisions. Be open, be honest, and be an individual thinker. We have the blueprints of those before us to build our own futures.”

We have just launched a Kickstarter campaign to ensure this conversation can grow to reach the widest possible audience. With this extra support, the Being ManKind team hopes to broaden the conversation by partnering with schools and like-minded charities to create an open-source educational outreach programme, and expand on the stories already told on a new digital platform.

Darshan Sanghrajka, Co-Founder & Creative Director of Super Being Labs, live on our show talking about Being ManKind Volume 1.

During our conversation, Mr. Sanghrajka talked about:

– Some of his manhood journey and his company Super Being Labs
– The story behind the book including some of the challenges producing the book
– He shares a little bit on some of the men profiled in the book
– How has this project has effected his manhood
– The reaction to the book
– His messages for men and those who love them

If you’ve ever referred to Toronto as “Tdot,” a term coined by K4ce, a local hip hop legend or by its more recent name, “The 6ix” influenced largely by the OVO team and rapper Drake’s recent album, ‘Views from the 6,” then you are familiar with the far reaching influence of Canadian Hip Hop.

Recognizing the potential for hip hop to transcend intergenerational barriers, Dr. Mark Campbell, Ontario Certified school teacher and Professor at Ryerson University, and his team, created the Northside Hip Hop Archive (NSHH) and a series of accompanying archival exhibits to re-engage students at all grade levels and preserve an integral piece of Canadian history. The NSHH is intended to be a tool to produce engaging, new curriculum content for school boards across Canada.

Dr. Campbell currently teaches two inclusive courses on Race & Racism in Popular Culture from Antiblackness to Intersectionality and Sonic Innovations in Black Musics: From Dubplates to Controllerism at Ryerson RTA. “Uncovering hip hop histories in Canada are essential work if we are to imagine an inclusive, multicultural and diverse country. Without access to the successes, innovations and creativity of previous generations, we cannot provide in the classroom a solid context the next generation to strive towards excellence,” says Dr. Campbell.

Since the archive launched in 2010, there have been multiple archival exhibits held to raise public awareness. On March 4th 2010, NSHH held its first exhibit, the T-Dot Pioneers Exhibition in Toronto. A year later, CBC and NSHH joined forces to launch “The Hip Hop Summit,” a week-long celebration of Canadian hip hop.

In November of 2016, NSHH Archive in association with the Royal Ontario Museum, Ryerson University and The Masterplan Show at CIUT 89.5fm launched its first ever Archive Fellows honouring the lifetime achievements of Toronto’s DJ Ron Nelson from CKLN’s Fantastic Voyage Show (1983-1990) and the visual art of Hamilton’s Leon ‘Eklipz’ Robinson.

Also in 2016, the NSHH started the “I Was There” project, a community activation project honouring the work of various hip hop culture pioneers in five cities across Canada which started in 2016 and is continuing into 2017. “The I Was There project is about acknowledging the Architects of hip hop communities in several Canadian cities as well as about creating public awareness and appreciation about hip hop’s legacy in our country,” says Dr. Campbell.

The “I Was There” project celebrates the accomplishments of little known hip hop legends in Canada, adding personalized archival collections and narration to the existing archival content on www.nshharchive.ca. This year’s exhibits will be held in Montreal, Saskatoon, Hamilton, Toronto and Regina.

Over the years, participants have included legendary Canadian names in hip hop such as: Dalton Higgins, Citizen Kane, Ghetto Concept, Michie Mee, Kardi, K’naan, Dream Warriers, Saukrates, Shad, DJ Ron Nelson, Leon’ Eklipz’ Robinson, DJ Kool Herc and more.

Recently, Mr. Campbell was on our show talking about the Northside Hip Hop Archives.

During our conversation, Mr. Campbell talked about:

– Some of his early hip hop memories
– The story behind his hip hop show that he started in the 1990’s at eighteen years old for seventeen years
– How did Northside Hip Hop Archives start
– Some of the stories and people that are featured via Northside Hip Hop Archives
– How has the Toronto hip hop scene has changed
– The future of the Northside Hip Hop Archives
– The state of Canadian Hip Hop
– What is on the website
