Any and everyone who works in entertainment especially in the music biz knows that the game is not for the faint of heart. Sometimes dreams come true, and others have their dreams turned into living nightmares. The perks can be tremendous if you’re fortunate enough to find favor with the gatekeepers.

“URGENT: – Effective Immediately: DO NOT AIR: “Trae tha Truth” on our station. No interviews, no calls, no comments, no posts on our website, no station twitter, no station facebook, no songs in mix show no verses on remixes, or songs in regular rotation. No exceptions. The current online postings will be removed shortly. We wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Thank u. Have a great weekend!”
