Sean "Greenspan" Combs said in an interview with MTV this week that hip-hop is in a recession. No "fucking" shit. The master of the remix -- and the obvious -- blames DJs for the industry's current nosedive.
"People have figured out the formula when they make records for the radio, and DJs ain't DJs no more," Diddy told the interviewer. "They don't expose you to the newness."
Hmm. The producer who brought you the caricature known as Mase laments the current lack of musical originality? Diddy coincidentally pimps his upcoming LP as refreshingly "experimental."
P. Diddy pushing original sound -- now there's a sign the game is in a recession.
