Representing The Hip Hop Culture
The Planet, along with Chicago’s own Square-One of B-Side Radio, have joined forces to bring you the week in review in Hip-Hop and current events, along with the occasional special guest and some music to keep you moving through your day.
In this episode of IllSide Radio, we interview the incomparable Wendy Day of the Rap Coalition, a not-for-profit artists’ rights advocacy group. Day is a veteran of the music industry, brokering deals for such luminaries as Cash Money, No Limit, Eminem and David Banner, just to name a few.
We go in depth with Wendy on the industry and what it takes to be a commercially successful artist. When is it right for a new artist to search for a major label deal? When should they be independent? What can an artist do to get leverage when signing a record label contract?
Day discusses 360 deals, the probability of Kreayshawn’s signing being what people think it is and much more, including how being anxious can put an artist in a situation that weakens their bargaining power. Did Webbie and Lil Boosie get a raw deal? We discuss this and so much more with Wendy on IllSide Radio.
So sit back, relax, and take a ride on the Ill Side.

I will still for the moment continue to post the show here but hope you all will follow IllSide Radio Podcast on twitter (@illsideradio) or our RSS feed for show updates. We submitted our show to iTunes as well, so hopefully we’ll be in the iTunes podcast directory rather soon. Odeisel and I both appreciate the support from our listeners and hope you will join us on our journey to bring the only show to discuss hip hop with no filter to many more ears. Thank You.
