I heard a song on the radio the other night and it bothered me to my core. Maybe you've seen it performed on Late Night with Jimmy Falon. Its the new song "B.M.F." (Blowing Money Fast) from Rick Ross aka Ricky Rozay (huh?). The song is from his new #1 selling album (180,000 sold in the first week) 'Teflon Don'. As soon as I heard the chorus I became enraged. It starts like this:
"I feel like Big Meech, Larry Hoover..."
Right there, in my car, in my own way - I lost it. Why? Because I saw what was happening. What was happening was a destructive idea moving from idealistic imagery, to becoming a living, flesh and blood folk hero. There are a few ways to promote & glorify a lifestyle and one of those ways is the celebration of its heroes. But on the surface, one would think all this song is promoting is a lifestyle of glamorous spending and luxurious living. After all, the song is called "Burning Money Fast" right? WRONG!
Cross Movement Records hinted at rebuilding their roster after recently announcing the signing of k-Drama to release his upcoming album 'We Fit: The Workout Plan'.
We have confirmed a rumor that Cross Movement Records is in fact re-building their roster, and have signed the talented and hard working Philadelphia artist, Young Joshua!
Young Joshua will be releasing his new album 'Thinking Out Loud' through Cross Movement Records on September 7, 2010. The album will feature R-Swift, Braille, J.R., and more. Official press release and tracklisting after the jump.
