Saturday Night Meltdown 10p-Midnight
At 14, most boys have their heads in the clouds and eyes on the girls. But it was at 14 years of age that Hot Sauce realized the early bird gets the worm, and the early hustler gets the dollar.
His career began in 1994 at the now defunct KLPL in Lake Providence, LA. While anyone would be impressed with an adolescent night jock, Hot Sauce wanted more. By 17, he was mastering the turntables, and was involved in everything around the radio station, from programming to production.
In 1997, Hot Sauce moved to New Orleans, where he was heavily influenced by jazz and blues. He continued to perfect his craft for two long years, then got a call to take over the airwaves in Monroe, LA. KRVV was the place where things really started to open up for Hot Sauce, and in no time, he was not only releasing regional mix tapes, but was the go-to DJ for just about every club and concert venue in the area.
Working his way across the country, Hot Sauce was transferred to Meridian, MS (WJXM) in 2002, then Dothan, AL in 2003 to do nights at WDBT, which has since changed formats. In Alabama, he earned the title “King of Nights,” and is most known for throwing his birthday party at an unknown club and letting everyone drink free. Wonder why the party was a success…
In September 2004, after receiving a call from Clear Channel, Hot Sauce “caught a midnight train” to Columbus, GA and began on-air duties for start-up station WBFA 101.3 The Beat. There he was the midday jock, Music Director, and had an award-winning mix show. It was also in Columbus that he was introduced to the Legion of Doom Record Breakers and the Core DJ’s.
Always looking for a bigger audience, Hot Sauce moved further east to North Carolina to do nights at WIKS 101.1. In the short time he was there, he made a huge impact; his show was Arbitron rated #1 in all demos, and no one will forget the love he showed to local and regional artists.
From there Hot Sauce brought his southern flavor back to Louisiana in 2007, to do nights in Shreveport for KMJJ. His “Local Artist Spotlight” guaranteed his place in Shreveport’s radio history; whether it was spinning it in his mix show or putting it on the countdown, if a local artist had a hot song, you heard it from Hot Sauce first. And his #1 ratings, numbers which tripled the competition’s, cannot be contested.
North Carolina missed Hot Sauce, and apparently the feeling was mutual. He was back doing nights at WIKS like he never left. Then he left, knowing he would never be replaced…
The Midwest was a different animal. As he adjusted to the cold weather he brought a little heat along with him to Milwaukee. He Handled night duties at V100.7 WKKV and rocked clubs on the weekends
You can currently hear Hot Sauce “Spicin’ up your nights” in Montgomery from 6-10pm on 105.7 WZHT. With his proven track record, all you need to do is sit back and listen…
Drake finally claps back with a rap verse on Future "Sh*t" Remix....
It was previously reported that after hearing Kendrick Lamar's instantly incendiary verse on Big Sean's recent single "Control," Drake, responded:
"I didn't really have anything to say about it," Drake says of the verse, which has so far inspired responses from A$AP Rocky, Joey Bada$$, former Los Angeles Lakers coach Phil Jackson and too many others to count. "It just sounded like an ambitious thought to me. That's all it was. I know good and well that Kendrick's not murdering me, at all, in any platform. So when that day presents itself, I guess we can revisit the topic."
I guess Drake changed his mind. He raps...
“I hear you talkin’ about your city like you run there/ Then I brought my tour to your city, you my son there,” he spits. “I just think it’s funny how they danglin’ the bait, but I’mthe one that’s killing ni**as on the hooks though.”
On Friday (December 13), Complex released a recording of Wale threatening to knock members of its staff out. Today (December 16), Complex addressed criticism it has received due to the release of the recording.
"The decision to publish Wale’s irate phone call to a Complex Media editor last week was not made lightly,"Complex Senior Editor Rob Kenner writes. "In the 24 hours following the D.C. rapper’s Wednesday afternoon rant multiple meetings took place during which serious debate ensued amongst Complex’s music department and senior staff. Some felt that we should work to resolve the dispute behind the scenes. Leaving aside the particulars of which lists he made and which lists he missed this year, Wale is an important artist with a loyal following and—despite his mistaken belief that Complex editors harbor some sort of grudge against him—we recognize the value in maintaining a healthy working relationship with him and the rest of his MMG affiliates.
"Others, myself included, maintained that any time anyone threatens violence against any member of our staff, that threat must be taken seriously and addressed," Kenner continues. "Our intention was not to retaliate or sensationalize but simply to document a credible threat against not just one reporter but our entire team—from accounting to ad sales, IT, HR, even college interns. Moreover, from a journalistic point of view, this was a legitimate story: a public figure making threats against anyone, let alone a major media company, and as such, it’s news.
Beyonce's iTunes exclusive becomes Apple's fastest selling album ever...
600 + k in the US
200 k world wide.....
According to Apple Insider, the self-titled album from Beyonce reached 828,773 albums sold in just three days. It also broke the U.S. first-week album sales record with 617,213 copies sold domestically in the first seven days.
The album, which can only be purchased through Apple's iTunes Store, was also a global success, reaching the No. 1. position in a total of 104 countries.
TV One announced today that production on season two of its wildly popular reality series R&B Divas LA will begin this month on-location in Los Angeles. In addition to returning cast members Chanté Moore, Lil’ Mo, Michel’le and Claudette Ortiz, the second season will feature new divas Chrisette Michele and Leela James. The series is scheduled to premiere in Q2 2014...
It remains to be seen whether Beyoncé has just “changed the game,” as some are asserting, but she’s definitely changed the look of next week’s sales chart. At this point, some are projecting 200k+ for the album’s first three days of availability, enough to push Garth Brooks to #2. Can she hit 300k?
Drake, as well as his OVO Touring company, has been sued for making more than $200,000 off of a Chicago concert promoter from canceled tours.
SPIN reports that court documents filed Tuesday (December 10), allege that Drake canceled two agreed-upon performances, increased agreed-upon prices, and that a third party spent half of the money on an unrelated event.
The lawsuit, filed by Status Entertainment, details the communication between the company and Drake's representatives about a show for March 2012. Status alleges that OVO agreed to the show at an asking price of $250,000, and Status transferred $100,000 over, but the concert was canceled. OVO allegedly failed to return the funds, claiming that another member of Drake's camp spent it on a separate event.
