I Want My MTV Back

YouTube Preview Image
Once upon a time there was a revolutionary channel that broadcast music videos, all day everyday. WTF happened? Can you remember the last time you actually saw a music video on MTV? Now the only things you can see on there is “reality tv” where we gets looks inside the lives of knocked up trailer trash that had to drop out of high school or fist pumping guidos that will die of skin cancer within 15 years. I’m not going to lie. Jersey Shore is one of my guilty pleasures. In an almost sadistic way I enjoy watching these shows sometimes. Shheeeeit, I wouldn’t mind getting $100,000 an episode for a camera crew to follow me and my crew around acting the fool but I digress. The ratings for these shows are outrageous so there will be no end to it anytime soon but what about the music?

MTV’s sub station BET is very similar. What happened to the music and exposing new artists and groups to the world. I know I’m sounding old here but “back in the day” lots of new groups and sounds made their debut on BET. They still have 106 & Park but that is basically the videos of the same 10 songs played on the radio all day. Now its mostly cheesy sitcoms, infomercials and religious programming. Rap City was a staple of urban television for the youth but that was phased out. I was fortunate enough to be invited as the guest on Rap City 5 times while they were on the air.
Do check out some highlights above.
