Washington, D.C. - A who's-who of musicians and singers, including stars from Motown, rock and roll, country, rap and jazz, today released an open letter to be published in this weekend's Billboard Magazine opposing Pandora's plan to cut artists' pay when music is played over Internet radio. Click here to view the letter.
The stars praised Pandora - "We are big fans" - and celebrated the company's commercial success. But with massive growth in revenues and a successful IPO under its belt, they asked why Pandora is pushing Congress to slash musicians' pay. "That's not fair and that's not how partners work together," the open letter explains.
"These artists have joined together to tell Pandora it's time to go back to the drawing board. We all want Internet radio to succeed, but it won't if it tries to do so on the backs of hard working musicians and singers," said musicFIRST Executive Director Ted Kalo.
Internet radio companies such as Pandora are pushing Congress to pass the "Internet Radio Fairness Act," H.R. 6480/S. 3609, which could slash by 85 percent royalties paid to musicians and artists when their songs are played over Internet radio. Musicians and singers across all musical genres depend on these royalties, which are often their only compensation for their work.
"This issue is critical to the tens-of-thousands of recording artists we represent - all of whom rely on this digital performance revenue stream to make a living," said SoundExchange President Michael Huppe. "It is important that we protect artists and the long-term value of their music, which is, after all, the foundation of Internet radio."

DUB Mag just put their feature interview with Lupe online, it also can be found in their last issue. He talks about his car collection and more. Peep a snippet below:
“I got a Shelby Daytona Coupe replica, picked up a 1967 Austin Healey 3000 MK replica and I’m looking at a Series 1 Jag from the ’60s,” he says. “When I first moved to L.A., I bought an Audi A4 wagon before I stepped it up to a Ferrari 575M, then I got one of my first cars that I actually loved; a 2000 Mercedes-Benz SL 500 that I had the boys at Platinum [Motorsports] construct for me.
After that, I went on a Ferrari craze and bought a 465 GTA, a 1986 412 which was super duper clean to a point where I never drove it at all and a 400i, which is a total basket case of a Ferrari, but still a favorite car. There’s also a 1991 [Honda] NSX first generation that’s all black and kind of crazy.”
