Artists and their representatives ask me all the time: “How do I get played on your show?” or “How do I get an interview?” Well, the answer is simple. Send 1 ORIGINAL song to our email HipHopCornerRadio@gmail.com. There is a chance it will get played in our segment for evaluation of up and coming artists called “Bump It or Dump It”. We play the song live on the air and everyone in the studio gives feedback as to whether they would “bump” the song or “dump” it and explain why. If the listener thinks they would play the song again for their own enjoyment, it gets a “bump” and if not, it gets a “dump”. Be warned: criticism is honest and harsh but fair. To give you a vague idea of how critical we are, I would guess that from all the songs we have evaluated, which is probably over 100, less than 10 songs have been bumped by everyone. We get a lot of submissions so there is no guarantee that your song will be played. I usually play songs from our Hip-Hop Corner email. So make sure you send your 1 ORIGINAL song to HipHopCornerRadio@gmail.com. Good luck. Keep grinding. And keep following your dreams. I wish you the best.

Pretty regularly, The Hip-Hop Corner will invite a special guest of interest to be interviewed live on the air. Guests are interviewed by DJ Boss Player. To see a list of notable guests who have been interviewed on the show click the link on the main page entitled “Past Guests”.
Hip-hop news & gossip. Hosted by J-Haze.
The final song played every episode of The Hip-Hop Corner is “Umi Says” by Mos Def. The playing of the song is dedicated to DJ Boss Player’s late mother Florence Agbonyitor who passed away in 2003. May her soul rest in perfect peace…
