Great idea! I certainly think this can make a difference...and you should write an editorial to the the Sun Times, the Tribune, the Defender, Streetwise and the Reader to tell them of your campaign. Maybe one of them will publish it and then your action will be a catalyst for others.

I have to agree that some of the music that do get radio play has been tweeked here & there with the language and once you buy the album, all you here is profanity thrown around like it means nothing. It is quite disturbing and there's really nothing for us to physically do about it. The artists who are great at what they do but aren't AS well known seems as though it's because they know what to say and what not to say. There are artists like DJ Clark Kent who probably comes up with great music yet isn't too famous in the mainstream world. Music videos are getting really sexual too. There's not a single rap video you can see without any sort of nudity. This world has become some place where the only way to make fast money is to abuse profane language and show nudity. That's why I'd just rather listen to DJs and their music. There's an event in Chicago on the 28th of June @ the Alhambra Palace Restaurant from 7pm - 11pm. Dice Raw from the Roots & Truck North will be performing live! It's all free and all you have to do is to make an RSVP! Check out http://www.yarisversusyaris.com for more information. I know this because I work with them. And I doubt there will be any mainstream profanity at this event!

Great idea!

The problem is that this music has now reached beyond the ears of its "intended audience." Many "others" are listening to and supporting this music.....moreso than "we" are.

No doubt, we can do our part. I think the letter is a GREAT idea, and a great start. But if we're wondering why we don't see a change in the prosperity of those offending artists......^^that^^ might be why.
