“DJ Danger Mouse didn’t pay EMI, but he can’t, it doesn’t appear that hip hop style artists are able to join the country club. So he didn’t ask.” I don’t understand what this means. If he asked them and they said no that’s one thing…but to automatically assume they (labels) are going to decline because it’s hip hop is just like a kid sneaking out at night because they thought their parents would say no so just didn’t ask. Ripping off artists work is wrong - period. No matter how much we hate the labels, it’s the artist and all the supporting folks that get hurt worse. If that artists work was required for DJ Danger do do his work then he should pay them. And given the popularity if the labels decline he could plead directly to the artists of the music to get the rights. There’s other options rather than theft.
