Picture of the Palms Hotel with only A M lit in honor DJ AM

Briefly after DJ Am's death, The Palms Hotel and Casino Las Vegas Lights up Only The A & M of their sign in memory of DJ AM their former resident DJ. I got really choked up when I read that post on twitter today. Really hit me hard and I started crying. I really miss Adam already. Now it's Michael Jackson's birthday and we lose two within months time it's just too much.
The only pictures we were able to find of the partially lit sign came from who had posted an email featuring links to DJ AM's mixes and wrote a little something in his honor. They also dedicated their September members section banner in honor of their fallen friend DJ AM, Adam Goldstein.

Our Dear Friend, Superstar DJ, DJ AM Died in New York City This Week

Sad News: Adam Goldstein, Known as DJ AM found Dead in New York City Apartment.

R.I.P. DJ AM - You will be missed.
Photo of DJ AM with DJ Emir the Night we all met up at Beta for DJ AM show.
Our dear friend Adam, better known as DJ AM passed away recently and was found dead on Friday August 29th, 2009. We twittered, posted comments, blogged and cried up all day after hearing the news. We had met up with Adam a few times in Las Vegas, Los Angeles and in Denver. He was always very sweet and kind to everyone around him whenever we hung out. Many entertainers have attitudes after being in the industry for a while, but not AM he was still rather melow and always polite.

DJ AM survived a private jet plane crash that killed 4 people and left Him and only other survivor Travis Barker, when we heard he survived the plane crash we were very relieved. Now that relief has turned once again to sadness as reports of his death have been confirmed. Our sympathies go out to his loving Mother, family and friends.
We were sad earlier this year when AM was unable to make it to a Bacardi Live show at Beta Nightclub. But we never would have guessed that we would never get another chance to catch up with Adam ever again.

DJ AM was a great DJ and really knew how to put together creative DJ sets. He had super fast scratches and great turntable techniques that he used to accentuate his performances. There were many DJs that admired and looked up to him as an inspiration, as well as many that hated on him for achieving the extreme success that they all could only dream of achieving.
Some hater DJs criticised AM on the Serato forums for setting up edits in the studio ahead of time to make his sets more precise and diverse. They claimed that to be a form of cheating. Adam responded most elloquently without any form of hatred to every point people had thrown out. The crazy part was many of the same people pointing fingers use pre recorded mashups they didn't even create. Worse yet many of the mashups supposedly created by other DJs were in actuallity carbon copies of remixes DJ AM would create live in his sets using actual accapellas and instrumentals as he toured the country.
DJ AM had a creativity and ability not found in many of today's newer lazier generation of DJs. Yet they were the ones trying to put him down for being more creative, when in fact all they were was jealous. Stil there were many that did recognize his abilities and his creativity no One can ever deny that he had that magical flair for rocking the set and tearing up the Ones' and Two's.

He was one of our favorite DJs in the world, he will be deeply missed by everyone in our offices and especially myself. - Vanessa V.

News article with facts about DJ AM's Death follows:
NEW YORK -DJ AM, the sought-after disc jockey who became a celebrity in his own right with high-profile romances and a glamorous lifestyle and survived a plane crash just months ago, was found dead in his apartment Friday. He had a history of drug problems.

Police found a crack pipe and prescription pills in the Manhattan apartment, said a law enforcement official, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the investigation was ongoing. Paramedics had to break down the door before they found him, shirtless and wearing sweatpants, in his bed around 5:20 p.m., the official said.
A friend had called police to say he was unable to get into the home in the trendy SoHo neighborhood. There was no evidence of foul play, and a medical examiner will determine the DJ's cause of death.

DJ AM, whose real name was Adam Goldstein, had talked openly about past addictions to crack cocaine, Ecstasy and other drugs, addictions so bad he once tried to commit suicide by shooting himself in the head — but the gun jammed. However, he claimed he had been drug-free for years, even swearing off cigarettes.

His spokeswoman, Jenni Weinman, said the circumstances surrounding his death were unclear. She pleaded for privacy for his family.

In October, MTV was to debut his new reality show, "Gone Too Far," in which he and concerned families staged interventions for drug abusers. In a recent interview with the AP, he talked about holding a crack pipe for the first time in years for the show and said he felt as though he had an angel on his shoulder for surviving so much turmoil.

Last year, he was badly hurt in a South Carolina plane crash that killed four people and seriously injured rock musician Travis Barker.

MTV did not have an immediate comment on whether Goldstein's show would air, but said in a statement that it "was honored to support him as he helped young people battle their own addictions."

Goldstein, 36, was a deejay for hire who performed at Hollywood's most exclusive parties and was admired by music aficionados. He also was famous for relationships with the reality TV star Nicole Richie, the daughter of singer Lionel Richie, and with actress-singer Mandy Moore.
Goldstein was critically injured last September when a Learjet crashed on takeoff in Columbia, S.C. The plane was transporting Goldstein and Barker, a drummer for the pop punk band Blink-182, after a performance; the pair had formed the duo TRVSDJ-AM.

Barker and Goldstein were burned, though Barker was injured more severely. Goldstein had to get skin graft surgery, but about a month later he was performing again, joining Jay-Z on stage.
At the time, he told People magazine he was grateful to survive.

"I can't believe I made it," he said. "I've prayed every night for the past 10 years. There's a lot more to thank God for now. ... I was saved for a reason. Maybe I'm going to help someone else. I don't question it. All I know is I'm thankful to be here."

Goldstein rose to fame several years ago as highly sought-after DJ whose beats kept the dance floor packed and clubgoers hypnotized. He was known for his deft mashups, a blend of at least two songs, and performed not only in clubs but on grand stages, performing earlier this year at the Coachella music festival in Indio, Calif.

He was to be one of the playable characters in Activision's "DJ Hero," a rhythm video game from the makers of "Guitar Hero" that uses a turntable-shaped controller. The game is set for release Oct. 27.

"We are deeply saddened by the loss of DJ AM, who was a tremendous talent, a trusted partner and friend to 'DJ Hero,'" said Tim Riley, vice president of music affairs for Activision. "We hope that his work on the game will be a fitting tribute to his creative spirit and musical talent."
Representatives for Moore and Barker didn't immediately return telephone messages seeking comment on the DJ's death, but other celebrities and fans instantly shared their reactions on Twitter, where "RIP DJ AM" was the No. 1 topic Friday.

"I'm stunned. Rest in peace Adam," singer-songwriter Josh Groban posted.

"I'm sorry to loved ones," musician and video director Pete Wentz wrote. "So unexpected."

Singer John Mayer wrote: "We're supposed to lose our friends to time, at an age when we're ready to agree to the terms of having lived a long life. Not now."

Goldstein was on Twitter just three days ago. He said he had just wrapped filming of the MTV series in Connecticut and was on his way to Atlantic City, N.J., to DJ. He also posted a lyric from the hip-hop legends Grand Master Flash and the Furious Five: "New York, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain't always what it seems."

Media and onlookers flocked to his apartment, creating a frenzied scene; flowers had been placed outside the entrance.

Fellow DJ Scott Schroer, known as Scotty Boy, said he went to the apartment after he heard the news to check for himself. He said he had known Goldstein for 10 years and had worked the turntables with him last week at the Palm in Las Vegas.

"He was the first to really be eclectic in the mashup scene," Schroer said. "He mixed rock and roll with hip-hop. He was a pioneer."

Schroer said Goldstein had been sober since he met him. When asked about the prescription pills, he said: "If you were just in a plane crash a year ago, I'm sure you would have prescription pills, too."

Associated Press writers Virginia Byrne in New York and Michael Cidoni in Los Angeles contributed to this report.

Email Came in Stating: How White People Destroyed Mixtapes

This email arrived in our in-boxes this morning and had us outraged. I mean seriously, Bad mixtapes and bad mixtape DJs isn't a race issue it's a global issue and a personal issue. The guy is blaming White people for ruining mixtapes. That couldn't be further from the truth...

The people ruining mixtapes are the weak DJs that don't mix. Weak DJs that simply throw songs on and shout over them adding nothing of themselves back into the music but their egos. It doesn't matter whether the DJ is White, Black, Mulatto, Hispanic or Asian, what matters is if they have skill, creativity and the ability to make us enjoy music we would otherwise pass up. there are many songs I never gave a second thought to, until a DJ made me hear it in a different way. These good DJs remixed it, blended it or simply made it hotter by juggling it back and forth with the hardest lines from the song etc... A good DJ makes and breaks records. A good DJ can create mixtapes that can be listened to long past the music's popularity phase. A good mixtape isn't just about the music that is on it, it's also about the DJs themselves and how they put it all together.

The guy doesn't even have the balls to sign his name to the email. Which to me totally discredits his entire argument in and of itself. And all the spelling mistakes, the not understanding the difference between "There and Their" non spaced words and bad punctuation and grammar don't help his argument much either, basically he calls himself out as uneducated. But worst of all , he is blaming One race for what I personally see happening with a multitude of DJs from every race and background.

Lets get it straight: It's not white people or white DJs, it's WHACK DJS that are ruining mixtapes. And to be fair as the guy states, it's not entirely their fault. If we as educated music consumers simply did not support these weak DJs and their extremely whack mixtapes, there would be no reason for them to continue making whack mixtapes. Lets be honest, if you only picked up mixtapes that had some degree of skill in the way they were mixed, produced and created, there would only be a handful of mixtapes out there. But because people bought drop style mixtapes, bought mixtapes without any mixing, any degree of DJ skill and any kind of creativity, there was a huge surge of new DJs trying to come up by doing the same thing.

There was once a time when mixtapes were out there to highlight a DJs ability to rock the turntables, to rock the crowd and to show the diversity and music choices they make. Now it's all about dropping the newest tracks and most exclusives as fast as possible with no creativity or originality.

I posted the email below so you can see how ignorant this guy is, and how ignorant racism is, no matter which direction or angle it comes from. Basically whenever you try and blame an entire race, an entire industry, or an entire generation for a general problem, you are not looking at all the facts and you are missing the bigger picture. Many ties people don't see the entire picture and only focus on the first thing that draws their attention.

Email sent to us by "Anonymous Music Guy"
"My name is Anonymous Music Guy. I do this for no personal gain or benefit ofself. This is just a personal weekly view of the music industry. Please pass this on:

Let's face it, white people today have destroyed the mixtape scene. Theyhave pilfered off of the black generation since the days of slavery, but nowit's a new era. An era of musical slavery. Mixtapes were once an outlet foryoung people with musical energy to put out a product with out enduring thecosts of putting out an album. Mixtapes were a way for DJ's to broadcast newand upcoming talent to the underground market with fans patiently waiting tosee who is next to blow. Now it's nothing but a pure bootleg market, wherenon Black/Urban DJ's basically steal peoples albums and music and put themout solely for profit and reputation.

We have guys like The Evil Empire, The Empire, DJ Smallz, Trapaholics, BigMike, DJ Drama and etc that are fucking the game to hell. These people haveno urban roots. They never lived in a "hood" and likely never endured a real"struggle". They have no real care for this culture. All they care about isthere fat white pockets getting bigger and bigger off of each new "nigger"that comes out. They don't break artist. They break artists banks. Literallyand figuratively. They put out mixtapes with no names to identify themselveswhich is basically considered bootlegging. I even heard of one certain "DJ"having a "hacker" on his team who goes into peoples Gmail accounts to steal"exclusive" music. This one DJ recently took GRANDHUSTLE rap artist YOUNGDRO's new album and put it out on a mixtape..... WHAT KINDA SHIT IS THAT?How could you profit off of someones hardwork you did not pay for? You didntbuy the beats. You did not cover the studio time so what makes you think youcan go out and bootleg there whole album and someone be cool with that? Whatkind of shit is that? What has the game come to?

Then you have the supposed "Big Shots" like DJ Drama who give nothing backto the black community. But it makes sense since he is not* BLACK*. I erk atthe sound of him saying "*NIGGA*" constantly. This guy has been supported byso many artists and in return to the community he charges outrageous pricesto the people he supposedly supports. Homie does nothing but scream all overmusic, I don't know how that makes you an "icon" that deserves 20 thousanddollars to make a "mixtape". I'm sorry sir I'll pass. His last album didnothing and went by quickly *with good reason*. Go back up north. Goodriddance.

The young black musician of today, with music dreams and major labelaspirations has to hope and pray that one day the BWM(*Big White Man*)sitting in his chair will cut him a budget and give him the time of day. If he ever gets that time of day, it's very much short lived for the simplefact of the corruption placed in the music industry today. It has spiraledand regressed into a piece of shit where young black people will sell there souls for a little dollar. The white man who profits will never care about the damage that is done, I don't blame him. I blame the enslaved black youth for not waking up. Don't be a slave to your music, be a owner!!!

Artists have totally devalued there music and self worth in the music world. Is there any coming back?? better yet, going forward?

Call me racist, call me what you want but WHITE PEOPLE have destroyed mixtapes.
Next week, how WHITE WOMAN have destroyed the Urban Magazine Industry
please pass this along.
Sincerely, Anonymous Music Guy"

So that was pretty much his letter blaming white people in general for everything the music industry and the mixtape industry is going through. Knowing damned well that the issue is much bigger than One race. The same can be said about the RIAA blaming mixtapes for the decline in music sales, look a little more internaly and realize that music in general has been dumbed down a few knotches. Produce better music and you'll get better sales, it's that simple. You can tell the "Anonymous Music Guy" is on a whole racial war rampage cause his supposed next email is labelled "How White Women (oh sorry Woman, singular LOL) have destroyed the Urban Magazine Industry." Come on now, this is straight up right up there with Hitler using the Jews as scapegoats to blame for his whole county's troubles then unite his German people through a manufactured common hatred and distrust as a means of seizing total political power.

Racism is a double edged sword and cuts both ways. Don't buy into any kind of racism or bigotry, always look into the issue deeper and find the true causes of strife. - Trent Williams

You can all hit this dude up with your response.
or just post your comment on it here on our blog.
here is his email address:

On second thought: Even though we'd love for him to receive so many letters he gets flooded everyday I realize now come to think of it, he'll probably just start spamming your inbox if you ever send him a letter. So you may want to just comment here on this blog instead.

DJ Emir Badder Than Bad Mixtape Tribute to Michael Jackson The Greatest of All Time

DJ Emir Michael Jackson Mixtape
written by Acrista B. for VIP Nightclub Magazine

DJ Emir: The Greatest Mixtape and Nightclub DJ of All Time pays Tribute to Michael Jackson The Greatest of All Time on "Badder Than Bad" the Mixtape

DJ Emir's Michael Jackson Badder Than Bad Mixtape has to be the single hardest Michael Jackson Mixtape on the planet!

DJ Emir "The King of Mixtapes" pays tribute to Michael Jackson "The King of Pop" the proper way, by mixing blending, remixing and cutting up Michaels hottest tracks and songs that were ispired by the legendary performer. The mixtape starts off with the hardest "Bad" remix I have ever heard and simply never lets up after that with 80 minutes of the best Michael Jackson original songs and remixes all mixed and blended the way only a real DJ can do it. His motto "real DJs Do real Things" really rings true on this ultra hot mixtape. It's almost as if Emir is trying to resurrect Michael Jackson himself through his mixing. I can almost imagine Emir trying to bring Michael back from the beyond like a doctor who refuses to quit on his patient, cause Emir puts that much passion to this mixtape.

Well known for blending in Old time favorites with todays hottest music both live in the clubs and on his amazing mixtapes Emir does the same with the Michael Jackson tribute mixtape, only to a whole new level. Our favorite remixes of the Badder than Bad mixtape include DJ Emir's remixes of "Bad", "They Don't Care About Us", "Man in the Mirror", "You Rock My World" and "I Wan't You Back" among others.

I was really feeling the "you Rock my world remix over Jamie Foxx's "Blame it" and The Jackson 5 "I Wan't You Back" reggae remixes. Those joints were pure fire.

DJ Emir's mixing and blending skills are amongst the best in the world and his mixtapes best of the best and always come through clean and crisp banging hit after hit through your speakers. The Michael Jackson mix is no different, It is an instant classic which really does Michael Jackson an honor and creates a tribute worthy of bearing the name Michael Jackson.

When I listen to Emir's Michael Jackson Mixtape I feel like Michael is still with us. Especially when Liberian girl comes in I feel like Michael Jackson is right there with me in the room. I want to cry everytime I hear that song. It's followed by another great song by another dead great, the late Tupac Shakur and his song "Letter to My Unborn Child" which sampled Liberian girl.

This mixtape appeals to Michael Jackson fans and mixtape fans alike with such a diverse musical selection and a very creative mixing style that compliments the creative genius that was Michael Jackson. Emir did this One right and created a masterpiece that is worthy of carrying on Michaels legacy of great music to new generations of listeners.

I'm submitting Emir's Mixtape for this years Mixtape of the Year competition cause it is worthy of winning. Considering Emir's Transformers Mixtape won last years mixtape of the year award and this mixtape is even hotter, It's probably a sure fire winner. This is definetly my pick for 2009 Mixtape of the Year.

Rest in Peace Michael we all miss you.

Cooking Soul Mixtape Tribute to Michael Jackson The King of Pop

Cookin’ Soul Presents Michael Jackson: Tribute To The King Of Pop
Written By XXL Magazine Omar Mixtape Massacre Review
Brought to you by

On June 25, 2009 I was lamping on my homie’s stoop when someone screamed out, “Michael Jackson is dead!!!” Naturally I brushed it off as some fiend’s rant of his imaginary world. But not too long after that my hip was blowing up with news of the King of Pop’s passing. Me being a mixtape head I was already imagining the countless kinds of mixes and blends that were bound to flood the hood in the coming hours and days. Sure enough I counted at least two compilation mixtapes, three blends and 34 mixes so far. But I must say that I was amped to see Cookin’ Soul drop a MJ tribute of their own. For the past minute their creations and production have satisfied my hunger in a way Snickers never could (that’s my favorite chocolate bar too).

The premise on this one was to keep the original Michael Jackson songs in tact and add rappers verses to it in hopes of making it a street banger. First we have Kid Cudi’s “Day N Nite” verse on MJ’s “Beat It.” The sped up vocals and overall demeanor just didn’t mesh well with Mike’s “gangsta” hit. But CS bounced back with back-to-back bangers when he threw in 50’s 2nd verse from “Like My Style” over “Remember The Time” and made something that’ll have the dance floor violating countless fire codes and paired Luda with “Bad” to create something pretty damn decent. Not to mention blending Wayne’s verse with the Jackson 5’s “I Want You Back.” Went together like peanut butter and jelly on a roll.

While I was disappointed with a few blends like Em’s “Real Slim Shady” verse tacked on to “Black or White” and Biggie’s “Nasty Boy” verse mixed into “Thriller” (“Rock With You” was pretty hot though), I was feeling the majority of the blends and the fact that this was a Michael Jackson mixtape. The blends were made to compliment his classics, not the other way around. CS didn’t try to add Neptunes production or a T-Pain hook into any of these songs. It was all Mike all day and until the end of time. Though Michael wasn’t the perfect human being, he was more than your average one. He was a showman who not only changed lives but literally changed the world through his music and his life. I just hope he finds the peace in his death that he could never find in his life. R.I.P. Michael Jackson.-The Infamous O

Obama Joker Posters Surface in Los Angeles

Obama Joker posters have begun to spring up in LA, as the Obama Joker poster is just the latest way to call Obama a socialist. Over the weekend, the Obama Joker Obama Joker Poster an Inaccurate Comparison poster was spotted in several areas of Los Angeles, and were brought to the Internet's attention by right-wing blogs. The Obama Joker poster is just a picture of Obama with Joker makeup on him, and the word "socialism" at the bottom. Aside from being something that could be done easily on Photoshop, the Obama Joker poster doesn't even accurately match up the two icon's beliefs.The string of Obama Joker posters were first seen in Los Angeles, with a few even getting to Atlanta.

The Obama Joker poster has the President wearing the same pasty white makeup, and scarred smile, made famous by Heath Ledger in last year's The Dark Knight.As if it isn't enough to equate President Obama to a sadistic, murdering terrorist, a more typical charge of socialism is made in the bottom of the Obama Joker poster. Nothing more specific is spelled out, and no one as of yet has figured out where these posters come from, or who made them.If President Obama isn't called a socialist once every day, then it is a day where his opponents must be busy taking a nap. The Obama Joker poster is a new tactic, however, albeit small time.

But using the Joker to paint Obama as a socialist isn't really that accurate at all.The Joker was many things, but was hardly a socialist. In fact, the Joker is the polar opposite of a socialist, and anyone who watched The Dark Knight would know that. Socialism is the result of an all powerful central government that runs every aspect of life - but the Joker subscribes to anarchy, one of socialism's polar opposites.If the Joker was a socialist, he would be destroying Gotham in the name of an all powerful state. Instead, the self-described "agent of chaos" nearly brought down the state itself, and all of its most cherished institutions, so that nothing could bring order to Gotham. The Obama Joker poster does very poorly in trying to paint Obama as a socialist by comparing him to an anarchist. On the other hand, if the poster was trying to say Obama was also a murdering, psychotic evil mastermind like the Joker, then that's another troubling matter altogether.

Other posters of Obama have also surfaced mirroring the original Joker Posters bearing similar messages.
It's hard for some opponents of the Obama administration to realize and admit that Obama was handed over the reigns of an already careening stage coach and asked to save an economy that already was on the brink of failure due to the mismanagement of the previous Bush administration. The same can be said about the "war on terrorism" which actually started way back with the First Bush administration and was then revisited by the son as the sins of the father were passed on to the son in this case. No one seems to realize just how severely the "War on terrorism" has affected our current economic problems. If you think about it we have been plunging money, resources and people who would otherwise be consumers in our own economy over seas to fight a non ending war on an elusive enemy with no face.

To make matters worse the war is taking place in a country that supplies much of our Oil and gas. And even while supposedly liberating these countries from tyrants Oil prices still remain high, so shipping prices remain high and our economy continues to suffer.
The American car manufacturers made the mistake of not looking towards the future earlier, and the future snuck up and hit them upside the head when they weren't paying attention.
Gas guzzling cars were still being manufactured in large quantities not realizing the American consumer's lives had shifted to a more eco-awareness mentality. As a result the American car manufacturers where already behind foreign car companies that had started focusing on gas efficiency, smaller cars, electric cars, hybrids and alternate fuels in much greater capacity.
Many people seem to forget that it was George Bush that signed the bail outs for AIG without making sure they were to be used properly and ensuring they would be paid back. A costly mistake which ended with AIG Ceo's being rewarded for doing a bad job.

Obama simply saw the mistakes of the previous administrations bail out efforts. Realizing that there must be some sort of controls set to keep companies from misusing the bail out money. You simply can't keep giving away money to people that don't use it properly. Bush just gave away the money and didn't have any control over how the companies used it, this resulted in a disastrous misuse of Obama stepped in when Chrysler GM asked for a bail out and perhaps went a little far as far as controlling the company's future by firing one of it's CEO's. This is probably what is causing the "Socialism" controversy, but really if another COMPANY paid a large sum of money to Bail out another COMPANY wouldn't that be called a TAKEOVER or a MERGER? And wouldn't the new company do the same thing, start laying off employees as they merge the two companies etc...

The way I see it if your business failed it failed, if no one is willing to buy your company out from you then you better have a going out of business sale to try and get all the money you can out of the closure of your company. The only reason the government steps in with bail outs on large companies is because the closing of a company of that size would leave so many people without jobs that it would create a much bigger black hole in the economy as there would continue to be a huge rippling effect that would affect other companies, retailers and whole markets.

Obama is simply exercising more control over the money offered in Government Bail Out packages. If you don't like it... Don't ask for a bail out, bail your own backside out of the fire.

Drake Collapses on Stage in New Jersey

Hot new R&B and Hip Hop sensation Drake collapses on stage at a performance in New Jersey.

This picture is of Drake laying down on stage after twisting his already injured knee at a concert in Camden, NJ. Drake tore his ACL in the past and was warned by doctors that if it happens again he might not be able to walk again.

Apparently Lil Wayne’s new protege Drake tore his ACL last month,and tried to perform onstage last night July 31,2009. While performing his hit song “Best I Ever Had” with Lil Wayne and the Young Money crew, he slipped and collapsed just seconds after it started, reports Access Hollywood.

There’s a reported Youtube video (below) of the incident that shows him being carried off stage while Lil Wayne finished the song by himself.

Drake confirmed that he’s doing good by tweeting on “Twitter”. He stated, “All is well.On the bus laying down… getting surgery this week but I’m walking.Thank my whole “Young Money” family for the help!”

Let's hope he will back on his feet soon and can safely continue the “America’s Most Wanted” tour. Our prayers go out to Drake that he may have a speedy and full recovery.
