Doug E. Fresh and Slick Rick, two of hip-hop 's biggest legends collaborated in the early months of 1984 to create one of the most influential songs ever. Released in 1985, on the B-side to The Show, "La Di Da Di" garnered considerable media attention, making it one of the earliest rap songs to blow up nationwide.

For artists without a history in recording music, the label is more involved in providing the artists with producers, recording studios, song writers which may give the impression that the record label controls the artist’s vision of making music. Chance the Rapper has openly talked about his dislike towards record labels trying to force artists into writing controversial songs for promoting their company.
Lawrence Lessig’s research on piracy and copyright laws suggest the issue began long before Napster’s free website of burning music for personal use. In fact, stolen content was first documented one hundred years ago when Thomas Edison’s inventions were stolen before copyright laws were in place.
In Walter Olson’s “How Copyright Law Makes Sample-Based Music Impossibly Expensive...If You Want To Do It Legally”, Olson reports that there is an increasing number of copyrights out now, and artists must make sure their song is clear of copyrights to publish it. If it is not, they have to pay an expensive sample clearance fee. Olson asserted that ”Capitol records would lose 20 million dollars on a record that sold 2.5 million units”(3).In other words, it is nearly impossible to find all copyrights, and make a profit off the artwork after paying for copyright clearance fees.Artists should not have to pay expensive copyright clearance
Now many people are gonna be upset and won 't agree while they too have reasonings why they shouldn 't need to sell out to make more money.

As a teenager, I see that my peers are completely diverse when it comes to a music style. Everyone has their own mix of artists and songs that may or may not be completely similar. I sat on the edge of a pool table as I watched my best friend 's attempt of having an open DJ station at her party. She wanted everyone to be able to listen to what they wanted. The idea was not bad and neither were her intentions. With her ability to be friends with people in different friend groups, she should have thought about this being a problem. I heard a wide variety of music from rap, death metal, and many boy bands. As the night went on there were fights, arguments and a decrease in guests. Looking around the room it came to my attention that all of these people do like music; not one of them suggested that it should be an awkward silence. I started to think about how much of an impact music has on individuals and social groups, or whether it has one at all. I went home and began to view how music affects me and my peers.
There are a number of other music streaming services in the market, the main competitors being Apple Music and Pandora. The first music streaming service I ever used was Apple Music and the selling point for me was the integration of Apple Music with your existing iTunes library, so you see all your music side-by-side.

In 1968, both Martin Luther King Jr. and Robert Kennedy were assassinated, leaving the United State in a state of uncertainty. With a nation in need, the Woodstock Music and Art fair arose in 1969, standing against the background of the past year (Evans and Kingbur 20). Max Yasgur, a dairy farmer who leased his farm to the Woodstock promoters, once said to the millions of fans at the festival, “The important thing that you've proven to the world is that... a half a million young people can get together and have three days of fun and music and have nothing but fun and music, and I God Bless You for it!” (Gerdes 4), and that is exactly what the crowd of more than 400,000 fans did. A great deal of people will argue that Woodstock was nothing
