Dr. Dre’s Beats headphones have been banned from being on camera during any NFL broadcast. This information is according to a new deal between the league and Beats rival Bose. The NFL confirmed that Bose received a set of rights that allow it to prevent players and coaches from wearing other manufacturer’s headphones during televised interviews during preseason, practice, and game day. Beats issued a statement in response to the agreement between the league and Bose and argued their headphones are apart of many athlete’s rituals and how music can have a significant positive effect on an athlete’s focus. Beats by Dre makes up 61 percent of the premium headphone market in the U.S. while Bose has a distant 22 percent.
Bone Crusher thinks his hometown’s new emcees are garbage. Bone considers himself one of Atlanta’s leaders in the crunk era. The era of crunk is sometimes called by critics a mainstream downfall of lyricism in rap music, but according to Bone today’s music is getting worse. One of his points was music is not about money but instead about doing something you enjoy. He feels rappers should learn basic principles of how to make a record and it’s not all about money. If you enjoy your craft the money will come in abundance.

What do you think?
