Free Drama, Cannon

The RIAA’s recent targeting of DJs Drama and Don Cannon, two of the most respected mixtape DJs in American hip-hop, once again proves the organization is woefully out of touch with its market. It is apparent that the RIAA is unable to creatively reimagine a coexistent marketplace in the age of the internet. Its constant, misguided retaliation only appears desperate and spiteful, and alienates those music lovers and buyers that would potentially keep them alive.
It has been argued that mixtape DJs like Drama and Don Cannon in fact float the traditional record industry by exposing listeners to new music, somewhat like radio stations. Drama and Cannon are musicians, they are curators, and they are artists, but they are not thieves.
