y'all can't copyright no beats!
I received my first warning/take down notice from Blogger this week, for uploading this of all things. I emailed them back (to no response)to ask exactly who's copyright I had violated as the record in question isn't an unofficial release and I was curious as to who had beef: the dude that put it out, Ice Cube, Puffy, DMX or Survivor. That's 4 different record labels.
In the 3+ years I've been doing this I've generally stayed away from uploading commercial releases and things that are easily available to purchase but I was suprised that in over 400 posts that was the thing that got picked up on. It wasn't even listed on Discogs until a couple of weeks ago.
Anyway, at the risk of getting this whole thing shut down, I'll attempt to press on.
