So I send them my resignation and begin to work out the 2wks notice. Let me break down the LOCAL chain of command. There is the BIG BOSS (General Manager), the Semi-BOSS (Operations Manager) and Supervisor (Hating Ass Program Director).
So the BIG & SEMI BOSSES are freaking out and wanting to schedule an emergency meeting. They asked if I was leaving because they wanted to throw me on the HipHop Station. I said, "Well, that got the ball rolling." They were like, WHY? I had to break it down like this,.....
First off, I don't want to offend anyone but there are too many negative images affiliated with that industry. I have worked too hard to make a difference and work towards the positive, to contribute to the positive. I could understand if it was like an old school show and I got to play nothing but conscious stuff but we are in a different time. I mean, HELLO! people can't even give Quincy Jones a freaking award at HIS own magazine without folks showing their asses. It's ignorant. I don't want any part of that. I AM HERE TO REPRESENT!
So, I told them that my solution would make everyone happy. They said, "NO, because now we have 2 problems. We'd have an opening on your station and the HipHop station"
They said that they thought I had great talent and fed me that, you could bring positivity to HipHop crap. Still ya'll, IT AIN'T ME. I'm a 35yr old, educated Black woman with no children....IT AIN'T ME! When I listen to HipHop, It's that old PE, that old Beastie (yall know yall loved BRASS MONKEY) and it was Tribe/Jungle/DeLa. The Stuff today is CRAP! Alot of it is derogatory and disrespectful. I'm with Ice T when he says REAL GANGSTAS don't rap/dance/entertain. It's total B.S.
Okay so ANYWAZ, they asked if they could sit on my resignation. I was curious as to why. The other dj's would resent me because they'd think the company payed me extra to stay. HATER Supervisor would make my life HELL, and even on the Urban end, the HipHop audience could spot an imposter. They said they still wanted to fix things.
Meanwhile, Hater Supervisor sends me an email with this question,....
serious or just a strategy?
I WANTED TO CUSS THAT MUTHA FREAKER OUT!!! But, I maintained my composure and sent back a happy face with devil eyes ******insert menacing Vincent Price laugh******
13 more days, to stay strong......
