Radio One Bans Matthew Knowles And His Artists

In response to what amount to shady dealings by Matthew Knows and his Music World Company, Cathy Hughes has banned Mr. Knowles and all of his artists music from being played or talked about on any of her Radio One channels. According to theybf.com here is what went down:

Cathy Hughes’ cable channel TV One is suing the BET Network, MTV and Music World Music for violating its exclusive rights to the Essence Music Festival. Mathew Knowles' Music World Music is in the mix because his company brokered the deal for the Essence Music Festival broadcast with TV One.

But now, Mathew is being accused of re-issuing the content BET, MTV and BET’s Centric Network despite TV One’s four-year exclusivity agreement. Messy......

So in response, Radio One has pulled all of Knowles’ Music World songs and artists from their radio stations nationwide.

“All Radio One personnel were told to pull all Music World artists out of rotation immediately and indefinitely! We were told that the mandate came straight from Ms. Hughes and that there would be ramifications for anyone playing or mentioning a Music World artist or song on air,” said one Radio One employee.

And this could hurt Mathew because his company primarily focuses on gospel music as the employee added,

“Radio One owns at least 12 gospel stations across the country – that’s the majority. It’s hard for artists to sell CD’s without radio airplay! Right now Music World definitely isn’t getting any from Radio One. Le’Andria Johnson’s song ‘Jesus” was in heavy rotation on Radio One stations one day and the next day she wasn’t getting any spins. New music by Trin-I-tee 5:7 and Micah Stampley, as well as recurring hits by Brian Courtney Wilson have been pulled as well.”
