ARAB MONEY? BANNED????
Is this shit getting out of hand or what?
I just got word that Busta's 'Arab Money' has been banned on a few radio stations in the u.k.
(including my station, Kiss) I even heard a d.j. on another station was suspended over playing it?
(which I think is weird, why not warn said D.J. and then if he plays it, take action???)
This song has been doing the rounds for at least a couple of months. When I first heard it, I thought it might be a problem, but wanted to see how people reacted to it.
In the clubs, it's all love with people doing the Arab Money dance, people request it on my radio and mixshow all the time...
There's a new remix with a few big names etc (peep it HERE)
But in my opinion, the mistake that blew it up was he re-did the hook, that sounds like (I'm not 100% sure) a muslim call to prayer....if that's what it is...which I doubt, cause Busta aint that reckless, then I'm sure the Flipmode team would've anticipated this.....
Thoughts anyone? Are you Muslim? Does it offend you? What are they saying in the chorus?
