Emmis Communications Bans Ad

New York 's HOT 97 Radio Stopped from Playing Ad Poised to Reach


Minutes before its scheduled airing, Emmis Communications, owners of Hot 97 in New York, pulled the plug on the World Can't Wait, Drive Out the Bush Regime Ad. Hot 97 is "the" number one rap station in this city. The station itself had consciously approved the content of the ad knowing that this was both controversial and important. For some working inside the station, the idea of this spot reaching millions of urban youth in New York at this critical time was inspiring. Emmis Corporation's legal department called Hot 97 just as the spots were to begin to play.

The ad itself was a collaboration of artists Boots Riley from the Coup and Miles Solay from Outernational. It can break down walls.

Download the spot:


Youth today have come of age under the gruesome shadow of the Bush Regime. An entire generation has been betrayed, brutalized, criminalized, enlisted. The US Military saturates the youth "market" with slick high-tech ads aimed at turning young people into cannon fodder and the Christian Right spends millions to indoctrinate youth with politics of intolerance and punishment.

We stand at this unprecedented time in history. The energy and creativity of young people around the country will take this movement to the level where it will be unstoppable.

This cannot go down this way. Here is what you can do:

PLAY THE BANNED WORLD CAN'T WAIT AD TODAY before November 2nd. Send this email to everyone you know in the media. Call in to local radio stations, send to place you think you can get this on the air. Forward this to press contacts and get it posted prominently on websites. Get d-jays to talk about this on the air and announce it at gigs. But most importantly PLAY THE SPOT which says it all. World Can't Wait Press contact at 866-973-4463

Call Ennis Communications at IR@emmis.com or call (317) 266.0100, and let them know that their actions have only given us one more reason to NOT WAIT on November 2nd. Demand that they lift the ban immediately.

Call and Hot 97 at (212) 229.9797, or email them hot97@hot97.com Tell them to take off the muzzle. Tell them they were right to approve the ad and they should play it now.

Then download the ad into your cell phones and i-pods and play them everywhere!

Here are the words to the ad. You get the picture.

Hey, this is Boots Riley from The Coup. The world can't wait to drive out the Bush Regime!

November 2, no work, no school.

Widespread support for actions grows! Check it out
