Radio Station Pulls Tyrese's New Single


Yesterday Tyrese whipped his nearly 2 million Twitter followers into a frenzy after complaining that he'd been thrown out of a radio station just for speaking out against liquor stores across the street from schools in Delaware [click here if you missed that].

Well the station owner doesn't see it that way and says Tyrese was speaking down to Delawareans and that even though they were the first ones in the North East to play Tyrese's new single, 'Stay', that they would be pulling 'Stay' from rotation along with the rest of Tyrese's catalog.

Oh and he spilled some tea about Tyrese getting kicked out of his hotel for being an asshole...



From Tony Q
Owner and General Manager
WJKS-FM & WFAI-AM

Tyress I have heard enough of your lies. I am the Owner & General Manager of the station that "kicked" you off the air. Now you know full well what the reason was. In case you forgot I will remind you.

When you came into the station I was informed by my staff that you were not in a good mood. You went on the air and said that you wanted to stop and get a Pepsi and a candy bar. I am surprised that you couldn't tell the difference between a convenience store and a liquor store. You preceded to lecture to the audience that they had to do something about this. That liquor stores should not be near schools.

This I do not disagree with but in case you don't know, liquor stores as well as schools are controlled by the state. This is part that upset me. It was they way you spoke on the air. You stereotyped your own culture by calling them Homies ect.

Almost blaming Delawareans for allowing liquor stores to be there. The DJ on the air said to you that this is not the only station that has this problem, your reply was I don't care I am here now in Delaware.

As far as I know there are no liquor stores located across the street from a school. I have it all on tape, if you need to be refreshed. What got me real upset was that this was a way for you to promoted your event at the University Of Delaware. You were having a book signing and you were also going to perform. You know Mr.Tyress being a black radio station, its hard enough getting people to advertise on this format and yet when a performer comes to a radio station as a guest and then use the airwaves for personal gain is wrong. Why didn't the college, your record company or your management work out some kind of promotion to invite the people you were lecturing on the air to come to your event. What you did was made your on air time an info commercial. Now I do not expect that from a Black performer to use us. Imagine how I felt that Tyress is going to be performing in our backyard and we didn't even know about it. Nor did our listeners. Maybe you found out that day that it wasn't promoted and you decided to use us rather then support the station that supported you. That's right we were the 1st station in the north east to support you new song.

Also you have the order of what happened on the air wrong. You came on lecturing our listeners, you then asked the DJ if we had any listeners. What kind of question was that if we had any listeners. Then you went right into promoting your big night at the University of Delaware. You received the full air time you deserved. We did not cut off your mike, we did not let the audiences know that the interview was over but you did. You couldn't wait to tweet your words all over and let people believe that you were kicked off because you were talking about liquor store, that was not the reason. You got away with taking advantage of the only remaining independent station in the North East.

Its situations like this that are killing the Black Division of Record Companies. Do you think for one second if a Pop group was appearing somewhere and that Pop station didn't know about it, what would have happened. That's right, the record of that group would have been pulled. In this case how you acted with your lies you got your own record pulled from the station. You came to the radio station hot and you left hot. Oh by the way I understand that you made a big deal at the Double Tree Hotel behind the station. Something about a room, your mouth got in the way again and they threw you out of there too! You need to check yourself. It could be you.

Now you have taken enough of my energy I wish you well on getting your records played on the major station chains.

The GM sound like a female, seriously... Not excusing Tyrese's actions on anything. The GM
should've proofread this b4 sending it out

Tyrese is on a serious downward spiral, similar to Kanye's self-sabotage.

Twitter has revealed Tyrese's real personality, which in turn, has pretty much ruined his music career.

Get off of Twitter, fool...but, then again, the damage seems to be already done.

What the hell is a GM talking about? Artists always go to the local radio station to promote what they're doing in the city. And I know radio DJ's, Station Heads, and people who work in marketing and they often complain about black artists coming to our city for events but they don't reach out to black radio. This is a "I'll scratch your back, if you scratch mine" type of situation.

This sentence right here will tell you what the issue was:

"You know Mr.Tyress being a black radio station, its hard enough getting people to advertise on this format and yet when a performer comes to a radio station as a guest and then use the airwaves for personal gain is wrong."

What she's saying is stores that sell liquor may pull their adverts because of his complaints. Nothing else she/he said made sense enough for him to be kicked off or not come back from commercial with him if that was pre-planned. I'm sure her listeners aren't dumb enough to not realize that he's asking them to ask their policy makers to do something about it not that he's dissing them personally.

The GM came off looking like a fool. Would have been better off not saying anything.

If he was talking down to Delawareans, the actions of this radio station proves why. Pussies!

Oh so unprofessional from the radio station owner to actually respond to tyreses in that kind of way.. just so ghetto. its hard being a black owned business sometimes, but why make it sound like you on the street and and stoop to that level. thats more of the reason we can't get no damn where. ghetto folks trying to run somethin. Tyrese arrogant ass could have been ignored ,he has a right to his opinion. and don't you have other celebrities coming thru to be worried that after tyrese it's over?

Fact: Deleware is a backwards, House Kneegrow Infested wasteland. FULL OF RACISM. And barely alive Kneegrows put up with it while killing up each other and pretending to be from Philadelphia. And The Doubletree Hotel on King Street IS A PIECE OF SHIT HOTEL. If "Tyress" was TRULY full of himself, and acting like a star, he WOULDNTVE stayed at the pretty much Black Run Doubletree. He coulda stayed at The Hotel Du Pont where MOST celebrities go. He gave them a chance as I did, and they FAILED most likely as they did during my stay. Then the "crabs in the bucket" mentality and claws come out. True we can be Black, but the professionalism must remain AT ALL TIMES. I hate when I saw Kneegrows shuckin and jivin for WHITE customers, but being very relaxed and carefree with a "awww brutha I know you Aint tripping!" attitude. FUCK that Hotel, and FUCK Deleware.

A side of ignorance, please? said...

2:06 <<---- Just another nucca pulling the race card to excuse IGNORANCE! If he had pulled that in another state he might have received an ass whipping. His behavior caused the whole incident and as usual, the nucca could not wait to tweet about it. GTFOHWTBS!!

This non black GM of a Black radio station is full of it. This was about the Nig*a that did not stay in his place. All the degrading music played and to pull this song because he talked about liquor stores. This was about advertising dollars , which shows you what is truly being advertised to the Black community.

For you brothers and sisters that are uninformed yet quick to judge before know anything about someone, Tony Q is a champion and advocate of Black radio not only in Delaware, but in New Jersey. So you have little idea how ridiculous you sound playing the race card. Tyrese was on the program acting very cocky, loud, and ignorant as if he might have been drinking or smoking prior to the taping. Go to Kiss 101.7 FM in Delaware on the internet and you will hear part of the interview where Tyrese is being a jerk about the school situation. Then put your race cards away before you come back here.

TWO WRONGS DON'T MAKE A RIGHT

So if this Tony Q is such an enlightened individual you're telling me he couldn't talk to Tyrese in a manner where he could see the error of his ways regarding his inappropriate behavior? This Tony Q couldn't go to a commercial break or play a couple of songs and have a heart to heart or man to man talk about going forward with the interview in the appropriate manner?

But Tony Q could most definitely go out of his way to be even more ignorant professionally than what Tyrese was! And of course you will defend that and come here sounding like RWS posters are beneath your intelligence and awareness regarding this situation.

Tyrese is a clown and there's never a need to clown with a clown. This Tony Q guy caught feelings and seems to want 15 minutes out of this situation otherwise he woulda shut dafuckup and let Tyrese look like an ass on his own. If you gone let people know "I'm the owner and manager blahblahblah" at least use spell check and have one of your more educated employees proofread yo shit. Hopefully Aurthur stays the fuck offa twitter and just learns a lesson not to run up in somebody else' place of bidness acting like you big time.. and Tony Q learns a lesson to sit in the back in his suit/tie and leave the public speaking to the people he hired to do it..

This is some straight up ignorance. Tyrese did nothing more than any other celeb on any radio would do ,except he kept it real. While I don't agree with everything he does. This was a non -issue this station is trying to get free publicity. I listened to what they had on their site and nothing said made me think Tyrese was being a jerk , but that letter from the GM proves that he is.

No No No. How is the station trying to get free publicity when it was not a public issue until black ty made it one on twitter?? #thinkbeforeyoupost!

Anonymous said...

Somehow i think the blame is on both ends..obviously the GM found out about his other engagements after the fact be was butt hurt over that, tyress was butt hurt that he did not get what be wanted from the store the school was merely a way to legitimize his complaint.the store is controlled by the state huh? There is a cause behind his rant but in quite sure he was not championing it with his rant,more like bitching...and the gm was bitching too

FYI, neither here not there:

Tony Q aint black.
Tyrese was being Tyrese.
Tony Q always speaks directly to his stations listners. (History lesson for the youngins: back in the day media owners interacted with the community directly)
Tony Q ALWAYS announces his position as owner and GM.
