I receive the monthly Prime Cuts and I think an edit was missed on one of the tracks for March. Number 3 Falsetto sounds like it has the f bomb said within the first 30 seconds.

The lyric is, " It started out f****** right here...."

Anyone else notice this?

The line is actually:

Started out talking right here
Putting it down like a motherf*****g mack

I just listened to it...the f-ing part is definitely edited out. With the edit it actually sounds like "Putting it down like a mother mack."

If it had an f-bomb we definitely would've heard about it when we sent it out in November to our weekly subscribers.

I'm going to listen to my version again right now. I'm not talking about the mother f** part. What I hear is before that.

It started out TALKING right here sounds like

It started out F****** right here.

I find it very hard to believe that the good ol' f bomb would pass through a single released for radio play and then placed onto one of JonesTM's compilations.

Why is it that some of the edits I've heard on the radio feel the need to leave in the F and the G?
The middle may be left out, but geez, it doesn't take much imagination with some of these edits to connect the dots. If they can't take out the entire word, it's almost pointless.

I mean really... When you can hear F__king, what letters do you think are missing?

This isn't directed at JonesTM by any means... I'm speaking strictly of music on the public airwaves.

Everyone has their own set of standards. Some people play it as safe as possible while others like to push the envelope.

Dave might have a better answer but from what I know the label is servicing them a version that meets FCC guidelines...and that's all they care about as far as lyrics (with exception to some stations who do clean stuff up a bit further).

That's why sometimes we clean songs up even further. The example I always use is Hollaback Girl. The radio version said "this shhh is bananas" and our version was "this is bananas" since we removed the shhh all together.

I'm not saying it was done on purpose. Thought maybe it was a mistake. Just sounds very iffy to me and if I can hear it that way, I'm sure others can too.

I'll just run it through Audacity and give it an extra little edit. Just so there is not question.

I'm just saying the tracks I heard, edited, could have just as well not been edited at all, as without the U, the gap basically made it soudas though it were still there. Not sure how that could get by the FCC standards, but it's obvious that it isn't good enough in my book.

Alot of those near miss edits in a lot of hip hop these days.

I've said before...that as a service that is supposed to be designed for DJs, the FCC has no clue what is appropriate for school events.

They are the Federal Communications Commission, their job doesn't focus on schools.

Anyway the disclaimer I give is anything I play is no worse than what is heard on the radio, and any school must provide a "no play" list if they still feel content is questionable.
