RIAA is cracking down on more than 470 new peeps pirating music, and guess what? Sixty-nine of those cited are students. These universities and colleges need to wake up before their students are put on blast. Another 10 bucks a month per student added to the housing fee is a lot better than having them raided by the FBI.

NOT DOWN WITH THE DIGITS
Forty-five Tennessee State Universities will not have Napster in their dorm rooms because the Tennessee Board of Regents voted against implementing a digital music delivery system for students. The reason: the regents didn’t want to incorporate the $9.99-a-month fee per student in their housing fees as they perceive that illegal downloading doesn’t pose a problem for them. Oh, really? Well, since the FBI just finished up 120 raids for intellectual-property piracy—including that Deer Valley Arizona School—I guess we know which schools to drop a dime on next. RIAA is cracking down on more than 470 new peeps pirating music, and guess what? Sixty-nine of those cited are students.

Diving into the music this week, Beyoncé bling-blings to #1. Liz, Ayelet and Mike were all smiles, grabbing that goal for their "Naughty Girl." Lookout for "Sunshine" ’cause Lil Flip plans to bring you some this spring. Sony also sets up Prince’s "Call My Name," while The Artist continues his sold-out tour.

ZLG’s Strazza and Sackheim up Usher to #1 Mediabase, blazing Top 5 phones e’rywhere. "Burn" looks strong for that #1 Hot 100 slot. "Confessions" heads Top 10. ZLG’s big story is OutKast with fresh "Roses" popping up good research at KPWR. It’s #1 TRL and Pop moves #2618. Re-adds abound at WMBX, KKSS, KIKI, WYIL, KYLD and WNVZ. WJMN spikes. I "Got It Twisted" for Mobb Deep and so do Eric, Karen and DJ Buck, as KUBE and WZMX bang. WQHT and WWKX move to medium and we’re seeing new love at KPWR, WJMN and more. Don’t sleep! R. Kelly goes Top 10 at Urban and makes moves at WDHT, WHHH, WQHT, WPHI and KWNZ.

J/RMG chanteuse Alicia Keys hits Top 15 Mediabase, growing +286. It’s #1 phones WJFX, Top 5 WGBT and KKSS. Oh, and Clear Channel’s consensus shows #1 research females 18-34. So, Michael and Artie make more moves. Cassidy f/Mashonda debuted #31. It’s power new at KUBE. KBMB’s Tosh says this is the one—it will "Get No Better." Proving Tosh’s point: WGBT gets Top 5 requests and Buzz says it sound great on-air. Yung Wun heads Top 25. "Tear It Up" captures curiosity calls at KUUU and KBTQ. Lucas and Weasel like it, too. This should be the sports ANTHEM! Sly Boogy impacts, with 30 already spinning. "That’z My Name" is +143 and poised to pop. Brian Michel powers at KUUU ‘cause research is hot. KTBT’s Juice, KKFR’s Johnny, KBLZ’s LT and KKSS’s Pete give it props.

Virgin’s virtually Top 10 with "I Pray." Andrea aces Amanda adds at WBVD and KTBT—with new action at KXME and WBTT. And, Beenie Man bounces back—re-emerging as the summer smash it should be. It’s big at WQHT, WJMN, WNVZ and WJMH with major callout. And it’s now official at WBBM, KYLD and KKFR.

Capitol’s Dilated Peoples is slammin’ at B96, KUBE and KSFM. Tony takes a triple-digit spin increase—nabbing Top 20. KPWR and KLUC have good research, too! It’s Top 5 phones at WBVD and KKFR. WLLD and WBVD report Top 10. New believers add Don Yute f/ YYT at KHTE, KDGS and XHTO. "Row Da Boat" heats up in Miami, El Paso and Albuquerque.

SRC/Uni act AKON is still #1 most requested at WZMX, and Top 5 at KUUU, WQSL and KKSS. It’s Top 10 at WJMN and determined to debut.

’s Marthe and Noah set up Shawnna f/Ludacris to "Shake That" Sh**" all summer. Weasel battled and the audience approved. We’re big believers and so is Erik, John.E, Booker, Tap, Tecate, Jill, Penetrate, Homie and more. It doesn’t take a genius to see Shawnna should shine.

MTV2 adds The Roots. Nino and Brian "Don’t Say Nuthin," as they stealthily set-up this smash. It’s definitely a departure for the Philly boys, but peeps are lovin’ it. Alix said it’s winning battles at KBTQ three nights running. WLDW’s Angel said he’s gonna look out for this hometown crew. And, it’s getting great reviews from Manriquez, Manic and Tosh—with more to come.

Props to Angel Garcia for grabbing the #2 night slot in his first book in Philly. Congrats to Broadway Joe, the new PD at KHTE. Toni Seville nabs APD stripes. Stu Robinson lands the MD gig at WBTP. And Kudos to KDHT’s Jay and Bradley, KKSS’s Pete and Dana and KSFM’s Byron and Tony for their killa books! Email or IM me: [email protected]
