Has L.A. Reid Lost His Mind?

<a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1632456/20100223/shyne.jhtml"> Here at TSS, we get a lot of music submissions. We go over them all with a fine-toothed comb. As is customary in this line of work, a lot of the things we get are mediocre to bad. Generally, we pass over these songs to give shine to the material one or a few of us genuinely enjoys. We don't go around bashing submissions. That’s not our style. If these songs would have come to us from any other artist, I would have listened, said “wow, that’s really bad,” and keep moving. However, these tracks aren’t from any artist. These songs are from someone who has just been signed to a (reported) <a href="http://www.mtv.com/news/articles/1632456/20100223/shyne.jhtml">million-dollar contract</a>.
