Callers Outraged by "Gangster Rap" Jingle on St. Louis Time and Temp

After busting his ass for over a decade writing, performing and producing rap music with little big-time success, Chad Carter says he made a decision in 2009 to move "in a different direction." He teamed up with his brother, and the two began crafting tunes for Mike Carter's law business. They now have more than a dozen jingles.

"I just was just trying to make something catchy, something to stick in your head," says Chad of his work with his brother. "It's the goal of any song, really."

And perhaps there's hope for those callers of Time and Temp who don't appreciate the gangster rap jingles. Chad tells RFT Music that he's been working on expanding his repertoire to include a country version of the "Did You Blow?" jingle as well as a rock version.

"I like to think that I can write any type of song or any type of music," he says. "Never thought this was the way I'd make it on the radio."
