Why Bribery

If someone really wants my company's business, why shouldn't he be able to do everything he can - including paying me off - to get that business?

To me, the whole thing with the roots of rap music was when the DJ had to supply all the music for the group with two turntables. And the whole criteria of what that DJ would use had nothing to do with what type of band made a record.
