Rosenberg is 100% right. It's about time people start calling mf'z out for putting this sellout trash out. In the 90's you got called out when you made sh*tty pop records just to make a quick buck.
If Guru heard this song and someone referred to it as 'Hip-Hop' he would be rolling in his grave:
It no longer falls under the "Wack rappers" for making trash Cd's/mix-tapes for quick bucks. This is a new era when people realized that BUSINESS and MONEY
last much longer than a talented entertainer. The reason why no one is calling other rappers out is because most
rappers are doing the same. However, the consumers are at fault too for just settling for it - it falls under the consumers as well. The more the consumers buy tickets, Cd's etc the more it is shown that the consumers approve of it. So, then the rappers/RnB singers who put out the music continues to see the fans are buying it then they keep doing it.
When artists go "mainstream/pop" it is designed strictly for BUSINESS and MONEY. It is a wise choice but terrible for entertainment. You know who mainstream/pop is setup for? WHITE people, that's who, they buy Cd's, tickets etc. I'm not saying black people don't buy but you know in the hood and downtown areas you have bootleggers. When you go "mainstream/pop" you also get endorsements, clothes, shoes, watches, commercials etc However, you are no longer the same talented person when you came in the door, you are now THEIR (elite, Illuminati) market front man like Russell Simmons, LL Cool J, Damon Dash etc. They sell what they had and still market it as if they own it for MONEY and BUSINESS. As we all know when a celebrity does or wears something the consumers buy into it just because so and so is doing it.
So, again consumers are to blame a hell of a lot as or more than the rappers/entertainers.
