Making money > limiting yourself


There is no benefit to being a slave to hip hop. If Nicki "kept it real" she wouldn't be on yall mind. Count how many threads on BX are dedicated to "real hip hop artist"....not many. That's not what catch yall attention, apparently.

This...

**Looks at billboard and see's nicki @ #8 on the top 100, with a pop record of course. They bash her for making pop, but pop records like superbass is what got her awards and nominations and stardom. If you can make a hit record, whether its pop, rock, etc. why box yourself in? You're only limiting yourself.

I didn't really think heteros3xual men had opinions on Nickis music.....I've literally heard less than 5 of her songs in full. I accept the fact they aren't for me, and rightfully ignore her.

IMO that's like a straight man talking about anal s3x, no homo......we just shouldn't do that

Eh....Lauryn Hill Queen Latifah Lil Kim Mc Lyte were all taken serious as mcs. Hell even Foxy Brown at one point. Bahamadia is probably one of the hottest females that never got shown love...but she also was not much to look at.
True, though I'd switch Foxy and Kim's positions in your post. Kim was one of the biggest sellouts in female rap in her prime, something Nicki definitely picked up on when copying her. Foxy, on the other hand, kept it Hip-Hop/only rapped.

As much as I hate to admit it, golden era hip hop is beyond irrelevant. If your music isn't affording you the lifestyle you want, you're doing something wrong. Fans crying out because she's not respecting the "art" should feel that same way when a new Madden game drops with nothing more than a roster update or a new "retro" Jordan sneaker comes out that looks like a shoe before it--the game is to find a formula that works and PIMP THE sh*t OUT OF IT. Art without money is dead and money without art is business, bar none.

Pop or not the song is garbage. Pop doesn't mean bad. Michael Jackson is the king of pop and he's got all kinds of classics. There are plenty of good pop songs. The problem is people are making too many sh*tty songs today in all genres. The lack of talent is ridiculous.

Idk if Flo Rida counts as a sell out but he makes this type of sh*t too. Only two rappers going full blown pop. Slight pop on a single can be nice, but this Starship sh*t is a full blown pop joint smh

there's hip-hop and then there's pop. this isn't really hip-hop, so she isn't selling anything out. plus in 2012, where every genre is blurring together, it's really difficult to sell out IMO.
