Jay is merely saying that when it comes to booking acts, people just want to hear music at the end of the day.
from a certain perspective it's still somewhat inaccurate, alot of people still have "preferences" when it comes to music just like everything else in life.

Most rap fans wont go to a country music concert and most country fans wont go to a rap concert.

He's right, there is no such thing as black/white music....just music. All this "we invented this music so its ours" bullsh*t needs to stop. If the people that invented things were the only ones allowed to use the inventions this world would be fu*kED. We get it, Elvis stole rock and roll and made it a "white" thing. Well guess what - rock and roll has evolved into so many different sub-genres that there isn't even a thing considered rock and roll anymore. If Elvis never stole it and it were still a "black" thing it still would be the same today because things evolve over time. Same thing with the direction of Hip-Hop. Hip-Hop is still young, it's still evolving. Now to say if its evolving in a good way or bad way, thats a different story.

It's a shame that many of the same people who are crying for the end of racism are amongst those still trying to enforce it.

R.A.P. Music = Rebellious African People's Music. It's always been OUR music, but Jay won't admit this because he's afraid to lose his white fan-base.
All American music is technically OUR music, we created them.

Hip Hop music is African American music. Other races can enjoy it but it still the music of African American culture at the end of the day.

other than the plight of the black male, which only a handful of rappers rap about, what about hip-hop today represents African American culture? Is it the French clothing designers? or the glorification of Italian mobsters? or is it the smashing of white women?

you can pull that card, but we all know that in discussions like this, rap on the radio is the kind of rap that we're talking about.

Depends how relevant it is to the discussion to only focus on only that. So far I don't see how a section of rap represents the whole thing. You basically said rap of today yet even today rap on the radio isn't the only rap around.

Generalizing is bad mkay?
