Rap stays with negative messages, glorifying gang culture and the prison industry, drug, alcohol industry makes a k!lling. Thats just a tip of the iceberg of the factions that profit from the negative messages in rap

Black people spend the most in the economy, mostly due to subliminal messages programmed into them.

Your post is naive
Black people spend the most huh? Bc of subliminal messages? Do you always wear a tin foil hat?

Interscope gave Kendrick Lamar that push, enough said
Before HE was major, Section 80 couldn't sell more than 30k
Did he change his style up? Did he go the Lil Wayne route? Not at all. You're proving my point.

He was dope from day 1, he appealed to fans, he got signed and pushed and now he's a huge success and everyone wants him on their songs.

So no, you don't have to be Chief Keef to get signed. You don't have to compromise nor stifle your art.

Please answer this

Out of both artist Kendrick and Keef who do you think has the largest white fan base?

Out of both artist Kendrick and Keef, who had the most successful selling debut?

And this thread is about what again?

racist
Is what you are when you call white people out on their bullsh*t.


The culture is white though. The best female artist is a fu*king joke and Eminem is in the top 5 when the only reason people too notice was because he was white.

Also.... Its funny how people will say rap is negative and then when someone like Macklemore comes along he's like the Messiah..


Same sh*t happened to Rock N Roll. The average black kid has no idea black folks made it.

A Nielsen study conducted earlier this year determined that Black people have the strongest spending power of any other race in America. Blacks spend enough to be the 16th largest country in the world.

that subliminal messaging is called advertising

Did you just compare Kendrick to keef? I'm wondering what the topic was again?!?

Only point to be made about there sells should be skill, nothing to debunk. Kendrick is just good, keef is a retard 15 year old, and one hit wonder

his album was better than krits

i didnt say he was a better rapper

only rookie with a better debut was kendrick

Nah I'm gonna have to disagree. LFTU was damn good, very good.

You've called everyone in this thread who disagrees with you a "lame a.ss square." It's a little too late to hop on the high horse. Keep cookin' though, I see you've put a lot of thought into your argument(s).

I feel like that's a whoooooole other story and I don't have the strength to type it all out My point was folks are pointing fingers at the wrong people.

White/Jewish execs are far from the most innocent people in hip hop (or in the world), but you can't blame them for absolutely everything.
fu*k you jack lol I call em how I see em I like to strike nerves when real topics arise. lol Btw my seafood dinner was a success
Now I can agree with the last part of your post. I don't blame them when artists are selling themselves short and dumbing their music down while consumers are bootlegging @ an all time high. No, they are soley not to blame.

Hip hop is in a weird space. The audience doesn't reflect the heart of the culture. Make no mistake about it, hip hop is an urban Black male art form at it's heart. From it's inception, it's sole purpose was to give a cultural & artistic voice to the Black male perspective. Nothing else. Once it started to sell outside of it's intended demographic, it was quickly co-opted. And just like every other form of music created by Black Americans (rock/blues/jazz being the most notable), it as been slowly tailored to appeal to a larger, i.e. White audience. But the core audience & artists have allowed the music to go that way. Once "gangsta rap" found a voice, the audience went head first into it. The lesser talented artists figured out very quickly that the peripheral audience will gravitate towards the aesthetics of "gangsta rap" and not towards the music that spoke to the issues that "gangsta rap" was birthed from. As "gangsta rap" gained a stronger foothold on the culture as a whole, a door was opened for the negative aspects of hip hop to prosper. As they prospered, it became evident that FINANCIALLY they were more solvent that their positive counterparts. At the end of the day it is first and foremost a business. As sad as it is, the days of hip hop giving a Black American male perspective are rolling towards extinction. And once it does, I'll stick to 80's/90's hip hop & soul music.
Way too deep way too real for Boxden.

They both have a large white fan base though. I'm sorry, what's your point? That white people in general control what sells now?

Why did Dre cosign K Dot though? Because he was dope to begin with.

We're going in circles here and I dunno what else to say to make my point clearer.

Y'all have a good night, fellas. A pleasure having a civil conversation with y'all.

Black people get so sensitive when race is discussed with Hip Hop yet who buys albums?....You can't complain about influence other than that dollar in a Capitalist society. All that other talk is for the birds. White cats and women support whoever they like so music will naturally cater to them.

And strictly from a multi-billion dollar business stand point....

Your job is to be proactive and guess/create/find what the market will do in the next month/quarter/year/decade depending on the market. This "record labels promote what is popular" would mean the companies are reactionary. You cant run a successful business from a reactionary stand point. It will fail.
