If you want to see a the personification of Hip Hop selling out just look at Cee Lo. Listen to Soul Food and Still Standing. "The ****** Experience" or any other track. Now look at that _____ today. He sold out. He stop f!ghting the good f!ght and said "fu*k it, I'll go super duper mainstream and just cash these checks." He even got Goodie Mob trying to make more pop sh*t just to rebrand themselves and sell.

Cee Lo is the personification of this discussion. sh*t is disgusting too because he was one of the dopest artists EVER!
Why only point out Cee Lo, the other members of Goodie Mob are as responsible as well.

Are you saying these dude's don't have any say in how they are dressed?
They are just children who do as they are told.

That's the problem I have with Scarface's opinion. He puts the blame on record
execs, but what about the artist's part in the business.

What if you got it backwards and the old Goodie Mob is what the label wanted and
now that Cee Lo has a little more pull in the industry he can do more of what he
wants to do and be himself. He said the label didn't want to release fu*k You, so
he put it out on You Tube himself.

half yall aint even blac speakin on wtf blac people buy.
you needa stop confusin theo huxtables of the world with n*ggas who in the struggle
its a reason dead prez isnt on tv or even mentioned on mainstream radio.
or why you see riff raff or mac miller on tv more than tech n9ne or crooked i or slaugherhouse

just cuz a handful of suburb n*ggas or dummies like b00ty dance music doesnt speak for us all. and scarface said if he ever does another geto boys album it would be done by ric rubin..so whats that say about how he views on race are? he said the truth mad ppl think but wont admit. mac miller isnt the beastie boys and blac ppl supported them when it wasnt even a common thing in hiphop to see white mc's. learn some history and youd realize hiphop is being gentrified.


the sh*tty rappers out now are out for a reason 15 yrs ago you couldnt use the argument that _____ or _____ is what blac ppl like cuz normally these were one hit wonders nobody cared about cuz u didnt have to it was actual dope mcs out and being promoted on radio and tv.
the majority of dead prez fans are white, and n*ggas damn sure dont fu*k with tech n9ne nd slaughter house

Oh. Lol That makes me feel a little better bout the situation then.

Not too much tho. Its still the same point, if this sh*t boiled down to skills and surviving on the chitterling circuit just performing from one black venue to the next black venue...the Chief Keefs, Boosie Bad Azzes, Gucci Guwops, Ricky Rozays, would run this sh*t.

All these lyrical/content based emcees would struggle. Why? The majority of current black youth can give two fu*ks about that lyrical/content based sh*t. The biggest reason music based on the "craft" survives is because of white fan money. It is what it is and been that way since fu*kin Muddy Waters and the day this sh*t becomes one sided and "EMCEES"...key word EMCEES start lookin more and more like Logic, Macklemore, Mac Miller and so on its a wrap for black people being the face of some sh*t they created. And this is what Mr. Scarface was eluding to when emphasized KEEPING THE "CRAFT".

Its happened to Rock n Roll (Elvis), Jazz (Kenny G), R&B (Justin Timberlake), and now fu*king Soul (Adele). If muthafu*kaz think it cant happen and its not happening to Hip Hop, ur just being naive. And white fans are cool, white people are cool there's nothing wrong with them supporting what they like, I support what the fu*k I like. But I'm informed I know where to get what I want and I care about the quality of what I'm paying for. Hell I'm even willing to pay...can we say the same for majority of black audiences? fu*k no. Not unless you can swag it out, stunt to, or get ratchet to it...and paying for that is a maybe.

youre right
the boosie/gucci rappers could survive on the CHITLIN CIRCUIT..

but The LITTLEBROTHER/KENDRICK types will always that international bread to go make. they love traditional hip hop across seas. On top of that the smaller hip hop venues here in america where most of the backpackers still go. I know dudes who make a living off doing shows across seas and they haven't had a major release in years.

Yeah, they say Ceelo was originally supposed to be in Kast.

That would've been too dope

I immediately thought of Scarface's comments when I went back and listened to this song a few minutes ago.

While appearing on The Combat Jack Show this week, Houston rapper Scarface shared the details of a conspiracy theory he feels directly involves today’s Hip Hop. According to the Geto Boys emcee, today’s music, particularly Hip Hop, is being dumbed down by those with power.

“I be looking at sh*t like a conspiracy…That’s the way I feel about music, man,” Scarface said. “You know what I mean? I feel like the powers that be are intentionally dumbing down our craft, man. I feel like they dumbing us down. Because the dumbest sh*t I ever heard is on the radio right now.”

He further elaborated on his conspiracy theory as he commented on “urban Hip Hop” versus “suburban Hip Hop,” and spoke on how “dumb” Hip Hop has become. Scarface later suggested that the powers that be are dumbing down the genre because it was becoming too great.

“To paint the picture that I’m trying to paint to you guys is it seems like all our sh*t is sounding really stupid and really, really dumb. Really, really corny,” the Texas rapper said. “And then, you know, you got the other sh*t that sounds really, really [great]…I wanna say this sh*t as diplomatic and as responsible as I can…When urban Hip Hop sounds like this and suburban Hip Hop sounds like that, I kinda feel fu*ked up. You know? It’s like our sh*t fu*ked up and the powers that be pour salt on the wound…I don’t even look at it as a threat or it being too fu*king powerful. I just look it as being too fu*king great.”

Scarface made similar comments earlier this year during an interview with Hardknock TV when he informed those watching that the people in control of Hip Hop are white and Jewish.

"I feel like we losing it," he said. "I feel like the people that are in control of what Hip Hop does is so fu*king White and so fu*king Jewish and so they don't give a fu*k about what the culture and the craft really is about."

face copping out saying he's a victim. i disagree.

first, i don't see a bunch of "whites and jewish people" making these songs about syrup and hoes. it's the culture's own fault if there's a market for that sh*t and consumers drive markets. it's what people want and not just because suits push it. face's market isn't potentially much bigger, even with more exposure. people want party records and they always will, and he doesn't do that. he's a legend, but not all legends are on the radio all day.
