Just like Eminem:

Elvis was doing Black music. White people called Rock "Devil's music" when it was just Black people. And by "Devil" I mean mostly the N word music.

That's how much American white people brainwashed themselves. So they stole it



Same thing with rap. How many Eminem fans have you come across:

"I don't really listen to hip-hop but I like Eminem because he's different."

White Americans don't have a culture.

I take that back.

They have a culture.

It's just filled with the most evil sh*t humanity has ever seen.

Black artists are the standard, have been the standard, and continue to be the standard in which EVERYONE is measured against. So when a Yt artist "copies" or "samples", it will always be mediocre in comparison.

Ray is partially right. Very mediocre and he benefited from being Yt. The only thing that throws me off - other legends like Little Richard, Al Green, and Jackie Wilson fu*ked with Elvis because they thought he took Black music to the pop charts and pretty much integrated it with Yt people.

Look up Otis Blackwell






Elvis' success and prosperity came from black people. Black people carried white folks for years and still do. They don't like to admit it though.

Y'all do the SAME sh*t with Mariah Carey, though. So spare us the drivel.

n*ggas on this site will sing Mariah's praises and talk about how much she did for hip hop, and took hip hop/r&b mainstream, etc, etc, etc...neglecting the fact that her skin complexion and the fact that she looks Yt, benefited her.

n*ggas on this site have literally shat on Mary J. Blige, in defense of the Yt looking biracial woman Mariah (IDGAF that her father is Afro-venezuelan...she looks JUST like her Yt mother), when it comes to hip hop...knowing damn well Mary was the TRUE pioneer of that sh*t.

I had someone tell me they don't like Hip-Hop it gives the wrong message but they dig Eminem.

The hypocrisy is so deep.

But there is a lot of real white artisans. I seen a Jacka performance and it was mainly white folk.

There is hype beasts of all races. I talked to some white professionals who know their music. They are usually quiet until they know if you typical or not.

I been to a studio and dude thought I was dumb so he was hitting me with all kind of hip hop jargon to the point I was offended. He was mastering my music but taking like 3 hours for instrumentals with the stems and like 3 channels each.

But I been to other studios when they see you have knowledge of music they open up. Shout to Dinero.

Post is all lies. Nobody sh*tS on Mary J in favor of Mariah, they just have a civilized discussion on who was the one to make rap features popular. You talking out your a*s now. And even then, most of the time people say Mary J was more influential with rap features than Mariah was

Mariah is also Half Black in case you forgot and she isnt a culture vulture either. She has always shown respect for rap, r and b, soul, even gospel music

I don’t think Elvis was that bad. He ain’t the king of nothing but he got a couple joints like Justin Bieber.

How Ray feels about Elvis is how I feel about the Beatles. That is the pinnacle of boring music. Not bad, but not nearly as interesting as their uppity fans make it out to be.

Backstreet Boys and N sync made better music than the Beatles. Not even to mention Radiohead and Nirvana. The Beatles just made weird ppl brave. They didn’t make any music with any staying power outside of what weird ppl like to force into films and ads.

n*gga please. n*ggas on this site have definitely shat on Mary in defense of Mariah. Not in general, tho. It's mostly when talking about her in comparison with Mariah.

Y'all love Yt people, and Yt looking people. I know Mariah is mixed. I said it in my post. IDGAF, though. The bi*ch looks Yt. She looks JUST like her Yt mother.

Mariah is the modern day Elvis. Face it. I know you're a Mariah stan and can't accept the facts.

Eminem is actually worse than Elvis.

Eminem has actually shat on Black people, used the N word, and made an entire song disparaging and sh*tting on Black women.

I don't think Elvis has ever done that.

That famous quote where he supposedly said "The only thing a Black person can do is shine my shoes" has not been authenticated.

Eminem is worse, bro.

Thank you for this reminder, dumbass.

I never said it represented the real world. I was making a connection with how this website treats Mariah Carey in relation to this discussion about Elvis, when the circumstances are similar. It's the hypocrisy for me.

Mariah is "loved' on this site because of her supposed impact on hip hop - her complexion helped her cross over and get credit for something BLACK artists had already been doing, like Mary. It's the same sh*t.

But thank you...for nothing.

Had Elvis embraced black people more, Ray and others blacks woulda accepted the sh*t. Eminem embraced the fu*k outta black artists so it's a big difference... Btw, this happened to Boys 2 Men and the Boy Bands like NSync, Backstreet Boys, 98 Degrees, etc.

Eminem embraced Black artists but made a song saying "Black girls only want your money because they're dumb chicks."

And apparently, he never had a Black GF

Explain.
